Re: Tellab TL801

Neazoi: I was thinking about the ZX81-compatibility mainly. I'm sure the ZX80-parts are just plain copied from the original, but the NMI-circuitry has a few different implementation variants. Also, the switching between the ZX80- and ZX81-mode can possibly differ too. For example, a ZX81 in FAST mod...

Re: Retro computer fair in Västerås, Sweden

Martin: I will make sure to announce it beforehand next time, so others have more time to prepare.
It sounds like you are better at Swedish than I am at Danish. I try to watch Bonderoeven untexted but it is hard :)

McKlaud: I had good discussions with enough people to warrant the preparations I did.

Re: Tellab TL801

Great to hear that you have one Jens! I have all the original docs and pieces, it's just not built yet.
Do you have any comments on the compatibility of the ready-built computer? Any other opinions about it?
I am really tempted to build it and try it out!

Retro computer fair in Västerås, Sweden

Yesterday I was an exhibitor at a retro computer fair in Västerås, Sweden. I was offered a table for free so I tried to persuade more people to spend time and money on our favourite computers ZX80 and ZX81. Most exhibitors were selling stuff, and some were just showing off their pets. About 300 pers...

Tellab TL801

Yesterday I bought an unbuilt ZX80/81 kit Tellab TL801, which was available via https://web.archive.org/web/20060507212959/http://www.zx80.it/e/indexeng.html It is apparently possible to use a switch to configure it for ZX80- or ZX81-mode, but it is designed more like the ZX80. The PCB is not a bad ...

Re: ZX80/81 in 40 columns

Seen it, tested it, corrected a small bug, commented on it :)
It does work nicely on a ZX80, but as you said, a ZX81 would need changes in the ULA counter to support this.

Re: A Gaggle of ZX81's for sale

Nice to know they went to a good home! Even better if you decide to redistribute if you have too many :)

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Porting would be a waste of someone's time as EO runs very well in Wine under Linux. I'd imagine it runs equally well using Wine for MacOSX?

Re: Document Swedish Library...ZX81/Floppy

Now, how are you getting that from Sweden all the way to Texas?
Hope you get it, and share with us. If you need help, let me know as I live in Sweden.
