What's New 2016


Please see below for 2016 updates to BeebMaster


6th February 2016 I held back my February update this year to specially coincide with Accession Day, being the first occasion in our history when a reigning Monarch has clocked up 64 years, which is very nice 8-bit computery number as well, and you can see my special Royal update here. For pure 8-bit computery I can offer you some Atomic magic today:
This is one of my Atoms fitted with an MMC interface in June 2010.
Shortly after photographing the Atom MMC, I devised a reliable method of recording Atom screenshots.
Here's the Atom being used in conjunction with its new MMC add-on.
With the MMC software I have, saving files to the card using the Atom is a bit involved - 36 pictures' worth of involved, to be precise.
3rd January 2016 Happy new year! I hope you'll take a look at these first updates to 2016:
This is a BBC Model B that I've had for a few years: it has the 1770 disc upgrade but sadly it's under the weather.
Here's a set showing some RAM tests being run on the machine.
2016 is a very significant year for Laserdisc, as November this year will mark 30 years of the BBC Domesday Project. This year's updates will be peppered with laserdisc related updates, starting today with a look at some of my collection of the early BBC Video releases
This is my collection of laserdiscs in the BBC Video "1000" series.
A special close-up look at the first in the series, Mr Smith's Vegetable Garden, and probably therefore the first-ever BBC laserdisc.
A set on this laserdisc being put through its paces with a VP406.
