That's true, John Ballance *did* mention Simtec (so I don't think Castle have a "problem" with Simtec doing the fix).

Castle for their part are offering the service for free, it's also within A6's/Simtec's rights to offer a charged service for the update (as they otherwise are *not* obliged to do *anything*). I suppose whichever you select would be more dictated by Geography.

The biggest cost for people far from either Castle (or A6/Simtec) is transport (the 50 quid don't matter when couriering it both ways will cost more than TWICE that). Which brings me neatly to an unmentioned third alternative.....

I've been using my Iyonix since October 2003, it has crashed only a very few times (I would hardly describe it's behaviour as "unstable" - then maybe I am not doing the sort of things that would provoke crashes). In my case I'd be tempted to just leave it *as is*, and I suspect others may do likewise.

  • A guide to overclocking Kinetic and StrongARM CPU cards
    Charlie Lane has compiled a package of notes and photos on overclocking various StrongARM processer cards, including Castle Kinetics, for RiscPCs. Overclocking is the process of ramping up the digital timing signals of the computer to force the processor to work faster. Charlie told us: "I thought it would be fun to investigate the possibilities of speeding up my Kinetic RiscPC - only to find suitable information on Kinetic cards was rather hard to come by so I set about working it out for myself." Note: Follow the instructions entirely at your own risk.
