Re: My new 130XE

75"... one Atari pixel will probably have the size of a lego brick :-P

I am sticking to my 19" NEC Multisync. I recently discovered, that the panel is 50Hz capable, so no more jerky scrolling :)

Re: Quadruple Your Internet Speed for Free..

I don't think that transfer speed has much with ping. Yes you're right, bandwidth has not much to to do with latency. In my experience, fibre infrastructure is in many cases more recent, which means newer and faster routers with lower latency. So even if if the ammount of hops is identical you can ...

Re: Quadruple Your Internet Speed for Free..

FTTH is sad story here in germany, Telekom really wants to squeeze the last penny out of their copper infrastructure, so Fibre is nowhere to get or extremely expensive. At home I have VDSL with 50Mbit/sec, which is okay, and I hope that my provider upgrades to 100Mbit/sec soon. Ping to my server is ...

Re: My new 130XE

Svideo on my 130XE is pretty nice. The Svideo on my 800XL was okay, much better than on the 130XE. I use a Framemeister to upscale it, and the result was nice. But the quality of the VBXE RGB output was even better and I was curious about the additional features. So the 800XL is pretty much becomin...

Re: My new 130XE

However, you've made me want to also install Sophia, do you have a link to where I can buy one from, as I'm struggling to find it, thanks. It isn't available in a shop, but you can PM Simius at Atari Age and ask for one, it is around 66 EUR. There is also a RGB Variant, and you have to decide on th...

My new 130XE

Two weeks ago I was able to score a 130XE on ebay for under 60 EUR. This one is special to me, since it was my first ever (real) computer (not counting my Kosmos CP1). I was around 9 or 10 I believe, barely started learning english in school. I got my computer completely naked, only with power suppl...

Re: Gidday from Canada eh?

I mean Fidonet exists still of sorts, and there are several other nets as well specializing in certain kinds of discussions and file distribution. RetroNET for example deals with retrogaming/retrocomputers. Cool, did not know that. A reason more to get my serial interface for the 800XL done... and ...

Re: php upload scripts

Keep in mind to never give users unmoderated access to uploads. You could end up having child porn uploaded to your server and not noticing it until a cybercrime unit finds it... It is always advisable to have a separate inbox folder with write access only, and you having manually move it to a publi...
