I have a serial port WiFi modem on order so I will be able to call telnet bbses on my ST.

My question is this though. How do I go about getting TAZ? Do I need to get some sort of SD card reader?

Thanks,
Michael

Thanks for the reply.

How do I get Taz on a floppy?

If you have a PC with a 3.5" drive there's a program called Floppy Image that'll write .st disk files to an actual DS/DD 3.5" diskette. You can buy a pack of DS/DD diskettes on ebay.

 

Note, the Floppy Emu program does NOT work with USB Floppy drives, so you need an actual internal diskette drive with a lot of PCs just don't have anymore. You can still find PCI-e floppy drive controller cards that'll fit the bill.

So will TAZ work with STing or equiv?

 

I have microcosmos with fakesting and I can contact addresses directly. So can I just call a telnet bbs on TAZ?
