  1. Author Philip K. Dick wrote and spoke about ideas that would eventually lead to The Matrix. Here he is speaking in 1977 about us living in a simulation, a strange visit from a mysterious dark-haired girl, and how deja-vu could be an indication that something was changed in the simulation:
  2. Thank you, good idea. I will probably end up going this route.
  3. Anyone know if you can get replacement copper springs for the type 4? They are about an inch long and are used as the 'post' to cause contact in the mylar. If not, can I replace the whole keyboard with any type, or do I need to get another type 4? Previous owner jury rigged it, but it didn't work that great. Can provide pics if needed.
  4. Aren't XLs easy to come by? Are you purposely avoiding non 400/800 machines? Agree with other(s), all ataris are great, but the 400s keyboard would get on my nerves if I had to do a decent session at the kb.
  5. I know in a fully working drive if you boot with no disk it will keep printing "BOOT ERROR"
  6. The quality sounded good to me, and the tunes were good too. Thanks.
  7. A big improvement indeed! Well done, and thanks for preserving!
  8. AtariSociety, Peruchi, As far I know this is a cartridge. Also as far as I know this is a basic ethernet device with programs such as telnet and a text-based http browser.
  9. Disk Images - computer file representation of an atari 8 bit disk, *.atr is the most popular format Tape Images - computer file representation of an atari 8 bit cassette, *.cas Cartridge ROM Images - computer file representation of a rom cartridge, *.bin is one Executable Images - computer file representation of a binary executable, *.xex is one BASIC programs - these would most commonly be located on an *.atr For a simple setup that would be close to how I did basic as a kid would be: blank dos disks in *.atr format, old school simple would be dos 2.0S 1 basic rom or emulation of an atari with built-in basic load the disk(*.atr) in the emulator load basic rom(*.bin) or enable built in basic then you can write basic and SAVE "D:<filename>" etc. to find disk images or cart images, you will need to use google or similar, but they are out there. good luck

  11. Symptom sounds similar to a common 1200xl problem where the keyboard connector ribbon would not make full contact when connected to the board. At least the pattern of keys not working would be similar. Not sure if this will help ya, but good luck.
  12. Here are text file dumps using hexdump -Cv. You can diff them with a diff tool to see what's different 1-dos.sys.hexdump.txt is from Master Diskette II (1980)(Atari)(US)[!].atr 2-dos.sys.hexdump.txt is from Master Diskette II (1980)(Atari)(US)[a].atr I also included screen shots of tkdiff of the 3 different areas. 1-dos.sys.hexdump.txt 2-dos.sys.hexdump.txt
  13. Sorry for steering you wrong. I remember that working with my sio2pc and xegs, but since I don't have that hooked up now I can't verify. I tested it via atari800 emulator with 800xl and 800xl os and the driver loads but then the atari crashes after. I changed the name back from autorun.sys to hisio.com and I am able to 'L' it through atari dos 2.0s and it loads and doesn't crash in the emulator. Unfortunately I cannot test with real hardware at the moment, but like I said atari800 emulator is happy with it. Here is the atr. Note that this version is for disk-loading only, if it works and you would like to create a rom, you would need to use hisior.com or hisiork.com. I never did that before, but that's what the README.txt says. I see you packed up the stuff for now(understandable heheh) but hopefully this will work if you are able to give it a shot. hipatch.atr
