ST-Computer.org now also in English

Post by penguin »

I've recently done some changes to the website of ST-Computer magazine. As some might or might not know, the website is not only the place to download past and current issues, but it also features Atari news, exclusive downloads and a link directory.

Because there's no other news website that's somewhat up to date, I've decided to also offer an English version of the website. Just go to https://www.st-computer.org/en

This is still a WIP, older (2000+) news articles and the dictionary have not been translated yet. The magazine itself is also German-only except for one issue obviously...

Wow! Thanks! Great news section!
Any plans on making the magazine itself also available in English?

Great initiative. And I love the old-school design of the site (which makes it somewhat modern, ironically). Thanks!

Edit: by the way, I had no idea you had released so many programs. Is SpareTIME downloadable somewhere?

Sure, finish Willie's Adventure and then I'll make the mag available in English :wink:

Unfortunately due to lack of time, authors and feedback, an English version is unlikely.

Are you planning any new issues of the magazine for 2021?

The HTML code and the news articles were rescued from an Archive.org snapshot, so for the most part this is what the site looked like way back in 2003 when it went offline. There's some CSS and social media stuff added, but it's still a table-based layout and should work in Atari browsers (not tested). The default design will be changed at some point but the classic theme will always be available (and up-to-date) via a subdomain.

Most of my apps were ports or just not very remarkable. I do intend to make spareTIME available again, but I had trouble compiling it (Pure C crashed) and I want to remove the shareware code.

Would be possible to add a link to this forum "www.atari-forum.com"?
Ironically there is a link to Amiga Future but no Atari-Forum.com :)
And I see "FreeMiNT Project website" link is a bit broken - it has some html tags.

Anyway great website and also cool instagram: https://www.instagram.com/stcomputermagazine/

Not sure what I was thinking - especially with Yaronet added but not Atari-Forum. Amiga Future is there because the publisher of ST-Computer used to have an Amiga magazine too, so I just replaced one magazine (Amiga Plus) with the other ;) No relationship though between STC and AF.

Instagram is a great addition, it would be shame to just leave all those photos on my harddrive ;)
