  • More GIM Progress

    Well now that the CVS Server is up, I was able to put in the new updates, which includes the port to Windom 2.x which now allows Gim to be compatible with XaAES and N.AES (for sure). I also realized I was talking to an offline nothingness the other day so I added the type of notifications that Gaim has to make sure that such a thing doesn’t happen anymore. I also put in some updates for Sparemint Update Manager which includes Windom 2.
  • Open Source and Atari

    As the title would suggest, this is an article that goes into depths not so much about the concepts and ideals of open source but instead dilvulges in plain detail how open source has helped the world, and specifically Atari. It will also go into detail as to describe my future plans and how open source could lead Atari to a very bright future. To start we should probably go through a little bit of background of about how open source software has helped Atari already.
  • My First and Final Attempt at Creating an Atari ROM Port Ethernet Board

    Hey guys, I wanted to give out a sort of update regarding the ethernet boards that I was building to adapt the Genius E3000-II to work with the Atari rom-port. Elmar Hilgarte already sells these adapters, but as he is overseas, I was hoping to create a cheaper solution for Americans. Also I have found that at times, he is unable to answer his email very quickly. More or less this is the story.
  • STiNG versus STiK2 versus iConnect versus MiNTnet versus MagiCNet

    This debate will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each of the three popular TCP/IP stacks for TOS and MiNT. This is meant to be a comprehensive article that delves into the inner workings of these stacks as best as I can mentally do. Also discussed are plain eyesight observations about functionality and effectiveness. STiNG: STiNG is a rather exceptional stack originally written primarily by Peter Rottengatter, and later taken over by Ronald Andersson.
  • An Unbiased MagiC versus MiNT Comparison

    Preface: In my travels throughout the Atari community, there has been quite a bit of heresay regarding two of the most popular operating environments, MagiC and MiNT. Huge debates and even spirted fights have been sparked by loyal users defending their platform of choice. It is without a doubt, that at some point throughout these arguments, facts are contorted and perhaps presented in a misleading way. The simple fact is though, that any person can turn on a computer, use it, operate it, and take note of how things run, how fast they are, and how flexible it is.
  • Hardware Upgrade Dilemmas

    Unbeknownst to many, a debate goes on in the Atari community. Often in secret, it is argued over and over again… What is the best path of hardware upgrades for Atari users. I’ve seen it argued on message forums and as well I’ve seen it argued on usenet. The way I see it, is that there is three basic paths. 1) Emulation. PowerPC macs are able to run MagiC Mac and thus Atari software at lightning speed over the real Ataris, but at a significant penalty.
  • The Guide to Falcon Emulators

    Today while there’s a lot of choice in Falcon accelerators, all having strengths and weaknesses, unfortunately none of them can be purchased new. If you’re lucky at the time of this writing, you can get on the CT60 “abandoned” list in which case you might be able to buy a CT60 that the prior buyer didn’t follow thru on. So.. Let’s start from the beginning. Simple Accelerators Simple accelerators are accelerators that aren’t much more than a replacement clock crystal.
  • Toswin2 - Advantage MiNT

    For those of you who might follow along into my small missions, I have taken quite a bit of effort into attempting to get the very popular ConNect terminal emulator sources. Why? In my humble opinion it was the hands down best 16 color terminal program for GEM. It seemed (and still does seem) very properly programmed and tends to work in every OS or strange combination that I could ever try it in.
  • My Atari Ethernet Experience

    Getting ethernet on my Atari computers has been an unfortunately long and difficult process. It was one problem after another and I figure if anything good can come of all of this, I can warn other Atari users of the potential problems that they might have and help them to decide which solution might be best for them. My very first Atari ethernet experience involved an Asante SCSI Ethernet adapter. I bought one of these adapters from eBay just to give it a shot and see what could be done with it.
