Re: STinG driver (TCP/IP networking for TOS) for USB2LAN adapters

Just to clarify for other readers: with the NetUSBee you're using the network part, USB is not involved at all. Considering that with the USB2LAN data on the other hand has to be transferred via USB, this is still quite fast, imho! Also, how did you measure the NetUSBee speed? Unter TOS+STinG, I us...

Re: STinG driver (TCP/IP networking for TOS) for USB2LAN adapters

ow...That's about just about half the speed of NetUSBee... may be the TT CPU needs boasting ( is that the project next on the list???).

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

One last thing - I think that the PHWeather location saves when I input it on my Falcon, but the location is not saving with beePi. Suggest that you do an exit and reopen it again, rather than forcing it to save when you shutdown Aranym. My guess is the disk may not be flushed during shutdown or so...

Re: Amikit style blob/OS for Atari?

Not sure if the SD card from USD can be used directly on a cheapo SD-IDE adapter that you can get from China for less then US$5 including shipping.
If it's possible, then just connect SD-IDE you your Falcon.... just another method to skin something. :coffe:

Re: Amikit style blob/OS for Atari?

I am actually a Linux administrator professionally, so my go to on the Falcon is to load up bash to trouble shoot things. This is where an 80Mhz 060 us truly much mire usable than a 16mhz 030! Ok then I don't blame you. You just need to step back and see it from the Mint way of doing things.... .

Jinnee is another one, for those that use it. I found a copy of that in the massive archive out there that was on HD MSA files, and Hatari couldn't read them in natively. I had to create a blank disk image, and use JayMSA to extract them. I know Hatari handles MSA files normally, but thought it odd...
