Can I ask you for some nice pictures of both sides of the board?

I just checked and we don't have your board pictured here: http://archive.worldofdragon.org/index. ... d_Pictures

We have the Issue 6 board with the "(P/N 48127)" marking though.
Will do. It might be a couple of days, but i'll pull the board out and get it photographed.

Regarding means to load software, you can take a look at the CASduino if you want to load tape images, or the DragonMMC, CoCoSDC or Drivewire, if you want to load tape/disk/rom images, either from a SD card or from a modern computer.
Out of interest which of DragonMMC, CoCoSDC and Drivewire would people recommend for a vanilla D32? I'm interested in adding one of these to my machine, preferably with a minimum of internal modification. Longer term I might try upgrading the memory to 64k, and trying Nitros-9, but I'm not keen to wave a soldering iron too near the Dragon quite yet.

I’d say that if you don’t want to connect the Dragon to another computer, the DragonMMC and the CoCoSDC are your best options.

Check them, compare their caveats and decide what’s best for your needs. Both are excellent products.

... Don't we all do?! :D
I don't play much these days, but I still enjoy listening to the brilliant soundtrack of some games, such as "James Pond 2 - Robocod". Sometimes, I even use some as a background music while working ("longplays" from YouTube are just great for this).

And, by the way, welcome!
