Re: New Falcon a lemon?

It's been changed and now I guess I need to reset the video to deal with NTSC? It's not quite that simple. You would need to remove or disable the PAL clock circuit and fit an NTSC oscillator at U65. The CF doesn't seem to be dos formatted and my pc cannot read it. They are dos formatted, or at lea...

Re: To hot for me at 30c!

Being in Australia I'm quite used to days getting up to and above 40C - Oddly enough, when I was in London a few years back it was about 30C and boy I felt it! It must be that the buildings there aren't designed for those kind of temperatures. :)

Cost of obsolete components.

So I damaged my CT60e. It's a long story. I was suspecting DS1085 so I ordered some from RS... $1.25ea... Seems fair. Send me a hand full. Turns out that I had ordered DS1086 (poor eyesight and the ever increasing MacBook resolution) which isn't pin compatible with the DS1085 on CT60e. Rats! So I lo...

Re: Reckon these iron tips will be any good?

Thanks... I'm not. its just a hobby. Next to get a flight instructor rating that i'll never use. That's a mad arse hobby! I grew up with the 150G and 172M. Dad was a dick. He would always cross his arms and say "I'm dead, you land" (he was very paranoid about that situation eventuating) and so I di...

Reckon these iron tips will be any good?

I bought these off eBay ages ago and they took so long to get here I'd forgotten I bought them. tips.jpg I haven't seen powder coated tips before, but it seems like a good idea... Keep the thermal energy where it's needed and avoid wetting areas where it's not needed/inconvenient to be wetted. I'll ...

Re: MC68(xx)030RP(xxx) variants? What to get, and what to avoid?

Is regards to fake chips, does anyone know if isopropyl alcohol removes the white print on genuine 68030RP33Bs? Other chips like ceramic 060s where most text is etched, the white print in top right corner seems resilient from what I've seen. Or perhaps the counterfeiters have started using alcohol ...
