Re: Quadruple Your Internet Speed for Free..

In home usage some 50 Mbit/sec, so about 6 MBytes/sec is quite fine for normal user, 1-2 computers. Free fileshare goes not over 6 MB/sec usually. And even some larger DL of free SW, like Linux distro goes not much faster, if is faster at all. I don't think that transfer speed has much with ping. Pi...

Re: Quadruple Your Internet Speed for Free..

We can laugh on that video, but that guy is making serious money with his crap. In 1 minute I spent there 2 ads popped up.
And such things will be more and more present, I expect. As far as some make money with it - YouTube in first place.

Re: Falcon IDE read failing at higher frequencies

I don't think that replaced IDEtoSD or SD card, especially the later have some influence in it. Surely it has - because they are both dead now. ;-) Fortunately I have the same brands of those so I can rule out some incompatibility introduced by new hardware. I think that I was clear with my writing...

Re: Falcon IDE read failing at higher frequencies

It is clear that IDE works not well now, after that shortcut, when it is overclocked. And that before it worked. I don't think that replaced IDEtoSD or SD card, especially the later have some influence in it. Surely they are not all same, some can work faster, some not. It is just that they are new ...

Most likely Combel is damaged - injured, not killed.

Re: TOS startup sequence.

It's simple in fact. Negative value is 16-bit, and if you sub it from $10000 will get 16-bit positive value - what is in case of HW port always negative number (bit 15 is 1). You can use Windows calculator in programmer and hex mode for it. -$7FFF = $10000-$7FFF = $8001 - MMU config reg. Physical ad...

Re: TOS startup sequence.

Here is begin of TOS 1.04 (ST) , with some comments . TOS104SU.ZIP Can add more comments, just need some time and what is exactly of interest. It's not hard to follow once you get used on strange HW addressing at most places: suba.l a5,a5 lea -$7800(a5),a0 move.b #7,(a0) move.b #$C0,2(a0) move.b #$E...

Re: TOS startup sequence.

Actually, initial palette is set right after Vfreq. set, so nothing happens between those 2 :D Checked in TOS 1.04 and 2.06 .
It is all in very early stage, so many things will be set after it, before first screen output.

Re: 4mb STFM with accelerator - was there an equivalent way back when?

This talk about what SW was made first for which computer, OS is really pointless in my opinion. Good SW firm, programmers will make quality SW for any platform after some time. And this "Only when PC got ussable Windows GUI, only then software was ported to it. " is complete wrong. DOS SW was big b...
