ZX Spectrum +2a, non working but I have a project for the case.....

+2a now working, just had a duff ramchip.....yeah I know I'm using the case for a project, but I don't like having non-working equipment if I can avoid it....

Just bought one of SirMorris' ZXPAND interfaces + some ZX81 / QL membrains.

Cheers.

Phill.

I think I got a bargain from the house clearance today...

Amiga 1000 + keyboard. But no keyboard lead but its only a 4 pin RJ11. Dont know if it works.

Also has a RAM expansion on the front. Also looks like there is some kind of daughterboard inside. Will fully disassemble when I get home tonight.

Sadly, its 110v NTSC and I think my 240v -> 110v adapter wont have enough oomph to run it.

£10  ;D So, its a bargain!

Got Lord Morris's expander last week, and the smile hasn't left My ugly face since :D
Will see if it will run along side my Memotech Z80 assembler pack, if so dump its EPROM contents to the expander then save as p file,for example emulator use, end result an assembler that can be loaded anywhere into ram as the z80 assy's routines are all relocatable.
I used this method to load the EPROM into a battery backed memory board thus creating another hardware assembler which now I come to think about it, Has just been made obsolete along with an EPROM board.... HANG ON!  thanks to this bloody thing some of My add-ons are now up crap creek :'(

CHARLIE YOU OWE ME MONEY I HAVE A BIG DOG AND I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE >:( >:( >:(

Not quite a purchase, more of a 'free, take them!' which was on the pile of stuff @ the AC2011.

Complete set of manuals for an Atari SML804 laser printer picked up for someone within RCM who I happen to know owns one of these big beasts!
