Hi Dave.

I was thinking if a small right angle riser would allow it to fit in the rearmost cartridge socket and still allow you to fit the top lid of the Master back on.

Re: Odd Mains Plug

Hi All
I have some of those plugs they where sold with a socket strip for connecting HI-FI seperates and TV Video recorders and Satellite sytems.

The socket strip screws on the back of the cabinet to keep all the mains leads tidy.

Re: Help with ROMS

Hi Lee.

I seem to recall reading somewhere and can not find it again that there was rom that enabled Master emulation on the Model B.

But what was involved I do not know possibly a lot of extra ram needed.
