  2. Finally a new video, filled to the brim with nostalgia. Hope you like it, if so, give it a thumbs up and help us grow Stay Atari!
  3. This really clears things up for me. You know, I'm not the kinda guy who likes to badmouth people, and as said in the videos, I at least try to bring something creative and positive to this wonderful community, in my case the creation of www.atarilegend.com and since last year, a youtube channel. And after reading all this, I want to share my (luckily) very short experience with this gentleman. It first started when I posted this interview last year : https://www.atarilegend.com/interviews/interviews_detail.php?selected_interview_id=44 I've always been a fan of this man ever since he released Atari ST Gamer magazine and the wonderfull Ataricrypt magazine to the ST community, and since I just got his new Atari 8 Bit book, I thought it was time to interview the man. Right after I posted the interview, I got a PM in the AtariLegend inbox by KH in which he said he was "extremely upset and concerned" about the interview. I had to remove at least part of the interview, according to him. He said the interview would put my precious website in bad light. For me, that was one bridge to far so I went in full ignore mode. Which was, after reading all the posts in this thread, the best I could do. A few minutes later I also got some negative reactions on Twitter, telling the people he could not understand why AL would take part in this (nowhere in the interview was it even suggested it had anything to do with him so I found his behavior really really strange). After that, AL was removed from all his Twitter communications. Weird... Needless to say, I was a bit in awe, I had enjoyed some of his YT videos and was always positive towards him ... A month later, after reading the fantastic Atari : a Visual History, I decided to make my very first book review video. I thought I made a pretty cool video. But just when it was released, I got negative and just downright weird feedback from one Forza77, completely dragging the author of this book through the dirt as well as Chris Wilkins. Ofcourse now, all these remarks have been removed apparantly (which I think is good), only the thumbs down have stayed The only thing left from KH is this remark when I announced the vid on the AL FB page : Always fun to read after spending many hours on creating a video (even if it turns out to be a bit of a controversial one). I have nothing against constructive criticism but this ... bah... But now I understand everything that I've experienced in the last 2 or 3 months, and it is very clear to me. Over the years, I was warned a bit about his 'odd' behavior, but I'm the kinda guy who gives everybody a chance. I will avoid this person like the plague.
  4. We are now taking a look at Unofficial Atari : a Visual History and comparing it to one of Bitmap Books amazing visual compendiums :
  5. Our new Christmas special is online : https://youtu.be/dbRbHYYSSVQ Enjoy.

  7. A new interview with Ray of Wolfenstein 3D fame : https://www.atarilegend.com/interviews/interviews_detail.php?selected_interview_id=41 Enjoy.
  8. In the latest episode of AL TV we talk to Lotek Style / Stefan Benz and his latest synthwave release : https://youtu.be/TvHkbVtVtpU
  9. For those interested, a new interview with Stefan Benz / Lotek Style was added to the Atari Legend database : https://www.atarilegend.com/interviews/interviews_detail.php?selected_interview_id=40 If there is one man who has done his share of contributions to the Atari ST scene, it must be Stefan Benz / Lotek Style. He is the founder of projects like Fading Twilight and Fujiology, main Atari ST archivist at demozoo.org, full time YM Rocker and member of The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. He has been creating chiptunes since the early 90's and has recently released his first synthwave album called Laser Days. If you are a fan of Atari ST demos, the scene or music, this has got to be your cup of tea!

  15. Hello, Was wondering if there is anyone out there who has an SF354 for parts? I know this drive does not get much love because it is a single sided 350kb drive. Was wondering if anyone has the drive itself perhaps for sale (when swapped with a double sided perhaps)? I'm looking for a working one (WITH THE SMALL SQUARE BUTTON) to replace my broken drive. Anyone? Thanks, Maarten
