  2. Anyone used this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Adapter-charger-for-9VAC-AC-Atari-CO17945-400-800-810-850-1010-1050-1200XL/352530105417?epid=4018359754&hash=item52146e8449:g:3-oAAOSwLr1b~zau&frcectupt=true T-Power - I'm looking for something I can just use across different devices but can't tell if it would have enough juice to run an 810 or 1050.
  3. I was slow to the uptake as my parents had divorced and getting a computer for Christmas was a big ask. My friends mostly ended up with Spectrums. I wanted a C64 but it was too expensive. In the end my parents relented and bought me an Atari 800XL. For some time before I'd been using BBC micros on a crude network at school. A cousin had an Acorn Electron - that sucked for them.

  5. I purchased a PS3 12Gb slim the other day just to play The Last Of Us. Haven't finished the game yet as can't snag enough TV time but have fitted a 640Gb HD to the PS3 and downloading like crazy using Playstation Plus. Having been a loyal Xbox 360 owner for many years I'm enjoying the PS3 platform, and it will keep me busy for a while.

  8. I too have a Jasper 360. It only once got extremely hot, but that was when I'd been playing Oblivion for hours on end, and it was about 35c outside and about 30c inside. The controller took on a life of its own and was a good hint that maybe it was time to turn the thing off and give it a rest for a while. I've found it to be a great and reliable machine so far, but I've heard bad things about using the Kinect with the older fat models so have never bothered getting one. Kinect doesn't interest me really, not enough to risk the death of my Xbox.
  9. Just a heads up for anyone wanting to contribute something BBS related to Atari User, we're now working on the next issue, so any submissions are welcome.
  10. Bought Privateer and Wing Commander IV . Remember playing the first Wing Commander on a 386 many, many years ago. Just finished WC IV , great game. Now to try the freebies.
  11. Looks like anything that tastes great has a shit load of sugar in it... must learn to love water ...

  14. I'm just wrapping up the next issue so 2-3 weeks from now would be fine. We'd like to cover as much as possible, with some history, background on as many BBS as possible, BBS software used, hardware used, how to connect on classic hardware and via PC, that sort of thing. Ideally give each BBS plenty of coverage.
