ABUG Canada West July 6 2019 Meetup #12

It was a cool, grey day and we had grand plans - things did not progress as anticipated! Ed kindly gave me a spare Retroclinic CD with all sorts of useful files on it. A recent project saw the installation of a Raspberry Pi Zero onto an internal Retroclinic Master Co-Pro board in my Master, so the C...

Re: ABUG Canada West - June 1 2019 Meetup #11

A beautiful sunny drive up to Squamish was capped by a great RiscOS day spent with Ed playing on our 32 bit machines. I've got quite rusty on using RiscOS so it was a good recap. The first thing I noticed was how much heavier my boxes of 32 bit kit were compared to the 8 bit machines which seemed mu...

Saw this on eBay! I know this is tricky, but do you think this motherboard is salvageable?

Re: Choice of emulator for the high score challenges

Jump in anyway and get a feel for how the HSC all works! Then you'll be all set for when the next season starts which will come round soon. That's what I did and it worked well. Always good to have new people playing! And Impact is a great game - it's fun to try all different types of games :D

ABUG Canada West - April 27 2019 Meetup #10

On a sunny windy Spring Day Ed was greeted by 8 bit computer demo music - not quite as inspiring as the Ample music that Ed sets up in Squamish! We have a traditional gift exchange, so Ed kindly gave me a North American plug and cable to go with the new Meanwell PSU, and I gave him 3 Acorn CDs. Firs...
