FS: Misc Acorn (and non-Acorn) hardware
Like Peter Naulls yesterday, I'm trying to get rid of my remaining Risc
PC and the related hardware. I've put them on eBay.
The Acorn-specific items are:
Acorn Risc PC StrongARM 233 MHz + Power-tec SCSI
i-cubed EtherLan600 for Acorn Risc PC/A7000
Acorn Risc PC power supply, backplane and screws
RISC OS Select

Hi. Let me get this one right first.
I have a Mico and a Strongarm Risc PC. What, if different, is the
correct way of describing what I have to the user group?
1. How many users of Acorn machines are out there? I dont want to know
if you/they use PCs as well.
2. I understand that RO ltd. and Castle are the main suppliers of
Acorn stuff. Any others,please enlighten.
3. I feel that should the above suppliers (and others?) bury their
differences and join to form one company, the resultant combine would
be so much stronger and could only benefit the Acorn scene.
If, because of self...FS: Misc Acorn hardware

some various bits of Acorn hardware I no longer need:
