Default Re: Karen's PICL - PCB available

This is making me a little nervous for MK14man - he was active online until quite recently talking about an AVR port of Karen's PIC14. The last time I expressed concern for his welfare he popped up here, very briefly, and gave us a wave (and then disappeared again) so maybe the same thing will happen this time.

This April snapshot seems complete:
Well spotted. Does archive.org aim to hang on to things indefinitely or is there a timeout?

I would expect that Tim has grabbed every grabbable thing from the original site and I have offline copies of all the .PDF manuals, etc, as I'm sure most here have. It would be nice to see the site preserved somehow, the content is quite low bandwidth so it could even be hosted on a Raspberry Pi or something like that.

The content could do with being updated a little as well, for example with the V2 / SCIOS compatible version of the user manual which Martin L managed to dig up from somewhere.

Anyway: I'm drifting. Back to Phil and his progress on PICL.

Seems he's still around, he last tweeted in October 2020:
twitter.com/mk14man
Looks a busy man...

Paul Robson is there too...

Yes I have a lot archived and exchanged mails with Paul last month so I am sure he will have a copy he can put elsewhere - if you remember he uploaded the Scrumpi 3 emulator to his github.

Hi, just to say that i'm out of action for a while, had a motorbike accident Friday and I've broken all my ribs, xray consultant says he's never seen a full house before. Back soon all being well with more PICL ideas. Cheers

It says something that even in that state you still came here to keep us updated! Sorry to hear about the accident, best wishes for a speedy(?) recovery.

Probably not in someone that survived. They must have you on some good painkiller to be able to post anything so soon.

I think you’ve used up all your good luck, so be careful and get well soon.
