Re: When to turn the soldering iron off dilemma

Lastly @derkom (i may have it wrong) was also attacked but escaped with minor injuries. Nah, I was only guilty of using my iron far too much, because I wasn't very good at it and ended up reflowing the whole board a couple of times. I could have just built two H4s with all that effort, but at least...

I think the problem is that it may have mutated already into a second strain which will complicate matters.
It has mutated into many strains: https://nextstrain.org/ncov

Re: Chinese 060 Sockets any good?

On another note, does anyone know where to find a PGA "pulling tool" (the one that looks like a fork with many teeth, to lever PGA chips off the socket)? The usual sources don't seem to come up with the right thing - or I'm looking for the wrong term. Seconded. I'm tired of nicking my PGA sockets w...

Re: Project STacy (STaceX, TOS 2.06 & others)

Despite my beautiful daughter being born over two weeks ago, I've managed to update two of my projects. Here are renderings of boards that already have been ordered. What's become of this project? I've recently acquired a Stacy 4 on the cheap (was sold dead, for parts, turned out only to have a bad...

Re: Future of the project.

I agree with the faster/enhanced/less compatible crowd. We've already got options when we want a compatible machine, including the current H4. There aren't really many options out there for a truly enhanced ST, and it would be fun to go down that path. You say you can't work on two boards simultaneo...

Re: Smonson's slow H4 build

Derkom said it just went on a bit wonky https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=2171&start=40#p29128 Right, to clarify my post, all I had to do to get it to fit was bend the legs on the reset switch metal shield a little bit, not even to the point that any damage was done to the orig...

@derkom Well done. Does the HxC firmware allow you to use Pin 2 voltage to feed to the H4 board?
I do not know. For now I just set up the jumpers appropriately, and unfortunately will now be otherwise busy for a few days, but I'll figure it out when I get back to it.

@derkom as said in this thread viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2549 I can't update AWSTATS.
Nod, saw that. Just noting that your stats as they currently are don't look particularly representative. :)
