Update #53 Production Update #1

During the test run assembly, we ran into a couple of odd results: first, half of the units' RTCs (Real Time Clock) weren't ticking as they should (meaning not at all); and one had a row of keys not working.
Before we run for the hills in panic, this is what the test run was meant for: finding issues that can and should be fixed before full scale assembly.

The 28MHz mode is back, fully tested and compatible with the video modes and ULA.

But the hills are so nice this time of year!

Seriously though, if they're machine-assembling that just sounds like one or two bits were slightly misaligned.
