Re: Oric Atmos query

C21 is important for RESET signal else replacing all electrolytic capacitor is good idea.

Re: Oric Atmos query

I have the same issue with an Atmos I recently bought.

Re: Replic'Oric

And one more thing: What about using (UV)EPROM instead of PROM? I mean pin 27 /PGM - would it work as expected with microdisk in regard of ROMDIS signal?

Re: Oricutron with serial port emulation

@Godzil: Indeed, IRC client is better and this is on my todo list :D.
But now I wonder what do you think about to add networking to Replic'Oric?

Re: Replic'Oric

Nice work, Godzil!
