Re: Argh! My new STE may have a DMA issue...

I understand exxos frustration with this subject. Because there WERE some DMA problems when the STes were first launched and I remember because I had my STe soon after, was a subscriber to several magazines and it was (unfortunately) widely reported. It was reported by ST format. They seemed to hav...

Re: STE BAD RAM (not bad simms)

exxos, maybe the IC is giving problems due to heat generation. i´ve encountered some PCs who gave memory errors and then i found the northbridge was heating up and causing the errors. putting a fan solved the problema (at least at the time). i can loan you a FLIR ONE camera if you want. it´s really ...

Re: Falcon first steps... (semi)-old Atarian with (semi)-old Atari

After going through about 50 floppies on the PC that would not format, finally one worked and I copied the Falcon system disk to it. But the Falcon wouldn't read it, so I guess I'm off to find a compatible drive... I remember reading about older is better and the need for jumpers to be present to se...

It´s something that sometimes is confusing for me to watch, when sometimes people complain that it takes a long time to receive hardware mods that are being made for 20 or 30 years old computers! please support our developers when they still exist. I totally agree on that. Come on guys, I mean I do...
