Re: Progress bar loading

Yeah. I like the loading used by the Electron which loaded in blocks and it said on screen which block was loading. If one part failed you could go back and try loading that again without having to redo the whole lot. It would be handy to know how much is left to load - i.e a countdown rather than a...

Re: Progress bar loading

Oh. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if/when I've loaded a tape from the HIRES screen. :roll:

FDC connector

IS there another name for floppy power connectors - apart from 4-pin FDC connectors?

I'm trying to sources some cables that are FDC to FDC rather than molex to FDC or some longer FDC cables that I might be able to join together.

Oops. Missed that - it's hard to see. The other links should be good. Pens made in Germany. There seem to be other stockists.
