Good morning Gunstar,

 

I still have hard time to believe , is REAL thing Starman , Telsa vehicle in real outside space for REAL ? BUT when I saw on the TV channel  and it looks like fake , look the background of earth and space. It is not quite right ....

Watched the live launch stream - my bro was there for the real launch.  It's real.

Did anyone else get their confirmation number? I'm #18 on the list!

I haven't received my number yet, and this upsets me.If my number is > 18, I am really going to throw a fit.

The Atari could do completely silent loading, but the SIO cables have an unshielded audio-in wire so you'll always hear the serial data unless you make a better SIO cable or disconnect audio-in.

I get that - but why even make the noise in the 1st place?

I always wondered why the Ataris made sound during any kind of peripheral I/O.  It was a neat, if often annoying as all hell feature.  Best thing I ever learned BITD was "POKE 65,0".

Yeah, that makes sense. My thought is to reduce the clutter, so EVERYTHING goes in the box! Next project is to build a system with Dropcheck's XF551 internal board & an S-Drive internal and a pop-up dual (NTSC/PAL) monitor.

And, when I haz ALL the free times in the worlds, I am going to think bout how to develop a dual NTSC/PAL build, so you just flip a switch (or thereabouts).

I'm working on an case mod for internal SIO2SD in my Realan H80.  It's been too cold in my garage, and I've been overwhelmed at work, so this is unfortunately on the back burner.
