Re: The sound of BBC graphics!

Mine was one of the first A1200 (via the retail channel at least) as I bought it before it was officially launched in the shops. No idea what revision and no way to tell now. Dixon's were meant to be doing the official launch in the next few days on the high street (they didn't even have any boards ...

Re: What would a Master 128+ look like?

With the current master you can swap the econet board for a Sprow Ethernet board. Perhaps you could have both using same port, and either auto detect, what it was connected to, failing that a good old fashion manual switch. (Assuming two ports was not an option) Err, given that there are spots in t...

Remove Econet. Noo! I need the Econet. Removing it removes its entire functionality. It's a pain in the ****s doing development for the Elk purely due to being unable to grab files from the server that every other machine in the house can. I knew my views on Econet would be controversial! What woul...

Re: Ethernet upgrade for the Master series

Yes and no. I wrote a telnet client for Sprow Ethernet. Never quite got it finished, and in basic need to use second co pro to get enough speed/memory. I rewrote some of the routines in assembly that vastly speed it up. But currently I am time starved for hobby stuff. One day I will get back on it ....
