@Icky no, in this case I was just being lazy. I'll warn you whenever I'm trying to trigger your OCD but as for that photo its a #noOCDzone :P :lol:

Got the first of the two IDE boards finished, will give it a test shortly.

Fairly easy to build but those nine 68R resistors were a pain.

@PhilC Nice, still waiting for bits to finish mine. 68Rs arrived today, but waiting for the 88 pin PLCC and LS245s. Already have ROMs ready to go thankfully seing as getting 27C4096s was a bit of a trial recently.

@rubber_jonnie I ordered all of my parts from Farnell, which thanks to the virus came a week later.

I went for 3m sockets this time which do fit really well.

I already have about 20 27c4096 aprons, so good to go later on.

@PhilC , at one point I saw a number of jumpers required by this board under the CPLD. Would you have a reference for these since you finished. Thanks!!

Nothing yet @PaulJ , maybe @exxos or @Icky can point us both in the right direction.

I was going to check out the build topic and replicate what I saw there.
