This morning my BBS computer crashed. Well... the ramdisk...
Then I picked another Atari from my good working stack, and after a few hours... same happened.
In my room it is due to hot weather around 38-40 degrees celcius (around 100-104Fahrenheid)
Is there any chance that these higher temperatures are causing trouble with my atari's.
They are moderately modded ... so I can imagine the heat from the components has a harder time leaving the machine.
I remember now. My BBS software crashed, the computer crashed, but it was the Rana that was overheating causing the crash. You have a real drive, floppy or hd, probably a floppy?
I had four floppy drives stacked on top of each other. The fan cured it. I put a desk fan blowing on the setup and mounted a 4 1/2 inch (11 cm) fan in a hole I made in the back of the desk.
I was running MPP AMIS on a MPP 300 baud modem. That would be about 1985. Remember baud rate went up about yearly, 300, then 1200, then 2400, then it jumped to 9600 or 14,400
28K and finally about 56K baud for several years before DSL/cable. At 300 baud, it took about 30 minutes to down/up load a 30K file. It would usually get to the last 1K and disconnect,
so you had to start all over. X-modem, Y-modem G, Zmodem.
