to my website dedicated to retro videogames and computers.
Currently the site under construction
and is definitly not perfect. If you find any misstakes or errors in it
I would appreciate if you made me aware of it.
My intentions with this site is simply
to share my ideas, thoughts and any products that comes out of the
experimenting that I do. Currently there is not much here but as time
pass by you will certainly find more information.
If you came here for information about the XBoard click
bought my first Atari800
computer with 2 Atari810
diskdrives in 1982, which was a major upgrade from the Acorn
Atom I had been using for a couple of years. Imagine having 2 diskdrives
capable of randomly accessing all 85KBytes instead of constantly saving
and loading from a tape cassette player.
I remember even writing a database
utility for the Atom that could read and write data to the tape, you
just had to rewind the tape for each search in the database *hehe*,
those were the days.
Anyway, the 800 was to me the answer to
all prayers I had.
But the Acorn machine really tought me the basics on how computers
work with all the nitty gritty details of bits and bytes, assembler
instructions memory access times, baud rates, relays, transistors.....
Come to think of it, if it hadn't been for the Acorn, I would probably
not be in the business at all. So here's looking at you.
And Yes, I still have my old Acorn Atom
computer, and yes it works.
I did however sell my Atari 800. Funny
how it goes, I still remember the day and the woman that bought it for
her kids to play with. I also remember thinking, "Phew, never
thought anyone would by that piece of junk". So now the circle has

Finally got around to working a bit on the 800 in an FPGA. Updates here.
Again did some updates to the RAMCart pages.
Did some updates to the RAMCart pages, check them out here.
I have had a few questions about shipping for the XBoard and I would
like to inform that it is USD$10.00 world wide. Shipping is added to the
cart at checkout time. If you live in Sweden it will be cheaper so
contact me directly for more information.
