This will teach me to ask the list before I even take a proper look....

The 6502 wasn't even properly in the socket, just sort of resting in it
(how it survived the trip down one set of stairs into my car, a 200 mile
car journey, a trip up 3 flights of stairs to my flat, plus a couple of
movements around without actually falling out, I'll never know...

Still, I plugged it in properly, and now I have a fully working 3016!

The chap I got these off made me promise not to tell him how easy they'd be
to fix, as he'd be upset. I think in the case of the 3016, he'd be crying
into his beer...!

B-Racing: B where it's at :-)
