No such variable at line 300. It's the space after TAB.

Mini HDMI?
It's about the same size as standard HDMI or DP, approx 15mm x 5mm.
It looks quite like an old Xbox connector, but I've never owned one (or any similar console) so if it is I don't know how it's ended up with me!

Re: My new beeb - A to B? But why no analogue?

Thanks Kazzie, I will certainly do that asap. It’s an Issue 3 board.

I do have another self-inflicted problem now though – I’ve broken one of the male terminal posts at VCC3. The spade connector was stiff but I did think I was being relatively gentle!

Hi all. Exactly one year after I got it, it has stopped working :( It has been behaving badly recently, often displaying 16K instead of 32 and also the common graphics corruption - Ferranti 5C094E-3 ULA (1982). So today I decided to clean up the ULA by removing the decades old thermal porridge and u...

Model B ROM positioning

Is there a "correct" or "recommended" layout? Does it matter? From what I've seen and read the defaults appear to be:

Issue 7
IC51 - OS
IC52 - BASIC
IC88 - DFS
IC100 - Empty
IC101 - Empty

Issue 3
IC51 - OS
IC52 - Empty
IC88 - Empty
IC100 - DFS
IC101 - BASIC

Not neat, not clever, not quick, not elegant but this is what me and my son did together a few years ago to find the first 100 primes. He was around 10 years old and was keen to learn the basics (no pun intended) of programming. We added in line 80 when he realised that although the number was not p...
