4corn update 20/11/2020 - Drawing Office indices

http://www.4corn.co.uk/articles/do/ This contains all the part codenumbers that Acorn gave to pretty much everything from the circuit diagrams to the software on disc, to the labels on front panels.

Re: A3010 worthwhile/worthy?

Well I like the A3010 as it's the one my family got for home :) Ps the market targets for the 3 ARM250 machines were A3010 = home A3020 = education A4000 = business Personally I think they wasted a lot of money designing 3 different motherboards for the range instead of one with different connectors...

Re: Wolfenstein 3D (Powerslave) Program Disc - HFE/Kryoflux/etc image, disc or source code

I don't think I have a copy of the wolf3d disk image.

But I'm pretty sure this is the wolfsrc archive, that I downloaded back in the day.

It's in spark format I think, not the zip I had to use to upload it here.
