Re: Gotta get me some of these ...

Looks like a Supermicro quad CPU board in the background there. I could have widlerized a few of those over the years.

This bloke sounds like Ozzy Man reviews.....

Re: When you enjoy something as much as you remember it.

Seven Samurai meets the Waltons. :-) I still have the Ice Pirates video around somewhere. Follow it up with Space Balls for a complete experience. I had a staple diet of Battle of the Planets, Dukes of Hazzard, Buck Rogers and Battlestar Galactica when I was a kid. Happy days..... well, that too. :l...

Re: Stuff and Things.

I have a PC speed board lying around somewhere. Tempting. I do have a Falcon speed card too. PITA to get working but an nice curiosity.

Re: RJs Adventures in Mega land III

Wow, that is tight. I'll look into that again, I think. Cheers DoG.

The frame I picked up was original Atari. Sold as working, clearly not but I got it cheap so oh well. Same type of failure as my other MegaST and an older FM. Of the three I have, all stuffed. Low voltage under load.

Re: Top of the pile

With so many ST's I'm still recapping seemingly ad infinitum. Also taken on an A600 and Vampire for a mate which means I'm looking at recapping a couple of A500 PSU's too. It's getting right out of hand. I picked up another STE motherboard and PSU so I now have two in need of cases. Not sure how thi...

Re: RJs Adventures in Mega land III

Bugger. I've got a meanwell rd-65 I picked up while I was working at Jaycar last year. Its great but too big to fit in the Mega. The power connectors are the same between the ST and Mega. I just desoldered the AC side and badda bing. The Megafile frame is different again...... I guess I got lucky ge...

Re: RJs Adventures in Mega land III

I'm going to have to do that with my spare MegaST and MegaSTE. I've been sidetracked recapping PSU's and repairing STE boards for the last few weeks. What I did find was that MegaST PSU's seem to be the same PSU as ST's. Both mine had dodgy ASP's supplies and the one other ST I had with an ASP crapp...

Re: Its almost the end...

I had blocked the frog from my memory, even without playing it back I'm traumatised. Even in our hot weather it'll be single malt for me. God bless Scotland and Merry new year chaps.

Viva Atari.
