Maybe you get blisters from pulling someone's leg too hard?
Yes, that one way.. Another way as Jon Whiteside can attest to is picking up the business end of a soldering iron. :stars: :stars: :stars:

Ouch - Thats not good, you can only imagine the pain.

In all the time I was building the STF the only time I burnt my finger was trying to install the Floppy Un-f*ck board.

Ya, its a mine field!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Icky I got the Eiffel running with the board. It works well. Pins are one to one except tx and rec need to be reversed.

So I finally have a Blitter on its way from Best. Unfortunately seems like its the only place that stocks them.

Cant wait to Blitter this STF up.

Been holding off on the Video Brightness Fix viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1185&start=80#p12063 as I had modified the SCART cable by reducing the RGB resistors. Will put them back to their original values and do the fix.

Also the donor ST's keyboard is not working - hasn't been since I got it. Have been using my STE's keyboard and now need to put it back to into the STE to put it back to normal. Seems like there is a short going on in the keyboard when plugging it in the board does not boot.

So two Atari jobs for this weekend to clean up after the mad dash to build the STF

Good luck with the keyboard, I'm hoping to get your spacers printed and then see if I can fix the STF, whilst trying to get my PAK to work.
