Re: ABUG SOUTH 1 to 3 June 2018 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

I'm sure I could be pursuaded to bring my drill and bits with me.....though having drilled the rivits out I'm not sure how to go about safely fixing the PSU shut again....luckily the //e has screws in it's PSU...... After drilling out the rivets you could use cold rivits to replace them. You need s...

Re: IDE podules - 8 and 16 bit versions

... I'll contact you over the next week or so, to organise payment and postage, just don't expect it happen quickly. Anyone who is going to the Abug in June who can wait, I'd appreciate not having to post (and it will be cheaper without P&P). I may make another batch, but I'm going to wait ...

Re: ABUG SOUTH 1 to 3 June 2018 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

Certainly my Apple //e has the Rifa caps, one of them is the same type as the Beeb ones, but the other is a much bigger value (and still needs changing). Would probably help to have some pictures of the machine in question. I'm sure I could be pursuaded to bring my drill and bits with me.....though ...

Re: ABUG SOUTH 1 to 3 June 2018 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

Most of the Apple II's, in particular, the Apple II Europlus (which is what I suspect your friend had) had Astec PSUs that were very similar to those in Beebs and have very similar RIFA paper capacitors. I do have some books on the Apple II that may cover this in a bit more detail. The main problem ...

I know this a bit off topic, but I just wanted to put out a request for some help during the meet. One of my best friends passed away just over a year ago from a brain tumour. We'd worked together at Sun for many years, and I regularly stayed with him and his family when I was working out of the Cam...

Re: ABUG SOUTH 1 to 3 June 2018 (near Camberley)

I confess, I made the magic smoke, well my beeb from BITD. The caps came from Mapling a couple of years ago and looked the business, but I guess they might have been really old stock, or maybe they were saving a bit of money and buying cheap knock-offs. This is the machine that I use for testing, so...

Unless people want to go climbing, I see there are a couple of nearby climbing walls. (I hold an MTA CWA).

I've done it. I can't find much info on it other than this thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11727

I've not powered my master up since the Sunday morning of the Manchester ABUG so I'll dig it out today and see if it's kept its settings.
