Wanted: ST Book / Atari ST 1040

Postby RanmaSimon » Mon Mar 13, 2017 3:15 pm

Hi to all there.

I'm Simon from Italy and I was an Atari user since December 1987.

I got my first 1040ST on that period and in 1991 I bought an STE too.

I was very happy with my ST that now I collect ST original games for dumping and preserve it.

I'm also a Sinclair QL preserver, watch our preservation program:

https://sinclairql.wordpress.com

Well my dream was always to find an ST BOOK and so I'm posting here: If someone have it one (DEU or USA or FR keyboard) I can buy it at a good price (I see that 1200$/1500$ is the standard price...).

I'm also searching for a new boxed (NEW) 1040STF (or STFM) with TOS 1.04 and 1 mega (no expansion) for play all my old titles with maximum compatibily.

A big hug to all there and If someone can help me in this adventure I woluld like to help and share all my work too.

Best regards.

P.S.: I'm also searching for PIRATES! (first edition) for ST too (original one)

You won't find an ST Book for 1200/1500. They are upwards of 2000 if not 2500 as far as I know...


On a side note, are you part of the project making QL software available to everyone, or the one trying to enforce copyright on the old stuff so he can sell it?

Well for 2000/2500€...let me see If someone would liket to sell one.

Well our preservation program is not for sell QL stuff.

Rich Mellor of RWAP is asking to all authors to give free distribution of all stuff.

We are simply dumping and make an archive of the original SW for the QL (in original format, with protection) and we have also created a 2 new programs for dump and clone the MD's after make the image for a future use (not sold).

Thanks for the interesting.

Ah yes, that's the guy I read about...
Allegedly holds the "distribution rights" to the commercial software for the QL. Not a philosophy I share for vintage computers with no commercial value. Then again, each to their own...

Well we are working on a "parallel" front.

I'm also searching for an ATARI STF 1040 new UE (UK KEYB or ITALIAN one): I would like to get in touch on my ST since 1992 when I sold it to buy an IBM PC ;)

I also used MT-32 that for ST have some titles (Sierra too) but on PC...a lot too!!!
