  1. I have just about completed assembling my Pi Hat. Next will be acquiring or building some pods. Im looking mainly for the 6809, Z80 and 68000 units. If anyone happens to have purchased and not used any repro boards they want to get rid off, I would be interested. I have a couple of spare pcbs of the Pi Hat if anyone is interested.
  2. Its not going to be that critical. Any decent low esr 105c 16V cap will be fine. The Altronics Low Esr range of Lelon caps are ok for that sort of thing. They are probably going to be a little bigger, but not by all that much.
  3. Welcome to AA. 🙂
  4. Looks like a mod_evasive error. I have set the settings a bit higher now. Have to keep an eye on it as its not a one size fits all setting.
  5. Tonight the webserver has been updated to utilise HTTP/2 which is a bit faster and more efficient that the older HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1. You probably wont really notice any difference, but letting you all know its been enabled.
  6. Have you checked with Sydney Tools? According to their website, the service and repair most major brands.
  7. I think you will find most people are in the same position as you. Joey is simply the best at what he does. Joey and I are best mates, and I have been helping him out as much as can in recent months as my own business has been quiet, but the big issue is that many of these older boards from the 80's to the 90's are now 30+ years old and if you can find or have the parts to fix them, they can take days to repair. In the last few months, some of the boards which I have repaired have at times taken anything up to 3 days to diagnose and repair. So there comes a time when you have to draw a line and say its not worth it. Boards that are still working but have faults are typically not such an issue, but when they are completely dead, or stuck in reset etc they can be a nightmare to diagnose, even with all the right tools.
  8. A man gets on a bus, and ends up sitting next to a very attractive nun. Enamored with her, he asks if he can have sex with her. Naturally, she says no, and gets off the bus. The man goes to the bus driver and asks him if he knows of a way for him to have sex with the nun. "Well," says the bus driver, "every night at 8 o'clock, she goes to the cemetery to pray. If you dress up as God, I'm sure you could convince her to have sex with you." The man decides to try it, and dresses up in his best God costume. At eight, he sees the nun and appears before her. "Oh, God!" she exclaims. "Take me with you!" The man tells the nun that she must first have sex with him to prove her loyalty. The nun says yes, but tells him she prefers anal sex. Before you know it, they're getting down to it, having nasty, grunty, loud sex. After it's over, the man pulls off his God disguise. "Ha, ha!" he says, "I'm the man from the bus!" "Ha, ha!" says the nun, removing her costume, "I'm the bus driver!" On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they began to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed up, they asked him. St. Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,'" and he left. The couple sat and waited, and waited. Two months passed and the couple were still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if it didn't work out; could you get a divorce in heaven? After yet another month, St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "You can get married in Heaven." "Great!" said the couple, "But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple. "OH, COME ON!," St. Peter shouted, "It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer?"
  9. Not quite sure what this sign is alluding to.
  10. As this related to mains wiring it it legally required to be completed by a qualified person. If you are not suitably qualified then you should take it to someone that is.
  11. The blonde was having a house warming party and invited everyone over. After everyone had been there for a while, one of the guests asked, "What is it a two bedroom, one bathroom?" to which the blonde replied "No, its an entire house."
  12. An elderly couple is enjoying an anniversary dinner together in a small tavern. The husband leans over and asks his wife, “Do you remember the first time we had sex together over fifty years ago? We went behind this tavern where you leaned against the fence and I made love to you from behind?” “Yes,” she says, “I remember it well.” “OK,” he says, “How about taking a stroll ’round there again and we can do it for old time’s sake.” “Oooooooh Henry, you devil, that sounds like a good idea,” she answers. There’s a police officer sitting in the next booth listening to all this and having a chuckle to himself. He thinks, ‘I’ve got to see this…two old-timers having sex against a fence. I’ll just keep an eye on them so’s there’s no trouble.’ So he follows them. They walk haltingly along, leaning on each other for support, aided by walking sticks. Finally, they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence. The old lady lifts her skirt, takes her knickers down and the old man drops his trousers. She turns around and as she hangs on to the fence, the old man moves in. Suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that the watching policeman has ever seen. They are bucking and jumping like 18-year-olds. This goes on for about thirty minutes! She’s yelling, “Ohhhh, God!” He’s hanging on to her hips for dear life. This is the most athletic sex imaginable. Finally, they both collapse panting on the ground. The policeman is amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life that he didn’t know. He starts to think about his own aged parents and wonders whether they still have sex like this. After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggles to their feet and put their clothes back on. The policeman, still watching thinks, ‘That was truly amazing, he was going like a train. I’ve got to ask him what his secret is.’ As the couple pass, he says to them, “That was something else, you must have been shagging for about forty minutes. How do you manage it? You must have had a fantastic life together. Is there some sort of secret?” “No, there’s no secret,” the old man says, “except that fifty years ago that damn fence wasn’t electric.”
