While I'm here Exxos I just wanted to thank you again for the eagle tutorials. They really helped bootstrap into using eagle. Should be getting my first board made soon. Thanks again. :D :D

Not to change the subject but do you still have any plans for the rev H Exxos atari board which you ask for interested parties in dec/jan. It was a respin of the current board with fixes, connector alignment, and some minor upgrades before you moved on to the new major upgrade board.. just querious. :) :) :)
Basically just haven't got time to work on it at the moment.. Trying to catch up on a million other projects first like the SEC booster etc, but I haven't had time to even work on that the past couple of weeks, and yet I'm spending all day every day at the moment doing Atari projects.. I pretty much got like two years behind with everything because I got flooded with motherboard repairs etc So trying to catch up with everything now.. At the moment I am trying to get stocks back up in my store as I won't have time later in the year due to work..

And now it begins. Soldering past midnight is not advisable.

Just consider it practice for the rev G board none of us are getting any sleep that week.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Need to get caffeine in for that week. Just checked what I soldered last night and I missed a few pins :oops:

Welcome to my world. Sometimes it should be more Forgottentosolderit rather than forgottenmyname.

Well that's the board soldered. Of course will need to look for bad solder joints as am bound to have some. I also seem to have an obsession with turned Dil sockets. I prefer them to the standard ones.

Have spotted a few tweaks for the next board after we get this one up and running.

Now onto the firmware.
