Hardware / 2 questions
« on: 2010.October.29. 11:19:04 »
Hi!

I am currently going through the old magazines to scan the content (see other thread). I noticed a picutre of the EP with diskdrives etc.
Have these original add-ons been actually made or not, I wonder? There's nothing on internet about them..

Another question. I am podcaster for the dutch gadget and techno podcast "Tech45". I am considering starting my own (english) podcast as well, focussed on 8-bit computers. My personal interest is in MSX and Enterprise machines, so I thought I'd start with that. I wonder if anyone from the forum would be interested to join in once in a while. Maybe it'll be a one-off, I don't know :-) As with the other podcast, recordings will be through skype. Interested, drop me a message or email marco at marcof dot net.

I was lucky to get years 1984-1992 of this magazine. In a few issues there are tests of the EP64 and EP128. I'll scan these soon and put them online. I will also translate them if there is any interest.

Here are a few quick snapshots of the covers and one article:






is this site still active? http://ep.homeserver.hu/ep128english.htm - maybe the scans can be added there?

We started to collect the money. It is possible to pay through PayPal or with creditcards. I will write the details to the concerned members.


I have replied your email. Paypal is preferred for me.

thanks for the info.
which color will the polo have?

i converted about 4000 HUF to Euro (3000HUF t-shirt and 1000HUF postage?), which is about 16,- euro

You can put me down for 2 pieces in preferably 3XL. If not available 2XL is ok too.
Logo on front+URL on back would be cool, I think. But whatever design comes out, I'll take 2!

here's an ep128:
ebay

The above 64 is very interesting, but I'd only be interested in the exdos module. I have 3 enterprise computers already ;-)

also:
lots of stuff from the same seller, including private enterprise magazines

crap, looks like I have to ask a friend to modify it then. Does the above also show the modification in the EP?

Is it possible to make an S-Video or Composite cable as well?
If so, where can I order it, I'm not good with soldering stuff :)

I shot some pictures of my enterprises today. See the attachements to this post.

I have a UK machine and a German machine, this machine is a bit cleaner, but unfortunately misses the joystick partly.

So, it looks like I have an old model and a later model. I'll be receiving a (UK, I believe) ep64 somewhere next week, wonder what the serial on that one is.

I actually unpacked the german enterprise today. Two years after receiving it. It has been in its box since 2006 :) Surprisingly I found the original Enterprise tape recorder/data corder with it in the box. Forgot about that :)

Maintenance / how to clean the enterprise?
« on: 2008.March.20. 11:54:33 »
what is the best way to clean the enterprise? There's stuff between the keys, joystick rubber etc.

not really visible normally, but when I take some high resolution photos, it is very obvious :)

Nodes of Yesod
Raid
Sorcery
Star Strike 3D
Steve Davis Snooker
Wizard’s Lair
Wordhang
Wriggler

i hope these work though :)
And I have some in the closet as well, although I am not sure which ones.

By request, a little bump of this old thread :)

I own 2 Enterprise 128s, both UK models. An EP64 will be added to the collection, I just won that today.

Pictures will follow as well, once I have the 64, I'll make some nice "family portraits" :-)

Apart from Enterprise, my other vintage passion is MSX.
I have a Goldstar FC200 MSX1 (my first computer), a number of MSX2 computers and lots of hard/software for it.

I'd like to find more Enterprise peripherals, but these seem to be very rare.

as said, images will follow later (in one or two weeks)

indeed, doesn't look too bad. I prefer the lower-case url design
