"For a mere fifty quid, which doesn't even include carriage," Ahh. Let me get this straight. CAstle are offering FREE carridge to and frem their workshop? That is great news. If not then why mention the carrige.

and they earlier wrote "Not for the faint hearted but nevertheless, Castle will take care of it as well they should. "

Ahh so it is not easy for someone who has no clue how to cut a motherboard track. OK send it to castle and join the queue. OR send it to A6 adn you might get the machine back faster. What happens if your company needs the machine to generate revenue. OK send it toA6 and they charge 50ukp. FOR something I would not kow what to do and to get my machine back a day earlier. I think it would be worth it for some.

"We'd be very interested to hear if STD fiddling with Iyonix motherboards invalidates users' warranties" then someone at Castle said (although it is not all in quotations, typo or edditorial licence?)

"the Simtec team would be "very competent" at carrying out such modifications and that any manual work around the stability fix 'area' wouldn't invalidate your warranty"

Thyen drobe wrote "which is a very real concern"

I'll quote CAstle again

"the Simtec team would be "very competent" at carrying out such modifications and that any manual work around the stability fix 'area' wouldn't invalidate your warranty"

then drobe wrote "although the situation appears to be unclear"

I'll quote castle again

"the Simtec team would be "very competent" at carrying out such modifications and that any manual work around the stability fix 'area' wouldn't invalidate your warranty"

So carrying out this fix yourself does not invalidate your warranty but fgetting A6-Simtec to do it might. <homer simpson mode> DOH!!!!!! <HSM>

Drobe also wrote "It was also revealed that it'd take no more than 40 minutes tops to complete all the stability modifications"

Is thins including testing. OK lets say it is. that means start at 9AM; get 4 done by lunchtime and 5 in the afternoon = 9 machines/day/person.

How many Iyonix have been sold?? let me guess.More than 1000? OK call it 1000. Then that is 1000/9 = 111 days. Yep 111 man/woman days.

So drobe then wrote later. "Clearly we're missing something here so feel free to correct us - until then, we'll have to recommend that users stick to Castle for any official modifications. "

OK so considering my 1000 machine estimate is conservative and that figure = 111 man/woman days; if you follow Drobe's advice I would also get them off to Castle quick or you could be last in teh queue. OR send them off to those BAD BAD NASTY PEOPLE at A6 that sell that BAD BAD NASTY EMMULATOR PRETENDING TO BE A RISCOS MACHINE and they also charge you for working (OHHHHH how EVIL OF THEM). You might get the machine back quicker, or inded slower (I would not care otherwise) but "you" would not have to do it yourself.

Cheers Bob off to "work for a client" and getting paid for it.
