Re: LOLPRICE

Looks to me like it's only got a cassette connector on the back... The rest aren't even poked through by the looks of it...

Re: The Acorn C5?

It does look like an egg having a poo... Anyway!

If you like the phone you could, of course, just buy it off aliexpress.

Re: The Acorn C5?

I can't say that the Acorn name is about to get me to take a punt on an indigogo campaign for a rebranded $140 smartphone... https://www.engadget.com/2018/02/23/acorn-brand-revived-to-sell-phones/ I'm guessing it didn't get any VCs to take a punt either... Although I could, of course, be completely ...

Re: B+64K - 12k sideways ram working

MultiOS can be reprogrammed happily (it's just an eeprom) - I've ditched viewsheet for anfs, put vanilla adfs back on it and it's already y2k patched... Myelin has developed a in-machine reprogrammable mega rom, I have yet to build/test that but it's moving up my list! As soon as you have a HDD solu...

Re: Can I use this to hook my Amiga to the CUB?

Sorry, that probably sounded dim :D -> what I was driving at is why did they bother fixing it to digital RGB if it'll work fine in analogue mode, and be more generally compatible ;)

I can safely say it fits without getting in the way of anything in mine, which has MultiOS, Econet and 80186 inside it...
