@CC_333 unfortunately, all of them sold out very quickly - however, i do have another batch of boards due to arrive tomorrow - these are all blue with enig gold finish. You're welcome to one of those, I have 30 of them!

Just picked up board #1 from the post office. :)

Still not sure why that honor hit me and also not sure if it should go onto my wall of logicboards or if I should populate it.

Considering it’s a board that will work I guess it’s going to be populate and use it :)

It was entirely random, honest! ;)

 

I'm excited for your SE/30 board, can't wait to build one up!

Hi, Fantastic work, what's the procedure for getting a blue one?

Dm me! They're £36 + p&p each, comes with a 15.6672 MHz oscillator

 

Speaking of, @Bolledid your package still contain the sheet of oscillators I sent?

Mine came in today!

 

Sadly, the certificate of authenticity did not make it. So its just an unknown board. 

 

But it sure is pretty! 

Must be board zero.

  • 2 weeks later...

I have been busy assembling my board for the past couple of weeks and finally arrived here today

The board isn't quite fully assembled yet, but I couldn't wait to try it out :)

 

The only Issue I have found is some of the desoldered chips have quite short legs and are very loose in the sockets so I may have to change the sockets (Or just solder them direct, but I am trying to avoid doing that if possible)

Woo woo... awesome!  Someone should keep a record of the DoB for the original "Twenty" ...  :-D

Awwww don't make it competitive - I haven't even started yet... I got distracted by the RAM stuff and some Acorn stuff.

I wasn't thinking about that, nor was it my reason for mentioning... there is already "competition"... and it looks like @Bolle won... didn't he get 'board "1"?  :huh:

 

I was merely thinking that as there are only "twenty", it'd be interesting to record when they take their first "breath"!  :-)

Yes, very much so and I wish I hadn't been so out of the loop with this stuff!  @Kai Robinson many congratulations, this is absolutely awesome!  I'm not sure if I need to pick a board up as my SE works for the moment, but I still find it totally awesome!

 

I've been out of the loop, is a future SE/30 in the works?

Got it, should've looked more closely before posting!

 

I have an SE/30 board that's missing most of the cap pads but worked at one point that would be good as a parts machine to test with!
