Indeed I am, as I also have to replace the derailleurs & chain on my bike!!

I really need to get back to the MSX Mapper/Megaram and CoCoSDC and see if I can actually do some good stuff with them. Of all the SD solutions I have, they are the most awkward to use.

And I need to pull out my STEs and see if they have the snap, crackle and pop issue.

In an effort to give myself more to do (Like I needed to), I've just got myself an OSI Superboard 600 Rev D via a chap over at Stardot.

It's interesting that it's been manufactured without a solder resist layer. That's very late 1970s that is.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

Given it's a repro board, clearly the whole plan was to make it look as original as possible.

The lack of solder resist was about the first thing that caught my eye too.
