ESP-Mindlink BBS Software?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Sweet! I found a thread on Atari Age that mentions Mind Link. Also @moonlight_mile posted a picture of the disk too. Hey, @moonlight_mile do you still have the disk?

Huh, another one I don't think I've ever heard of.

I am pretty sure it is in the box with all that other software I got. I am pretty sure that is one of the few disks that were recovered from my parents attic. 
 

I don’t think I paid too much attention to it as it was for mpp/Supra modems. 
 

I’ll go down and dig it out and see the condition the disk is in. If I can recover it I will upload it here and on my tnfs server.

According to the Portland Atari Club Newsletter, their ESP-Mindlink BBS was 300/1200 baud. So, that means they were not using the MPP/Supra 300 baud modem. Maybe it will work with a modem plugged into an 850 or similar device.

 

Edit: According to AtariGeezer in the Atari Age thread above, the ESP-Mindlink disk had both MPP and Hayes versions of the BBS.

The above ATR doesn't work, but AMIS made some progress with the ATR that's in the original Atari Age thread. I have not had any luck yet. Even the original ATR is locking up. But it might be because I was trying to use SpartaDos. I wll try MyDos later. Amis and I will return to this soon. In the meantime, check out the screen shot that Amis uploaded:

It's also pretty humorous that E.S.P. stands for Efficient Sophisticated Powerful. Well, maybe it is...hopefully we can find out by resurrecting it. ;-)

I put the fixed atr on my tnfs server. For some reason when I originally uploaded it I tried to copy it with the fujinet from my Sd card to my tnfs server and it didn’t copy correctly. I didn’t realize it until jp told me. 
 

I did arc the files and uploaded them to my bbs and the basement. 
 

i also uploaded the fixed atr here. 
 

now getting it to work. That’s another issue.

One more time. I know this one works because I loaded it right from my tnfs server and got to the login screen. 
 

I have to run now but I will check to see if all files are good when I get home. 
 

I did a disk wiz 2 copy of the original to another real floppy then went into to sd x and used scopy from the sd3.2 disk to make a copy of the new disk I made (which I check to see if it worked) to a blank 90k image on the Fuji.
