Re: Does it fit? (PicoPSU + CT60e.)

Interesting. I could test it out here if I could find a 15.5mm spacer, since I already have the PicoPSU. I'll see if I can find / make one. I mean it really is a tight fit now, and I feel like I'd be forcing the screws into place, but 1.5mm smaller, it may just have enough clearance to fit right. I ...

Re: Does it fit? (PicoPSU + CT60e.)

Ha, that is what I was thinking, that it was a mm too high. Gonna have to track one down. Granted I can't get full functionality with the top on unless I mangle the back to fit the DVI /VGA cable out if the SuperVidel. This was more if an exercise for seeing if I got the right size for other people.

Does it fit? (PicoPSU + CT60e.)

In a different thread about fitting a CF card into a Falcon, we went a bit off topic and were discussing fitting the top of the case on with a PicoPSU. http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=32744&p=334113#p334113 The PicoPSU I'm using ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0045WFZSQ/...

Re: A good place for CF card on Falcon?

Hmm, okay now I am going to try to see if it bends it, because I don't think it was. The top of the heatsink is pretty much flat with the PicoPSU, and they both sit a tad bit higher than the memory stick. Looks like it's 7/8 of an inch (that sticks out of the ATX socket) 20171212_122249.jpg Edit: So...

Re: Modern OS-es, pros and contras, experiences with ..

Ha, yeah that is exactly it. I didn't really think it should move forward . Once it is ported, then dissected and made 'modern', it would probably become just as bloated as other operating systems. To me, Debian is the most useful operating system around. But I do like my beefed up Falcon, and one d...

Re: Modern OS-es, pros and contras, experiences with ..

Yeah, the best one could hope for, in my opinion, for TOS/GEM to move forward would probably be something like AROS, where they are reverse engineering the 3.1 version of Amiga workbench on x86, then having an emulation layer in place for legacy software.

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

There is Exxos and some guys on the dosbox forums that made replacements that are low profile and take a CR1012 (I think, it is a smaller coin battery than the standard 2032 most CMOS uses. Exxos' store says he is sold out though.
