Coz those capacitors in the power supply don't half make a pong when they let the magic smoke out.

<phew>

Fixable though I hope.

128? doesn't that make it a Master?
Sold my BBC B on ebay for 99p.......thought I'd get a tad more :(
Anyone want to buy 150 tap games in original boxes?
Got some A310 games too.

I think I gave my BBC B to my brother in law for nothing about 20 years ago. I might raise an invoice.

My Model B is sitting in a heap of things behind my armchair.

I reckon there's a good chance it'd still work if I plugged it in. If I do plug it in, and strange smells exude from it absent of the "beeeep-BEEP!" that indicates a successful boot, I'll go and hang around the entrance to Zeity's place of work until I can persuade him to fix it ;)
