Re: TTL RGB switch

Just a thought . . . Those DIN sockets are designed to be fitted side-by-side and still allow enough room to get the plugs in and out! Would shrink the board down a little and allow a neater box . . .

Re: OSWORD &7F on DFS vs MMFS

(I'm assuming this is using the Electron Printer Port build of MMFS) I wouldn't have thought so, as it's in a cartridge! Ah, but I believe all of Ramtop's interfaces re-implement a Electron Printer Port (EPP) interface in the CPLD for driving the SD Card, even the cartridge port one. Dave Ah! OK . ...

$70 100MHz (?????) 'scope

This would, probably, be ideal for fixing Beebs and Electrons - may just be good enough for the Archimedes too?? Note: Just a see-if-there-is-anything-there 'scope!

Re: Yarrb - redesigned

I use one of these with a block of aluminium on to enable a stable temperature. Set to about 150C and using a fine nozzle on the hot-air-gun it takes seconds just going around the pins and then lifting with a fine point.

I link to a YouTube Video in my MGC sales page. I suppose you could show either a screen with your eMail address on or just hold-up a sheet of paper with it on . . . You could also show each page of the User Guide - one at a time - and let the reader pause the video to read it!!

So all I need to do today is pack this all up for Dave, and I can hopefully post it off in the next few days, safe in the knowledge that if anything doesn't work, he can update the board himself :)

Re: Acorn Electron - What the AP5 is for

I must go back to investigating the Electron PSU. As capable as it is, it’s working way beyond its design specifications. So a replacement, I think, would be appreciated by users who like expanding :mrgreen:
