Re: Making a PCB is easy...

Hi Mikee, Very interesting....that is one hell of a "find". What made you look that up? Going back to the late 1970's I used to buy ETI (Electronics Today International) and Elektor magazines from my local WH Smiths, whenever there was an interesting article I wanted to see or try out. (I was a budd...

Re: WCG stats

Hi all

And now Einstein@home has joined this particular "movement":

I guess that the named stats websites will be OK...but others will not (including ubtstats.co.uk).

WCG stats

Hi all I just became aware that apparently WCG has stopped exporting it's credit stats, due to GDPR legislation.

Re: Win an 8086 CPU - closes at 1AM Saturday UK time.

Hi Mark Entered....doubt I'll win though :-( I skipped the 8086/8088 generation and went straight for an 80286 and added an 80287 afterwards... If I win one though, the specs look good, but it won't fit my 80286 motherboard ;-) (or any other mobo I have)....which means I'll have to buy a suitable mo...

1 million on Rosetta for me ;-)

Hi all At last I've got there...one million credits on Rosetta. :-) It's taken me ages to get there...and it's one of the earliest BOINC projects I joined too (25th Sept 2005), so there's not really an excuse for it taking nigh on 13 years to achieve this. So, I'll treat myself to a wee drop of beer...
