Right... Have got back to the warm and cosy William Gates Building here in Cambridge after my trip to Amsterdam. I think I ought to apologise if I offended anyone by my rather sweeping remarks regarding the practice of collecting old computers. I don't really intend to alienate them from our little "community", rather they should be encouraged to join in and learn the skills that make the hobby so rewarding for us all. I haven't read my email since this morning, and I think it's probably best to get a good night's sleep before doing so, but in case you are interested my "consolation" has been a thoroughly successful trip to Amsterdam and of course I got straight down to tinkering with the toys I brought back. Specifically, I finally have a YM2413 OPLL chip (a derivative of YM3812 OPL2 that you can install in the Sound Expanders) and will be trying to build an adaptor to connect the MSX cartridge it's in to a Sega Master System expansion port, for more lovely FM musics. You can read more about this in the standard Sega 8 bit and MSX channels. Richard Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
