Re: Second floppy cable for Archimedes range

Thanks Andy, money received, will post this morning.

As Daniel says, the wiki is really good, that is what I used and there are many posts on the forum about flashfloppy configuration. It is fairly straight forward.

Enjoy...

Second floppy cable for Archimedes range

Hi, I have a second floppy cable for sale, kindly built by lcww1 to allow me to connect a normal floppy and Gotek at the same time to my A4000. I've now been through my pile of floppies in the loft and all are archived. Built as per this thread: <https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=14...

Is this the demo you are looking for? It is a Spark Archive (DDC) rather than a ZIP file.

Re: Teletext Paint Program

There was a BBC and Risc OS WIMP application called octave which was part of the Derbyshire LEA DESC-IT suite of applications which was a MODE 7 Teletext paint style package. I've not been able to find it again, or find the floppies in various lofts. :-( I'm going to try and contact a couple of Derb...

I bet everyone is watching these already, they will go for a lot as they are quiet rare. I won’t bid myself, just watching.

Probably something someone should reverse engineer and sell.
Certainly a good idea, also it would be nice to have the Econet tester reversed engineered and modernised too!
