Today is a mismash of things. I partnered with mytekcontrols to bring to simi-mass market his creation TK-II Stereo Bundle. Essentially it is a PS/2 keyboard/Atari 8bit interface with the added feature of a stereo Pokey feature. With the price of Pokeys rising to new heights I decided not to include the necessary 2 Pokey chips, but otherwise the bundle is complete.
Also I am testing the 3D printer files for the Ralf David reimaged Eprom Burner board. Surprisingly the XYZ Printer Pro is behaving itself for now. There’s two files, one for the bottom and one for the top portion. I’ll be printing both today (I hope) for a preliminary fit test. The bottom should take about 5hrs. Not sure how much the top will take, hopefully a few hours less since it’s only about half a inch tall. Same size as the bottom, but not as tall.
I’m also doing some testing of smaller projects that have been sitting, waiting patiently on the side. Maybe I can finally get the XF551 track display project done, a 2364 2in1 adapter. and when the board order arrives a couple of other cartridge adapters for the 1200XL and 130XE. I’ll also be working on a software/hardware mod for the eprom burner project that I hope will allow moving the disk-based software to rom. We’ll see.
On the website arena, I will begin the process of upgrading and modernizing the website theme. It’ll go on behind the scenes until it’s ready to be activated. I’m shooting for Nov 1st. That’ll be the three year anniversary.
I doubt there’ll be any major projects the rest of the year. Refinements and small projects only.
