#4159058 ftp.pigwa.net needs your help

Posted by ZuluGula on Fri Nov 16, 2018 8:13 PM

Many of you know and use http://ftp.pigwa.net for years. It’s a place that hosts all kinds of documents, pictures, and files for Atari and retro computing projects and websites. Its archives are constantly growing. With it comes a demand for better server hardware, more Internet bandwidth, and other related expenses. In the past, this project was funded and supported by private funds of administrator and help of polish Atari community. Now you can be a part of it and support it through Patreon https://www.patreon.com/pigwa The goal for next year is a new server hardware.

 

Thank you to everyone who decides to help.

#4084696 SRAM-Charger for Indus-GT - interest poll

Posted by ZuluGula on Fri Aug 3, 2018 10:24 AM

 I would be interested in at least 2. Would this be a plug in board or would there be any soldering involved?


It's a plug in solution.
But, don't you need at least eight of them?

So, who is going to open the build thread for the diy guys? I have some questions and i don't want to pollute development thread.

For example, how to prepare U1MB or is there much difference between $2 and $0.50 40 pin sockets in this application?

every single resistor and capacitor needs properly bent to fit in the board properly...

 

A tool like this can make this job easier.

Michael, have you thought or asked Bryan about using his UAV circuit in your board? Not as ad on, but integrated part.

I dare you to play Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! on anything but a CRT.

 

This is bad example, because there's a guy who can beat Mike Tyson playing it on LCD tv. But the picture is so bad, that he can't even look at it.

Commodore monitors make nice displays for old systems and are from proper era.
