My mate's daughter is called 'Ashleigh' but 'Ashley' is a boy's name - there are other names in English which can be used for both men & women. In French I'd be Michel and over here 'Michelle' (as you'd pronounce it) is a girl's name :)
Having sold 99.9% of my 1300+ collection of originals, I'm taking a bit of a back seat on the forum. I'll still do the front-of-house admin tasks as and when they're required but, for now, I'm enjoying my Xbox 360 time too much :)

Google search for ashley +site:wikipedia.org
You can see a few male English footballers named Ashley, and quite a few female Ashleys from the USA (presumably this is where it's more often used for females, then).

And now here's Maartau from the back (I had a great party at home for my out of jail :lol: ).

I'm older than my Dad himself, completly psychotic, a bit alcoholic & drug abuser : I know everything what you can find on Earth [ahem, I'm the king :angel: ].

... jail wasn't the solution : sometimes I stay at day hospital for my dope.

I haven't killed anybody for the moment, but have a strong pulsion for it : I HATE SOCIETY !!!

Ello.
Im Martin i have only just got an atari it is a 520st upgraded to 1mb, as of yet i have no software at all for it. I am interested in putting it to as much use as possible including word processing and dtp, and fingers crossed a tiny bit of surfing. (Fingers crossed)
My other main interest is classic cars and i am currently restoring an austin maxi.
I cannot upload pictures yet as all my web access is by wap/gprs
See ya round im off to read as many of the old posts as i can.

Welcome aboard :)

For surfing with an ST you will need at least 4Mb and a harddisk.
1Mb might be sufficient for FTP and Email but certainly not for CAB as the TCP stack takes too much memory to let CAB function properly.

HI!

On a whim a week ago I posted a wanted message on freecycle for an Atari ST computer and got a reply from an awsome dude named Peter who gave me his dusty old Atari 520ST^M w/ floppy drive, monochrome monitor, and software. So I finally have a reason to use my account here on the forums.

My name is Matt, I turned 25 on August 12th, and I'm horribly obsessed with all things classic video gameing and computers... or at least that's what my family would say i fyou asked them about it. I just call it a "hobby"..... It has oddly leaked into music as I've not only got classic computers and video games, but I've got movies on both CED and LaserDisk as well as an automatic turn table and a collection of records.

I'm now collecting for:

Atari 8-bit
Atari ST
Apple II
Apple IIgs
Old Mac OS, both 68K and PPC
MS DOS/Win 3.1.1
Commodore64 and 128
Amiga
TI 99/4a
TurboGraphx16/CD
Magnavox Odyssey^2
Sega Genesis/CD/32X
Dreamcast
SNES
GameCube
Intellivision
PSX
Sega Saturn
Nintendo64
Atari 2600
7800
5200
Sega Master System
Atari Lynx
Sega Game Gear
Nintendo Game Boy, GameBoy Color, and GameBoy Advance...

I use Mac OS X and my current game systems are the Nintendo DS and Wii.

...did I mention I also play games on these things? That and I expand on the computers were possible.. I don't *just* collect them.

Probably my most beefed up comptuer is my Apple IIgs, it's got SCSI 350MB hard drive and CD ROM, 8MB of RAM, 6 floppy drives, ethernet, a modem, Apple ImageWriter II, and oh... a Transwarp GS accelerator... which will... when it gets back late next week from Reactive Micro... be running at 18.75Mhz(stock IIgs runs at 2.5Mhz)... 10.75Mhz faster than when I sent it in just over a week ago.

I look forward to seeing what I can do with my new to me Atari ST.

Hi guys,

I thought it would be good to add myself here as I have already stuck a few posts elsewhere, but nothing about me really.

Name: Mark Jervis
Age: 39 :? but they do say your only as old as (the woman) your feeling, so in that case im only 27 :lol: :cheers:
Location: Cleethorpes (north East on the south side of the Humber)

Married with 2 kids

Originally got a 520STFM for my 18th birthday and enjoyed the games, but soon decieded to have a bash with graphics and coding.
As in my other post, I wrote a game in 68000 which looks like its sadly lost forever, BUT!!! i'm having a go again and rewriting a new version which hopefully will be better than the original.

Sadly in a moment of madness sold my ST which had since been upgraded to 1meg and had a 20 meg hard drive for it too! (even sprayed the ST to graphite grey and looked COOL!) when I moved to Hong Kong.

Luckily, just recently got given a 4 meg STFM from the father in law, so that really boosted my interest again in the ST scene.

Currently out of work, but have done allsorts over the years, web design, worked in a games company doing some graphics for MAC games (sorry! lol) and also a fair bit of 3D work for various places including CGI work for an S4C program called Ar@chnid in 2000 which was cool as parts of my work were used in the title sequences and also a still was used on the huge advertising posters that scatter towns etc.

So inbetween finding a job (oh such fun!) and family stuff, im loving getting back into the coding on the ST again.

Mark.

After couple years here, I discovered this 'obligation' :D

So, personally, I'm totally unintersting, boring person. I don't have fancy car, fancy closes, suits or fancy apartman.
Don't ask my age - not a pleseant subject :D

Made some SW for Atari users, as Floppy Imager, Drive Imager - for Windows and Linux.
Atari SW, made by me is listed here: http://www.ppest.org/atari/ppastsw.html

Hi all!

My name is Tobias and I live in q quite small town in Sweden. I work with technical illustrations and 3D animations. My first computer was a SVI 728 MSX, then an MSX 2. After that I moved over to ATARI and bought myself an 520STFM, 1040STFM, 1040STE, Atari Falcon. I have been involved in two demo/software projects called TCC (The Crap Crew) Believe me we were really crappy ;) and Slime soft. We released a textbased andventure, some shootemups and a point and click adv. plus some demo screens and a megademo, all done in STOS and Hisoft basic2. I mostly made Graphix but also coded basic and some simple asm. I also go under the name Animator75 (I was born in 1975) And ACC:Xess. I have recently released a remix cd with ST music, you can listen to it at http://www.c64audio.com, the cd is called "Behind the Square".. I have a myspace page http://www.myspace.com/accxess where you can listen to various tunes I have made, one remix of Thermostatics "The Box" where I use only squarewaves :) (since I love those) exept for the drums. I also have a webpage http://www.accxess.se, please visit and write in my guestbook. I am also a member of an EBM band called TraKKtoR, http://www.myspace.com/trakktor. I also collect vintage videogames and computers... When it comes to music I listen to almost everything electronic, but my housegods are Front242, Covenant and Jean-michel Jarre. I think I will settle for this..... Oh, and I have an Atari logo tatooed on my right shoulder :) Please ask if you wonder about anything :)
Best regards
/Tobias

Well, ehum.. It's function keys and some keys on the neck send midi messages, at this moment there is trashed M-audio midi keyboard built into it. We are trying to encode the ST keyboard and using a PIC cpu to transform the keycodes into midi messages, so that the keyboard will work as in a tracker program. But getting some data from the keyboard and encoding it turned out to be harder than we thought.. At first we had a busted keyboard, and for 3 days we had our eyes glued at the oscilloscope wondering why nothing happened, Now I have a new keyboard and we will try again. :)

Hi there ppl !

A true beauty huh ? As I am an Amiga guy, I don't know the peculiarities of this system very well so I'll have lots of questions. Please bear with me and don't get pissed if I talk about Amiga too much :mrgreen:

cheers ! :cheers:

LOL ! maybe I should submit it to a engrish site ?

But I thought this unit was made in US. Isn't it ? It looks like a regular north american unit. Or is there some sinister plot at work here ?

Edit : Ah, it's made in China.
