UMI ROMs burnt and installed in my Master 128. Not much use without the MIDI interface though. I've been looking for a schematic, but have so far come up with absolutely nothing.

I fear that's rather beyond my capabilities +Chris McClelland​, but I'll certainly have a go.

I'm fairly sure my Arc 310 has a MIDI/User port poodle +Alex Taylor​. Really should dig that machine out next, but I'm running out of room.

Last of the Beebs rescued. I don't think I've been inside this one before, but it looks like an upgraded Model A. Half the RAM is socketed and made in West Germany, whereas the rest is of Japanese origin.

Other odd things of note are the early ULA, bit without a heatsink, and the bodge wire on the far right of the board. On the subject of bodges, the WE ZIF ROM PCB is clearly repurposed!

Wasn't me +Steve Evans​. I think I brought this one from school. It's a 64k B+ with some funky ROMs installed. It's also absolutely filthy! Power supply recapping in progress.

BBC Master recovered from the parent's house. Remarkably clean inside, but the case was filthy, so spent the evening of Christmas day in the bath.

The backup battery had leaked, but the gunk was contained by the heatshrink. Visually the PSU looks good, but I'll be replacing the three capacitors that commonly fail before plugging it in.

Yeah, there's some very cool stuff there. I can't tell you how many times I've come close to buying his/her mini Apple Lisa raspberry pi, even though I have no use for it whatsoever.

A small and intimate venue close to Old Street. Due to it's size it is unlikely to attract well known acts, but it does attract interesting ones. Warning: The PA speakers in front of the stage are VERY loud!

Possibly my least favourite music venue. It is just too big and completely lacking in atmosphere. The security staff are among the most unpleasant and power crazed that I have come across. Despite this, I would go again in order to see a band that interested me.

The idea of a museum of domestic interiors may seem mundane, but is in fact rather fascinating. Various rooms chart the development of the English home through the ages. It is particularly worth visiting around Christmas, when the rooms are adorned with period festive decorations. The museum itself is of architectural interest, being housed in a superb set of Georgian Almshouses. Since the opening of the East London Line, the museum is much easier to get to!

Despite it's impressive makeover a few years ago, Peter Jones retains the feel of an old fashioned department store - not that there is anything wrong with that. The most important historical features were retained in this refurbishment. The range of products is impressive and the staff friendly and helpful. The cafeteria on the top floor sells a range of good food and is reasonably priced.

Greenwich Park is situated on a steeply sloping site, rising from Greenwich itself towards Blackheath. At the foot of the hill is located the Queen's House and National Maritime Museum and at the top, the former Royal Observatory. As well as the historic buildings and the museums within them, the park provides spectacular views over central London and Docklands.

One of London's less well known parks, but also one of the best. It is a lot smaller than some of the other parks, but size isn't everything. The park is divided into various different areas and includes woodland, various sculptures and other artworks and the remains of Holland House. The giant chess set is a wonderful feature, as are the peacocks that roam the area.
