Monday, April 27, 2009, 09:43 AMI'm almost finished with details about production of three well-known interfaces: the DivIDE, the K-Mouse (or Kempston Mouse Turbo) and the PC Keyboard Interface.
There is one main aspect I have to check out: Velesoft created a new version of the K-Mouse interface, and I need to check if all sources of that interface are available.
If so, I may produce that new version instead of the older one (the previous batch I produced was also the older 2006 version).
Also I have no idea if something about the functionallity really changed with the new K-Mouse 2008 version compared to the older one.
If anyone knows a reason why I must create the new version, please let me know.
Anyway, prices come at 35 euro for DivIDE and K-Mouse, and 30 for the PC Keyboard Interface.
Postage will be 10 euro for Europe and 15 for the rest of the world.
Sunday, April 19, 2009, 08:30 AMHey, I found this keyboard at my daddy's room!
Hmmm, these function keys are very hard to press...
And what is that strange transparent room? Is it a USB hub?
Can this keyboard take some pressure?
I wonder if the keys can come off..
Thursday, April 16, 2009, 05:59 PMI received an email from someone who told me there is still interest in the K-Mouse (Kempston Mouse Turbo) interface.
I also read about this demand on WoS, and there also seems to be interest for DivIDE.
I also have lot's of parts for some more PC Keyboard Interfaces.
I'm willing to spend some time in creating some K-Mouse interfaces, DivIDE's and PC Keyboard interface's.
Please fill in the contact form or reply to this topic if you are interested!

Well, not any piece of Commodore equipment is going to enter my front door, but last saturday at the Bonami retro gamecomputer fair I talk to some dude who invited me for another yearly show with many retro-systems.
He's an organizer of the Commodore user community, so if I'm going to visit that event, I am sort of joining Commodore, you see...
Well, Bonami was lot's of fun last saturday.
Anyone who likes any kind of retro computer should have been there, although most people having rent some tables were just selling cartridges (Nintendo, Sega, you know).
But the special aspect of this day was that many consoles and computers were playable, even my beloved transperent Spectrum-in-a-plexiglass-case with Kempston Mouse Turbo, PC Keyboard interface and DivIDE.
Here are some pictures:
Here's my table with left a small TV with Spectrum +2, MB02 and KMT attached, running some demos.
In the middle my laptop (well, my boss's) showing some video's and emulators.
And of course the transparent case at the right with 20" TFT ;)
I'm not on any picture :(
Friday, April 3, 2009, 04:21 PMSo, tonight I'm packing my bags, or flightcases to be precise, to take of early in the morning to Harderwijk here in Holland, where the Bonami Retro-gamecomputer fair will be held.
I'm told there are 95 tables where lot's of different brands will be represented.
Of course I will tell everyone the ZX Spectrum is the best computer in the world!
I've created some flyers with info about the MB02, PCKI and KMT, and links to Raww.org, WoS and Pouet.net.
Anyone else want to be listed there?
My camera will accompany me, so tomorrow you will see if the fair was more than a nerd-only place to be ;)
