Aging electronics

While the death of my beloved non-yellowed A3000 keyboard last month wasn't really worth mentioning, now the Voodoo card also has died. The screen just froze and the Amiga refused to reboot. I had to turn it off and on again to get it going. Now the voodoo card is no longer recognized by the mediator.

As the Sonnet needs PCI memory to start up, the development is on hold for the moment until I got a replacement. I noticed they are rather rare.

The A3000D is a cramped machine and Voodoo cards get rather hot. I would rather put it all in a tower. But then I would first need a 3.3V mod on the A3000T/A4000T mediator. I'll be looking also into getting it all to work on a Radeon card.

Stay tuned..
