    Just about anything electronic. At about 10 I built my first radio it was a cat's whisker and copper coil around a toilet paper roll. I got the ear bud from a neighbor who bought a three transistor radio and promptly dropped it in the lavatory while he was shaving. I also build wooden tall ships. Two to three feet long and 18 to 24 inches tall (but they take years to finish).
  • Currently Playing
    I like combat strategy type games like Eastern Front, Invasion Orion, War in Russia, Combat Leader etc.

  1. Too rich for me, but thanks for the info. DavidMil
  2. I didn't think that Radio Shack actually made floppy drives, but rather purchased them from a third party and stuck their stickers on them. I'd love to have a look inside... DavidMil
  3. While rummaging around on EBAY, I found a TRS 80 Floppy Drive. Can anyone tell me if this is really a Percom drive in disguise? DavidMil
  4. Add several TOOTS from me too! Notice that I'm resisting the urge to go TOOT, TOOT, TOOT? Wait a minute, I guess I did it anyway... DavidMil
  5. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks Adam! David
  6. Didn't I see somewhere that Gateway to Apshai dungeons had also been mapped out? I have never finished that game, even though I modified my game to give you 254 lives at the start. DavidMil
  7. You can put anything over that EPROM window to block out the light. Even a piece of paper with black Marks-A-Lot all over it, under a piece of Scotch Tape would work. DavidMil
  8. Here is a couple of pics from my 1200XL problems. I couldn't get the little LED board from Best so I made my own. The pins are on 3mm centers and you can find the female connectors online just about anywhere. DavidMil
  9. Not exactly an Atari topic, but we have a lot of Atari fans in Europe so I wanted to say... Having been through several floods (but nothing near to what has been going on in Europe now), my heart goes out to you, and I wish you all a speedy and healthy recovery! My wife and I have included you in our prayers. DavidMil
  10. As long as you don't expose the clear part of the chip that you can see the actual EPROM in, there is no problem with reading the data on the top of the chip. Even exposing the clear cover for a few minutes to indoor lighting shouldn't hurt (but one never knows). Does your board look like this? If it does, odds are the EPROM's are compatible. I can send you the EPROM that I have programed and if you feel brave you can swap them out and see what happens... My burner is from the late 1970's and is very limited as to types of chips it can burn. You can ask on this site and get some very good feedback about burners from a host of users. But to answer your question, mine is a Modular Circuit Technology's MOD-MEP-4A, Four Gang EPROM Burner. It requires a 8 bit card, a special cable, and only runs under DOS. I'll PM you with my mailing address. Do you use PayPal? DavidMil
  11. That sounds like a deal to me, but... Let me see what I can do about burning a chip. You realize that my chip has a rev level of RFD 2.1? I'm not even sure if it is still working. Is you chip a 2716 chip? Can you send me all the info on the chip itself? After looking at my chip, I'm pretty sure that I can make you a copy it. DavidMil
  12. Best and myatari are both out of the 12 foot video cables like the ones that came with the 400/800 computers. Does anyone know of an alternate source to replace these cables? Thank you, DavidMil
  13. It seems like every time I put a Atari plastic part in the dish washer, the labels get washed off. It got to the point that I had more than eight 850's and nine 835's that were missing labels. I like to buy Atari products on Ebay, recondition them, and then resell them on Ebay. Problem is, you have to have all the labels to get any kind of a decent price. So after some searching I found that starwander (here on AtariAge) can make them, and they look great. I've attached a pic to show the ones he made for me. My thanks to starwander! DavidMil
  14. In that case, I'm doomed! David
