That's rather interesting; it opens up the possibility for an
alternative mechanism for reflashing it by pretending to be an official
Amstrad firmware update...
Incidentally, while I was poking about on Usenet, I found a number of
reports that if you prevent the e-mailer from calling the 0800 advert
retrieval number for more than a few weeks, it'll stop working
completely. How long have you had it set up like that?
(This isn't a problem with *my* E2, because I long since accidentally
erased a chunk of the firmware I hadn't backed up...)
