Best PD compilers?

You can discus menu disks by all those classic ST hack & pack teams. If you have questions, requests or remarks about hackers, packers, screens or just menu disks in general, this is the place to be!

When I recently got back all my disks off Darren Birks (guy who wrote Makedisk), I found a lot of classic compilations, including loads of "missing" ones from The Source. Trouble is, I only kept the ones that I'd compiled and/or had my packs/rips/utils on them.

As soon as I can get my system up and running to dump .MSA files to the Jaz drive, then I can get disk images transferred en masse.

Running up and downstairs with collections of 4-5 floppy disks (assuming the MSA files are small enough to fit onto 720K PC formatted disks) is not much fun at the moment.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Dr Emmett Brown said that it's the flux capacitor that makes time travel possible - well Doc, you're talking out of your arse mate! Log yourself on to Atari Forum - much the same effect but without the need to steal plutonium from bazooka wielding terrorists!!!

Ripped Off and Neon lights - both tasty morsels if my memory serves me correctly!!!


Can I please BEG bodkinz to upload the DFX disk images to AL FTP or mail them to me (see profile for addr) as both me and Divine / The Monster Beetle would really like to see them. They were rather poo as a rule so we ended up binning them but they were the first menus we managed to put together way back in our first year of high school so it would be great to see them again - not bothered whether the data is all there, just want to run the menus!

Bodkinz, you're an absolute star - I'm off to visit Divine/The Monster Beetle / HAWKEYE in a couple of weeks and he's loking forward to having a look at the DFX menus so thanks again.

Just out of interest - if they were originally in your collection, can you remember how you got them? Talking to Divine yesterday, we can't remember ever having distributed them anywhere other than at our school!

RIP Divine/The Monster Beetle - old skool Adrenalin UK

Postby mac error » Wed Oct 18, 2006 10:51 pm

Following some of the content of my previous posts on this site, I thought I should include the following information on this thread.

It is with sadness that I report the all too early passing of Divine / The Monster Beetle of Adrenalin. Divine's real name was Robert James Dentith and he died unexpectedly from a previously un-diagnosed medical problem on October 5th 2006. He was 29 years old.

After leaving the computer scene, Rob moved into the media, particularly radio and became something of a star in the midlands where his day job was chief news editor for a group of regional radio stations.

Never really being able to leave the 'underground' behind, Rob also made a name for himself in the promotion of unsigned bands and musicians, putting on numerous gigs and mini-festivals across the midlands and also presenting a weekly nationwide show on Kerrang Radio called Kerrang Unsigned.

Speaking as his best friend of almost 20 years, he will be missed greatly by myself and pretty much anyone that ever knew him.

RIP Divine!

:cry:

Although Divine was a co-founder of Adrenalin UK all those years ago I never personally met him or Mac Error although we all used to chat for hours on the Telephone (keeping it old skool ;)

I am sorry to hear of his recent death, my own father lost his battle for life earlier this year but at least he lived into his 60s. It is always terrible to hear of friends etc. that have passed way before their time. :(

My best wishes are sent to Divine's family and friends and I hope we can collect all the work he did on the ST etc. so we have something ST related to remember him by. I would like to add such content like the old ADR collection to the current http://www.adr-uk.net website some time in the future (quite busy on work related projects atm).

I would like to thank Mac Sys Data (aka Spaceman Spiff (ADR)) for bringing this post to my attention.
