2191  Retro Computing / Atari 8 bit computers / Atari Party in Davis, CA, March 29 (fwd) on: March 14, 2009, 10:36:17 AM
--------------------Forwarded message--------------------------

From: Bill Kendrick    
Date: Mar 7, 2009

We're on a roll with planning for Atari Party 2009 here in Davis!

http://www.newbreedsoftware.com/atariparty/

We've got a 2600, 7800, 800, 800XL, Jaguar, 3 Lynxes and a 520ST (as well as an Atari Flashback II and TV Paddle Games), which will all be
running simultaneously! Expect to see Tempest 2000 and Star Raiders up on a video projector. Smiley We'll also have some educational displays (specs on the systems, "how do sprites work?", etc.), as well as some guest speakers!

* Paul Cubbage, manager of Atari Program Exchange back in 1982-1984, will be doing a short presentation on APX and Atari (before 'the fall').
* Lx Rudis, creator of music on countless Atari Lynx titles, will talk about his work on Lynx games.  (Still waiting to confirm whether he can make it)
* Yours truly, creator of the homebrew Atari XL game "Gem Drop", will talk about "Super IRG" graphics mode used in the game, and other software-driven graphics modes.

I'm also happy to welcome other speakers, so if you want to come talk for a few minutes at this event (or know someone who might be able
to make it), please let me know!

This event is free and open to the public.  Children are welcome (but please keep an eye on them!)

When:
  Saturday, March 28th, 2009
  6pm to 9pm

Where:
  Davis Public Library
  315 East 14th St
  Davis, California USA 95616

...they did have an advert for soemone selling westridge modems for $40. I wish I had done so then as when I did get a modem a couple years later I paid just over $100 for a 300 baud pocket modem.
     My Westridge 300-baud modem was free.  Smiley

Robertbe, I deliberatly avoid putting this information on usenet because of the huge number of scammers, spammers and kooks out there. I definately DO NOT want my email posted on usenet.
     I was talking about informing people of Retro-link.com

I'd like to know more about this setup.
     My dial-up shell account with Iglou.com makes it all possible.  Others use the dial-up shell accounts on the more national Eskimo.com or sdf.lonestar.org   What else would you like to know?

2199  Retro Computing / News and Events / uIEC update v 0.8.0 (fwd) on: March 12, 2009, 08:17:59 AM
------------------------------Forwarded message----------------------------------
From: Jim Brain     
Date: Mar 11, 7:02 pm

I have placed the formal 0.8.0 firmware release on jbrain.com for the  2.0 uIEC/IDE+CF, 2.3 uIEC/IDE+CF, all uIEC/CF units and all uIEC/SD units.  Here are the relevant links:
 
uIEC/CF, uIEC/IDE+CF v2.0 HW, uIEC/IDE v2.3 HW:
http://www.jbrain.com/pub/cbm/hw/uIEC/uIEC-firmware-0.8.0.bin

uIEC/SD HW           
http://www.jbrain.com/pub/cbm/hw/uIEC/uIEC3-firmware-0.8.0.bin

To use, place the appropriate file in the root directory of the primary drive (on uIEC/IDE, it will be the IDE master drive), and reboot your unit.

v 0.8.0 supports the following enhancements:
 
        - direct sector access of the real storage device
        - ignore DEL files in file_open
        - drive mapper
        - EXOS V3 fastloader support
        - Implement Dreamload emulation
        - RTC support
        - Multi-file scratch
        - Copy command
        - Large buffer support
        - Final Cartridge 3 freezed file fastloader support
        - D71/D81 disk image support
        - parse FSINFO sector for faster FAT32 free space calculation
        - partial REL file support
        - SD support for uIEC/IDE+CF

I encourage folks to upgrade their units to 0.8.0 as soon as possible. Many uIEC/SD and recent uIEC/IDE users have 0.8.0PRE1 on their units, but that is an interim release and should be replaced with this bugfixed release.

The C128 autoboot bug has also been fixed, though it was not an issue with the code.  I accidentally left some debugging turned on in the firmware, and the timing issues caused the bug.

Jim

      Members of comp.sys.atari.8bit, comp.sys.atari.st, comp.sys.apple2, and comp.sys.tandy have been informed.  Smiley

Of course, doing so would preclude using this forum... Undecided
     I don't understand.  I'm posting this message right now
with the use of my C128DCR, Turbo232, Desterm 2.01, and shell
account with Lynx text browser.

2204  Retro Computing / Collecting and History / Re: First modem. on: March 12, 2009, 05:25:39 AM
     My first modem was a Westridge 300 modem which I used with BobsTerm Pro 128.  With proper tweaking of BT Pro, it was supposed to be able to get up to 450 baud.  Then I graduated to a Commodore 1670 1200-baud modem.  What a speed increase!  Up next was the Aprotek Minimodem-C24 2400-baud modem.  With that modem I went to Desterm 2.01.  Now I am up to a Zoom 56K external modem, Turbo-232 cart, and still Bobsterm Pro 128.  The C128DCR downloads very nicely now.

     At yesterday's SCCAN meeting Joe M. showed me his fully-software-optioned A1200, courtesy of a software package which he calls System1200.  It is a bunch of absolutely necessary utilities which gives you such things as MUI, dearchivers, screensavers, etc..  Joe says, "Just go to your hard-drive's root folder and unzip this. "  As soon as you unzip it, it automagically places all utilities in the proper folders in your hard drive.  I know that the System1200 package works with OS 3.9.  I don't know about A1200's with OS 3.0-3.5.
