Hi, I do not remember where I found this video: It is demonstration of Voice recognition technology by Atari in 1982. If someone have more information about this video and presented technology, please do share :) I can only refer to Howard Rheingold and his great " Tools For Thought " arti...

Re: The FPGA and non-Atari cores deserve the cover of this forum?

Sure it's easy, but any change very likely damages the ability for automatic upgrades and thus seriously increases the maintenance effort to keep the forum clean regarding patches . Have seen forums that needed days and weeks for upgrades instead of hours just because of a 'few cosmetic changes'. I...

Now, I don't know if it is possible, but maybe it is something that maybe the developers of the phpBB software can look at introducing in the future. What am I on about? My idea is to have multiple 'Active topics" pages. This is the answer! :) (in part) It should not be hard to make this multi...

I really dislike to see first 5 RECENT TOPICS polluted with FPGA stuff. I occasionally open atari-forum.com just to see 5 recent topic and almost always I see 5 topics about FPGA in "recent topics". And I am not interested in FPGA at all. There is no need to prohibit anything, just move th...

Re: The end of Calamus: invers Software closes on March 31, 2018

Sad... :( I love Calamus. It was super advance and easy program to use back in 80s and 90s. Unfortunate I did not use it on PC or Mac (I go with Adobe and I was watching as Adobe gradually add stuff from 10 years old Calamus to new InDesign!). That being sad, I still use Papyrus on PC and Mac, never...

As I understand MagicMac is same as Magic for Atari plus Atari hardware emulator. If this is true, then this could be modified and compiled for ...

Re: Noobs use C, real programmers use Basic

It does depend what you mean by object orientation, but it's possible to do some pretty OO stuff in assembly language. I use structs all the time in assembly, and if you have a group of subroutines for manipulating a struct (including allocating / destroying data structures) then you really have th...

Re: New SuperVidel & some ideas for future development.

Regarding Falcon original video output: would be possible to attach e.g. Commodore 1084 analog monitor? I prefer to watch demos and play games on CRT 15KHz monitors.
