Greetings from Sweden!

Post by agranlund » Tue Sep 17, 2019 5:30 pm


I recently discovered my old Atari 520ST from my childhood and decided on a whim to see if it still worked (it did!).
Don't think I've touched an Atari since sometime in the the early 90's so it's great fun to use it again! And nice to see that there is still an Atari community around!

I'm a programmer at profession so I rarely do much programming at home. When I do, it's usually for some older system. There is something special about the relative simplicity of the 8 and 16 bit machines. I have a particular fondness of the Nintendo Gameboy since that's the console I started my career on, many years ago..
I never did much programming on Atari so I'm thinking I'll have a go at that at some point but for now I'm having fun with the hardware side of things. I occasionally enjoy tinkering with and learning hardware when time allows, although I consider myself nothing more than a happy amateur.

Happy to have found this forum, and the Exxos store of course!

I too never had an Atari back in the day, so making up for it now too.

Enjoy :dualthumbup:

Snart tar vi över.
A kludge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain.
