Hi from Augsburg, Germany

Post by Mado »

Hi. My name is Martin.

I got my first Atari 520ST with about 18 years in 1985/86, now I'm 54. :-) In 2001 I started to get interested in Atari STs again and initiated the EmuTOS project. I worked on it together with some other great guys till about 2004 and was very happy to see it reaching version 1.0 in 2020.

Currently I refurbish some 520 and 1040 STs. I feel more addicted to the older models with these nice 64 DIP sockets where you can plug in so many expansions so easily.

When I program, it's mostly C or Bash. I dislike using Git so much that every time I need it, I forget again how it works. And when I do code something, it's usually something no one really needs. Maybe it's because I mostly enjoy programming more than using the software later. :-)

I live in Augsburg, am happily married, I really don't like sports at all, not even on TV. Really, not at all! I like cycling and do less and less drive car and I am also a fan of energy saving.

I dislike GIT for just the same reasons. I keep wondering why it's named after a British colloquialism for a person who is what the Americans would call "an arse hole".
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.

Maybe a reflection on the perceived ease of use? ;) :hide: :fire: :fire: :fire:
