Re: The last MIST

Thanks Till, for making one of the best products I own (and I own a lot). I don't blame you at all for getting out of it. I got more out of this than I ever expected.

Thanks for taking us along for the ride!

Re: uip-tool

I'm seeing the program start up and immediately die off..I'm guessing my problem is also RAM. It's a 1MB 520ST running on TOS 1.04. No way to make it run on lower memory machines?

I absolutely agree. The on-board serial is one of the features I use most in the Amiga core.

Re: MIST 1.3 plus

I make a lot of use of the on-board serial lines in the Amiga core, but it looks like they addressed the usb power connector, which really needed to happen.

Re: USB missing power when using DC jack?

I use one of these highly regulated, high-power supplies. I use one of these USB-barrel cables to connect to one of the ports on it.

I've been running this way for a couple of years and it works really well for powering the MIST, plus gives you 4 more USB power plugs for other things.

Re: Mist, Pi Zero networking

I sort of did this with mine with an older Pi 1 , though I just use it as straight serial connection for BBSing, acting as a terminal to Linux machines (mostly other Pis) and doing Zmodem transfers. I did dabble with passing PPP, etc over it, but for my purposes it was too slow that way to be usefu...

Re: MIST power input connector, the sequel

So... now it's my turn to have lost the USB connector :( I was showing my MiST to friends and must have inadvertently put too much pressure on the cable, and it lifted the part off the board. I would like to put a barrel connector, but I don't have the machinery to drill the hole in the case. Maybe...

Re: Stuck keys

Parsing all the complex possible keyboard types that exist in the USB world is difficult. Fortunately all keyboards support a so called boot mode.
