Re: About me & my pumpkin

Welcome fellow german Atarian ;)

I am originally from Stadthagen, which is roughly 60km from Hannover, now living in the Area of Brunswick :)

I believe you will find the community here not only very competent and productive but also very friendly, so no doubt you will feel welcome.

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...

Re: Gidday from Canada eh?

Welcome!

Ahh, RemoteAcess, that brings back memories... I used to run a small BBS for our local computer club back in the day. We even had ambitions to set up a regional board network similar to Fido-Net, but it never took off. I wonder if there is still a backup of it somewhere...

Re: Plan for 2019

Yes, I need to rest my hands more as well.. Voice-rec helps a lot, but when doing 100s of emails each day, the manual corrections I have to do really add up as well. Being in pain constantly isn't really helping with the "fun" side to it all.. I really need to take a few weeks off :roll: <mother mo...

Re: Should some old computer do all (same) as some new ?

I can recommend Atari Profibuch - if you can find book self somewhere, that would be great, but there are scanned PDF copies online too. Second that. The latest one is the 11th edition from 1992, as far as I know. Funnily one of the first google search result is: http://dev-docs.exxoshost.co.uk/ATA...

Re: Should some old computer do all (same) as some new ?

I believe that part of the fun is, that it really leads nowhere. Sometimes things happen, just because someone wants to do it. Maybe because he wants to prove to himself or to others, that it is possible. Or maybe to just want to learn something. Making sense of it is often a tasks that comes later,...

Re: Plan for 2019

Yes, I believe this is the best route to go. And this is coming from someone, who's solely 16 Bit Atari is a STE ;) I said it a couple of times before: We would all very much prefer a little less of a motivated and healthy Chris than have you burned out and not beeing able to use your hands any more...
