Re: LOLPRICE

eBay have announced that from 3 March 2019, private sellers will get 1,000 free listings per month. Expect to see an avalanche of absurd and LOL listings from then on.

It's just occurred to me that I completely forgot to return the 4-way power switch with the long cable to the person who lent it to me, whose name, embarrassingly, I don't know! They seemed like someone who was involved in organising the event or at the very least someone who had come very well pre...

Re: ABUG SOUTH 18 to 20 January 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

I am glad that everyone had such a good time and that we had such a good turn out (including a few new faces - which is always a good thing). It is always you guys (and not the organising of the event) that makes it such fun. I am planning a return visit later in the year with extra Haribo and choco...

We start (with breakfast) at 8am each morning.
We are pretty much at capacity this weekend. How much kit are you planning to bring?

ABUG SOUTH 18 to 20 January 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

This is a relatively large venue. However, it is going to be well attended and we are probably pretty much at capacity.

Please can I ask those with little or not kit either to make sure they are only occupying half a table or, better still, form a group on one of the round tables.

Thanks.

Will there be anybody at the meeting who knows about MediaWiki wiki admin? At some point in the past the image upload to BeebWiki stopped working and I've been trying to get it working again and failed. I can have all the admin and backup files with me on my laptop.

Re: ABUG SOUTH 18 to 20 January 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

Two important updates. First, the hotel has confirmed that they have 'about' 22 tables which are 6ft by 2.5ft and 7 round tables which are 6ft in diameter. That means we would, in theory, have enough tables to allocate one per attendee. However, I recall from last time that the round tables were rat...

Re: BeebSID

There's absolutely no reason why it wouldn't work with the Electron. The BeebSID (like all devices on the 1MHz Bus) requires external power so a 12V device would work just as well on the Electron as it does on the Beeb. The AP5 also has a 6522 on board - so any software that requires the 6522 timer ...
