BAD NEWS: I am forgetting things. Today, i didnt know my Facebook pasword nor my e-mail pasword, while I use the pasword every day more than 5 years. Also sometimes when I went to the toilet and then go back to my computer, 5 minutes later i cant remember if i actually went to the toilet. sometimes i dont remember words for ordinary things like a basket or newspaper. Korsakov / Dementia ? I might even forget my family and friends... but do my my dear friends and family remember me ?
SLECHT NIEUWS : Het gaat niet zo goed met mij. Ik vergeet veel dingen. Ik wist vandaag niet eens mijn wachtwoord meer voor e-mail en faceboek, terwijl ik dat elke dag al meer dan 5 jaar gebruik... Ik heb ook regelmatig dat ik naar de WC ben geweest en dan ga computeren en 5 minuten later niet eens meer weet of ik uberhaupt naar de WC ben geweest. Soms weet ik woorden niet meer voor alledaagse zaken. Zoals het woord "vensterbank", "asbak" enzo... dat is foute boel. Korsakov / Dementie ? Dadelijk vergeet ik mijn geliefden ook. Of zijn ze mij ondertussen al vergeten ?
I will talk with my doctor about having a memory test in the hospital. I also have headaches since 3 months. I fear the bad things. Wish me luck.
I can't remember my facebook password, or just about any passwords. I have a five page spreadsheet with 137 usr and pswds. Speedcalc, MS Excel are good spreadsheet programs.
An LFSR maybe? Might make sense for a simple dongle, as it's easy to simulate in software (clock in a few random bits, check the output against the software version) but still reasonably non-trivial to replace for a prospective copier. Probably about as good hardware protection as you can get on an 6502. These boxes certainly won't be doing RSA.
here's the inside of mine. I doubt it still works.
It's not the link, it's the attachment below it that has the 8-bit ATR's for the 6 issues of Start.
I do not have a list of the the exact issues and programs that are missing. I just know some of them are missing. The early issues might have one or two of the games in the issue but other stuff is missing. For example, they did programs in other languages like LOGO and PILOT and those are not on those disks usually.
Complete list of Antic Magazines
Antic began publication 4/82, Volume 1, Issue 1.
They were bi-monthly for the first Volume, six issues.
Starting 4/83 (Vol. 2:1), Antic became monthly.
They published monthly until 9/89, missing only one month
(5/84), making the volume year end with April issue instead
of March issue. That's 65 consecutive monthly issues from
2:1 to 8:5.
Starting 10-11/89, Antic became bi-monthly again (issue
8:6), and were bi-monthly for only 5 issues. Volume 8 only
had 8 issues. 10-11/89 (8:6), 12-1/89-90 (8:7), 2-3/90
(8: 8 ), 4-5/90 (9:1) and 6-7/90 (9:2), <-- the last issue of
a separate Antic. There was no 8-9/90 Antic. Then Antic was
put as a section of STart magazine for 4 issues (10, 11, 12,
1/90-91). Then STart, still with an Antic 8-bit section,
went bi-monthly for the last 2 issues (2-3/91 and 4-5/91)
then STart folded and that was the end of Antic and STart.

That's 94 issues total, including issues in STart, 88
SALVAGEX did work on one version of the EGYPT file and made it LOAD-able again, but it seems to only be a portion of the program.
On the other version of the EGYPT file the SALVAGEX tool runs much longer and recovers more of the program, but then it gets an ERROR 164 and doesn't complete successfully. Even so, it recovers quite a bit more of the code as LOAD-able.
In both cases, this is still much better than what I had before. At least I get more to work with.
However, if you there is a way to get this to recovery the ENTIRE file, that would of course be better.
...but it won't restore the original variable names (obviously). I'm thinking it was some other corruption than intentionally wiping the table...because why would somebody do that to their own programs?
Yes, I don't remember if SALVAGE assigns variable names for all files, or just those with a mashed vnt. I think it restores
Hmm, picture is going to be difficult, because i took the atari apart and desolderd the rf-modulator.
Don't know how to say it in proper English, but it's like a major snowstorm on my (LED)screen. Through the snow, you can see the blue screen with the text ready, which seems to be ok exept from the snow.
It's a 130XE. The MT memory chips are frequent problem. Maybe if you touch the chips, you will feel one or more
getting warm. I don't know another way to check those chips. Well, you can see if they are MT chips by the
logo on the chip.
What would be great would be someone who knows what a logic probe or oscilloscope might tell you about
the MT chips.
OH! WAIT. I do have a Sam's for the 130XE. Here's the page about video. It won't help much unless
you have good electronics technician skills.
Another edit: GTIA and Antic are important video chips.Antic U7 and GTIA U17. How you check them?
Uh, swap them with known good ones. Or check the waveforms with oscilloscope.
