Could someone elaborate on what the alpha board is? I'm assuming it's some kind of prototype ST clone? What does it do over a standard ST/STE (if anything)?

I can send you money for one Alpha board as sponsor. I dont want an Alpha board (dont have time, tools or skills to handle that...). You can keep it.
If needed I can buy two :)

So we got the minimum 10 orders now :cheer: :cheer:

PCB guy spotted a couple small errors in the board, so will fix those in a few days... I put in a 8 core CPU in my PC yesterday as routing the board is taking hours! Hopefully it will speed it up a bit..
