  1. I have been away for a while, and am just starting to learn about this incredible device. I have watched a couple vids about it. And really like its capabilities! My Atari daily driver is a Atarimax 1200XL with a 32-in-1 OS selector. Is the new device compatible with the 32-in-1? I did a few quick searchers and did not see any results about this particular topic. Though I may have missed something in my recent absence. (in the middle of a house remodel) Sorry for interrupting the above conversation.
  2. Wow !! I did not see that either. Sorry about posted with out looking closer! I have used one of these for 240v items https://www.grainger.com/product/30C515?gclid=Cj0KCQjw-uH6BRDQARIsAI3I-UfHZKRyG6pNHkn9uAYrsvKp4hWZLN3cn0BcB8qPL4S6zl8XFNrxvkAaAr2NEALw_wcB&cm_mmc=PPC:+Google+PLA&ef_id=Cj0KCQjw-uH6BRDQARIsAI3I-UfHZKRyG6pNHkn9uAYrsvKp4hWZLN3cn0BcB8qPL4S6zl8XFNrxvkAaAr2NEALw_wcB:G:s&s_kwcid=AL!2966!3!281698275255!!!g!471571925921!&gucid=N:N:PS:Paid:GGL:CSM-2295:EUGDJC:20500731 It is not too expensive. I has come in handy a few times with stuff I got from euroupe, and for friends that had similar computer items.
  3. I would like to replace the loud fan in a Megafile30. Anyone know the correct size before I have to crack it open? It is a 12v fan yes/no? Thanks
  4. This is very sad news. Much too early!! R.I.P. Curt I was just texting back and forth with him not 5 days ago about the 1800XL ! We have had many phone calls over the years. He was helping me restore the STBook he sold me some years ago. I know he had been battling some health issue for several years, but I got the impression he had beaten it last year. His vast knowledge will be sorrily missed !!
  5. No problem about hijacking. This all make for good discussion. I do not think 'leach' is the right word, or even idea. People put pics online for all to view. If an item is up for sale, that person obviously does not want it any more. So getting those pics should not be a problem, or you can wit until after it is sold. Our hobby is a very niche one, and almost everyone seems willing to contribute in some way to help keep it going. I do not think anyone would mind if you used online pics for a archive or reference purposes. Inline with that, it is probably better to have this info available in more that one place. If you still have some bad feeling about it, you could watermark, or note the source of the pic or manual. You probably know it, but if not, here is a good podcast about Atair monitors. https://inverseatascii.info/2018/03/02/1632-e005-the-one-with-the-monitors/
  6. Sorry, my bad eyes! Excellent page by the way. Bookmarked for future reference! Be sure add amber on black to the PCM124 note. There are many good pics in here and from a google search to help fill some of the missing pics on your page. I do not think anyone would mind you using them for reference purposes.
  7. Mitch, Looking at your list I did not see this one current for sale https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-Quadrant-Components-Inc-QC-1438S-Monitor-Monochrome-Display-Computers/124314048757?hash=item1cf1b1d8f5:g:k9IAAOSw9R1fRxXm
  8. I already have a good working one of these. I would say this is Atari's only 8-bit monitor? Mine had very little use and the amber text is nice and sharp. Also note that there are matching 5.25" drives on ebay for the PC1's or ST's, fyi Enjoy, looking forward to seeing pics of this all cleaned up and looking good!
  9. Just saw this in ebay in case some one wants one. These to not come up often. FYI https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintage-ATARI-PCM124-Monitor-for-ATARI-PC3-computer-very-CLEAN/254700554461?hash=item3b4d5608dd:g:KrcAAOSw-1lfRob9
  10. Thanks for the replies. This was in a lot that came from an Atari engineer here in sunnyvale. I do not think it is a home brew. The traces look very much 'Atari' like. In the box with this were several other A/E's, Atariwriter, Pilot, Action!, and several regular brown carts games including a Star Raider no s. Maybe a 5200 sample cart board? 3/83 would be about right for development? Anyone know what the PwCI-D means? Oh, on the back is some large 1" long, printed, outlined "J"'s. On the front left of the PwCI-D is a partial box with some unreadable text, printed the same way as the J's on the back.
  11. Possible. Anyone seen a gray case A/E cart? I haven't. Maybe a proto of a gray cased A/E? I have never open a gray case cart. what are those PCB dimensions? The solder joints on the back do look hand done. Not wave. But the PCB looks pro made.
  12. In going trough yet another recent Atari lot, I found a Editor Assembler PCB too wide for a cart body. The part numbers show it as the less common Editor Assembler cart, not the Assembler Editor. The PCB is unusual. it has square edges not the broken off edges like most others. Also, very unusual, is it is too wide to fit into a standard brown cart body. I'd say it is about 2mm+ too wide. And probably too long. It is just as long as the top of that inside clip to hold the PCB in place. The PCB reads PwCI-D 8303. When I found it, there was clear packing tape around the main section. Now that I think about it, it was probably there so the user would not short the card when putting into a 800. I took it off and removed all the sticky tape residue off of it. The card works normally. Notice the tin contacts, not gold. The pic shows the card in question on top. Below is a normal E/A card for comparison. Any ideas?
  13. I got a CD's for office 2003, and 2007 with keys from a bulk lot ebay mis-titled listing for cheap. I kept the parts I needed for a build and sold the extra, and made a tiny profit for my hobby kitty. Of cause that went into getting more Atari goodness!! Removable sticker over old lables. Looking good!! Avery 6464's But they still needed trimming.
  14. Got it, Those are paid apps. I'm kind of cheap when it comes to software. But I figured it out in word. Had to dig deep into it, but I found where to change pic sizes. I printed them up and guillotined (not an easy process!) the removable labels. I looks like you may have missed my forth cart? 810 Disc Diagnostics, The one not labeled fd100006. But the Disc manufacturing test rev 0 7/82 ?
  15. Mr. Robot, How do I print your excellent high quality labels to the right size? I copied and pasted one into Word and it filled the page. I can manually resize, but the word ruler is in inches and not very accurate. Suggestions? Again thanks for all the effort to make these! You might want to add these to your cart label website?
  16. Just thinking out loud, off the top of my head or cuff; Would Atari use the word SALT on a cart? They seem to spell things out on them I think SALT stands for Stand ALone system Test ? Yes No? Since is would be brown label everyone would know it is for 400/800's So like the silver label I found earlier: DIAGNOCICS (yellow) CARTRDIGE(yellow) STAND ALONE SYSTEM TEST (white, 1 or 2 lines??) Use with console keyboard (as usual) ATARI CXD 2.0x (D for Diagnostics like L is for Language/game ??) What do you all think?
  17. The Doctor, can you explain procedure. I do have the MaxFlash programing usb cart. Not the software.
  18. Here are the BIN's for SS 01. My tl866 cant read 2532's for SS 2.07, and I do not want to the FD100006 with the silver label. How to read roms in an Atari? I have AtariMax's 32-in-1if that is helpful. Simple Salt hi.BIN Simple Salt lo.BIN
  19. WOW !! thanks those look GREAT !! I will use non-permant sticker paper, so they can easily be pulled off to see the original sticker. The paper tends to cruel when printed and peeled. But put a few paper towels (to get over the cart rim ridge), and a few books, and a couple days and they stay on good. I would love to share the dumps, no problem, but I have not dumped the carts in question above. I thought those would have been dumped long ago. I see 2.07 Salt carts on ebay every few months. There is one up now with a strange old label. I can dump the 2 carts I can open with my TL866. The one with the silver label, I do not know how to dump it in a Atari. Post a how to link?
  20. Yes, I am the one in the SLCC. I have several 800's. Most are unmodified, or the mods that just pull out. I would be happy to help. PM me
  21. That last cart in my pic above has a blank Atari Service Diagnostics Cartridge label on the back!! I can't get inside the cart without making a hole in that label. Looking closely at it, it has the same vertical 'strippng' as most of the regular brown labels. The white area look like it is for a hand written number or name. So decision to make; Do we use the brown label or this silvery label? Or half and half. When did Atari switch from large black, gray, or blue software boxes to the silver? And use that a divider to match up with the dates in these carts? Is so what would a brown service label might have looked like? What do you all think? Possibly list some additional suggestions or ideas for Mr. Robot?
  22. Thanks for sharing. That is most kind of you. I too would like to see what Mr. Robot cane come up with. The link above, at least for me, returns 75 hits for 'optima'. Which is the correct one? Also is the 'computer language' font is different? As to the CX or RX numbers? Below are boot screen shots of the carts I pictured above left to right, down left to rigtht. The white label shows Diagnostic Training Classroom. The single IC(not eprom) shows C19125 SALT 1.0 The second white label shows 600/800 simple salt. The eproms show S.S. 01 8/9/84 (hi, lo) 400/800 Salt II, eproms only show SL SR (salt left, salt right ??) 810 Disk Diagnostics, the eprom is a yellow sticker with 4 rows of 'x' all over it. No label, and eproms show 2.05 low, hi the last, lower right in my pic above, 810 Diagnostics cartridge FD100006. Whhaaoo hold on, it has a Atari label on the back i did not see. see next post.
