Thanks for the write up. At this late stage, I should say that I was really impressed by the GUI stuff done by Kees, and especially with the integration with the buttons and LEDs and things. I'll have to get my photos uploaded at some point and break out the Atmel gizmo I picked up in Britain!

I've now added some pictures to an event page on the Retro Software Wiki.

I didn't think I'd taken many photos last Saturday, but I've got together a nice 62-picture set, hopefully ready for the BeebMaster September update!

Hi guys,

I've taken the liberty to update David's event page with some explanation of my Atom with hard- and software I demonstrated in Manchester in the Lass O'Gowrie.

Greetings
Kees

Thanks for taking the time to add that information, Kees. I may add captions to the pictures.

Did you get your Python installation working on Windows? Sorry I had to leave at around that time - I had to visit some shops before they closed.

Speaking of loading things onto Electrons, I should really have brought along the latest demo of Castle Raider today. Feel free to give it a go if you get a chance tomorrow. Maybe Kees can do something like the title screen on the Atom. :D
I also had a great time, love these meetings!
The waving flag looks great but ....... hhmmm, sounds like a challenge :lol: :lol:

Hi David,

Wow! That looks much nicer than my version. You added more detail to the text - I wonder if I can do that without making the data requirements too high.

Yes, could do with some lass-based retro-geekery to get me through the last part of winter...
