Found: Disk Drive for Electron

Post by -B- »

Hi All,
I'm looking for either a PRES AP4 or a Slogger Pegasus or equivalent.
Doesn't have to come with a drive as I can source those locally.

Cheers,

Neil.

EDIT: OK so after reading about Prime's RAM/ROM board I will also be looking for a nice example of a Plus 3

or, with a Plus3, you can throw the ADFS1.00 rom out the window / use as shoe grip :wink: :lol:

and blow this to eprom:

and can confirm works super :D , but PAGE will be at &1900 like the beeb.

so with Phill's super wooper board, you get DFS &E00 :shock: =D>

....no need for ADFS, as reading your Welcome post, you and me will get on just fine, along with other superior members, you know who you are 8) :wink:

Neil, there is a Plus 3 in this listing on Marktplaats, if you are still looking for one.

And if you're not interested please let me know and I'll buy it. But you probably want it more than I do and I don't want to compete with a fellow StarDot member.

Thanks guys, I've asked the seller if it is still available. I'll keep you posted.

It is the one that is also on eBay, which I have already enquired about.
They are selling a collection of stuff on someone's behalf due to what I can only assume is a death. They have limited access to the place where all the items are stored.
I asked them to check if the PSU was there next time they went to the place but they came back to tell me they couldn't find it so it is being sold without a PSU.

I have now got a PRES Plus 3 interface so not in as much of a need for a Plus 3 but when the right one comes along I will buy it.

IIRC There's someone on Amibay who has the PSUs for sale (afaik you can probably get away with a DC laptop supply too), so you should go for it anyway if you're still after a plus 3!

I got a similar answer when I informed about that Plus3. IMHO one should not offer one object on multiple auction sites [-X

I did not bid on the Ebay auction, yet.

OK guys, how do I close a Wanted thread?

I picked up a PRES AP3 off eBay on Christmas Day and I have just today had my offer accepted for an Elk, Acorn Plus 1, Acorn Plus 3, amber monitor, tape deck, tapes, cartridges and books for €40!!!
It looks a bit discoloured but I have a full set of what I was after and a spare Elk!

Any tips on explaining to your girlfriend why even more hardware is coming into the house?

Got what you want? Then edit your first post and change the title :mrgreen:

Don't tell your girlfriend/partner if you can smuggle it in without being seen :wink:

Or try: tell your girlfriend/partner that you needed just one of the items to replace one of yours that is faulty, but that you got a good price and it would be a shame to dispose of the other items, as they are difficult to get at the price you paid.

Failing that, offer to buy her some new shoes :mrgreen:

Wait - ive been gazumped. That's the problem with Marktplaats.nl if the seller gets a better offer, he can change his mind.

Now you'll need to contact PRIME and ask for one of his RAM/ROM boards for your Acorn Plus 3 - They're a must!
