Speakers wanted

Hi everyone,

I'm after some speakers. Not the electronic kind, but the human kind who talk about stuff!

I'd like to do a Beeb Bodybuilding Chat (do you see what I did there?) at a ROUGOL meeting. Most (probably all) of our members started out on Beebs and many still have them, so it would be good to show how to make good use of them. This would also be good for some of the newcomers to the forum who have just unearthed their Beeb from the shed and are wondering where to start.

Things that could be covered include some/all/none of the following:
- pros and cons of the CF/SD/MMC storage addons
- where to download disc images and how to mount them to play old games
- getting data on/off Beeb floppies
- setting up Raspberry Pi co-pro to play Tube Elite :-) (funnily enough, most of our members also have a Pi lying around!)
- other addons such as BeebOPL, enhanced video ULA, etc???

Suggestions for other things that people would like to hear about gratefully received, please post them here for discussion.

This would probably be best with a couple of speakers each talking about the bits they know best. It's also less intimidating that way :-D

Our meetings are in a pub/restaurant near London Bridge and take place on the 3rd Monday of every month, so the next few dates are 21 Aug, 18 Sep, 16 Oct, etc.

Volunteers please? Drop me an email on the ROUGOL address -
