It does mean that everyone might be running these fans "backwards". I need to look at how I connected mine.
I've been wondering about the same. So what is the original direction? Is the fan sucking new air in or blowing hot air out?

Re: MSTE PSU has 25V cap instead of 10V - safe to replace?

I do try to list caps in my store which reflect what's in the actual kit, though things can change batch to batch so looks like I just didn't list the caps in that kit at all due to the constant changes of parts. This is totally OK. I was just wondering what was the reason and if this is the reason...

Re: MSTE PSU has 25V cap instead of 10V - safe to replace?

Actually, I have a real report similar to this one. :) Exxos recap kit (0064) indicates that for C8 (25v/100uF) and C24 (25v/220uF) would be replaced by 50v/220uF. However my package contains still caps rated at 25V. I guess it's not a big deal, just curious why?

Re: How to: recapping the Mega STe power supply

What a great guide!

There is an error with C14 - it doesn't have + on the left on and - on the right but - on the top and + on the bottom.

Re: Ideas for my Atari / Raspberry Pi Project

You can hack a similar IKBD injector as CosmosEx uses and actually rip off its firmware which handles IKBD packets. :)

Re: Atari TT030 Revision Guide

Really nice overview! It helped me a lot with identifying my TT - Rev.J from 08/92 (happy to realise that, of course!)

Re: Early 520ST keyboards different?

Where is the mouse and joystick port? The keyboard connector is usually 7 lines(8 pin connector). The original ST and STM, which didn't have an internal floppy, didn't have the joystick ports on the keyboard, they were on the main circuit board on the right of the machine. IMO that makes them very ...
