Tests that work on 8bit and Risc models plus emulators. Preferably tests that eliminate the unrealistic speed results of cached processors. Writing to the screen, shifting large chunks of memory repeatedly all the usual stuff. I know there probably has I'm just ignorant of its existence. Also perhaps part of the same program above, information on what processor etc, so you can tell exactly what type of BBC you have. It would state RAM, Shadow RAM, Sideways etc plus ROMs fitted. Disk interface chip, 2nd processors etc. Also how about a nice program for hunting out BBC screens and displaying them that can move between filing systems easily. Recognising them by their file size would be fine. Again there may be such a program already but I'm unaware of it. A simple key press or up and down menu would enable movement between drives 0,1,2,3 and hard drive 4.  From: 4WL (Martin Wilson) Subject: Wanted RAM chips 4x 424260-80 type RAM chips (512k each in size). Perhaps you have an old SIMM that has this type of memory chip fitted. The -80 bit is the speed of the chip so it shouldn't matter if this is between 60 and 100 instead of 80. Obviously it doesn't have to be a SIMM it could be some other expansion board but the point being is it has to be something only worth scrapping as you'd get 8 such chips on a 4MEG SIMM for ten pounds new so I'm only really interested in paying about 3 pounds for the four second hand or if you had a 4MEG SIMM with these on I'd pay about 7 pounds. I think this is an older type memory chip so it may be more likely to find 2 on a 1 MEG SIMM or 4 (2 on each side) on a 2MEG SIMM. Because I need them to fit in sockets they have to be the right type. The ones already fitted to the board are made by NEC.
