Re: Best place besides ebay to score replacement ICs?

Agreed on Best Electronics. I think they have them all. Bit pricey, but not a matter of choice is it? My Falcon has been absolutely hell for me... Unreliable POS and constantly crashing and failing on me. I gave it one last chance and I got his holyness the Czuba of France to give it one last look o...

Re: CuBase Score + FriendChip8 on TT

Oh heck no, this is a blast from the past. I did resolve the iossue... I honestly cannot remember what I did now, but it was sorted. I am just fine going between the Falcon ( CuBase Audio ) and the TT ( Score ) Its almost 10 years ago, so maybe it was something in the AUTO Folder, but whatever its d...

Re: Amstrad CPC 664

Yes the 664 was basically the 464 but with disk instead of tape. The 464 had red and green extra keys while the 664 had blue and the cursors were different shape, but other than that, they were the same machine, and yes the 6128 had a single whole keyboard while theothers had seperates cursors and n...

Re: Amstrad CPC 664

Ah, I loved the 664. Quite a rare model, the 6128 just seemed the better and more popular option, so I think in many ways the 664 just seemed to be in a no mans land really... The price was too much for just a disk when all the games in shops were tape. The 6128 was seemingly worth the extra because...

Syquest 270MB Drive - broken locking bit

I have one of these drives and it does work absolutely perfectly, however, I do have a problem with the locking mechanism. The little lever bit that locks the disk in place, wont lock it down. On the handle, was a small plastic bit, and this broke off some years ago, and so, what I did, was use a sm...

Are you saying you've got a 2U rack case specifically made for the ST (with all cutouts made for the connectors, floppy disk drive etc) or is this a standard 19" rack case with a blank (undrilled) front panel which you intend to recase your ST in? Its a 2U case that YES, has the holes ready fo...

This is just something that really hit me for 6 recently, but I am on the lookout for a case to home my falcon in. I am hoping to buy a Tower from one of the guys here, but what I do have, is a 2U Rackmount case. 2 pieces in 1mm steel. That I dont know why, but I have still got it in my shed. Now, i...

I have always liked minimal.

Microsoft did that purely because they wanted into the Tablet life style, but as an own...

Does this mice work on a computer with real USB? If they do, then your mouse adapter is broken, because these mice should definitely work with it.

Yes, agreed with the USB-PS/2 issue. When he told me, I knew that the thing was a ploy as you said, to put USB onto it instead of PS2.

There is a small adapter, that goes from the KEYBOARD-PINS on the Motherboard, to give me that same little keyboard port, that the Mega, an...
