Re: I was given an Electron, but is it dead?

I have the system in a bin bag, but before throwing it out I thought I'd see if this was an easy fix. Never throw out an old computer, no matter how bad a state it is in. Something like that is always valuable to someone. Yes, at worst it would only cost you the postage to have it fixed, if we can'...

Re: Remarkable videos recently posted on Youtube

Right at the end of that video (about 13:20) you can see John Huddleston, of P.R.E.S. Ltd., in the background with his trademark white shirt and black beard. Shame the video didn't go round all the stands. Noticed a young (goodness weren't we all?) Chris Evans and, of course all the Micro User team ...

Re: I was given an Electron, but is it dead?

Yes, as stated above - the probable cause is the ULA. Of course, if you are near the ABUG South meeting pop along and all will, probably, be sorted - If not then you need to open your Electron and, in the first instance, just press-down on the ULA firmly whilst you switch-on (it's the big square IC ...

Electrons don’t die [-X

It’s late so I’ll post tomorrow with some things to try. In the mean time, if you could post some photos of what you’re describing, please - would be a help.

BUG in the new server update?

I've just posted 3 images in the BeebSCSI mini thread and notice a possible 'feature'! I loaded the images and then previewed them. At that point I 'lost' 2 of the images in the Add Files list (only the last image was listed) - so I couldn't add comments associated with each image. The images still ...

Re: New Cartridge Case - for the Electron and Master

An 'open' version would be easy to implement, I'll put it on the list (I've still to do the mods for the ATI). NOTE, however, although I've not tried this, you may end-up with the problem that Gerald has highlighted e.g. with 'standard' IC sockets you may not be able to fit it into a cartridge slot....

Re: Master Ram Board or Second Processors.

I think the MRB support for games is variable in that if a game is written correctly, using all the official OS calls, then it should work in all three switch positions - and will probably benefit from the extra speed. Some games are just too slow on the Elk and so may benefit from the Turbo positio...

Well it looks like we're good-to-go for a second (slightly smaller) batch of the original MGCs. I've spent the last month trying to find the AM29F032Bs at a reasonable price . . .
