So, currently printing :)
:bravo:
Not impressed, the print job stopped about 2 hours in for some reason. At first I thought my print server had rebooted, but no. No logs as to why it stopped either. Need to print it again now :(

Re: REV H1 information and interest

I just need to know who wants a motherboard or who wants to just contribute to the buying of them. Boards I don't have a price on yet but they will be around £40 each. The cost depends on how many people want one and what size the board is.. Both of which are somewhat unknown at the moment. Ok, if ...

Re: exxos blog - random goings on

I have a Meanwell replacement PSU that I need a lead for, so the length isn't that important to me. I will look out for them in the shop :)

The parts I ordered from your store yesterday arrived at lunchtime today, that's good service :)

It is an interesting idea, similar to what Sega did with the Megadrive I believe. It has a 68000 and a Z80 inside.
Cool! did not know that!

Re: CPU Strangeness

I've kind of decided I will slot the CPU into a spare socket and solder the CPU to the socket so I can get the benefit of turned pin to turned pin plus solder. Then it's more like the PAK, which still works. Will it work, I don't know, but the CPU is just so loose in the socket, it's got to be a con...

Re: CPU Strangeness

Spray the CPU and socket with contact cleaner, also resolder the CPU socket.. Will clean the contacts, but given the PAK works, I suspect the soldering is ok. I will do that as a last resort. TBH, I think it is poor contact in the turned pin socket I'm using, as the CPU can almost be pulled out by ...
