Rab C? Really? I'm not even Glaswegian.

Or do you mean Gregor Fisher?

I'm more insulted you think i'm a soft southern Glaswegian :P

If you have a PC with a parallel port then there is a $5 parallel cable clone that on eBay that i think can be used to flash the xilinx chips with impact.

I have one, I'll dig it out and work out the pinout. There are also schematics for the parallel cable on the net.

But the official USB clone is much nicer.

I'd be too scared to mess it up

hahaa, it just makes me chuckle to myself everytime he goes live for a second.
Kudos to him though, it must be such a drag people moaning at him.
I think it's great work considering the cost of an SX1/SX32... We can't really moan can we, just support the guy.

I'm going to donate some money when I get paid Steve... I do appreciate it and I do hope that didn't offend.

@solidcore

I've done a few more tweaks on our wiki install instructions... just to be slightly more detailed.
It's looking really good now, your re-arrangement and input is awesome, it looks a lot more legible, easier to follow and lovely to read!!

I was talking to Edu about making something like this to finalise the whole project...
either in a solid plastic or seethrough... took me a while to get the idea over to him, but made something quick in Photoshop.















The riser still has the CD32 center mount hole (for the original cover), so it could be mounted with the original philips thread.

Yeah his riser does but kipper's doesn't, at least not mine, so it would be good to have another option that snaps onto the bottom half of the riser, any riser

I still haven't looked into this but I will!

dont forget you will need to find a new screw (and a spacer to hold it straight) as the original screw is too short

@Akira
Good idea, but you won't have the support and the edge connector could still move/flap around, could you not pilot a hole or are traces running through that area?

@Kipper2k
I can use my FWSI one with the plastic shealth... if it turns out to be the same depth anyhow.
