Well, I ordered a used 1581 and it arrived today, finally. Things didn't work out quite as it should though: the manual consisted of the etext from Project 64 on a disk (which is quite unuseable on a C64 without a printer) and it had JiffyDOS installed, and it wasn't supposed to. The lack of manual was dissapointing, but since I have free access to nice double sided laser printers I'll leave it at that. The presence of JiffyDOS though is a problem, since my TFC3 simply crashes when it tries to load from the 1581, so I'm stuck with an unaccele- rated 1581 which I find somewhat annoying. This leads me to a few questions that I hope some of you could answer: 1. Does JiffyDOS have a *good* ML monitor? If that's the case I could just throw out my TFC3 use that instead. 2. Is the problem specific to TFC3? Ie could I get an AR6 instead? 3. Maybe someone on this list would be interested in trading their manual and original ROMs for my JiffyDOS ROMs? 4. Should I just try to fix my EPROM burner and make a new set of ROMs from the images on funet and stop whining? Life's hard. PS: the SMOS kernel is flashing the screen on my SX-64 :) -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + . . + + Per Olofsson o-o . . . o + MagerValp@Goth.Org - + + . http://www.cling.gu.se/~cl3polof/
