    Two days ago the board arrived as expected and, when I had some time just before lunch I made some tests.

    First I checked (again) if there was no…

    Greetings,

    The board is in transit and may arrive as soon as tomorrow. Meanwhile I have checked again the SKS schematics. From the description and pictures, and if there isn't another problem with power supply (such as failing -12V on Shiri 's side or…

    It's been some time. Last week the VTACs arrived and the one in the card was replaced by one of the Polish units. The image was stable, cursor moved but there was no character at all! The invert signal was also activated, so the screen was…

    Greetings,

    I have some new things and others that aren't that fresh but also worthy to report.



    With this I regain the ability to repair hardware!



    I found one of the rare tax-evading Amstrad computer!



    I found many interesting things in dump piles near my…

    Greetings,

    A few months ago I was delighted when I learned the Deutsch word "Hamsterkauf".:hamster:
    It is my turn to expose a word from the country where I was born: "Estraperlo".
    ::money::
