Re: London Show / Sat 26th October 2019

I've disk-overed a disk duplicate machine I won in a commercial auction a few years back. I managed to duplicate a hd adfs disk on it, but not a dd disk (old 800k variant).

Re: Cambridge Sept 2019 archiving thread

Sorry for the delay. Its the busiest time at work, and as noted, I've not been able to catch up on these bits. I've even got another 4 hours of work before I get to look at this. But I'll try to get to it after or tomorrow.

Cheers!

Re: Cambridge Sept 2019 archiving thread

Hi, The files I digitised follow. Most worked perfectly, but a couple failed. I've got them in Wave format, so will upload them separately. I've also scanned the covers, and a couple of manuals. etc. The Hulk was too big for here, so I'll resize and upload to that post. MODS.. I'm not sure if these ...

Re: Advice needed on creating a UEF file from a tape

Hmm theres still a bad block there... I got one or two on uef conversion for this tape too. That's not good / useable right? I used Adobe Audition and a creative usb interface to record it.

If there are any kind, willing individuals available, I'd appreciate a copy of the software and manuals for the Valiant Computer Interface (CH32466).
Actually, I'm after that too, so I'll ask if I can do that when I'm doing the tapes. Guess that means I'll need a beeb as well..

Re: Cambridge Sept 2019 archiving thread

I'd be happy to help with tape archive or scanning if needed? I can do it in between showing bbc tv stuff?

I have a scanner or two I can bring.

Re tape archive, what's the "usual practice" for this?

Pack what into the keyboard housing? There's only a keyboard in the keyboard housing of my Master Compact. Ate you sure? I thought only the PSU and disk drive is in the base.

Ok, enough of the clickbate title :lol: Im sure it's been documented, but its been bothering me this evening. Given all the space, airflow and convention of housing a motherboard in the 'base unit', why did Acorn choose to pack it into the keyboard housing? I wondered if it were a way to create an '...
