Re: I have no idea what this PCB is ?

Its a Katy 68 http://www.bigmessowires.com/2014/11/28/68-katy-schematics-and-parts-list Looks interesting... especially the uclinux build for it. I wonder if it was ever ported to the ST or Amiga?

Re: I have just joined the Spectrum computing forum

Got to say that I followed your guide for both approaches as I had the USB to serial lead handy & the USB A to A lead was in transit...both were really useful & easy to follow.

I recently (3 weeks ago) picked up a second HP1661CS Scope for $50 + shipping (which was $70). I cant recommend them enough
I used to use the HP1662 some 20+years ago... absolutely fantastic. I think you got a bargain there. :-D :-D

Re: REV H1 information and interest

I'd be very interested in one as well...but I'm not sure my soldering skills are up to the job just yet. :roll:

Put me down for one to support the development and I'll hope to either improve my technique or find someone to help sort it. ;)

Re: Hello from the Netherlands

:welcomewave: Interesting experience with the SM124 - I've had two do basically the same thing now (power up fine one day but then fail a day or two later). Strangely, my SM125s (even the one I got with my 1040 STF back in 1987) are all fine & the System Solutions mono screen has also (so far) been ...

Absolutely! A colleague is trying to resurrect an early version of Unix to run on a PDP 11. The source doesn't quite match the working binaries so he's trying to reverse engineer it. :?

Re: I doubt anyone's interested, but...

I think that's great news - I'm trying to resurrect my Falcon at the moment but if I get chance I will try & download it to run on my Mega 4 + Megafile 60...

Glad to hear your Atari's are back in operation again. :D

Re: FMNs blog / the latest things hes briken(fixed)

Will do. Keyboard is missing a couple of keys...but I managed to buy a reconditioned mega st keyboard a few months ago. :D
Hoping most of the rest of the kit is fully functional.
Might get started testing it all later tonight when the kids are in bed (and my wife as well).

Re: FMNs blog / the latest things hes briken(fixed)

Looking good. Just picked up a Mega ST4 with SM124 and a Megafile (plus some music software and Midex+) so once I've seen how much work it needs I might try and follow your lead as funds allow.
