9.5 hours running with the Atmel GAL :thumbup:

Now to test some more out... obviously its not really viable to test each GAL for literally all day, but as they seem good so far, will have to limit to a couple of hours each test..

Though each final booster will be tested all day anyway... might take a while...

Need to look at my monitor today, needs a re-cap somewhere I think as its acting poorly :(

Cool, well done.

And don't you think it's time to buy a monitor of a more manly shade of pink :D :shock: :P
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Great, looking forward to it!

That table looks suspicuously (this is probably a Dutchism) like the famous IKEA model. I've got two bolted together on top of each other, using it as a stand for my laster printer :)

Though having Atari hw sitting on it is ALWAYS better :lol:

The ones on top of the floppy drive are tested working.. the ones on the keyboard are the likely iffy chips..

It almost sounds as if the two of you could swap appartments and have most of your stuff back :D

As vice president of the organization to preserve useless knowledge I cannot resist to add:

Did you know, that the IKEA Lack is almost perfectly 19" and can therefore be used as a network rack?

I'm not going to spend anymore time of these for the foreseeable future.

Time to move onto the V2.2 Booster boards now.
