Martin, I have gazillions of disks for the Tattie. Including Elite (which is copy protected, unfortunately). Most of them contain productivity software, but I have some games too. I also have a prototype SD card device that emulates a FDD, fits to the 50 way expansion port and has a ROM. It was made by SirMorris over at StarDot. Perhaps I should bring some of it?

A list of sorts..
Wordstar
Reportstar
Datastar
DBase
The Cracker (spreadsheet I think)
Tasword II
Tassign
Kuma Devpak / CP/M 80
Microsoft assembler/linker (M80 / L80 I think)
Zork 3 (adventure)
Elite

I've also gut a bunch of user magazines and the hardware manual.. as well as a Tatung Monitor, Tatung printer (it's a rebadged Epson I think) and the Tatung TK02 80 column add-on box.

I'd like to see Charlie's Einstein magic SD card system ;)

I've got two Einstein's in storage that I have not played with yet (both sold as spares/repairs/untested).
One of them has an extra interface with what looks like a video co-ax cable going into a metal box. When I get home later, I'll find the photos I took when it arrived. Then post them here. It may be the same interface as the one that Jon has.

OK, well in that case I will have to bring the Tattie itself, as a ROM is needed (which is currently fitted to mine). Gosh, have not played with that for years. Can't remember how to use the darned thing... it's called "EinSDien" I think.. nice one Charlie...

[Update: I've got it working. Uses DSK images to emulate floppies. Must map image file to emulated disk in ini file on SD card. HArdware not compatible with TK02 80 column card. Firmware is not compatible with Tatung CP/M (won't boot). CTRL-BREAK to boot new MOS, SHIFT-CTRL-BREAK to boot from Drive 0:]

Predictably enough, our very own Dave has written about it: http://primrosebank.net/computers/einst ... nsdein.htm

That URL sure rolls off the tongue!

So now we have...
Tandy Model II with IDE device support.
PCW 8512 with uIDE.
Tatung Einstien with SD support.

Yep, TK02 80 col card, that's the one. Switch is for 80 cola composite / colour RGB mode, I think. Works on the Tatung monitor.

You have all the toys eh Mark?

Well, maybe I have a wide range of bits, but the only disk I have for the Einstein is the one you see in it...

And of course, I can't compete with Dave for Memotech MTX related bits, but I do have a couple of Memotech ZX81 keyboards, various Memotech ZX81 RAM packs, plus some of the other Memotech ZX81 interfaces/expansions.

You should've said. I have stacks of Tattie software. Bring a memory stick.
