Re: 520ST small model w/ no floppy / general advice

I'm confused by it claiming to have 4MB. I can only see 2.5MB. The MMU is of a model that supports different sized banks so I don't have an immediate opinion.

My precious.

From powering on to being up to temp about 2 seconds.

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...

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

I'm confused by the much higher aggregate CPU result (254%) for the 32MHz one compared to 38 or even 40MHz without waitstates.

Re: How to: recapping the Mega STe power supply

Just a warning to anyone using the Noctua fan! I used the 'silent' slowest fan speed option at first, my PSU blew up and almost destroyed my TT. 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 ...
