Bit of stacking going on. I'm sure @Icky and @PaulJ would appreciate this.

I have visions of the ALPHA all over again @PhilC.

How many layers is that 3x. I can not remember the number of layers we got to on the ALPHA. :)

Only the three stacks though but still looks pretty impressive.

Fixed two data lines so far, wondering what else is broken next.

With everything going on I've neglected my retro gear but have had a couple of hours today.

My Mega 1 is having some love today.

So far it's had an Exxos 4mb upgrade and dual TOS board, followed by an S2 midi instrument and Exxos amp upgrade.

Next I think it'll get a TF536 if I get time today.

Turns out the S2 and amp are pretty easy to fit. I had to remove 3 caps from the motherboard and then connect up a few wires.

Haven't posted much on here lately, so I just thought I'd add a little photo of a project I've just completed for @philbo34 , assembling his H5 B1 board.

Compared to previous versions, this board was almost a pleasure to build and it booted up first time too.

I can't work out if I was simply bored or a little crazy.

Tried to load up the forum on my Logic analyzer :lol: I think I need a new browser but it did let me go here
