Good News - got the Oric back home and it worked fine with its new
2MHz (I nearly typed 2GHz!!) Motorola 6502. I hooked it up to a tape
deck, ran Xenon-1, and it loaded - FIRST TIME!!
I'm really chuffed that it's up and running.
I'm thinking about projects now, first maybe copying my games (and any
downloadables) to load from CD, a new BASIC ROM (Its still the
original Oric-1 V1.0) to enable the fast loading trick, and Scart
cable project if I have the time and money.
