What happened to Raster?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys

 

I just received an email from Fandal. Raster was in a train accident today and died. That's all Fandal knew at the moment.

A real pity.

 

Raster was one of the constantly enthusiastic Atarian on the scene. Really, he left this world very young, and will be a great loss for us. What a shame.

 

Rest in peace friend.

I feel sad.

 

Will Fandal attend the funeral?

Maybe we could donate a wreath, to show that Atari enthusiasts all over the world will miss his support.

Fandal?

I didn't know him either, but I'm saddened to see this.

 

I know I've seen his name around, and I'm thinking he's made hardware, games, demos, done some cool hacks, or something. Will someone please post a little about what he did on the Atari scene? I gather he was pretty good. Sad, this is.

Here is his English language website. Hopefully someone will mirror it in case it goes offline.

 

Very sad to hear of Raster's death. I knew him mainly from his work on the MultiJoy interface (he gave me some assistance in building one of my own), but of course he made many other contributions to the Atari 8-bit computers. My limited interactions with him gave me the impression that he was brilliant, talented, and always willing to help other classic computing enthusiasts.

Damn - that is terrible news. My condolences to his family. He was only 2 years older than I :(

Thanks for the links to his site. Wow, he was quite a fellow! What a loss (to humanity), and a loss to the Atari community.

 

It looks like he (and perhaps another) created the Sdrive!!!?? I had no idea! Such genius, this is perhaps my favorite A8 device!
