MDFS Key Losted

Post by philb » Fri Aug 10, 2018 10:50 pm

I seem to have somehow lost (or at the most optimistic estimate mislaid) a large bunch of keys including, most distressingly, the one for my MDFS. Would anybody be willing to cut me a duplicate?

Thanks

Phil

Yes, but not sure when I'll get a chance! Will probably end up near a timpsons at some point this week :)

Awesome, thanks. No rush, I'll be on holiday in darkest Yorkshire for the next couple of weeks anyway.

Back from t'north...

It occurs to me that if anybody attending the Cambridge meetup this weekend happened to bring an MDFS key with them then that'd be an ideal opportunity for me to get a duplicate cut and save Daniel the trouble. There's a locksmith (and failing that, two branches of Timpsons) within easy walking distance of the museum so that'd be straightforward to arrange.

If I manage to get to my storage locker before Daniel finds his i'll grab the key out and get a bunch of copies done.

I'll do the Nexus ones as well.

That would be extremely handy, I don't have a key for my Nexus box:

It may or may not be correctly described as a "hard disc sharer".

I think that's a fair description (assuming yours isn't broken!). Admittedly the shared bit is read-only, but...

They're also the only Acorn related thing I can think of that uses a transputer, so there's a certain novelty value there.
