Jokes / Bingo!
« Last post by Charles Hughes on December 15, 2017, 11:28:35 AM »
A man goes into a doctor's office feeling a little ill.
The doctor checks him over and says, 'Sorry, I have some bad news, you have a really nasty virus.
It's called Yellow 24 because it turns your blood yellow and you usually only have 24 hours to live.
There's no known cure so just go home and enjoy your final precious moments on earth.'
So he trudges home to his wife and breaks the news.
Distraught, she asks him to go to the bingo with her that evening as he's never been there with her before.
They arrive at the bingo and with his first card he gets four corners and wins $35.
Then, with the same card, he gets a line and wins $320.
Then he gets the full house and wins $5000.
Then the National Game comes up and he wins that too getting $780,000.
The bingo caller gets him up on stage and says, 'Son, I've been here 20 years and
I've never seen anyone win four corners, a line, the full-house and the national game on the same card.
You must be the luckiest man on Earth!'
'Lucky?' he screamed. 'Lucky?.........I'll have you know I've got Yellow 24'.
' Well,  isn't that fantastic' says the bingo caller,   'You've won the meat raffle as well !!

ARG Crossword Puzzle No: 25

Rearrange the following letters:  N A V Y   P R E E N S   to form the name of an ARG member.  Then insert the first and last initials in 9 across of crossword puzzle 25.
With your experience and ability, I think you will find it straightforward. Just take things carefully, explore how to get the old one out and that will help you putting the new one in.  The only difficulty I encountered was rerouting the internal harness to enable it meeting up with the new emulator. I routed it to cut the corner. Not sure what is inside the EL900, but you will know soon enough.  Again, I am convinced you'll find a way round any problems.
Good luck.  Peter

Hi Peter,  that's what I was thinking, as the system worked on the AR, I am an electrical engineer (or was) in industrial equipment but only a very little in electronics, I just don't want to do any damage.
Will let you know how it goes Cheers.
Hi Dennis,
If you intend to replace a Floppy Disk Drive, with an Emulator, I see no reason why it should not function correctly.
However, I have no idea how to do this on an EL900 as I am not familiar with this instrument.     My guess would be that if an engineer (or some capable person) can replace a floppy disk drive, if it fails, then why not fit an emulator instead.
Hi all I have now obtained a Yamaha EL900 to replace my well loved AR 100 and am hoping that it will be even better, only time will tell.
My question is will the same emulator I fitted to the AR be OK to fit on the EL, I followed Peter's excellent guidance on the AR SO maybe I should direct the question to him.
Best wishes to all and happy playing in future years, Denis.
