If I'm going to use my ultra satan and the 1772 buffer card I figure I will need 12 sockets to clear the ultra satan connector card. Where will it end! :) :) :)

Not much progress, as have been restricted from Atari over the weekend, but thought I would sneak this update in of the progress of the board based on a few other threads that were being worked on.

That looks too structured and neat for when we have finished. Wait till you see the IDE test board strapped to the STF Remake. Thinking I may have to build breadboard shelves :D

I would guess he did, but out of stock now. It was most likely the original booster for an old tube computer!!!

Its getting very tight in there. Video DAC board is intruding on the PSU mounts shifting it back a bit.

I think Exxos won't be happy until my PSU is standing at least a foot above the board.
