Re: Three Sparrow Mainboards on EBay

I mean, is it useful outside the Sparrow motherboard, and how does it compare visavis TOS 2.06 and TOS 4?

What about that TOS 2.07 the seller mentions?

A lot more. I think the original one was named "EyeFi".

There already are SD cards with such functionality for photographers who need to upload their photos immediately. They're even cheap.

I believe Miggy4eva has already been banned from English Amiga Board. His ramblings aren't taken seriously over there either.

How stupid of me, I never thought of that. SLIP already seems to implement its own internal flow control instead.

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

If the firmware could be upgraded to support CSLIP, a bit more performance could be squeezed out. Since the firmware uses lwIP as its network stack, that would require CSLIP support in lwIP, which isn't in there. And my knowledge of network protocols isn't so extensive that I could easily add this....

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

Is there any ST machine that can go that far? I think the highest speed serial port I have is a theoretical 460 kbps on an Amiga IOblix card.

Re: EPROM programmer for the Atari ST?

Now that's really surprising, I thought you would have found an MCS-51 family microcontroller or something in there, and certainly I expected a large RAM as well that code would be downloaded into / read into on the way between the PROM / EPROM / ROM and the computer. As far as I remember, just lot...

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

Note that if you make sure that the module connects to your Wifi network before you change the bit rate, in case of problems you can still use Telnet from another computer in your Wifi to login and reset the module. I've added this information to my website, as it was recently pointed out to me by ...

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

I've only run it at 19200 bps so far. There is a certain danger in upping the serial speed too far since you won't be able to login to set it back otherwise. Well, I would because I have all manners of hardware, but other users wouldn't. It would be nice if the firmware supported setting the speed w...

I know that there is a patched version of ACCESS.EXE that works under Windows XP. I personally run mine on a pizza-slice Pentium. Do you have a link to that patched version, or would you mind attaching it to a post here? (If allowed). http://matthieu.benoit.free.fr/hilosystem_all-07_universal_progr...

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

I built one of these today. Worked perfectly on the first attempt thanks to Czietz's firmware. Managed to cram it all into a 5x3 cm casing by desoldering the connectors on the 5 V adaptor board and solder-mounting all pieces with some added hot glue. Haven't tried it on my ST yet, but it worked fine...

Depends on the socket. I can literally lift my A600 by the socket of its Furia 020 accelerator card.

I have an old one from REX Datentechnik. Connects to the cartridge port. But I don't use it since I've got an ALL-07, the prince of EPROM programmers.

Re: help to replace ribbon cable and other faults

This is how I would do it: 1. Remove as much of the original connector as possible, i.e. remove top of connector and cable, cut up the remaining plastic with a plier into small pieces. 2. Desolder. You can speed up desoldering by administering a lot of solder on the bottom of the PCB and heat it usi...
