Re: My Top 85 Games for the BBC Micro

Hi Colin,

Nice series, i'll be following this... :D

Just the slightest bit of constructive criticism, I feel the aspect ratio of the BBC screen is a little off, a bit stretched vertically.
Though it probably only bothers me being a pedant! :roll:

Is PH601 PC111 an opto-coupler / opto-isolator? [I’m nowhere near a PC, so can’t access and documents].
If it is, that would explain the strange voltages you were finding.

Yeah an opto-coupler

Re: LOLPRICE

Not if someone buys it. :lol Indeed. You can get a 'real' BBC for that money, nicely refurbed and upgraded. Does this Epson PC look a reasonable collector's price?
