Hardware Help... (Dead BBC B+ & A7000/RPC Econet boards.) #2
Two issues here... In setting up a museum demonstrating various Acorn
platforms, I'm stuck wih two problems... I'm hoping someone on this
group might be able to asist me...
First is a dead BBC B+ I've plugged it in and set it all up. Switched
it on... And... Nothing... No signs of life... I've opened it up and
cleaned it up... No signs of any blown fuses or fried components. It's
almost as if the mainboard isn't getting any power. I've quickly
inspected the PSU and found no obvious site of component failure there
either. This one came from a family friend who last...WTD: BBC B Hardware
I was just wondering if anyone has any old BBC's knocking around? I'm
looking to put together a working system with a disk drive; preferably
a model b or later but beggars can't be choosers.
I'm really looking to put together a small econet network for the sake
of nostalgia as well as learning how it all works together. We got a
econet in my final year of school but I never had the chance to really
get acquainted with it before I left for college where I was
introduced to something called a 286 PC :(
Money is, as always, not as prevalent as I would like but I can offer
something or make a donation to a favourite charity if that would be
Thanks for taking the time to read this and fingers crossed on any
recent loft clear outs!

I have a BBC Plus 64K that I've recently completed rebuilding, and I'd
love to play Aviator and Elite on disk. Unfortunately, the versions of
these games I have don't run on the B Plus. Can the Plus features be
software/hardware switched back to the standard BBC B?
I know the later Superior release of Elite was tweaked to play with the
later machines, but was Aviator's code ever adapted for the newer Beebs?

Might just be a shadow screen RAM issue? ISTR having problems years
ago trying to run some games on an ACW (which is B+ based) which were
fixed by issuing a '*shadow off' before running the game.

As John stated in the DLL Hell thread:
"Really? How many of those links are cases of "DLL Hell'? Thats where
a program replaces an existing Windows DLL with its version. All these
are a bunch of links where a DLL is missing or corrupted. Its a pretty
safe bet that 10.3 also will suffer from missing or corrupted files due
to disk problems. As evidenced by the frequent need to trash certain
programs preference files."
This is the age-old "cheap unreliable hardware" argument that John
always runs back to when cornered about Windows' shortcomings.
Isn't it interesting that whenever Mac advocates bring up Apple's
unique ability to integrate high-quality hardware and software, the
Winidiots always blast Apple for not selling cheap commodity hardware?
Yet whenever Windows has a problem, the Winidiots always seem to blame
it on "cheap hardware." Some Winidiot always loudly trumpets the fact
that "you can get PC system X down at Fry's for $499," but whenever
Windows fucks up, the excuse is "well, what do you expect from a bargain
You can't have it both ways, kids. Either cheap hardware is a
benefit, or it's a curse. It's been proven that Apple's high end
machines (Dual G5s) have a significant price/performance advantage over
dual Xeon systems, yet Wintel lovers like to whine about how expensive
Macs are. If you combine this with the fact that...BBC B/Electron Hardware Projects
I've just unearthed my trusty old BBC B and am wanting to do some
hardware projects with her. Namely to monitor and log data from a
weather station. Has anyone done anything similar?
There was an article in Electron User for how to make one but I've not
been able to get hold of it. Anyone have this they can scan for me?
Anyone done this on a newer Acorn?

I really liked Hardwar and would be willing to play a persistant online
server. My only real complaint about the game was the dynamics (or flight
model) or the ships is too simplistic. However the rest of the game
somewhat makes up for that.
Also Hardwar has the best soundtrack of any game I've played. I ripped it
to MP3 and play it with the rest of my music all the time.

...Error: a=nominal([1 2 1 2]), b=getlevels(a), b(2)
According to documentation for "categorical", getlevels returns a uniquified version of its input, but is of the same type. I am baffled by the differences in what I see in the input & output:
a=nominal([1 2 1 2])
b(2) % Error: Index exceeds matrix dimensions
b(1) % This scalar index returns all 2 elements
numel(b) % Shows 2 unique elements
I tried a vertical "a", but "b" is still horizontal:
b=getlevels(a) % 1x2 row array of unique numbers
b(2) % Error: Index exceeds matrix dimensions
b(1) % This scalar index returns all 2 elements in 1 row
numel(b) % Shows 2 unique element's
The help pages for categorical data indicate that the following should be OK, but it generates errors:
Error using nominalcheck (line 53)
Invalid types for comparison.
Error in nominal/eq (line 20)
[acodes,bcodes] = nominalcheck(a,b);
In fact, even find(a==2) generates the same error, and I tacked it down to a==2. This means that the following is erroneous as well:

Just about anything. The curve isn't linear. 486s with 4megs of memory
are very distant, 200MHz Pentiums with 36megs of RAM are reasonably close,
and 1GHz computers with 256megs of RAM are basically next to current. Pretty
much the only way the 1GHz machine differs from current computers is a
relatively minor increase in clock speed, but since 1GHz is fine for
most people's useage, the increase in clock speed isn't going to be
noticed much (especially not when memory bus and I/O bus will be what
sets the limit for most useage).
thanks for the speedy response, recommend anything?

What do you guys recommend for a library of commercial hardware? We
are using DBWorks and would like to use custom properties information
in our BOM's.
Fixtures are where we need it for. Do not need it for injection
molding. Currently we have been using a small custom library that one
of the guys made and we keep adding to it.
What about "Library for Standard Parts" by CadParts, Inc., or
"SolidParts" by SolidPartners, Inc., or "SolidWorks Toolbox" by SW? Is
there any different?
Well thanks in advance.

It should be easy enough to spot where the other end was soldered to, if
it was a link. There will either be a solder joint with a bit of wire in
it, or one with the groove from a wire.
