If you think your job is pointless, remember, there's someone in Germany who fits indicators to BMWs.

Beautiful! I'd like to hang one on my wall :-D

I think not really to make the assembly this board, because of very rare original parts, such as the special serial, power, net connectors.
Well, serial on German PCs is standard DB9 and net connectors are basically standard 3,5mm jacks, just the power connector is really special.

Cheers, Marcel

PCs? I hope the many years of emulation did not make your subconsciousness exchange them with QLs :P

Just PCBs or have you ever used the assembly service, too?

For historical preservation.


Hi, great work, did you also think of making Issue 5 PCBs?
I own ISS6 QL, but I have always wondered which ISS is valued more?

In the film making industry, sequals are rarely found as good to the original story. In u-electronics might be different. ISS6 was meant as the next best thing consolidating all improvements, but I think there were some reworks and other later revisions?

Cheers
Tomas
