Klum from holland and would just like to
say ... great site. It's very easy to browse
and enjoyable to read.
Keep it up,
you, your support is greatly appreciated.
be possible for you to provide a 'Next page'
button so that readers of the Magazine could
be sure of seeing all new items and navigate
the pages in a logical way as one would
a paper based version?
redesigned the MyAtari web site a few months
ago, we considered implementing your idea
Alan but decided that it would be too time
consuming. However, every page within an
issue now includes a complete list of the
articles within the issue!
I am wonder
if there any atari hardware part supplier
in UK. I am looking for hardware like stella
chip and its CPU.
a good place to start would be the Atari
Workshop as I believe they still stock a
wide selection of original Atari hardware.
Alternatively, you could give Best Electronics
in the United States a try.
please please help me. My name is Jim and
I am a professional musician and have been
playing for some 20 years. I use an Atari
1040 Ste with Notator program and absolutely
love it. However I am unable to find anyone
with the knowledge of how to convert the
Windows Midi files to Atari Midi format.
this possible and are you able to help me.
Looking forward to your response with eagerness.
Thanks heaps in advance.
I am from Melbourne Australia. If you know
of anyone that is from there that can
help me you will reach superstar status
in my book.
you need to get hold of some a 720k DD disc.
I am reliably informed that "most"
computer disc manufacturers still make them,
so jump on the internet and have a peek
at their web sites for details on how to
get hold of some.
are unable to locate some DD/DS discs, you
may have to resort to placing some tape
over the hole on a 1.44MB HD disc... but
be warned, this may result in data loss!
have some 720k DD/DS discs, you need to
format them on your PC. It is important
to remember that although your Atari is
able to read DOS formatted discs, a PC is
unable to read Atari formatted discs. Therefore,
if you want to transfer stuff back and forth
from your PC to your ST, you must use a
DOS formatted disc.
copy the MIDI files you wish to transfer
to you newly formatted disc. Voila!
to Tim Conrardy for his advice on this matter.
A while ago,
I heard rumors of stella being ported to
the palm pilot. I was wondering if you knew
if it was true, and where i could get a
I am sorry
but it our sources cannot confirm this rumour
for you David. However, if any of our readers
know differently, please get in touch. In
the mean time, I recommend posting your
question on our forum at www.myatari.net/forum.html
What is the
mega-bus in the Mega ST line of computers
used for? and where, if available,
can I locate a pinout for it?
is a Atari specific expansion bus only found
in the MegaST range of computers. It is
now been superseded by the VME Bus in the
MegaSTE/TT. The Megabus is good for devices
such as on board SCSI, Video cards, Network
been a very long time since anybody made
anything for it, possibly because the MegaST
was barely any better than a STFM. I think
there was a card built by David Small of
Spectre GCR fame that actually added a 33Mhz
68030 for the MegaBus. Try Schematics central
for a full PCB layout.
please explain (in not too technical language)
how I can get my Falcon hooked up to the
internet? I do have a compatible modem.
What software is available and which ISPs
welcome Atari users? Yes, I am using
a PC (ugh) to ask this question.
you for your question, if any other readers
would like us to write a short tutorial
series on getting online using an Atari,
please drop us a line and we'll see what
we can do.
I am curious,
is there semi-current version of Calamus
floating about? I have version 1.09 which
was purchased many years ago (DUH!) and
would be interested in obtaining a newer
version which could support color printing
on some modern printers.
latest information about Calamus, we recommend
I would like
I have PAK
68/3 50MHz board (tested to be working prior
to installation) installed in my MegaST.
I have Marpet's X-tra RAM Deluxe memory
board with 4 MB SIMM modules fitted. However
after switching on the system, it crashes
on double-clicking on program files or booting
from hard disks. Are these two (PAK68/3
and X-tra RAM deluxe) compatible? I was
told they might be the cause of the problem!
it is possible that the timing between the
Marpet memory and your PAK board could be
the source of your problem. However, before
you blame the hardware, make sure you are
not experiencing a software glitch.
have not already done this, I recommend
running your system without any desk accessories
or AUTO folder programs. If this solves
your crashing, introduce your desk accessories
and AUTO folder programs one by one until
you find the culprit. If this does not help,
get back in touch and we'll see what we
can find out for you!
I am just
wondering if there will be a printed version
of MyAtari Magazine?
are currently no plans to produce a printed
version of MyAtari magazine however, we
are considering publishing a special annual
edition containing all the "best"
articles. More details will be posted when
how the heck do I get aMail to download
newsgroups whilst using Iconnect and Magic?
It seems to dump sum files with names like
"NN65000.???" in the requisite
directory I have configured in the "AMAIL.CFG"
I am using
send us more details regarding your setup
and I shall pass it on to our bank of experts
Do you know
where I can get that great Atari t-shirts?
that old chestnut. Atari T-shirts are now
available from several sources including
www.atari-users.net, www.dhs.nu and http://homepage.tinet.ie/~morrikar/
got a Magnum board to work with a T28 accelerator
(as is claimed it should) - in combination
with a hard disk? The DMA seems well dodgy
and reminds me very much of users reports
of the characteristics of the Marpet 8MB
RAM board. Anyone out there.......
good question... but it is better posted
on our forum at www.myatari.net/forum.html
for ATARI Falcon, and Jaguar Emulators for
the PC. Do you know if exist any of them.
as we are aware, an Atari Falcon emulator
does not currently exist for the PC, however,
a Jaguar emulator was recently started.
More details on the Jagulator emulator for
the PC can be found at www.jagulator.com
I know I'm
getting long in the tooth but how to you
hook up a 2600 when the TV I have is only
cable ready? Yes I know its a stupid
question but its been since 1985 since I
have messed with it.
I am very
sorry, but we need a bit more information
to help you. Please send us further information
ASAP and we'll see what we can do. If anyone
else can help William, please contact us
all of you!!
I found your
link on the ATARI.org site, and having checked
it out today, I had to write and make an
inquiry or two. So.....:

all truly do a >HARDCOPY< magazine?? If
so, I would like to subscribe.

scandal. Want to know more?

MyAtari is still currently an online Atari
