Re: BeebEm Mac - Info

Just confirming what others have said. Having been in Catalina since it came out it seems very stable. But yes 32 bit apps just don’t run. I think apart from beebem most things had a 64bit version or I didn’t use the app any more. The biggest killer is if you have a lot of games, as they won’t ever ...

Re: New meber from the Netherlands.

Welcome, you are lucky in that the Netherlands is one of the few countries outside the UK that does meet-ups. I am sure you can find some one to have a look at those drives.

I think it might still need MBR rather than GPT.
I have had mixed compatibility with various sticks/cards, no discernible pattern, but I didn't know about MBR/GPT.
Like tricky I have fun with some stick happy and others not, for no obvious reason. But certainly worth try to repartition it first.

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

It would be interesting, on a Beeb, to compare one of these, a logic probe and a bench scope. Not that I have time myself.

Re: Philosophy of Disc Preservation

I don’t have anything useful to add, but it is very interesting after all those years of clever people adding copy protection, other clever people removing it, that we now have clever people ‘putting it back’.

I am not sure I mind either way as long as I can use it.

Re: WiFi weirdness

You haven’t turned on MAC address restriction on WiFi access point? Or running something the laptop doesn’t support? Is there any sort of errors in the Linux or AP logs?

I sometimes find if Linux doesn’t connect to WiFi if you restart network it starts working.

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

The first rule of oscilloscopes: Any oscilloscope is better than no oscilloscope. Not if the signal displayed is garbage. And you could buy a decent second hand one instead (although $70 that would be a challenge) Edit: should be okay for beebs though Edit2: I did have a quick play of putting a 25M...

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

5 times is usual quote by scope manufacturer to pickup 5th harmonic. So you would probably get a distorted but recognisable signal with 100Mhz, but 200Mhz should be fine. 60Mhz (digital signal) on my 350Mhz scope is fine. Having watched the video for the mini scope I Don’t think 24Mhz would be reali...

Does sound something specific then. Although not obvious why that would be different between a pi3 and a pi4.

Re: Odd Peripheral Goings-On With RPi4

It's not clear from your post if you booted without HDMI cable at any point - that, I think, is the thing. Removing HDMI after booting won't, I think, cause any bother. It ran with nothing but power plugged in for days, and I could always get to it to ssh via WiFi. I was heat soak testing it. It wa...

Not a giveaway but if anyone wants to offer me £50 and take an external data centre off my hands tomorrow. Cost £120, 2.5 years ago. Must be rare now that Mark doesn't make them any more (and the externals were always a bit rare anyway) :-) It has hardly been used.
