Let me give you an example. I've got a CT60 in my Falcon, an Adspeed in my Mega ST4,
a 40mhz PAK 68/3 in my STacy, and a couple of Fast Tech boards I'm not even using.
So...when a new accelerator is advertised...well, I think you see the point here.
I have to admit to being drawn to a board with faster TOS and alt/fast RAM though.
On top of that, I'm familiar with Chris's work so I know it'll be quality...
I think I may have sent a couple of the last produced PeST's a while back also. Think I was sick of them lay around
PeST "look alikes" flooded the market towards the end of PeST sales. So that pretty much killed off the few remaining sales.
I do see your point though, its pointless for one producing PeST's when people can get the stuff cheaper. Though (thanks for saying Ron!) I do test the stuff I produce, always have. Almost every bit of tech stuff I buy (anything from toasters to microwaves you name it) is feking trash half the time. Stuff isn't tested properly and it annoys the hell out of me. So I want to produce stuff which actually works and works good. I remember Alison almost stopped talking to me during PeST development. I think it was when she had finished a BETA version of the code, and she was all happy about it, I said, the mouse doesn't move per single pixels, it actually jumped 4 pixels as a minimum. She hadn't even noticed it and she was happy to leave it that way. So I started patching the code myself and fixed it, Later after she had calmed down a bit, she agreed it needed fixing.. Then I found other bugs
In anycase, I decided to pull the plug on PeST and work on something which wasn't in mass production like CPU boosters. It is something I always wanted to do anyway. Rodolphe has been giving great input these past few months. He is doing great work with the PCB design, which is saving me a lot of work, its while he is doing that I have been able to fiddle with the blitter stuff. Today I have been working on the start of the 32mhz mod. Rodolphe mostly designs something, then I say we should change something.. So he does.. Then I say we should change it again.. So he does.. then I say we should change that, and she does.. and so far he is still talking to me.. (just, I think )
