Nostalgia in it's best way!

I was able to harvest these wonderful items from my attic and some recent boughts:

So this is how Clive ment computing!
Nice and fun, but I'm happy I also joined the modern pc community ;)

(unfortunately not all components are working; the interface one and two however, including the Cookie rom, do!!")

Nice new lcd display for ZX Spectrum 
Thursday, April 15, 2010, 06:44 PM
I found a nice lcd display on eBay, with 2 composite video inputs, and a 12V power connector.
No remote, no buttons, simply give it 12V, and feed a video signal:

It's only 3.5" in diagonal, but the resolution is 640x480, and the colors are very good!
And the best thing: it only costs less then 21 euro!

Here's a YouTube video I made, where I put the lcd in the place of the +2B's cassette recorder:

Search for: "3.5" TFT Color LCD Car Reverse Monitor Aluminum panel" on eBay (worldwide, because it's sold from Hong Kong).

'Accidentically' flashed ESXDOS and wanna get back to FATWare? 
Sunday, April 4, 2010, 06:12 PM
Someone flashed his DivIDE to ESXDOS, and asked me how to get back to FATWare.
So I got my ESXDOS rom from the shelve, swapped it with my +DivIDE rom, and checked it out.

It's not that hard:
1. Get the FATWare flasher from somewhere
2. Put it on your (FAT formatted) CF card
3. Start ESXDOS with that CF card
5. Use: LOAD ""

This will load the flasher program, so you can flash FATWare again.

~ = extended mode symbol shift A.
Your filename of the flasher may be different when you use another flasher .TAP file (e.g. the 128K versions from Velesoft).
