List of currently manufactured/available add-ons for Ataris

Post by ppera »

This is attempt to make some things more clear for forum members and visitors.

Don't write here about what is on E-bay, what is on sites where nobody responds to mails and similar. Only living projects, orderable. Buyable in MediaMarkt :lol: .

I know about: NETUS-Bee
PeST
There are some floppy emulators announced, but I don't know are them orderable now.
Satandisk is not available at moment (?)

It would be good if people which bought items could write some impressions, features...

tuxie from atari-home.de is going to produce a batch of Eiffel 3 interfaces. He's currently redesigning the board and will announce when he's going to get the PCBs etched.
Same goes for a HD floppy module (just needs to be etched).

Can I haz hardware?

Correction:

NetUS Bee is not under production - it waits for someone. Docs are published for free.
This surprises me a bit. Is count of interested people so low? Or it was too expensive? Or lack of drivers, especially USB ones?

I see many demands for diverse HW add-ons, but it looks that when we have something, it is not good enough...
What is wrong here?

65 pounds for a NetusBee is quite expensive in my eyes, when you can build your own EtherNEC for roughly 15 pounds. The USB ports are definitely a nice gimmick, but nothing more than that.

Still a few pcbs left. I do not plan a new pcb run. Though when I have time I will make the files public. I am not sure if I still have the pcb design files but there is a clear image of them on my site. Diagrams etc will be put up online hopefully in the new year.

I will add that the PeST I bought from Techie Alison was and still is just the job 8O
Does exactly what it is designed to do, you plug in your USB mouse and it works perfectly with your (Mega)ST(E) :)
Plus, I got a nice hand written "with regards" note from Aly signed with a kissy, which I will treasure forever Yellow_Colorz_PDT_08

It's purely a time thing, it takes me quite a bit of time to manufacture NETUS-Bee, and I have important things like Univeristy to concentrate on.

Demand is there, of course you can make etherNEC for little, but try finding bulk of ISA network cards with RTL8019AS onboard.

Perhaps if I was to get them soldered at a manufactures it would save a lot of time, but I've never done this before and I don't know if they do small runs like that. It gets pretty boring hand soldering stuff.

Gee, I hope you don't mean me :oops:

I read Ppera's request and I quote:
ppera wrote:It would be good if people which bought items could write some impressions, features...


I took this to mean that I could comment on the piece of hardware that I had bought, but you surely know this, but just in case.. :wink: see I am English and as such am not that good with other more common variants of the Language.

However I do concede that my tale about the nice hand written letter was not entirely on topic so if you are a moderator Shockwav3 then I apologize, otherwise - kiss my arse! (and that's swearing in case you misunderstood that too) :D

Now that's cleared up I would like to commend you on that pic of that fine lady with the ST and I must agree that those are not Aly's, so who's are they? :P
And yes, it does indeed look like someone has already unloaded something, but on the ST strangely.... :?

Great thing you're not taking this personal Aly :)
But yes, I was targeting you, RetroLamerUK

But to stop the shitfest and get back on topic ... along with the Eiffel and HD Module, tuxie from atari-home is currently redesigning the Nemesis (Falcon bus speeder), along with the clockpatch and a simple, optional CPU speeder like an improved version of the Skunk/BlowUp all on 1 board. I have seen a 3d rendering of the first revision (which doesn't include the speeder yet), so it should be ready in the next 3 months.

Glad to know I'm not paranoid :o thanks for the recognition :wink:
I just realized where you got that photo from Shockwav3, I came across one just like it in a calendar recently on a visit to my old mate Muguk in Warrington, England, UK.
He claimed to have got it from one of his trips to mainland Europe, I forget which, anyway, it was definitely the sort of calendar one would hang either in the workshop, toilet or office :)

Yeah anyway, back on topic, so them PeSTs are the dog's [smilie=greencolorz4_pdt_12.gif]

Hmmm .. wondering whether to mod this thread or not. Teach me to be half-awake when pictures of semi-naked ladies are posted.


And that calendar is genuine .. was bought from the Evoke festival back in September or so this year. Well worth the 10Euros (as Retrogamer can testify!).

No way ... some of the girls shown aren't the prettiest and the 2006 edition definitely didn't feature any atari machines :(
The 2008 edition seems to feature better models, yet once again 4 commodore and some obscure machines and no atari :(

It passed the Retrogamer first test (there was semi-clad ladies) but failed the next one (they kept stuff covered up) ;-)
