About me & my pumpkin

Post by ari.tao » Wed Sep 19, 2018 2:59 am

Hi Lads,
beg your pardon for my bad accent, as I wasn´t using my English very much since 40 years, when I lived at Canterbury for one year as a postgrad at the University of Kent.

I am a german atari-freak, originated from Hannover, but now hosted at Karlsruhe since many years after my studies in physics, math. and computing. My first contact with the latter was with a really big machine, a CDC-1604a in 1966, but in 1986 I was very glad to have a thousend of it´s abilities just placed directly before my nose on my desk ´cause I happily owned my first Atari, a 520ST+, and started to program it using Modula2. So this addiction started...
Meanwhile I am retired and spending about a third of my time with playing chess and another third in polishing my various Ataris, ie. a Falcon (at ddd32MHz, BlowUp), a TT (with Thunder, Storm & CrazyDots GK) and some more. Since about two years now, I am involved in the German forum Atari-Home.de where you can find my contributions under the same nickname. Once upon a time there also was a few publications by me of zine articles and software. I have moderate experience with MAGX & MiNT, but not much in electronics.

I am joining in here in hope to get support for purchasing some of those goodies made by exxos and others, and may be to find some of the roots of TDI-M2 also.

Cheers, ari.tao
Falcon, TT & some more

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.
