Nothing as exciting as the Gigatron, but I decided it was time to speed up my 1541...

All the things!!!


I bought a second USB evaluation board, because using a single board for testing and dev was getting messy - especially trying to test fresh burns then forgetting what version I was using. Also three 2560 'duinos.

Everything else is from a care package I got from Arrow this morning after winning a little competition they ran. They sent me a bunch of sensors, displays, contactless RFID system bits, some baby 'duinos and other odds and ends. Only about 1/3rd of it was in the photo, but it was the fun 1/3rd. Extra bonus, they sent me another 2560 and two 328 'duinos.

No :(
Got to get a grip on the garden and other outdoor jobs while the weather is good...

Got the solar system on the shed partly functional, and the 12V lights in the shed and the 'sun house' next to the shed installed, connected up and working. Tested them last night. Nice and bright. Still need to connect up the rest of the batteries.

When not outside, I'm reverse engineering a 64k RAM pack for the ZX81. Want to get that done so it can be onward posted abroad ASAP.

Hopefully I'll have time to try the Q68 later this week.

Today I received: someone else's PCBs from Seeed.

Thank you Seeed for being honest that you had a problem and many of your shipments that day were labeled off by one. Where are my PCBs?
