Re: WANTED COSMOSEX

Hi Jookie, currently I'm not making devices as I'm somehow burned out from everything I did in the last few years... I'm considering to leave the making of devices to someone else, and the schematics and pcbs will be public soon. More info later. Real life, family and health ALWAYS first! Please tak...

This is the current schematic for the new STF design.
This still needs checking against the STFM schematic for mistakes.
Looks very cool. And I see, you´re also a friend of Eagle :)

Re: LIQUID RETROBRIGHT TEST ON MOUSE

Hi, Top part of the mouse socked in liquid peroxide. Left in sun light all day. I have this Retrobright stuff since years on my "to do" list, but never tried until now. Question: Do you leave the mouse all the time IN the fluid? And did you try it also with bigger parts? I saw ready-to-use "cream" f...

Re: Scope recommendation

Hi, Rigol DS1052E (50 MHz) - 321 € new (Amazon) Rigol DS1102E (100 MHz) - 339 € new (Amazon) Hantek DSO5102B (100 MHz) - 250€ new (Amazon) I would strongly recommend the Rigol DS1102E. The price difference between the "50 MHz" and "100 MHz" version are too less, and newer firmware versions prevent y...

Re: unknown ST Overscan circuit with 7400

Hi, For use noobs to extra resolutions, if there are software solutions, why is the hardware needed ? IMHO the hardware is only needed to enable the MMU to scan more than 32000 bytes video memory AND prevent the GLUE vom generating a bus error (2 bombs).

Re: A little bit of 8 Bit: 65XE upgrade to 128k RAM

Hi, Hoping nobody minds, especially since we are predominantly 16 Bit, but having just completed a successful upgrade of my 65XE from 64k to 128k, I know how difficult it was to source the parts, I wanted to share with everybody. Nice solution - well done! :goodpost: If you want... I make another so...

Re: My retro collection

Wow. I hope my wife never look to this pics from Ingo. My two desks are the complete opposite to that... cable over cable, dozens of PCBs flying around, dozens of projects, devices and so on... I gave up for a long time to order that constatly. I´m something like the organized maniac I think. If she...

Re: Fitting of a 34 pin standard FDD socket to an Atari ST

Hi, So I decided to go ahead and replace the fitted IDC connector with a socket and cable from a standard PC. That´s one of the first things I ever do in any Atari ST/STE with floppy inside :) Just for the records... why are you re-use the one from the PC mainboard? These connectors are easily to fi...
