For me, BBS'es were one of the most exciting expiriences when i got my ...

Re: A BIt of Advice Please

First of all, it would be really prefered if you could confirm that the output of the ST works properly. Could be tested with an original monitor, or compatible TV (RGB-SCART) or something like that. Then, it depends on your model. If you have a plain ST without RF Modulator, there is a composite sy...

Re: My retro computer blog

I must say, good work on the case. On my 520STm i also keep the case original on the outside. I just removed a bit of plastic inside the case to make room for IDE Cables, but that is not visible from the outside. On the other hand, i think personally i would not have done all the work and then put a...

5V rail... from the main cap near PSU connector directly (almost - via the factory choke coils) to Shifter, MMU and DMA, and I've added a 100nF cap under the Shifter.
Did that improove the quality?
I also have those vertical stripes on my 520 STm.

Re: Falcon H-sync fault

Might be a bad chip.
But, is there a pull-up somewhere in this signal path?

Re: Ideas about OS for 21-st Century

I think that linux can serve as a base for more variety. Because linux is not a system itself, but more like a framework. There are distros that focus on security like Beowulf, anonymity like Kali/Tails, gaming like SteamOS, also specialized versions for Enterprise, Servers, Workstations, whatever. ...

Re: 32Mhz oscillator "issue"

That's what I understood you were doing for power, didn't think you'd have a Rpi in there though. What's some good BBS these days?
One of the most active, and my personal favourite is the BlackICE BBS. Reachable at "blackice.bbsindex.de"
