If people want to tell me what to do i'm fine with that... it costs £50 an hour. Then i'll do what you say. Otherwise i'll do what i like when its my buck. Whether its good or bad.
Now we're talking! Let's have a whip-round and get this TF536 across the line !!!

My confidence in the rock solid base design of the TF330 predicts ten hours of dedicated debugging will flush out those nagging issues + another £100 on top to get AlenPPCs full Amiga test setup shipped from Canada to Scotland.

£50 pledge, you get to choose the value of a decoupling capacitor.
£100 pledge gets your name on the silk screen ( 8 character limit, sorry Arkadiusz ! )
£200 pledge, you get to choose the colour of the first batch of PCBs.
£500 pledge, A special edition board named in your honour and in the colour of your choice.

Please note: This post is in no way, endorsed, approved or likely to be in any way acceptable to TerribleFire. It is intended to provide some humorous light relief following the sad demise of the TF536 :cry:

10 hours to debug a 060 board ? What about respin of boards time and cost as well. It be more like a 6 month full time job. The 060 is nothing like a 030 cpu either.

Mhm. People sitting and waiting for the Amiga to make a comeback. As if. Makes me mad 😄
I know, this baffles me. There is a fine and healthy successor to the Amiga that sells well and performs well, that has been available for decades.
It's called the PC and can even run your Amiga software for you if you want it to, easier than it can play early PC software (I tried installing quake from original cd recently :/ )

I've been into retro games for a long time and really support the cause, but the Amiga community has more than its fair share of fruitbats that use them as daily drivers and will steadfastly claim them to be the future of computing and the best machines ever made. These are the guys that sadly cause the most problems in the scene, the space cadets.

People should admit that Amiga is hobby, not a every day computer. People should be happy what they have got and not to have unrealistic expectations. At least unrealistic expectations should not turn in action, like driving to Stephens house. :D

I'm not innocent either, I have asked Stephen to support CDTV, but for my defense, I'm prety sure that if Stephen doesn't fix issues, nobody does. There is too few CDTVs around it to be interesting and fixing requires much knowledge and skills.
