Hi everyone

Post by Vyper68 » Sun Mar 31, 2019 8:51 am

Hi
My name is Richie, I just wanted to say hello to everyone and tell you a little about my collection. I am a lifelong Atari nut and collector. I have recently been given a 520STFM which instantly brought back happy memories. I started out with like many others, a VCS and then a bit later moved onto Atari 8-Bits and then onto ST’s owning STFM’s and later a STe. Sadly I never owned a Falcon, I had to make do with an A1200 with a Blizzard 030 :D
So after a long gap I now have a 800XL and a 65XE again, the latter fitted with 512K and stereo POKEY, and now a nice 520STFM which as it turns out had a Marpet RAM expansion with 2MB fitted :D
I have become totally immersed in the ST again and this time I have been able to order a Blitter from Best and picked up another Two 1MB SIMMs on feeBay and now I am looking at the Boosters and other upgrades. So things are a bit different from the early 90’s and the things we can improve now are very interesting.

Welcome!!
Don't worry, I have a 68030/68882 A1200 with IDE2SD Adapter running OS3.9, and nobody has come for me yet ;)

Mind you, I do also have 7 STs and 2 STEs now, not to mention the 800XL and 65XE, so the balance is firmly in the direction of Atari :)
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...
