A Whole Lotta Nothing

I’m not dead. Honest! It has, however, been a long time between posts. Unfortunately I haven’t been working on project work as much as I would have liked, and I spent a long time waiting for parts to arrive for projects. CreatiVision Controllers (AKA the Dick Smith Wizzard) The new PCBs arrived. It took meContinue reading “A Whole Lotta Nothing”

While none of this equipment is in what I would call a “working state”, it’s all fixable and it’s all super interesting. First upContinue reading “The Big Haul”

Update on all the PCBs

So remember all those PCBs I ordered? Let’s break down what worked and what didn’t. What Worked So first up, both my ROM adapters worked without a problem. So we now have a Low Profile Amiga ROM switcher and a Low Profile Microbee ROM switcher. Both built around using turned pins to keep the profileContinue reading “Update on all the PCBs”
