Re: RJs Adventures in Mega land III

Interesting, I'll be keeping an eye on this one. I haven't touched my Ooom kakala Mega till I can square some ST's away.

Finest chineese steel. :D
Same here, six months ago. It looked like the stainless had rusted...... finest Chinese stainless. I was watching the box and bang. Walked into half an inch of water. I was quite surprised how loud it was.

Re: Stuff and Things.

NZ's South island to here took six weeks, from the UK to AU from Exxos was a month. I think it just depends how the wind takes it. Tracking has been abysmally wrong too, I wouldn't hold too much to that. I want to get more from the Exxos store but decided to finish my PSU recapping before embarking ...

Re: Stuff and Things.

Its coming good down here. Melbourne can vary between a few days or a few weeks. NZ just add four weeks to be safe..... It isn't really a black hole, more of a giant capacitor.

Re: Stuff and Things.

From home (NZ) to here, usually only takes a week. ;-)

I've been on the hunt for a 7800 for a while, trying to find an unmolested one to molest isn't easy.

Re: Top of the pile

Keeping track of everything is getting to be hard work. I've been recapping all the ST power supplies I have. List goes like this; Mitsumi SR98 x 2 ASPF34-4 x1 Tokin x1 DVE DSP-508A x1 The DVE is the only one I could get HV caps for locally. Its working a treat now. Interestingly the supplies with t...

Re: ST KB in Mega ST case

I pulled the PCB out of the freekeys and checked it out. There is a diode, cap and resistor. The resistor is 32k, cap is 2u2 63v.

So it looks like resistor 32k to 5v from TX, cap TX data to ground. Diode is across TX to 5v. Reset is grounded.

Re: ST KB in Mega ST case

Ah, I see. I seem to recall all this when I towered my Falcon. I have an ST keyboard in a free keys case hooked to that. I have also used the MegaSTE KB with that, but, the mylar on all four of my MegaSTE/TT keyboards has gone to crap so I need to repair them. The reset line I have hooked to the PC ...
