Re: Plan for 2019

One thing I can tell from personal experience: The more fun something is, the more likely I am willing to do it. And it is clearly more fun to work with good tools, have all parts accessible and be in a nice and comfortable environment. In return this means, I can understand and would even highly re...

Re: How to: recapping the Mega STe power supply

I've seen this debated in modding forums long and excessively ;) Of course you would need the hot air to go somewhere, so ideally I agree that you would have multiple fans establishing a defined air flow over the components. In that case, the direction of the airflow is probably unimportant, althoug...

Re: How to: recapping the Mega STe power supply

That's a strange one... Usually you would want the generated airstream to be as cool as possible, that's why you'd normally place a fan in a power supply, that sucks cool air in and blows at the components, at least to my (somewhat limited) knowledge...

Re: Terriblefire's new forum channel

Wow, this is awesome!

As having both Amiga and Atari ST, I am REALLY looking forward to what comes out of this. So yes: Welcome, Stephen!

Re: A good mouse mat lol

I did to, and what did google come up with?

Ah, so I got it the other way around. Funny, the brown one seems to be of much higher quality.
The brown ones seem to be from Preci-dip

Re: If you had only ONE Atari, what would it be?

My answer would be the Atari 800XL, since the 8-Bit Ataris were my first "love", and the 800XL is so much prettier than the later XE models. But since I believe, you were only talking about 16/32 Bit Machines, this is a little more tricky. I am a fan of the All-In-Keyboard form factor, so this would...

Re: FOR SALE STF/E KEYBOARDS (UK)

Actually, that's what I first thought as well. But no. It's actually residue from retrobrighting that causes that "fading". Get a green dishwashing sponge thingy and scrub a keycap and Bob's your Uncle. Can second that. Retrobright leaves some white residue that is actually not that easy to remove,...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

I'd say stick with the DVI, just to make sure. If size is a matter you can always go with MiniDVI or MicroDVI. In addition, DVI-I would allow you to output both analog and digital RGB on the same connector. DVI to HDMI Adaptors are cheap as chips, and could even be included, in my mind not worth the...
