Morning All

Post by rubber_jonnie » Sun Aug 27, 2017 9:29 am

I'm Jon from the UK, and I'm a bit of a retro collector.

I have a collection ranging from a ZX81, to pride of place, which is my much modified 4160 STe, that rose from the ashes of at least 4 dead ST's, and now sports the 32Mhz booster and TOS switcher from exxos, an internal CosmosEx from Jookie and an internal real time clock based on the ForgetMeClock II, which I helped to design and build with the help of a number of good folks from the community, and which exxos has produed the PCB for.

Not sure how it came to be that I ended up focusing on the ST so much, but I'm glad I did, as it's a really rich community, long liv the ST and all it's bretheren! :D
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ultimate 1MB, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k +APE Warp) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg), 1040STF long button floppy, 2x 1040 STFMs + Gotek, 2x 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher, Mega ST1, Mega ST4, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...

Welcome, fellow collector :)

Yes I know how it goes with the Atari... My first was a 130XE, the 1040STE I have know is in fact my first own ST ever. I had a 1040STFM as a loan from a friend then, but I only used it for my beloved Carrier Command :) Specs-wise my Amiga 1200 clearly is the "better" machine, but I still love the STE more... that's why I am so keen to find a way to get exxos booster running in it ;)

Hmm maybe a collection-show-off thread with pics would be nice...
