  1. Checkmate 1500 Build (Part 1)

    Well today my Checkmate case arrived! Despite my initial intention to leave it well alone until the weekend as I have lots of work to do, I couldn't resist opening it up and having a go tonight!
    Whilst I did read the manual (so I thought) there are a few lessons to learn from today's experience.

    1. RTFM from cover to cover. Even if its not for the setup you are doing.
    2. Don't overtighten anything........
    3. Dont assume anything.
    4. Try not to let your excitement ...

  3. Never straightforward

    Deep sigh .......Well, I was trying to get Payback working on my towered a1200, but I have started to have issues with it. Programs failing due to 80000004 errors or something like that.
    Googling seemed to suggest possible memory errors and it seems to be worsening, so I put Amiga Analyser on disk and ran the memory tests, and it found errors in the 256mb I have on the blizzard and SCSI kit.
    So, removed memory from the SCSI kit and reran tests - all passed
    swapped ram stick over ...

  4. Blizzard 1230MKIV

    Well for my soon (ish) to be Checkmated a1200 I decided I needed a bit more oomph. I know everyone is going nuts for 68060s but I splashed out an a nice Blizzard 1230 MkIV with fpu and 32mb RAM. That will do for this one. It also means I can run CWB3.9 as I have got bored with 3.1.4.1 being honest.

    Ok so I finally got my AA3000+ after postal services resumed and hese could actually ship it to Canada (thank you hese!). After some initial troubles with the Super DMAC dying (thank you again hese for the support)...I finally got the AA3000+ running in my A3000 case (with a new Super DMAC chip) and I settled in on getting my replacement LED board working. (I had earlier purchased an A3000 system but it came with no LED board). Luckily the seller had made some replacement LED PCB's and he did include ...
