Unfortunately my Christmas plans to get things going have crashed and burned! Thankfully not literally burned (No magic smoke thankfully), just figuratively.

We were supposed to have a tradesman round to tile our downstrairs bathroom, kitchen and the little hall that joins the two. He just didn't turn up, no phone call or message, nothing, just didn't arrive.

Since it was the 2nd person to let us down (The first at least told us he wasn't going to be able to do it), we decided I'd just do it myself. It's coming along nicely, and I hope to have it done by Saturday, but it just hasn't left me time to get the STF remake patched. I also got a bit distracted with a broken ST, which I have managed to resurrect and is now rocking 4MB ram in a SIMM upgrade, Just needs TOS 1.04 burning onto ROM and it's rocking. Oh, and a decent PSU....

Might get some time on it Sunday/Monday though, and it is tantalisingly close to power up!

I know, but I've been trying to get that magic smoke from tiles with my angle grinder :D
