  1. I'm sorry I forgot to post the time in my initial post. The time was 20:30 CET (7:30pm UTC), but the registration link only works as long as the meeting has not started. Next meeting in March will be on a Sunday, that will it make easier for people to join with the time colliding with work. I will post the new meeting date soon. There will also be a recording of the presentation of Turbo Rascal, I will post the link here as soon it is available.
  2. Hi, tonight (14. 02. 2022) in the online meeting of the English speaking ABBUC members group I will show "Turbo Rascal Syntax Error (TRSE)", an open source cross-platform IDE with a Pascal-like language, assembler and sound/graphics tools. Homepage https://lemonspawn.com/turbo-rascal-syntax-error-expected-but-begin/ If you want to participate you can register here: https://abbuc.ecosero.de/run/meeting?p_muuid=0978962278161794722833675
  3. Hi, we're (Joachim Bassmann, Thomas "twh" Havemeister, Carsten Strotmann) starting a new "regional ABBUC group" called the "ABBUC group world". ABBUC has "regional groups" where ABBUC and Atari people meet in Germany. As ABBUC get's more and more non-german speaking members, we want to form a new "regional" group called "ABBUC world". Now this is not "regional", in the contrary, but as all other sub-groups inside ABBUC are called "regional groups", we stay with this little BrainF*. It is the group for all non-german-speaking ABBUC members. Meetings will be online, language is English. The first meeting will be 14th February 2022, 19:30 UTC (20:30 CET) Topics: * Charter of ABBUC regional group "world" (what we do) * ABBUC news * English translations of ABBUC magazine * Demo: Turbo Rascal Syntax Error - a new IDE targeting Atari 8bit (among others) * 50 years of Atari - ideas for the big date If you have additional topics, please let us know. To join, please register for this event with the link below https://abbuc.ecosero.de/run/meeting?p_muuid=0978962278161794722833675 Additional discussion can happen also in the ABBUC Forum at https://abbuc.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=423
  4. The Wiki is back online, the investigation found that the application is not vulnerable to the current discussed log4j security issue.
  5. Hi, FYI, the Atariwiki at https://atariwiki.org is currently down due to a security issue with the log4j library used by the Atariwiki software. The admins need to investigate and wait for an update from upstream (the Forum software project). The Wiki will be back online in a few weeks, but it might be after Christmas. Greetings Carsten
  6. I guess the new board might not know about these arrangements. Edit: I've opened a ticket for the ABBUC webserver team
  7. The ABBUC Webpage requires a browser that supports TLS v1.3 encryption. TLS encryption is implemented inside the application (some browser use functions of the operating system and therefore depend on the operating system). Windows XP and Window 7 are "end of life" and have not been update for modern (secure) encryption. The older TLS protocol versions (1.0,1.1,1.2) all have serious security issues. Use Windows XP and Windows 7 in local, closed networks for retro computing pleasure. If you can't upgrade to a modern Windows version, use Linux, BSD or other operating systems that implement TLS v1.3. I plan to create a version of the ABBUC webpage for "retro" machines. It is mainly for older machines (Atari 8bit, Atari ST, Amiga etc). But I guess Windows XP and Windows 7 are also "retro" by now. I can't promise when the "retro" version of the page will be available. It will be "read only" (no posting), it will have minimal theming, no JavaScript, and it cannot contain for technical reasons the "Members only" content. I recommend to not use any outdated operating system and web browser combination on the Internet, it is a thread to your network and to the Internet as a whole.
  8. Next m68k evening chat: Date: Friday 28th of May 2021, 20:30 H CEST (18:30H / 06:30 PM UTC) Information: http://m68k.info In the upcoming m68k chat we will talk to Dr. Volker Barthelmann, developer of the vbcc compiler, vasm assembler and vlink linker. vbcc is a highly optimizing portable and retargetable ISO C compiler. It supports ISO C according to ISO/IEC 9899:1989 and most of ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (C99). vbcc runs on and can produce code for a large number of platforms, such as m68k, Coldfire, PowerPC, 65(C)02, i386 (Linux, NetBSD), VideoCore IV (RasperryPi GPU) and even for the Z-Machine (Infocom Text-Adventure VM). See Volker's homepage http://compilers.de/ for more information on the vbcc compiler.
  9. This might be of interest for 6502 coders as well, as vbcc can target 6502 and the Atari 8bit machines: Next m68k evening chat: Date: Friday 28th of May 2021, 20:30 H CEST (18:30H / 06:30 PM UTC) Information: http://m68k.info In the upcoming m68k chat we will talk to Dr. Volker Barthelmann, developer of the vbcc compiler, vasm assembler and vlink linker. vbcc is a highly optimizing portable and retargetable ISO C compiler.

  10. Hi, the next m68k evening developers chat is tomorrow: Friday 6th November 2020, 19:00 H CET (18:00H / 06:00 PM UTC) Location https://meet.m68k.info/m68k (will be online before the meeting starts) Feature 1: New m68k target in Qemu - Laurent Vivier will talk about the existing QEMU Quadra 800 emulation and the linux-user mode. He will explain what are their limitations are, and then what a pure virtual machine can improve. We will see what the machine can do and how to use it. There will be a little demo. Feature 2: Chroot into m68k - a seamless m68k dev environment on Linux with Qemu This time it is less Atari ST specific, but interesting for m68k developers nonetheless See you there Carsten
  11. Christian Zietz did a nice presentation about EmuTOS 1.0 on Atari machines during last weeks m68k online chat The video recording of that presentation is now online on http://m68k.info and on Youtube:
  12. this can be true, I'm pretty sure I've found window.obj somewhere and used it from Turbo-Basic. When I switched over to ACTION!, I've made the ACTION! glue code, but never used it, as in ACTION! it is just simple to write own windowing routines. -- CS
  13. Thanks for giving this information, I'm always interested in programming language concepts. I need to find some time to work with PL65 it seems
  14. the current blog system is too heavy-weight, I plan to move to a lightweight static page blog system. I do not have much free time, so it is moving slowly. But there will be a new content and a new blog at some point of time. The regional group in Frankfurt is still doing strong, but I now live 300 KM away and have a small kid, so I'm not able to attend their meetings. But I meet with Beetle (Stefan) from time to time and do Atari stuff. Greetings Carsten
  15. I've now added WINDOW.OBJ to the atariwiki page (attachment). I remember using these ASM routines first from Turbo-Basic, them later I wrote the ACTION! interface, but never really used it in any applicaitons. The WINDOW.OBJ has not been written by me, I don't remember the origins. -- CS
