Re: exxos's webshop forcefully shutdown :(

Within Europe SEPA (IBAN) is reasonably quick and fee-less. Outside of Europe I'd propose an idea I've been mulling over for quite some time. Use Bitcoin. The transfers will go through immediately, and while it's somewhat of a hassle for the buyer to first acquire the bitcoin, we in the retro movem...

It worked on my old STFM with 1.4 IIRC. I used to use this to extract an SFX archive from one disk to a ramdisk, without copying it across first. Hold right click while double clicking a program in a background window, and it executes with the working directory of the foreground window. At least I t...

Medusa T40 for sale on eBay

There's a fancy sounding Medusa T40 for sale on eBay which is probably worth buying if you happen to be Bill Gates.

At the knockdown price of some €6,200 (including shipping) you'd be mad not to buy it right now!

Interesting story. I am not sure if the CPS-1/2 protection has something to do with this!? So you have stopped any further development then?

Re: Wi Fi Wireless LAN

That's the hard way. Had my TT030 and Hades on wireless years ago. Just get a simple wireless adapter, the kind used to get any old device on a wireless lan. Plugs into your existing ethernet port and no drivers needed. In fact the Atari won't even know its on wireless. Only catch is you have to co...

Re: Favourite Games!

One of the first ST games I ever played was Outrun, on my old mate Danny's STFM. The choice was between that, Vixen (only really notable for the sexy intro screen, at least for us 11-13 year old boys), Carrier Command, Stargoose and a few broken menus. Oh and STOS, I found the disk and booted it up,...

Re: Atari File Packer Contest

Speedpacker is a bit better, being a kind of LZ77 packer with huffman coding but doesn't quite understand how to build a huffmantree. Interesting! I'm amazed at the performance of the ARJ algorithms compared to what was state of the art back in the Atari days. I did many informal tests of the diffe...

I'll have to record from the ST directly, which is not possible today (show is tomorrow).

Awesome stuff Ernie! It sounds like professional coding in the 80s was a really exciting journey through all these different, eclectic machines, whereas now things are more settled and perhaps not as cool. What are you working on nowadays?
