Is Cumulus dead?

Hi

I put my name down for a Cumulus long ago, on both the original threads, but have heard nothing.

What is going on? I don't visit often.

Cheers

This is why we need another solution.
I'm still here. Waiting for a PM to say it's ready... :)

Re: Another Microdisc compatible.

Hello Slicebit

When the reset bug is fixed, I would like to buy one of these controllers for my Atmos. Please PM me with availability. Can pay by PayPal. Postage to the UK, please.

:)

Regards

Re: What's on this tape

Probably an in-store demo. Several manufacturers had them. I remember the morning ritual in the shop I worked in, it was all about going round the demo machines loading these cassettes.

Re: Microdisc replacement project

Too late, he's bogged off back to Lapland!

Still, I would not be discouraging you from completing the "Great Work". I want to play Space:1999 on a real Atmos...! ;)

What does everyone think of this?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Oric-Atmos-Du ... 1079589737

Made by someone in Bulgaria, but I think the price is a bit high. Question is, what's the interface board / technique?

Thoughts?

Re: Dual drive and cable

Looky here: http://www.benophetinternet.nl/hobby/sales.htm.

They are £45 and include power supply and cable. Standard A/B Shugart floppy drives. Not sure, but I think they are 40/80 track.

Re: Dual drive and cable

They are not Oric drives, they are a pair of generic Shugart standard drives in a nice box with a b,ack cable and power supply. Cost me £35 from a guy in the Netherlands. He's got more if you want any, but I'll have to post his site URL when I get home.
