Re: Mongrel edition motherboard thoughts

Likewise, I need to practise my soldering before I risk this sort of project but I would definitely support the next iteration of board (STF remake or Mongrel - or both!). Better start saving up for it now... On a vaguely related point, I'm building up an FPGA-based retro computer (6502/6809/Z80) wh...

Re: PaulJ Progress

Yeah Rackmount would work very well. I've thought about making a separate case for the keyboard etc, does anyone know if a Mega keyboard is pin compatible with the normal STF ones? got lots of plugs to make more leads. The falcon I have here has a hacked on connector which looks like the MEGA one. ...

Re: Packing fail...

Our two Siamese are similarly 'helpful' and make the Persian seem sane, calm & relaxed by comparison.
Of course, our Alaskan Malamute trumps anything that the cats can do when she's in a cheeky mood.

Almost every box has at least one cat in it when we open it right up until we get rid...

Re: General for sale section ?

Definitely a good idea...I have lots of PC stuff to fund some more Atari kits/upgrades!

My Falcon eventually needs recapping and an RTC replacement, not to mention an accelerator & I have a few STs that need fixing...

Re: Going Gotek - FlashFloppy How To

Cool!

I'll have to order up some of the other extras for the Gotek to really let the bird fly.

Thanks once again.

Thanks again for the info!

Re: Going Gotek - FlashFloppy How To

I've just followed the guide on how to upgrade a Gotek using the USB A to A method - really clear & easy to follow! Much simpler than the serial upgrade method I used to put the HxC firmware into another Gotek a year or two ago. Many thanks for the excellent tutorial. Looking forward to putting it i...

Hi,

Are either/both of the monitors still available? If so I'd be interested in finding out a bit more...
