Re: exxos blog - random goings on

This one fits better.. But now the mains socket Won't locate properly because that part of the plastic is now 1mm higher and I forget to lower the part under the socket :lol: :roll: In any case, the hex nut seems to work pretty well...

It is an interesting idea, similar to what Sega did with the Megadrive I believe. It has a 68000 and a Z80 inside.

I have no end of trouble with turned pin sockets :( Even the round header pins (albeit from China) Into have some sort of release on them which causes a bad connection, so I have to keep...
