Worth Taking a Look At

Forum rules
You're welcome to trade Acorn-related stuff with other forum members here - the rule of thumb to follow when trading, is that items or services offered should be of interest to our Acorn community. Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of. This forum is not for advertising items you have for sale on ebay or other third party marketplaces.

There is this collection of Brilliant Computing software and documentation on eBay at the moment.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BBC-Micro-pl ... SwmFde79LO

All the software looks to be MIA. I'd bid myself but it is buyer collect in Harrow and so is not really an option for me. Anyone interested who lives locally?

Aberystwyth isn't that far from you then ...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Comp ... 4772179812

Large collection of old computers, I spotted several Electrons, a Compact, a Master, several Atari, ZX Specy, Commodore CBM, various disc drives and monitors as well.

The blurb says a couple of Arc's as well, it's collection only, I'd be interested in some of it but I'd get killed if I turned up home with all that lot.

Bidding starts at 200 quid...

It's nearer than Harlow, but still a two-hour drive that isn't technically legal this side of Offa's Dyke at the moment.

I, likewise, would have marital troubles if I came home with that lot! :shock:

Regarding the Torch Z80 co-pros, I don't see a power connector. Does it get power from the Tube?

Yes, the Torch Z80 card gets its power via the Tube connector. Some hardware details of the Torch Z80 card here :wink:
The Acorn Tube connector (pin-out details in this document) has multiple +5V pins.
