  1. Probably about time for a MENU / BOOT / 9640 MENU development topic. "9640 MENU" 80 column [17 Feb 2020] 9640menu 17Feb2020.zip - Added TIPI clock support. Menu checks time about every second. I suppose I could remove the seconds and check ever 30 seconds or so. I don't know of a way to access the TIPI DSR without blinking the light - All other clocks are currently untested and might not function. I can barely understand the spaghetti code I wrote in 2015 (for reasons historically documented). Intent is to rework Classic99 and Triple Tech to use the DSR. MBP/Clulow/Geneve clocks will remain direct-access. . - Catalog routine overhauled. Sector IO out; level 3 catalog in place. Allows entry of a path e.g., TIPI.FOLDER1. or SCS1.FOLDER2. - Drill down into subdirectories and select the file you want to run or view - FCTN-8 to enter a new path; use the "..\" to go up a level. When you are at the root, pressing enter on the "..\" will recatalog the device. - If you exit the catalog and return the last path is remembered - The options creation (F4) and the Edit/Save (F5) options are still tied to disk numbers. Will look to change that down the road. - The options files are currently compatible with the prior release. This could change if I enhance the program with paths and other information, or redo the antiquated menu structure. - If you have a Remind-Me file in the TIPI root in the format MM-YYYY, pressing "Y" at the menu will display the day's reminders and any scratchpad notes. This feature is a novelty at present and subject to update or removal. The various clock support complexities may dictate my next steps. - Are there bugs? Probably. I am using this as my daily menu program via the Horizon 4000B at present. MENU 40 column 7.39 [16 Feb 2020] - Minor tweak for ROS 8.42c. See ROS development thread. Link to earlier topic related to 9640MENU
  2. Hi all, I recently rescued my old Atari 800XL from my parents' attic and wanted to give it a whirl. It's just a base unit with an XC12 cassette deck, bust I spent a huge amount of time on it when I was a kid, both playing games and programming. I connected it up and was delighted to find that familiar blue screen looking at me! However, it does not seem to be able to read data from the tape deck. In fact, having the tape deck even attached seems to affect the startup of the computer - with nothing attached to the SIO port, it starts up as normal. With the cassette deck attached however, the little noise before READY appears is different and much faster. I don't know what the purpose of that clicky noise is between the blue screen appearing and READY appearing, but having the tape deck attached affects it where it never used to back when I used it regularly. Anyone have any ideas what might cause this? I'm pretty good technically, but most of my retro experience is repairing Amigas - I don't have any experience with the Atari at all, so any pointers as to where the fault might lie would be appreciated. Thanks!
  3. So... The past couple of months have been just straight up loser denial. I'm about to shave my head because I'm watching my hair leap off of my crown. I've stayed at a stable 190 since I saw her. I shed everything like a coat and am floating around at this weight for some reason. Lilith and I agree that my new weight loss regime need only include thinking of this beautiful flower and feeling that twisting aching in my heart to shed off whatever I ate (or drank...) and simmer back down to 190. I can ignore her slightly, but her face is burned into my mind. Before I think, it goes through a filter of her face. To ignore her is to invite the gods to toy with me. I pick up a book I've never read and her name pops up. The next night Lilith and I watch a movie and the female leads character is her name. Before that night when I fell inescapably in love with her I could count the times I've even heard her name in my whole life on one hand. I'm the kinda guy that will scare the crap out of someone by reciting per word what they said twenty years ago. But since that night her name and face and stories that are obviously her and I over and over again are in everything I see and hear. I love her so much that I know that I need her and it's rending my soul. I've still been stuck in guitar mode mostly to get the feelings out somehow. I've played better than I've ever been able to before, but I feel like everything is expression now and no practice. I wrote a song, right after being able to play this way, for her. I feel like she may never hear it. I can try to fish through my programs but I just feel like everything is about her and for her. I want her to be right here while I make art for her and I want her to make art with me. The poetry is still coming out. Odin himself assigned me this so nothing could strip poetry and guitar from me. Well, maybe guitar... To EL, though... I'm not Jay Bear, so you know. I'm not going to just whither away, and be aware, for whatever it's worth, that every beautiful woman who ever broke my heart (when I think upon the maidens, who I swore to love on high) blew up like a derigible and fed me a whimper en passant. I would think you immune to this. I love you. I have so many impossible things to tell you about. Here is a poem that caught the attention of some well educated friends... Galaxies Collide (and on a Wednesday) by Jason Lee Caraway You must love everyone who ever did sing. But, then choose one who is everything. To talk through an unfathomed void, wide of a world unseen as a realm's flip side As time's ascent, descent has ways of creating our confuséd conversational haze You will rise and fall as the sun assured and hang by tide moon of every word For even one word from one another to be heard! I ask Lilith what I should do. Should I give up? "No! I picture her here with you. I see her coming to you one day!" She holds my heart in her hands when I sleep. When you've been with someone for twenty years you know things. She knows I'm absolutely genuine in my feelings. It brings me great joy that my wife wishes us to be together. I have images of a glorious wedding and a future with you. My love who I may never see. You see I told Lilith long ago that she would put my ring on me to show me I'm her husband. Years went by with the ring sitting, forged invincible with the names of my children and ones I'm eternally bound to (your name will be on there, too.), on the top of the book. "Why do you never put my ring on me, Lilith?" "Because, I forgot." Please don't forget me EL. I will never forget you.
  4. Hi! My name is Greg. New to the forum. Finally getting around to posting on here. I have been collecting retro computers and consoles for a number of years now, but have yet to really participate in forums. Currently I own an Amiga 600, TI 99/4A, Atari 800XL, and now new to the stable is a Tandy 1000 EX. It was obtained second hand for $5. I spent this afternoon taking the machine apart and cleaning; as well as inspecting the hardware. The computer is all clean now and boots to a prompt for a bootable discs. Herein lies the issue... I have no discs! I don't really have a way of imaging discs for 5.25 drives at this time unfortunately. After some research, I found that I will require MS-DOS 2.11 to be able to boot this machine to run software. Here are my questions. 1. Does anyone have a copy of MS-DOS 2.11 or has the means to copy a disc for me that could be mailed? 2. What is the easiest way to image these discs nowadays? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. If you can send me a copy that would be great. I would paypal for the copy of the disc and to cover shipping.
  5. Hi all - I just busted my cart port surround on my Atari 7800, so I'm looking for a replacement. This is the black plastic one screwed to the main PCB from underneath. Many thanks! Matt (Wakefield, UK)
  6. Hi all, I have a problem with my atari 4160ste, it suddenly started to stop booting. It was working fine, except the floppy drive which was dead, so I bought a replacement one and then everything was perfect for a day and suddenly I got this bomb screen on start up. I have no idea what is causing this, I checked all the chips and stuff inside to look for a dodgy connexion or anything suspicious but it all looks OK and since it was working 5 min before I wonder what could have gone wrong all of a sudden. It sometimes starts if I force reset several time, most of the time it turn it on and get no sound at all, like its not even trying, but if I reset it a couple times sometimes with a floppy inside, it will eventually load the game or come back to the TOS environment. I have no knowledge whatsoever in electronics and computer components, I can just see that all the connexion seem fine on my boards. Could be a dodgy ram upgrade from previous user ? but it was working everytime before and all looks in good working order. Any idea what could be causing this ? Advice most welcome. cheers!
