Sorry.. been busy researching an important old/new project with fresh inspiring unexpected input... And dividing my time as usual.... No this project isn't Atari related but important to many- and perhaps might
finally be the end of 15years searching & experimentation. At least one person here may know what I'm talking about...Mr Shredder.
Don't worry, I'm still hanging around- but I have to get busy in the other part of my workshop, and start using the tools again. (plus call in a few favours) And set myself up for another new, expensive, unknown result- but done much differently. Ask me later what I'm doing... I still don't want / can't answer that- only a basic plan for now. (Now THATS a project/teaser..hehe, lets just say all this making of pcbs is practicing for something much different) Don't blame me, I'm obsessively compulsive when it comes to useful
open source hardware designs...maybe you've noticed.
In the past months, I achieved more than I expected with my ST, its faster, and running hardware I dreamed of years ago. (IDE, and finally again Overscan), Now I have my new mouse, and the improved TOS. Repairs to the machine have been successful.... Woot..
While I still have some unfinished plans, they might take longer than originally realised. I will continue to experiment.. but I don't want to hurt the old girl- cutting up much more of the motherboard!
The cpu will be swapped eventually, and I'll play with 32mhz operation. But not much else is really wanted. (Working MiNT would be nice, and perhaps internet via CAB for the fun of it)
The Sony drives are modified, tested, and ready to ship. Only four, and two are already spoken for. And enough HD kits to run them.
I'll post them out on Monday and look forward to how everything works out. Thats you Zack and Darklord....!
Forever yours, Sean.
PS. Again, I'm not leaving...just announcing my change of tack plans... This is normal for me, and great results like we have experienced- gives me momentum to do new things or retry old things in a fresh mind. I have lots of projects sitting on the boil, and the rare opportunity of time to achieve them. (I love my 'Boss' - an understanding individual who can afford me such privileges).
PPS. If I go quiet don't be too suprised. I'll let you know whats happening. Much luv.
