Re: BBC Micro (non working), other kit and mags, etc.

Maybe someone down south could collect it and divvy the bits out to everyone, with everyone donating to the British Heart Foundation as requested. I'd be interested in the 3" drives, and 3" disks.

Would one of those work as a second drive? It's a direct replacement drive for 3" drives.

@lardo it can’t be worse than the msx version, that’s terrible
It's probably the same, the Tatung is a very close relation to an MSX.

Re: Today I received.....

My Alpha was the only machine I wish I'd never let go. Although it went to a good home. The best classic Acorn machine in my opinion. Big CPU grunt and RO3.1.

Re: Karma - The Flight Trainer

If I remember right before I sold it, I wanted to do a video of it, but it looked like it needed some serious learning before you could play it properly. I have a feeling it had proper motion style mechanics, that needed a counter thrust in the opposite direction.
