In Topic: Hardware recommendations to run 8-bit BBS on Internet

Today, 6:05 PM

Here's what I have: 

  • Atari 800XL, 130XE and 1200XL computers
  • 1050 drives (unmodified)
  • At least one Indus GT
  • XEP80
  • SIDE2 cart
  • Commodore 1702 monitors

That's it in terms of relevance to this discussion.  I just looked at Compact Flash cards and see you can get them in sizes that are somewhat ridiculous for an Atari 8-bit computer.  I read through the SIDE2 manual and it recommends using a 2GB card.  Is there an upper limit?  I'd need to buy some CF cards. 


What are the advantages of the Ultimate 1 MB versus the SIDE2?  It seems there is quite a bit of overlap in their features.

Very cool, I look forward to seeing this running.  I'd also love to get this running myself at some point.  I have lots of Atari 8-bit hardware, but will need some additional pieces to get it connected to the internet, I'm sure.  


Jerry Horanoff is still around, I've spoken with him recently.

I wonder how many copies of Carina 1.0 were sold.  Thinking about it more, I probably did run Carina 1.0 for a bit before switching over to Carina II.  Still unlikely I have the manual, though.  It would be nice if someone could come up with a copy!

I asked Jerry Horanoff (Carina's author) if he had a copy of the manual, and he doesn't believe he does.  Just curious, why do you want to use the original Carina versus Carina II?
