Re: Schon keyboard

You don't have to worry about the replacement 8049 - just fit a Hermes :D

Re: Cant load Archive from floppy

It sounds as though you might have got a bit of dirt or dust on the floppy disk and it corrupted one or two sectors on the disk.

You may need to reformat the floppy disk
