Re: Atmos/Microdisk - ghost in the machine!?!?!?

About the low-level copy program - my CopyPlus can do it! It's unfinished because I wish to integrate formatting functionality too which was difficult to debug ... 'til 10 day ago when @christian (aka assinie) committed read/write track implementation for Oricutron(!) - it works well so I can finis...

Re: Atmos/Microdisk - ghost in the machine!?!?!?

I still have a PC with 3" disk drive attached but gave up trying to make a 3" disk of FT-DOS for someone a few years ago (after something like 15 tries, drive change, and so on). I do think it's time we save the remaining 3" disks (especially originals), and give up using 3" disks. Drives are failin...

Re: Erebus Batch November 2019

If I'm not mistaken (all from memory): - the microSD card has to be formatted in FAT16, so the maximum is 2GB - you must avoid SDHC and SDXC models, which have a different hardware to allow much bigger storage - the current Erebus version "only" accepts 512 entries on the root of the card - if you u...

Re: Erebus Batch November 2019

Ok, just tested the beast with an old 2GB Sandisk card. It works like a chram! :D 8) Of course I tried twisted things like a program using STORE/RECALL :mrgreen: (which failed, but Kenneth already explained that IIRC). The box is really nice, and the chips are not directly soldered on the card, so t...

Re: Erebus Batch November 2019

There are packs of 10 small 128MB microSD cards on Amazon.
Since the card is limited to 512 files on root, I suspect 512 TAP files won't fill 128MB.

Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

But one challenge to this is that the CEO isn't readily available in machine-readable form. Or, is it? Well it's PDF, so just as Dbug stated, I think (but haven't tried) that you could have some help from automatic translators. A few articles are re-publications of old magazines, and can be fully s...

Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

Well in the late 90s, it appeared that nobody had time to translate articles anymore (from French to English or English to French). So the CEO decided to publish the articles in their original language. If I'm not mistaken, at the same time, some people in UK managing the magazine stopped without wa...

CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

Hi all, When I did John S. Sinclair interview a few months ago, the idea was to send it first to the Club Europe Oric (CEO) magazine, and later on to share it beyond the Club. The man being probably the best-selling Oric author, his interview deserved being shared with all Oric enthousiasts. Here we...

Re: OUM magazine scans...

Thanks for that. I've not been able to get the other issues to load so your direct links are perfect. You're welcome, glad someone enjoyed it and could be back on track to finish old projects ;) Regarding the download, I'm just using the forum storage area. I also had trouble with Omelette's previs...

Re: OUM magazine scans...

Here's OUM 116 :)
Sorry, some pages were not aligned correctly by the automatic scanner. I couldn't try a 2nd time as I wasn't supposed to monoploize the professional scanner/printer for this.

Re: OUM magazine scans...

Stupid question but I can't recall if we have Dave Dick's blessing for having all this up online? I saw Dave not long a few years back when he visited the Canaries and didn't seem to have any issues with Oric-lovers spreading the word in any way possible. I'd place my hamster's life that Dave won't...

Re: Software ORICAID by MICROGRAF Help Archive

Regarding tape transfers, MP3 is not the way to go. The best (speaking for myself here) is recording at 44kHz, stereo, 8-bits. Stereo because having right and left channels gives two more chances to have a good recording. 44kHz and 8-bit because that's the format the conversion tools are waiting for...

Re: Software ORICAID by MICROGRAF Help Archive

Hi there,

Actually, I had the transfer done since 2012.
It's now all up on Oric.org ;)
