Re: Pluggy Reloaded

There's a lot to take in in this thread, but one question I immediately have. Are any of these still available, by any chance?

Re: My Gigatron Build

I checked out some of your blog article's, clear, concise, well laid out and easy to read. I am now even more jelly knowing that you received the last ever official Gigatron kit. Thanks!

Re: PucMon

Interesting thread - not only a fantastic looking game, but a ROM upgrade. Hopefully something that might help pathe my way through a similar process... sometime in the not too distant future (I hope). Great work everyone!

Re: My Gigatron Build

Thanks! And also thanks for all the info. Hopefully I'll get a PS2 keyboard tomorrow - the USB adapter I got predictably failed to work, so hopefully I'll be able to do at least a "Hello World" this weekend. May take me quite some time, but I would really like to update the ROM, and try out some of ...

Re: gtBASIC

There is some truly impressive work (going on) here, and it's a fascinating read (although I'll need to study hard to understand it all)

Guess I'll need to upgrade the RAM at some point... and definitely I'm going to have to work on getting a loader working.

Re: My Gigatron Build

Thanks! That's my heavily modded Amiga 1200. Custom case and keys (from a1200.net), Gotek floppy emulated (also hacked to add a rotary encoder, lcd display and piezzo speaker to simulate the drive sounds), and an 8MB expansion. I also took a huge gamble when I recapped it myself... I had soldered pr...

Re: My Gigatron Build

Wow, before I started, I thought the options would have been quite limited, but looks like there are some pretty awesome options. Thanks so much for the detailed responses. Stupidly I thought I had a spare VGA cable, but looks like I'll need to wait until tomorrow for a new one to be delivered, and ...
