My most used program on the atari if indeed CAF

Im happy to say that the CT63 has always been 100% great with CAF, and even when I was having issues with the CT63, the one program that did run great was CAF.

Still does and even with the CTPCI and running any rez I care to, the one app that is still not lettign me down, is...CAF... Even at 1600x1280 and thats a stupid rez to run CAF in, but it does it.

I hav a CTPCI but I think I wont bother with it. It was fun for the few days that it did work but I just cannot get MiNT or Magic to wok with it, I cannot even get it to boot in anythign above v1.4 and so, unless somethign major happens, Im giving up to save my sanity.

On to the lights thing.
Well, the Atari cases are not see through anyway, so putting lights on wont make any difference at all to seeing if anythign flashes? Thats a silly reason to avoid them.
But, any reason is valid one I suppose.

My TT is currently mat-black with red FANS at teh back, and a couple of red neons strategically placed. All seals are just that... Sealed, to stop any and all light from escaping out of where I dont want it to, and a few holes have been added in palces that I do.

End result is that it looks great, especially in low light.

More PCs than PC World has... Probably

I suppose it will definitely looks great....
My main PC, a DIY job, I had a neon fan in the PSU. I didn't even know it when I bought it (along with mobo, cpu etc).
Only when I assembled it and plug it in, totally surprised by it... in a good way... because looks cool. :mrgreen:

It is a 14Mbyte SIMM adapter made by DJBase

http://www.atariworld.org/hardware/atlantis/

Not bad but they don't fit with the metal sheilding in place and they don't work with some 16Mbyte SIMMs. They only work with ones which use 4Mx4 DRAM chips and not (the more common?) 2Mx8 ones.

Well, whatever drawback it may have, since I'm not going to have any shielding and the correct RAM strip, I'm happy DJBase made it and sold it to the previous owner :lol:

But yeah, it's the red one and now I also have a green one with 4 ram strips, an MF-030 by Atin.. It just fell in my lap somehow... :D

maybe of interest to some but i know of an original Soundpool 19" green rack case available which has the extra holes on the back for the FDI and audio in/outs

sadly can't find a picture anywhere on the web

it's unbadged and brand new / boxed

not sure of a price yet but it won't be less than £100

if anyone has a picture of this would be great.. :)
