Huh, never noticed this bag of #atari fun in the old parts box!
More specifically, I despise my #NeXT cube, and my patience for my #Atari TT030 has basically run out. Also, the power supply on this big, 'ol VAX 4000 is screwed up and the #Alpha is just useless. I feel like putting them all on the curb would make me happier.
And no, you can't have them for free...
I inquired about a used, first-run, caseless #firebee #atari clone on a forum that was for sale. USD 550 seems a bit steep, basically their price new, but the forum wouldn't allow me to reply anyway, so I couldn't tell him/her "no."
I have to keep reminding myself to stay away from the #atari stuff. I'm not a fan of a large portion of the "community."
Some thoughts on my #Atari TT030
Nice addition to the office #atari
On a whim, I tried popping my old Bt848 PCI capture card in my semi-modern i5 desktop. Lovely to see that it still works! #atari
Well, CMake didn’t even configure on the #atari, so it is losing its spot on the desk for a while. Back to storage!
If all that worked, a GEM Mastodon client based on nanotodon would be neat to try, but I'm not even close at this point.
I'm trying to build CMake on the #atari TT030 overnight, and I'm not hopeful. I've had nothing work on it lately (broken GNU Fortran, problems building IRC clients, a freakin' mess of a network config, etc.), so I'm probably going to break it down and throw it back in the closet when this inevitably fails too.
Once I forget about these problems in a year or two, maybe it'll get some precious desk space again.
But CMake might build...
The #atari TT030 has been trying to build CMake for maybe 15 hours now...
