Re: RGB to HDMI using a Pi Zero and a small CPLD

Even the SMD components? I'm fine with throughhole, but I'm not sure my skills are up to soldering the smallest SMD components with a soldering iron.

Re: RGB to HDMI using a Pi Zero and a small CPLD

Wondering: for those of you who have soldered the board (or boards as appropriate) yourself; did you use a stencil when putting paste on the board? Or did you just apply paste manually?

Re: Virtual ABug?

FWIW, Whereby https://whereby.com/ works with just a web browser on my laptop (which runs Debian), it requests access to camera and microphone so you will know what you are getting into :-) . Not sure what the limit on participants are for the free plan.

Re: TTL RGB switch

And if you for some reason don't want to use Autodesk products, there is FreeCAD.
Or, if you prefer programming your 3D models, try OpenSCAD.

Re: Podule bracket and cover plate - 3D printable

The link in the original post is mangled. Perhaps this works better https://github.com/simoninns/Acorn-Arch ... e-Brackets

Re: Publishing multi-part projects on github.

Though each individual part would have it's own source tree in a separate folder, so you could just rebuild the part you want, especially as you need different tools for the AVR, CPLD and 6809. FWIW, as a user of many projects based on Github, this (a single repository with subdirectories for each ...

Re: Printing on Thingiverse

That isn't really the issue. I just want to be able to order stuff online and it turns up. Like PCB boards. It a good 45 min drive to the nearest Makerspace. Only printers in our libraries print paper, not sure if other UK libraries do this but not something our county council offers. FWIW, my own ...

Re: Scanning

FWIW, I like gscan2pdf (but I'm not using Windows, I moved on many years ago). Also, it is nice to add a post-processing step (if your scanning software doesn't do it for you): please OCR the PDF. As a friend explained to me: it doesn't matter that the OCR only get between 90 - 97 % of the text corr...

Re: Stuff inside an issue 4 Model B

Well, if there is space, you can do all the bending and soldering on a socket, and then just put the socket between the chip and the onboard socket. Of course, if components are soldered directly to the board you can't avoid some soldering either way.

Re: ICE T65/Z80/6809

Hello, new user here. I found this thread, and have an interest in the ICE, because I can use it on my other classic computers (sadly, I haven't any Acorn computers yet). So I have already ordered a XC6SLX9 board from 'eepizza', and it should be on its way now. But - it looks like Jason's level shif...
