Re: MEGA ST upgrading TOS

Hi Phil, Yes that's one option I'm considering, funds being the biggest issue preventing me this month. :cry: If the 2 chip UK TOS 1.04 were in stock then that would be the simplest way to go, but alas there are none ATM. :cry: 68k isn't socketed sadly and I'm not yet confident enough to risk adding...

I've programmed other Flash memories using this AMD-type programming pattern (Transputers, SHARC DSPs, ColfdFire v2 & various ARM cores) so if I can help, give me a shout! My GEM programming is very rusty though (not done an...

Re: SMT MMU & GLUE dilemma

For me it's more important for the development to continue as fast as you're happy to push on with it, so if the 'Mongrel' is quicker to produce with SMT rather than PLCC parts (or that's how you want to spend your time), then that counts for a lot. I'm really excited about the prospects of the deve...

Re: 1772 floppy chips appearing in stock.

Sounds like you have that requirement covered then. :D

Ours has taken to sitting in the cupboard where the breakfast cereals are kept and miaowing loudly when we open the door for breakfast. :shock:

Maybe he's guarding it from the kids, the other two cats & our Malamute...who knows? :lol:

Re: 1772 floppy chips appearing in stock.

I have a Siamese who can randomly press keys and knock a mouse about if that would help?

He's also very good at guarding any open boxes you may have!

Re: ST-IDE-ROM Dev Board v1 - BETA Testers

No point in me even getting excited about them...far too much month left at the end of the money.. :hide:

Re: ST-IDE-ROM Dev Board v1 - BETA Testers

Can't wait to try it out...just a bad month (car insurance due, daughter's ballet & dance class fees to pay etc.) so sacrifices have to be made...and I'm not wanting to be volunteered as a human sacrifice. :roll:
