Hi from the Netherlands

Post by Andre »

Hi,

my name is Andre and live in the Netherlands.
When I was a youngster the first computer we had in our home was a BBC model B.
Programmed a lot in BBC Basic and assembly.
Back in the 80 you could attend local BBC computer meetings (Big Ben Computer Club meeting), were we swapped software with other BBC users.

Also I remember I Played Snapper till my wrist were to painful to move.

Present day my hobby making leds blink using Arduino, but I recently bought a defect BBC B without a keyboard.

Thanks to this forum and the many useful and friendly replies to post from other people resurecting a beeb, i was able to repair the power supply and the pcb. It was very helpful to have a testrom tricky made (thank you very much tricky for sharing that). The BBC model B 32 K now starts.

Next step is finding an attaching a keyboard.

Kind regards,
Andre

Welcome, I'm sorry I have never gone back and added any diagnostics to the ROM, other than BREAK to skip to next test!
