Bit of a suprise that you've the most "southern" Scottish accent that I've ever heard :D

Nah, it's a New Zealand accent, although it sounds like he's spent a bit of time over here (or vice versa.)


I wouldn't expect anyone other than an Aussie, Kiwi or linguist to tell the difference, though.

It Took a Good Listen But i think it is a New Zealander (Very similar to Australian) But he did not say " six " once, to us that sounds like " Sex "


Good video


Thanks

Definitely a kiwi, without a doubt.
Possibly one now living in Aus though.

Hi everyone,

For about the last year I have been downloading Amstrad videos (Using 4K Video Downloader) from YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion to watch on the TV. Most Amstrad videos available are games orientated but there are a few for Amstrad hardware and even one or two for non-game software. Though not a hardware type myself, it is interesting to see how machines can be repaired, modded etc. If I find any that may be of interest I will post them for you to look at.
Here is one for today - nice looking mod - not so sure about the music:

I considered doing a retro computer repair channel on Youtube at one time, but lack of time, an accent that no-one would understand and several other factors stopped me from doing it. I prefer hardware tutorials to be written anyway, as it's easier to reference back to a document.

@ComSoft6128: I did actually think that you were posting a video that you had made... Until he started talking.

Btw: The LM7800 is an extremely robust part, it's highly likely that just the capacitor needed to be changed. He may have been getting 11V on the IC, but if the capacitor was in that state, most of the current could have been going through the capacitor instead of supplying the 7800.

Hi Bryce,

Good point, I will highlight the author in future videos.

Cheers,
