§Relocated to my ISP's newer server to gain webspace!

I now have a second, "Model B" Pi, with 512Mb of RAM (Which was replaced by Farnell after it suffered SD card socket failure - eventually repaired with black "plastikard") and a new "Model A" Pi

Which allowed me to resurrect the BBC Basic/NC200 version of my "Aid to Electronic Circuit Design Program Package". (IIRC the first version ran via teletype on a mainframe at Q.M.C. in the mid-1970's)
