  • I would compare specs from the manufactures website. If the specs match, then I would buy. But the old modules were matched pairs, then the new should also be matched pairs.

  • Since my board is pretty old now (4 years), the ASUS QVL really only shows discontinued products.

    Would this be compatible?

    Corsair is normally compatible with a lot so I dont think it matters too much, but normally I like to get what's on the QVL list ;)

  • Ordered another Competition Pro Joystick. So 1 for the C64 and 1 for the Speccy. A Megadrive Gamepad for the Spectrum Next.

  • A4 is too large, A5 is a better size to pick up and refer to.

  • Amiga one had a superb large a4 ring bound manual

  • Steve Elliott:
  • Yes, it's got a fantastic reputation for speed.  I had an Atari ST but I never had GFA BASIC, a mate did (but eBay lol).  I had Fast BASIC, Hisoft BASIC and STOS.  For those wondering, the manual had RED paper and black ink!

  • iWasAdam:
  • Gfa basic and compiler - the fastest thing for the Amiga back in the day
  • September 10, 2021, 20:18:01
  • Steve Elliott:
  • GFA BASIC, what were they thinking with the manual :O I know they were trying to prevent piracy, but when the customers who buy the thing suffer too, bad move.

  • Hey @Dawline - whats the file integrity check for?
  • September 10, 2021, 11:23:37
  • dawlane:
  • @therevills - Once you have the memory replaced, you should read up on and do a file integrity check.
  • September 08, 2021, 12:10:05
  • therevills:
  • @Dawlane - you were right, I had a faulty memory module... first one in all the time I've built my own PCs :(

  • Steve Elliott:
  • Yeah pointers are great, but you can get some spectactular crashes if there's a bug lol.  Seems to be working ok now though.

  • Kryzon:
  • The two bad things that can happen with raw points: point to an address of a deleted object (segfault), or points to null but the object wasn't deleted properly (leak).
  • September 08, 2021, 06:43:54
  • Kryzon:
  • @Steve pointers are a really cool and useful feature, but you gotta be careful if it's a raw pointer (can eventually point to a deleted object/null value, which can happen when the pointer is shared and you don't know if someone deleted what it points to), or if it's a "smart pointer" that cleans up after itself.

  • Steve Elliott:
  • Fighting with pointers.  I  *think* I've won, but they always seem to have a sneaky attack just as you're walking away ;)

  • dawlane:
  • I'd run a few memory and SSD tests to make sure it's not hardware first. I've not seen any issues on mine.

  • Running 20H2.

  • Which Windows 10 build is affected?
  • September 07, 2021, 11:56:54
  • MikeHart:
  • Sometimes, I thought it was just a hickup of the system.
  • September 05, 2021, 12:46:50
  • therevills:
  • Anyone else experiencing new Windows10 bugs recently? I cant click on Shutdown via the Start menu.. and Copy/Paste via keyboard and context menu is dodgy on some apps (eg Sticky Notes) :(
  • September 05, 2021, 11:18:46
  • Steve Elliott:
  • At least you've got one, they're expensive on ebay.

  • 3DzForMe:
  • Dreampt I got a fast Amiga the other night.... Think it mightve been a 2000 or 3000 variant. That's what comes of having an old 1084S stereo monitor as a trip hazard in the spare room/office.

  • Way of the Exploding Fist is looking great on Spectrum Next.
