Hello from norway
I started with atari when I went at the vocational school in 1982 where I buy my first atari 2600 game machine. Later in the summer of 1984 I shopped my first commodore 64. Still have it standing in a closet and works well after 33 years. In August 1990 I bought my first Atari ste worked fine for many years. Offered in 2004 to buy 2 pieces atari ste from seller in Norway that has been used in a school.
Inserted Analogic STE TOS Switcher in the one I bought and had to throw motherboard in the trashcan as rom sockets was to wide after analogue STE TOS Switcher which some years later became defective. Purchased new disk drive from best electronics in 2005 when it who stood in my first atari ste was worn out. Also bought from best electronics analogue STE TOS Switcher which some years later became defective, got 4 bombs during startup computer.
In 2009 I bought 2 pieces ultrasatan and later in 2010 an additional atari ste from atarifreakz with dma circuit C398739-001. I use most atari to play games and other things. Also i have deluxe paint that I have used some time and 3D construction kit and other graphics programs.

Note 2: The Atari 2600 heavy sixer in picture is shopped from best electronics.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Externes-Flopp
