  1. Practice and usage makes for better work, more capable offerings. I've seen people dust off their old code years later, adding those needed and missing ingredients that they've since learned... someone updates the graphics, and just like that, all of the nay sayers are like omg that's so nice thank you! They don't even realize what they love so much is the thing they ran the people down for in the first place. How about we support every effort and see what happens rather than poop all over stuff... suggestions and ideas are normally a good thing, but beating the folks who work so hard to a pulp never produces anything good.
  2. There is a way to delete the bad material within a quote. You can edit the post and only delete the quoted material... placing a note stating the quoted material broke forum rule or rules. the person who quoted or made the reply could have a PM dropped to them explaining the reason the quote or whatever was deleted. Such a thing might be helpful. The replying poster may also be given a chance to edit their reply so that they aren't left to look like they are responding to something that never took place... They could at least keep their good responses and just type a note that their post is edited to keep the bad post they responded to from continuing. More than one way to handle it that's for sure. It ain't easy, but it's possible. Just some ideas.
  3. RespeQT is my PCLINK server, APE is usually everything else(except some happy drive stuff)... I run them at the same time. APE serves one computer via the Atarimax SIO2PC usb version, another computer using the RS232 version, and then finally RespeQT to serve pclink to one or the other and some happy drive stuff. APE also acts as my internet modem in a pinch
  4. That's not only for the Pi Pico/PC, but for the XE series, as it gives the full 1200XL usage of the Keyboard for use in the XE's...
  5. this would be even better with the auxiliary choice to have the extra diagonal function keys continue all the way across. @MEtalGuy66 style.
  6. The clear cases turned out to be terrible... don't do it. There's a couple of threads explaining what happens with them over time. skip them
  7. He still had to ship it to you, so if needed your old address might help Might be an upgrade or shipping fee though.. won't be much
  8. your old registration is more than likely there... he had mine... just be prepared to give all the information you had at the time you originally registered it so he can find it (and verify it's really you).
  9. I'll try to help out via text, phone, or messages. Will require some specifics for your drives. Each are set up differently... make model etc etc embedded scsi/ or scsi controller etc.
  10. SDX allows to set extension for certain things too.
  11. It's still pretty cool and most people would never ever notice
  12. that's JIL in the middle is an i very close
  13. Now I need two more of these! Thanks guys... just one or two more 'magic' requests though... how to explain it to the wife! ... as well as an in budget source to make it all happen
  14. where's that duck? was it processed and make an exe for us? Would be cool to have that Kaz movie turned into a real slide show streaming from a hard disk/side/avg/sio2whatever./etc
  15. I hear nothing as well, so it's not just you
  16. I does indeed show SIDE hardware and ID so it looks like that jed already good. so on to the rest of it.
  17. My view has been that if it leverages the Atari Architecture with dual floating bus (or even the XL/XE BUS which isn't but could be modified to be), the personality card can change, the add ons can change, nearly anything can be added, just so long as the core remains and all of the original chipset is put to use and not forgotten. It will be an Atari, a Jay machine through and through. Of course much of this ends up looking like what became the Amiga. But that was backed by Atari and the original crew made that as well... sooo. Let's have fun. It was meant to be, just as some of the original adverts made clear, that is and was the spirit of the Atari computer.
  18. ah zero though E... got it.. no slash through the number zero and the font makes it look like an o. Makes sense now. Thanks for the venue change.
  19. you may have to update the .jed file first for the ultimate... then do the FJC update... I'd update everything that's update-able to honest... even if someone says you don't need to... because inevitably things get moved around and change. A thread of a bunch of troubleshooting follows, it ends with a simple fix and an update.
  20. extras manuals 0-E... possible that's A-E? Typo mayhaps. I will try again later... mega just told me it had a 'blob' error. 😮
  21. well, I guess you'd have to be old and on a fixed income... some may have cognitive decline, so to understand that- to an old timer nothing beats the real McCoy as that's where the brain may be locked. Others simply enjoy using their old equipment. Some folks do have even more restrictions where a laptop might be the only option... lack of space in the dwelling or space provided. If I can provide either to them I will. A low cost solution helps us to do so. Sometimes walking in another persons' shoes can change perceptions. The perspective can be mind altering. Younger kids just getting their feet wet don't always have the dinaro to go all out either... these items let them get a foot in and run with the retro gear, they are the future. As their station in life increases, I am sure they will look back on the device that got them started fondly.
  22. I think I will continue to donate to older folks on fixed incomes who love the Atari, they aren't in the wrong hobby... any and all low cost solutions can bring them joy and some happiness...
  23. heh, all kinds of issues trying download this... and then.. transfer quota this... buy this package... wait 6 hours to download... transfer quota that. really odd I'm sure it's a great collection... but sadly the nags, hassles, and hurdles are making it impossible to get.
