  1. @Kr0tki called it - i knew the game but couldnt remember the name!
  2. haha - even more amusing when i saw your username 🙃
  3. much appreciated - ive gathered up the gerbers and a load of supporting info time to commission a build at JLCPCB!
  4. Many thanks, altho the cost is a little steep.. Ill search around to see if the gerbers and code for it are in the public domain
  5. I have an 800XLF and a 65XE and they both need a replacement Freddie chip. Number: C061922 or C061991 Does anyone know a good place to order them from in the UK / EU? cheers 😁
  6. try to keep the key level as you lift - i.e. un-tilted there is a bit of resistance (so they dont just fall off) but youll get the hang of it after 20 or 30 😁
  7. if you decide to make your own, make sure you have a magnifier!
  8. do you think costs were listed so high in order to reduce tax? i suppose the revenue authorities wouldve been clueless to challenge it.. RAM price was a massive factor, hence so many micro manufacturers offered a lower RAM version of their main computers - to cater for smaller budgets. Also why later revisions got more RAM (altho this is more apparent in the 16-bit age)
  9. i think i read somewhere that Jobs' said in an interview he should be hired because he has a friend that can program and design hardware..! (i.e. Wozniak) an interesting rationale
  10. if you want one, you have to get a PCB company to make the board for you, then solder in the components see here: https://github.com/kenames99/1090 JLCPCB will knock one up for just over 15 quid plus postage
  11. indeed - lets face it, the 1090 is hardly a low profile device..!
  12. is there any more info available on the Corina cart? gerbers, BOM etc.
  13. is it mono because it is in hires or because its ported from the apple version?
