Im definitely interested. Both look to be German layout.

Not too bothered about looks, but as long as I can coerce one into some sort of working condition...job done.

So it seems, eh? ;)

You might sell a few bits after all.

I mean, youre going to be at the best place to sell retro computer stuff, if ever there was one.

Im clean broke, so I might try trading some bits and bobs.

@mrbombermillzy I'd check his mode of transport, if it turns out to be a dirty yellow Reliant Regal Supervan III then you'll know exactly what to do. Cushty.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Yeah.. not sure how many people are actually going, doesn't seem like many, so not hopeful of shifting some clutter.

I've got a similar Ladbroke 4M upgrade (shifter board but then soldered connections for the connection usually made from the MMU - that's been in my original 1040STF since the fitted it in the late 80s.

Last thing I bought from them was my Falcon...which must be getting on for 30 years ago now.

I tell you what, apparently there was a mythical (IIRC) German made 8mb STRAM upgrade board made for the STFM.

If you have one of those knocking around, bring it along and add it to the tab. :D

I think I saw the schematic for that but don't think anyone ever made it. Not sure if the schematic was complete though.

Easier just to get a 8mb altram card :lol:

But yeah if I find any mythical unicorns it's yours.
