remember that word, 'Enduser'?

 

haha

 

well my 520ST mysteriously STARTED working again, and that by itself after being

closeted for a few days.  I found that if i insert a floppy just the right way

it actually works.

 

no need to recap the capacitors either.

 

and so my 1040STF just arrived yesterday (thanks Bruce of B&C!)

and works great!

 

I got Cubase Lite running from Lotharek harddrive with a Yamaha

Midi keyboard noodling around.

 

Oh and by the way has anybody heard of a game called "Backlash"

- it is excellent early FPS (first person shooter) 3D I believe true

3D also.  Very smooth and well done all around.

 

Also rhyming with 'Backlash' is "Bugbash" an excellent sideview

scroller shootem'up.

 

Both these games came on the Lotharek HDD.

 

I think that's it for now.

 

thanks a lot everybody

How long did you have to wait for your 1040STF, I tried ordering a STE from him but he seems to be swamped with orders all the time, I gave up and bought a 1040STF off Ebay. I really would like to get a TT someday from Bruce but he told me he has people waiting over a year for them.

Seems like a good guy with lots of inventory but not enough time to meet the worlds demand.

I tried ordering in January, cancelled in November.
I didn't even know about his business until about a year ago, I just recently started to get interested in reacquiring the old computers
I used to own, or always wanted.
I may try ordering something again next year, he told me he wants to retire and I don't want to wait too long.
I put off ordering some software from Bravo Sierra while waiting for my Atari and now his website is gone.
