Re: TOS after 32 years - what could be done better ?

I already said what is the point. Basically just talking about. If that's not OK for you, you know what to do ... :D There is lot of Atari people convinced how TOS is something superior, how DRI was robbed by Bill Gates and other conspiracy theories. I don't think so. I remember some reviews in maga...

Re: TOS after 32 years - what could be done better ?

I just don't like that general "great job" opinion. I like to go in details. This thread is not about being constructive, but about being realistic toward our beloved, and yet flawed machine(s). Here is that EmuTOS incompat. list: https://github.com/emutos/emutos/blob/master/doc/incompatible.txt Exp...

Re: TOS after 32 years - what could be done better ?

Arf, I think that you did not get it . This is not 'time machine' kind, not even remotely related with having single or 2 sided floppy drive. This is about simple things what authors of TOS just could do better in that time, with given limitations of ROM space. My list is short, and surely can add a...

Re: Disk On Modules and Falcon. Questions.

IDE-Flash is same as DOM, but with case. Old solution.
Good CF=Sandisk. Never had problems on Falcon. But may be that what offer online cheap is just 'Sandisk' .

Re: Hard disk storage media

There are over 3 billion smartphones and tablets around. Practically all of it has SD card slot. They have micro USB conn. too, but it works with Pen drives mostly only on tablets and on more expensive phones. SD card is cheaper for manufacturing. I bought year ago 16GB microSD with 2 adapters - for...

Re: Hard disk storage media

Considering USB device support: USB is really not for our oldies - as may see, even TT is slow for it. I was thinking about making some adapter, based on some old, cheap, on CPU bus attachable USB chip. But that would need not simple SW, and as said, it would load CPU of Atari a lot. If there is on ...

Re: Hard disk storage media

IDE-SD solution may be currently the cheapest one. I use it in Falcon, and works fine. I did not use IDE to USB, but somehow I don't think that it should need CPU assistance at all on ST side. I mean, adapter self should do the polling - if adapter is made wisely. That 5500 KB/sec is of course on TT...

Re: Hard disk storage media

I have 128MB transcend IDE Flash, bought some 12 years ago - still operational. May be that those modules are better choice, and that ATA timing is better for our oldies. Someone should try them :D Need to look who sells it online ... With CF cards, I say usually: Sandisk is best choice. May be cost...
