Re: Atari Box gets official name...

It's not looking promising, i was quite interested when they first announced it and i quite like the design but all this nonsense has put me right off it. I think it's gonna tank badly if it ever gets released at all.

Re: How to upgrade OLD 520STm from 512K - hard to find info

I have a spare 520STFM motherboard i would like to upgrade to 1040 but the RAM is surface mounted on the bottom left, and they don't look like they can be socketed It's a C103088 Board. Would it be worth doing and more importantly any idea where to get the RAM?

Re: Is it me or is there a lot of silly prices on eBay right now

Talking of silly prices but in the other direction, how about this for a cheap ST and there were three bids too! Would have easily been worth it for the Competition Pro joystick alone... Item Number: 320339279536 I know i was after the games then i fogot to check the ruddy Ebay in time and missed i...

This could of course all be a ploy by Amiga owners to get us to ruin our ST's

Re: surely this has to be an ebay pi$$ take

It's a matter of principle, self respect and respect for others. Having to clean manky goods before you can even use them can be an unpleasant experience, i.e. make you feel physically sick, and yet the people who receive from me have nothing to do when it arrives, except enjoy that is! :megaphone:...

Re: surely this has to be an ebay pi$$ take

Worse for me are the chain-smokers ... some shockingly smelly stuff has been purchased in the past. A nice parcel turns up, you open it and the box stinks of cigarettes, as do every one of the games I'll have bought. Knocks me sick for a while too. I had a similar experience a while back where the ...

Re: Falcon on Ebay.DE is it worth it?

I have been after one of these for a few years now but they always seem to be daft money. I saw that Modded Falcon on ebay last week and it was just unfortunate that i didn't have the money at the time.
They seem to be quite mythical beasts are they backwards compatible with STe's & STFM's?
