Re: Weeknight 'Virtual' Dev session #5, Thursday 22nd October 2020, 7pm - 10pm

List updated up to here :) Unfortunately (well, fortunate for me) I'm away on holiday on that Thursday. I will endeavour to attend the following session in November and maybe even see if I can get the CRTC Registers masterclass together by then. Enjoy! And thanks for the 2 x MC's delivered so far! :...

Re: Remarkable videos recently posted on Youtube

As you don't see too many 10 hour conferences comprised almost exclusively of ex-Acorn/Acornsoft speakers nowadays(!) I figured I'd also post the links from the 5th September Virtual ABug here, for the benefit of anyone that doesn't follow the posts in the events sections ... http://abug.org.uk/wp-c...

Re: Electron Solidisk EFS

Hi Ian. I used to format my Solidisk Winchesters on a BBC using the Beeb version of the Solidisk Winchester Utilities disc (which I've attached).

I don't know if anyone clever reading can adapt the Wini formatter to work on an Electron?

Is there an agenda yet? I've been quite tied up this week and haven't approached anybody about presenting and so far, only Kees and Tricky have indicated they have something to show. There's no masterclass either so tonight's session will be pretty much open. We'll probably stick to the following b...
