BuZz , I had a 32 k ram pack and a Kempston Joystick plus the good old "burning" printer , it was a weird thing that had a little bent needle type thing that burnt the image on to metalised paper .
A friends Dad that worked for BT got me some from work but it was 2 inches too long but he managed to cut it down to size for me and it worked a treat :-)
I also remember the printer was the first " gadget " I fixed as the stylus thing broke but I bought the part off Sinclair and fixed it up .

An! I remember the days you could get 5 pennyworth of chips and still get change from a tanner! probably wrong sort of chips though.

Shame that 64gig is still too small for my mp3 collection. Still using hard disks. Despite being mechanical they seem to last a while.

Love the posts, guys.

Just sharing my success booting W10 from a CoreBios Joggler off one of these Lexar USB sticks so they must be fast / good for our Jogglers

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com ... L1500_.jpg

I went for the 32 gig one for £10.33 but the 16 Gig ones are £7.98
There didnt seem to be any black ones left so i got a blue , if it bothers me plugged in to the Joggler i will colour it in black with a permanent marker :-)

For a while here was using an oversized overpriced true SSD USB stick. I would install these inside and remove the wireless USB stick. I also removed the shell casing for these to fit inside of the Joggler. These did draw more power than a regular USB stick. I also modded one Joggler with another internal USB port and connected this to a micro USB to SSD ZIF card to SSD. This worked too but power hungry and a very tight fit inside of the Joggler. The issues though too with USB anything for OS on the Joggler is that the Joggler resets the power on the USB port when rebooting which plays havoc with any OS. What helps a bit too is to write a ROM to the Realtek internal Gb NIC. Note that the sold Jogglers / Openpeak devices never did have a ROM installed on the Realtek Gb internal NICs.

Just a suggestion for when flashing the Joggler as the USB is only 1.1 and seems to not like either 2.0 or 3.0 flash drives . Use one of those card reader boxes and an SD card. These are made to connect to PC's and will operate with any USB version becuse they have to be designed to be compatible with older PCs with earlier USB versions . I find this works spot on every time . If this is already been put forward in this thread then apologies for the repeat but this is a long thread and I just could read through all of it first .

I wonder if this would also work better for booting a live efi boot image . :-)
