@exxos I feel the same...I never got the IDE to work on the board (needs a firmware update apparently) and ran out of time/patience to get alt ram working on just a floppy.

Still hoping to sort it once time allows...but as for many of us, time is limited.

Great potential in there though!

New toy... Some quick images... Actually surprised how good the zoom and quality of the screen is!

Only 13 left in stock of the Falcon RAM boards.. Though my new "system" of pre-empting stock running out is starting to pay off, as I picked up some more boards from being assembled last night.. so by the time I have cleaned and tested, new stock should be ready...

Today's chaos, finishing off diagnostic carts as only 2 left in stock. Price has jumped up £3 because of increased ROM prices as mentioned HERE

I'd love to get one without the ROM...or ultimately make time to build my own so it can have custom images on board (some diag, others general utilities)... I even have a few true EPROM parts lined up for it.... :D

If you do a order to my store at some point I can send a blank PCB. I have one left of the previous revision I won't use now anyway.

Very kind of you...am trying to finalise the list of components for H4 #2 & H5 #1 so I will be ordering some bits very soon (just been paid as well!).
