Salute!

Postby EddyDeegan » Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:23 pm

42 year old 68000 assembly freak here. I implemented an unreleased project called 'Libix' which is a pure 68k assembly language shell+GUI menu system that I wrote for the ST as a Minix environment clone for my degree dissertation in 1991, plus a number of unreleased demo routines doing the normal scroller/disty things. I drooled over Cuddly, I gawked at B.I.G. and I felt for TCB when I saw the Union, (even though retrospectively it's obvious that TCB were untouchable because they were the first to take it all to the level that TEX pointed towards). I've been lurking this forum for the last 5+ years ... but, for whatever reason I feel obliged to say:

"Thank you."

To all of you awkward teenagers, crazy drunkards, long haired hippies, gawky youngsters and eager geeks who were my age at the time, and who strode out there, made and distributed the code that made me realise that anything was possible.

I've made a career out of the inspirations that were boosted so much by the ST after being sparked off by the Speccy.

Again, thank you. You rock :-)

A nice first post - especially after so much lurking :)

Welcome (officially) aboard :)
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Lol, a long time in replying but thanks guys!

I just posted a post to this forum with 4 disk images attached to it. Assuming it gets approved by mods, then you are welcome to check out some of my early attempts at doing 'demo' type code. It's nothing earth shattering, but it's original, comes with full source and has never seen the light of day until now :-)
