Re: Forum "slogan" update ?

I'd also be interested in purchasing a copy of your driver. Do I just send you an email?
Yes, and I will send it via e-mail too.

Re: TOS startup sequence.

Something I noticed during latest TOS 1.04 improving (faster boot, GEM state saves) : Stays for 1.04 and 1.62. RAM test executes very fast - under half sec, even with 4 MB RAM.

Re: Determined to add internal IDE to my STFM

I'm sure you will solve placement of it in good way. Usual problem with IDE in old computers in last years is: what CF cards are good for. What disk or CF card, maybe some IDE/SD adapter you plan to use ? Lot of CF cards may have writing problems, what is caused by not really proper signal timings o...
