Re: Inexpensive RTC just wire in?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I seem to remember some years ago reading that the date and time functions on the ST were handled by the keyboard controller IC and there was a mod which essentially strapped a battery to this IC to hold its state after the machine was powered off. Not the most elegant ...

Re: TOS: Now and When

Very new to Atari workings so please pardon this most basic question: for a hardware reference for the ST; I already have the Abacus / Becker Atari ST Internals . Is there another one that anyone could recommend? Atari ST/TT Profibuch (in German) and Atari Compendium (English) and Scheibenkleister ...

Re: Cloning an Atari CF card on a Mac

Let's say I've created a nice Compact Flash "hard drive" for my ST (connected via an IDE-CF adapter to a MonSTer board) and want to back it up. Or rather clone it as I want the AUTO programs to go in the exact same order as I put them (I use AUTOsort a lot for this sort of thing when the ...

Re: STFM to DVI/HDMI project

I've interfaced my 1040STFM to a Cyclone-II FPGA through the shifter socket in order to generate TMDS signalling. The result is a purely digital signal path from ST to DVI or HDMI monitor/TV. Marvellous project! Very cool. I hope the excitement in the audience won’t lead to understandable requests ...

Yes, it will do ST low (320×200, plus borders) or ST med (640×200, plus borders). Or more, with Lacescan or Overscan.

Well, that’s ~200€ (without inflation), and it included the AJAX, the kit, a floppy drive, a disk and the software. That’s not that expensive, I’d say.
