SJ Research Econet Bridge User Manual and Key ?

Hi All, So I have a SJ Bridge here which appears to work ok. I'm looking for a PDF of the user / setup guide if it came with such a thing. Also this unit didn't come with an Admin/Run Key , so I guess I'm unable to do much in Run mode. If any of you kind chaps happen to have a spare key or wouldn't ...

Re: ABUG EAST MIDLANDS (Winter Warmer) 17-19 November 2017 (Leicestershire)

For me, the best part of these events is the social/interactive/collaborative stuff. I say that knowing that, at times, I am guilty of having become rather too engrossed in the project I am working on to the detriment of socialising. However, we use the rooms, it is important that we don't divide i...

(split this off as it's not really EUP related) - Apart from the dire case (mine's actually still in perfect nick), the brilliant thing about the Rombox Plus was the ability to use eproms and sideways RAM as well as cartridges. The lack of analogue port really was no loss, and the price was less th...
