Re: Floppy Support

(I'll repeat that printing with PLA has much less issues than ABS in general. Use ABS where heat resistance is important)

Re: Logic Analyser on the Cheap

It's a little more than 10GBP, but I'm very happy with my DSLogic USB LA.

Re: 1040 STF shifted video

Interesting. It's caused by a timing difference between MMU and Shifter - not really anything broken in it. What chip id is it on that Shifter?

Re: Icky - Progress

In the USA ordering from Best is really quick... two days.. sometimes three. They really have quick shipping! Yeah I'm going to start just ordering stuff to our US office and pick it up whenever I'm over. I was just looking through a few things at Best and they're not _that_ expensive. At least not...

Since I got my PSU fixed I've stuck the Noctua on the highest setting, as the guy who fixed my PSU told me it overheated. Thanks. I'm indeed running mine ...

Re: How to: recapping the Mega STe power supply

Exactly - it's not -12 and +12 as the new diagrams show.

It does mean that everyone might be running these fans "backwards". I need to look at how I connected mine.

Re: Troed - progress

Troed have you checked what state the processor is in.. is it halted.. held in reset etc. Used dragROM, or the atari drag cart to see if rs232 communications is possible? Checked all the clocks? just looking for some indication of non functional electronics.. What is it drawing for current. With no...
