Hi All OK - here's the first batch (BBC Model A/B to B+) of earliest serial numbers per model as extracted from the "How Many Sold" thread and other places. Makes interesting reading seeing the S/N's grouped - there's definitely a pattern to the S/N allocation, but I suspect unless you know the indi...

Re: Earliest examples of each machine?

Good points, When I get a chance I'll pull the earliest serial numbers out of the other thread, but I'll break them down by supplier/model version where necessary. Chris's Acorns site also has a lot of serial numbers recorded - I'll take a look there too.

Earliest examples of each machine?

Hi All, Being a bit of a historian myself, I'm intrigued finding the earliest things, and the "How Many Sold" got me thinking who has the earliest recorded serial # for each acorn model/peripheral out there. So if anyone's up for a bit of a search, I'll throw in some potential candidates from my col...

Re: Mystery System? Backplane Circuit Diagram

I think I found what it is.

There's reference to it (107.000) in the 1MHz Bus Application Note but the diagram is missing.

http://chrisacorns.computinghistory.org ... AN/003.pdf

So its possibly the missing diagram.
