Re: REV H1 information and interest

I'd be very interested in one as well...but I'm not sure my soldering skills are up to the job just yet. :roll:

Put me down for one to support the development and I'll hope to either improve my technique or find someone to help sort it. ;)

Re: Hello from the Netherlands

:welcomewave: Interesting experience with the SM124 - I've had two do basically the same thing now (power up fine one day but then fail a day or two later). Strangely, my SM125s (even the one I got with my 1040 STF back in 1987) are all fine & the System Solutions mono screen has also (so far) been ...

Re: I doubt anyone's interested, but...

Absolutely! A colleague is trying to resurrect an early version of Unix to run on a PDP 11. The source doesn't quite match the working binaries so he's trying to reverse engineer it. :?

Re: I doubt anyone's interested, but...

I think that's great news - I'm trying to resurrect my Falcon at the moment but if I get chance I will try & download it to run on my Mega 4 + Megafile 60...

Glad to hear your Atari's are back in operation again. :D

Self preservation...plus the risk of a massive list of jobs being created if she found out I was'playing' with my old computers

Re: FMNs blog / the latest things hes briken(fixed)

Will do. Keyboard is missing a couple of keys...but I managed to buy a reconditioned mega st keyboard a few months ago. :D
Hoping most of the rest of the kit is fully functional.
Might get started testing it all later tonight when the kids are in bed (and my wife as well).

Re: FMNs blog / the latest things hes briken(fixed)

Looking good. Just picked up a Mega ST4 with SM124 and a Megafile (plus some music software and Midex+) so once I've seen how much work it needs I might try and follow your lead as funds allow.

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

I thought that was normal on the Blitter, bigger question for me, I know nothing about Mega STs, are the roms the same? I've got 3x 1040 STFs (all with red LEDs and with long button floppy drives) & none of them have the holes for the blitter (and they all have 6x ROMs under the PSU with the RAM un...

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

Wow...absolutely fantastic idea... :excited: Over the last few weeks, I've finally managed to make time to go through my Atari collection & see what state things are in. From memory, the hoard comprises 1 x Falcon - internal HDD failed 3 x 1040 STFs: all 3 have red LEDs, two with 1024k & TOS 1.00, o...
