ILS has sold out of Multiplexers! I will only build more if there is enough pre-orders! See more info under the MUX Project button.
New Hardware Purchase. I just received some new AtariMax SIO2PC devices. I have one that is designed for internal installation. The best addition is the in/out Atari SIO SIO2PC device. So many of the New Atari hardware being designed with one SIO connection. So unless you have a CSS QUINTAPUS you have no was to hook these things together. You can bet if I need to purchase any more SIO2PC's I will purchase the Dual SIO connection selection.
Spring time is almost here! Because of the amount of equipment I lost due to the last lightning strike I am not going to even try to run my internet hosting equipment during a storm. If I here THUNDER or if Where I live is under a Thunder Storm Warning. I will have shutdown all my Computer Equipment and disconnected from my DSL and phone equipment. I just have too much equipment that is not easily replaced. All 9 of my Atari 8-bit equipment has at least 20 hours of custom modification. Not to mention Atari PBI hardware that is hard to find and expensive when you do find it. So if you do not get the web site or BBS is not answering on any port it is due to Storm Warnings or an Active Storm is in progress. After the STORM has passed I will bring the system back up as quickly as I can.
After the last time I took a direct strike I had several very nice Atari 8-bit enthusiast help me get back online, It still took me 18 months to fix of replace and rebuild this web site and Internet BBS systems.
Added information on my Internet BBS System and how it works!
Added a Button to other Classic BBS that are on the internet..
I found a web counter and added to my web site. I did this so I can see how much use this web site is getting.
This web site has been designed to provide all the information I can find about the Atari 8-bit. This web site has only Atari 8-bit information and tools. I have also included tools and information that runs on the IBM clone that supports the Atari 8-bit. The Hardware projects on this web site have been built and tested by myself and I know them to work. If you are building a hardware upgrade and want it reviewed please contact me by e-mail. I have friends that are planning to do hardware reviews and I will publish them. I hope to make this web site the best in software and hardware modifications for Support of the Atari 8-bit. The only way I can make this the best is by your support. If you some cool project and want it published on this web site please contact me. To prepare a document for this web site just use Microsoft word or a similar text processor and I will turn it into an html file that follows my web site format. I have years of experience programming for the Atari 8-bit. I have built many modifications for the Atari 130xe, 800xl, and 65xe. While in the big world of computers most people would think we are crazy for spending the time we do on the Atari platform. I think we have the greatest computer platform in the world. We can make hardware modifications and then write the software to drive the modification. With the SIO2PC linking our 8-bit to the IBM clones has given us great new life into our 8-bit computers. The Greatest and I think the most powerful tool for our 8-bits is the SIO2PC and the APE software from AtariMax. One thing I want to let everyone who uses the AtariMax APE software is to make sure you register it so you have a version that can fully utilize the software capability. I say this because I have had people tell me my APE utilities in RealDos do not work when they are using an unregistered version of APE and RealDos. There is a tool within RealDos; "ape_ver" that you can run and it will tell you if you have a full version. If you get this screen when you startup APE then you have a registered version. If you want to register your ape software just click on the APE for Windows graphic. APE is a software package that runs on the IBM clone and Windows. I have setup this link as a favor to you. AtariMax and Steve Tucker own APE and I receive nothing from AtariMax for this link. While I write programs for the APE and SIO2PC (serial and USB versions) we are two different people companies. ILS is owned by Tammy Carden my wife. I am retired and just want to share the information I have learned about the Atari 8-bit. If you wish to donate to this web site send what every you can afford to send. Or by registering RealDos. If this web site does not generate enough funds for the high speed DSL connection I will have to take the web site down. I am unable to work now so I do not have a lot of cash to do anything. Out of all the dos tools I have written only 11 people have registered RealDos and I have not received anything for SpartaDos 3.3a,b,c,d. If you use SpartaDos 3.3a,b,c,d or RealDos this is software I have written or modified. I know that everyone that uses the Atari800WIN Emulator and use SpartaDos are using my siov handler I wrote. Thousands of people use it and no one has ever sent me a dim for it. I modified the siov handler in SpartaDos 3.3a to run with the multiplexer and I had no idea at the time that it would work so well with the Atari800WIN emulator. if you want a copy of the Atari800WIN Emulator and Emulator Roms Just click on each of the links.
Real.dos build 0030 is available for download in the Real.dos button!
ILS still has two basic Multiplexer for sale! Once they are gone I will only build more if there is enough pre-orders! See more info under the MUX Project button.
The Download has had many documentation files added. A lot of other information is in the download section. Here in the next few weeks I will copy my entire download section from my BBS system over to the web site.. There may be a doc you need!
