  1. Thanks @BigBen and @luckybuck! This allowed me to verify our current dump of the SynTrend Graph disk 👍
  2. I ordered a back issue through the site and had no problem. However, the t-shirt I ordered along with it was sent in the wrong size. @powersoft, how do I get this corrected? I tried contacting through your website and have received no answer.
  3. Thanks for the contribution, @Porkchops & Applesauce! I've added it to the website!
  4. I have to say the XF551 case I received is really well done. Highly recommended! Gesendet von meinem ONEPLUS A6003 mit Tapatalk
  5. Will do, thanks for the tip. Gesendet von meinem ONEPLUS A6003 mit Tapatalk
  6. Sorry, I should have described it better. The problem happens with the same file (e.g. I load the same CAR file and it fails 30-40% of the time). Gesendet von meinem ONEPLUS A6003 mit Tapatalk
  7. I just picked up an Ultimate Cart from the Brewing Academy and have put a bunch of CAR and XEX files on it. I'm noticing that when I load something up, it seems to just crash the machine with a blue screen roughly 1 out of 3 times. I have confirmed this behavior is consistent on both a stock 130XE and a stock 800. Had anyone else seen this behavior? Did I get a defective cart? Thanks.

  8. Hi all, Would anyone here be able to help me (or point me at a third-party service) that can burn an EPROM? Specifically: a 1Meg x 8 bit EPROM eg. 27C080, 27c801 or 27C8000 I have a ROM file that I can provide and would need it shipped to Denver. Thanks in advance!
  9. My definition of "easy" is what makes it sustainable to continue the preservation work we do. Creating distribution channels for the dumps simply doesn't have a high priority and the current method works even if not ideal. If you are interested in doing the work to maintain it on archive.org we can certainly discuss how to support that. Otherwise, you get what you pay for 😝
  10. It's a problem of time and level of effort. Things are still changing so often in the preservation database that it would be a nightmare to keep things on archive.org up to date without building some custom tooling to support it. The torrent approach makes it easy because we can just re-generate the torrent from scratch every release.
  11. Thanks to all that have seeded and/or made download links available. Thanks for pointing this out. It should not have the [a] flag at all. It will be corrected in the next release. As others have said, you should not be seeing a "zip of zips" - if you are, you might be downloading an older torrent release. What you should be seeing is a ZIP file for each release on the website. Each file within the zip is a dump associated with that release (also as shown on the website). So the zip file is leveraged partially as a grouping mechanism. More importantly, however, is that some of the cassette dumps that have audio channels are distributed as large WAV files -- the ZIP files help at least a little to get the size down a bit. 7ZIP at high compression would be even better but I assume that could cause some folks to have problems extracting them.
  12. Thanks for the offer, Mclaneinc. We don't have anything in place to accept donations at the moment but I do appreciate the gesture. Sounds like you have your hands quite full... I hope you can find ways to get assistance and GlowingGhoul mentioned.
  13. I read everything posted both before and after your comment. Your point was valid... but the way you presented it was unkind and I felt obliged to point that out. Based on your "apology" and subsequent postings, I see there's little point in discussing the matter further.
  14. Wow, the condescension here is really uncalled for. We're all grown ups and have taken basic economics. Many of us have run successful businesses for years. Attacking people that have contributed to the community to defend ones that have contributed almost nothing is a strategy I have a difficult time understanding. I honestly expect better from a community we are spending so many hours contributing our work to for free. Reading the responses of some of the people here frankly make me feel like an idiot for giving my time away. Thanks for that 👍
