    [QUOTE=RetroMatt;980366][U][I][B]Part #5 - If the universe is ever expanding, what's it expanding into ?[/B][/I][/U]

    Well, another day with two updates - but, I felt it prudent as I can approach the topic I've had the most comments on so far.. expansion cards !

    OK - this is perhaps the BIGGEST rabbit hole of them all. My research into this is still ongoing as to what's possible - there's just so many options & choices out there. What I figured quite quickly was I ...

    [QUOTE=RetroMatt;980313]Thanks for the words of encouragement. Expansions cards is definitely a topic I'll be revisiting at some point in the future. Cost is somewhat prohibitive to me at the minute as I'm trying to do this on a budget - but satisfy my basic needs without getting too carried away, yet...

    [QUOTE=RetroMatt;980169][U][I][B]#3) Initial Requirements & First Stage Mods[/B][/I][/U]

    Two posts in one day - well, there's been a lot going on..

    My Amiga is still in the same state it was previously - in bits awaiting return of the recapped motherboard & repaired keyboard.

Unfortunately the lack of software and disks available to me at the time prohibited me from doing as an extensive a test as I would like (eg. testing the Techno Turbo adapter)- so I set about checking what I could and ...
