Re: Dropping sales concerns

Usually early Summer is not best for computer related sales. Of course there are other factors too. Maybe there is some saturation of this market area ? I see pretty low activity on Atari forums too. And something what worries me most: I see some global economic crysis can be in early stage - there ...

More bad discovered - sorry, but it is good to know why and when some things happen, and to be prepared for ... There is max total 14 partitions limit in TOS - letters C-P.

TOS max 14 partitions (logical drives) limit

It is known that TOS can handle max 14 hard disk partitions (logical drives) in range C-P .

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I will not bother with some patchers when I have disassembled ASM source of 1.04. Just looked German v. - it has extra code starting at same loc. as Spanish, and it must be something for entering special characters when Alt is held down. 90 bytes plus, so I need only to disasm that part and add it t...
