Last winter I had some problems with the brake servo on my Amazon. This brake servo is from a brand called Powertune and it is likely to be made in China. The problem was it wouldn't work after the car had some weeks not being used. By applying a strong foot on the brake pedal it would come loose and work again. This winter this also didn't work: it just stopped working at all.
So I went to my local workshop and the mechanic advised to install a new one. He used a Powertune again, because this unit is much cheaper than a genuine Lockheed. This unit would work but with some flaws. It had a retarded reaction on the foot. After applying the brakes firmly the servo would come in but after a second. Releasing the brake pedal it also released the brakes a second or so later. This is very annoying.
So I got in my car to visit the mechanic again, but now it works much better. Not as smooth as it should be but the retarding is almost gone.
I pre-ordered one of those new exiting version 2 accelerator boards for the Amiga 600 designed and made by Majsta and the Apollo team. I can't wait to get my hands on one!
Among the features are:
- Fastest ever CPU emulation
- 128MB RAM
- HDMI video output
- SD card storage integrated
- Core updatable direct through the Amiga
If you are interested to buy one yourself, go to Kipper2k's website.
I just got back from a nice holiday trip to Greece.
A short report of this trip can be found here. Dutch only.
I got a spare edge connector from some nice Italian guy and I soldered it in. It works perfectly!
I also bought a replacement MFM harddisk via someone at A1k.org. I got it to work after many tries by circumventing bad sectors on the Amiga partition. As the MS-DOS-partition avoids these automaticaly, the Amiga apperently does not. So I chose the cylinders that are not bad for the Amiga side. The partition is quite small, but it works well now.
