Re: The Spectrum Show 89 Live

Thanks Paul. :)

News has reached the 1990s and is getting a bit thin on the ground. Will there be enough to sustain the show until the 100th episode, we wonder... :?:

This 3D printing business is scary stuff! :shock:

I can see in a decade or two's time you'll be able to print your own 3D printer ;) / C5 ( :D ) / or perhaps a new Speccy :D
Not quite yet, but it's getting there:

Re: Black squares...

BTW is there a command to make the keyboard window in Fuse get bigger somehow? I have to use a magnifying glass to read it. The Fuse keyboard graphic was replaced by a much better one back in December. Unfortunately development of Fuse has rather stalled and they've not released a new version since...

I seem to recall someone else started poking at pins with the machine powered up a few month...

Re: Mr Do coming soon to Spectrum

I had no idea what anyone was talking about. Mr Do? Never heard of him! Then I gave it a try - it's Digger ! Why did no one say so?!

Distribution of PASMO without source is technically also illegal, since it's released under GPL.

I watched 55 and 56 last night. Still some way to go before I've caught up with your current output.
