In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

Eh? How can you plug a power supply into the expansion bus?

Or ave I missed something?

You can't plug it in but you can make enough contact to kill the machine :)

Ah yes, I get you, thanks. I'd forgotten it has a proper socket rather than an edge connector.

In which case... I might suggest bypassing the regulator and feeding it with a 5v supply. That shouldn't fry the board if accidental contacts occur with the bus. Mine's like that and I've had no problems (although I confess I did it more for expediency than safety; I don't have a proper Oric power supply).
