Re: Anyone used Transferwise?

Heard about it before, the fees especially for large amounts are much lower than PayPal.
Several "internet friends" have used it before to send and receive money.

Re: connecting atari falcon to portfolio

This was a very long time ago (15+ years) but on my TT I used a software to make backups using the interface.
The files in the folder are FOLITRAN.PRG and FOLITRAN.RSC, so you can maybe guess a name from there.

Re: Discovery Cartridge mystery addon device

I had an external drive with track display from "Golden Image", which was distributed by DATEL so it might be the exact same drive.
It stopped working some 10 years ago or so and thus is no longer with me. Was a nice toy and worked fine for 15+ years.

Re: Advertising Atari with sexy girls.

I find this entire thread sinister. I see no problem in posting vintage ads where hot girls are used to sell products. They did that 30 years ago. What I *do* have problems with is people idolizing this TODAY. It has nothing to do with "political correctness" or "being offended"...

Re: Advertising Atari with sexy girls.

Not really an ad, but a sexy girl in an Atari Falcon swimsuit.
Is she underage? Probably not.
Did she give consent? We will never know.
Do we care? Pfffffffft!

Re: Atari 520/1040 ST F/FM/E repro boxes - In the making

I bought a few NEW ST's back in the 80's and 90's, and none of them came with a boxed mouse.
IIRC, the mouse was in a plastic bag inside a larger undecorated box that also contained the
manuals, floppy disks and cables.

Re: TT and monitor stand

I had a quite heavy (certainly more than 8kg iirc) EIZO F57 17" CRT standing on top of my TT for 5 years or longer.
There were no problems or defects at all. The case was more or less designed to have a monitor standing on it.
Plus it also looks pretty good this way. But that is just my opinion.

I have an original french 1040 STF box - just the empty box, no insides.
Shipping will likely be a pain, depending on your location.

Re: Easiest way to get high speed serial on Mega STe?

It has been a very long time for me, but I used a terminal software called "Rufus" on my MegaSTE, together with HSModem package, and I was using my U.S. Robotics modem @ speeds of either 38400bps or 57600bps. Might have even worked at higher settings. I was using the serial port on the slo...

Gauntlet II for me, especially in multi-player mode.

I guess we can finally say, that the Kickstarter campaign which was supposed to start for Volume 2 today will fail. Because nobody out there seemed to liked the book. That saves me $60 I guess...

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

I remember Son Shu Shi from back in the day.
I liked the game, and wanted to complete it, but it was impossible because the crack is bad.
So was this ever fixed?!

Re: 1040STe and SC1435....

I originally owned the versatile Philips CM8833 - but when I saw the new SC1435 at my friends place, I was interested to buy it immediately. And I never regret it til this day, it's still happily working. The 8833 got into some problems years ago, and I had to recycle it at some point.
