Apologies to all i really should not have gone for bare boards. It was just because the order process was so frustrating.

Great, someone bought all the sockets...
In another thread someone mentioned that they were constructing PGA sockets out of female pin strip.
(I pretty sure the pitch on the socket is 2.54mm but you would need to verify will measure later)

Here is a supplier I use for 2.54mm pitch female pin strip, I am sure there will be plenty more

That's what I used for my recent 534 build as I couldn't find a socket and got impatient. Seems to work ok.

may i ask You what revision CF reader You using? Im asking, because i have weird results with V.H2 if i try to install MMULibs, Adapter behaves not as it should, instread of increasing ide speed it drops speed to 780kb/s.. Using same image on SD Card (and SD to IDE adapter) works great though..

CPLDs take 20 seconds. The caps take a few seconds each. I really hate the bare boards. I'm not listening to @8 Bit Dreams again :P.

Oh right, that's not so bad, I must have missed some posts. I thought you only had bare boards :)

I know where to buy 030 sockets, It needs to be 30 for the price to get 10% off
It's roughly £140 without customs charges. It's a 9-25 day delivery. I need 5 of them,
so if anyone else wants to get some drop me a pm.

TF536 is due here tomorrow. I have a Customs fee of £127 which is daylight robbery but there was no other option (so price may be £16 per board) :(
