Re: Wanted - Anyone got a STE case knocking about?

I have a full STE case lying about, it is not in terrific shape. The lower part of the case is in reasonable condition, bit yellowed but intact. The top part however has a nasty cut where the floppydrive used to be, it's also a 520STFM top case.....

If you're interested I could post some pictures.

Wanted - Case for 1040 STE

I came in the possesion of a 1040STE, which is working but seems to have had a rough ‘life’, the case is in terrible shape, missing screws, missing the brass support for the floppy drive, etc. So, basically I need a reasonable case to recase this machine to it’s former glory. I am located in the Net...

Re: cosmosex shared drive not working

I had the same problem, but I am running a FreeNAS server at home which is configured as a Samba4 domain controller for authentication. In my past situation (Samba3 server) I could login with the CosmosEX and access my shares. Now, with Samba4 the authentication protocols have changed and older prot...

Another CA4003290, 1989 board....

Ok, let's post my CA4003290, got this from an evilBay auction, the case is terrible, but the board seems in good condition :D. The DMA chip is the 001A variant, so it's a late STE, I guess. It came with TOS 1.62 ROM's, I already upgraded it to TOS 2.06 and replaced the 0 Ohm resistors with proper pi...

Re: ST-IDE-ROM Dev Board v1 - BETA Testers

I have joined the club too, I saw one IDE board listed in the store and decided to buy it. So, now have to wait for stuff to arrive, then solder it up and start cracking.

Re: Atari 800XL: Ultimate 1MB upgrade

I have used the modulator as a base, I used double sided tacky tape to mount it on the modulator. Works nicely and the tacky tape works perfect as isolation. Together with the Sophia RGB upgrade, it all fits nicely in the small case. I had to modify the case a little bit to mount the RGB output for ...

Re: Atari 800XL: Ultimate 1MB upgrade

I have one too, crammed into a 600XL :mrgreen: I really like the compact design of the 600XL. It started out as a 16Kb machine, all dirty and neglected. Cleaned it up, upgraded it’s RAM to 64kb, ripped out the rusty shield and fitted the Ultimate 1mb. It also has a Sophia RGB modification, crystal c...
