    Me again. Back on my PC...

    I would have typed more, but I ran out of buffer. I only have 1KB in my terminal.

    Glorious glory is better than regular glory. :)

    Take it easy Magnus, you're the king.

    Wow, I did not think that was still possible. =) Both me and Magnus pretty much learned most programming on an Apple II.

    The first computer that entered our home was probably around 1978, and it was an ABC80. Being two years younger than Magnus and looking up to him what he was doing, I wrote my first basic lines on that one at the age of 5-6.

    But I think it was that Apple II that was the coding revolution for Magnus, as that is where he spent every day coding, something.. While I was riding bikes and playing Atari 2600 instead. :P

    This is a unique multi-trick effect unit. I am definitely enjoying what this can do to source audio. I like also what you have done with the Analog Section; many nice tricks there as well as in the 2 Instruction zones. I wonder... What on earth is a "kiloword"? I do not understand the use of "word" in the manual. Otherwise, wow what a beautiful yet brief manual. I like the cover. I thought I might be reading the manual to my Juno. Nice :)

    Well, of all the tricks this unit is capable of, I know there must be a switch somewhere to make it brew coffee and bring it to me in the morning... Ah,...wishful thinking

    Good work bringing us a unique device and thanks for the nice discount. Please explain the use of "word" in the manual when you have a moment.

    Cheers!

    Ah, right. It is very technical. A data word is simply a group of bits. Before the 8-bit word (the byte) became standardized there were many other sizes. E.g. the PDP-8 (which also stood as inspiration for the GUI) used a 12-bit word size.

    I like the cover. I thought I might be reading the manual to my Juno. Nice :)

    Hehe, our retro-nostalgia knows no limits.

    Btw, is this really true? That would be incredibly awesome if it is.
