Re: Update 39

This is good news :) Things might be taking a little longer than anticipated, but I am not at all worried for 2 reasons:- - We are still getting regular updates, and they are highly detailed and informative (and understandably a little apologetic) - The attention to detail and desire to get this ab...

Re: Organisation to get other FPGA core working...

I actually came up with it back in the tail end of the 14th Century. I was in the fields with John Lloyd discussing the benefits of his recently patented crop rotater and reaping the corn ready for harvest when I thought to myself ‘A Pi Zero, perfect for accelerating a Spectrum Next!’

Farewell to Ben Daglish...

A huge loss to the music world, Ben Daglish has sadly succumbed to cancer. My condolences go out to his friends and family at this tough time.

Two of my all time favourite game songs were written by Ben, Auf Weidersehen Monty and Thing Bounces Back.

Re: Selling my Spectrum hardware and software collection

Hey Paul. I see you don’t want to split but I would definitely take the Microdrives off your hands if you’re willing. Any more details on them please?

Re: Sad news regarding the Sinclair Vega Plus...

Key point there (I believe) is that JetSetWilly got their refund from their credit card company rather than from RCL. If you paid on credit card I suggest you try the same route. I wonder if Maria let him into the bedroom after getting that refund.... Nah, probably ended up head first down the toil...

Re: Sad news regarding the Sinclair Vega Plus...

RCL should be shut down and prosecuted. This 'product' is an utter disgrace! It's still bearing the Sinclair branding, which Sky have withdrawn the rights to, it's packaging is simply a smack in the face to all the backers and then the machine itself, where do you start? Paper inserts under the chea...

Re: Facebook public group

I setup a 'no information' with a 'single use' email address Facebook account and got blocked within 5 minutes. Apparently accounts with zero information look 'dodgy' and get blocked. So it's on with a life without social media for me!
