I've put your link to the lataest YouTube vid on my fb page. If everyone could do that, you would get plenty of coverage, fairly quickly

There's fax software on Aminet which, although it's for OS 3.x, might work with Petunia

Are you confusing this with the OS 3.1.4 just released?

@Elwood

There are posts on www.instructables.com where people build DLP (projector) or SLA (laser) resin vat printers for less than $100. I think the biggest cost is the DLP - but I got one for free!

You have a 3D printer , but it's a deposition printer, i.e. uses a melted filament to build up the item onto a substrate. Slow and looks a little grainy unless you have one with a really high resolution.

Have you looked at the type where you build up the item by repeated dipping into a tank of UV curable liquid polymer? (CLIP - Continuous Liquid Interface Production)

More expensive to set up but possibly cheaper in the long run to do larger runs.

Check out https://www.ted.com/talks/joe_desimone ... d_printing_was_25x_faster

This guy prints a hollow 3D ball in less than 10 minutes. His model uses a special glass which is oxygen permeable but there are other ways, mainly where a platform dips into a tank, raises, say, 200 microns to allow the liquid to flow back under the platform, then goes back down 100 microns for each layer.

@xenic

I know what you mean and agree with you but you could install Linux on your machine and use the browsers available for it.

And yes, if that's all you would use the machine for, that's a very expensive Linux box

Try one of these wifi-N dongles. I have one on my A1XE, working fine, and only a tenner.

Re: Anyone fitted an SSD in their XE?

@nbache

Sorry for the slow reply but you are,of course, correct. I copied the SLB over to, first of all Libs, then realised my mistake, then to System:L.

My mistake originally was to rename DH0: to System: after I had told Media Toolbox to copy SLB to DH0:

For ages, I've had to watch my A1XE thrash the HDD trying to find the SLB. Or if I've powered down, I've probably crashed the heads into the platters.

Nice to have the old girl running again. Just got to rebuild everything now!

@Old Amigan

I've now booted and rebooted my A1XE several times, left it switched off for a couple of days then rebooted and so far, no problems.

I've also fitted a second RAM module, so I'm running on 756Mb of any-old-RAM without problems. The battery is quite old, maybe a couple of years and still no problems.

I'll now start to refit the PCI boards I used to have - SoundBlaster, Sil something-or-other and move the graphics card (a 9250??) to the high speed slot and see how it all goes.

@OldAmigan

I was, as stated, about to buy a SATA converter and SSD or HDD but I saw a post about DOM (Disk On Module) drives. These are essentially a flash card or SD or whatever in a module with either a PATA or SATA connection.
The upshot is, I bought one (64Gb) and plugged it on to my on-board IDE connector and installed OS4.1FE onto it.

It didn't boot!!!

After a few minutes, I saw that, as usual, it hadn't recognised the SLB.

I guess my brain woke up at that so I booted from the CD and copied the SLB from the CD to Sys: Libs and rebooted - success!

I have no idea why I never thought of that before but I also have no idea why, after setting up the HDD in Media Toolbox, it wouldn't see it anyway.

Really, I know that it's long been assumed that Amiga users should be a bit more computer savvy than most but why shouldn't the OS installer take care of that?

@Kicko

Someone over on AW suggested I might still have to use a HDD to boot from.

Seems strange but I wouldn't know. Did you find this?

@musashi5150

Thanks, musashi5150.

I've decided I'm going to first try a PATA - SATA adaptor and see how it goes.

A number of people over on AW seem to have had good results with SSDs.

Re: UAE Install looking for OS

@elchucko

Have you told E-UAE to look for Amigaos XL?

If, instead, you open the AF CD and navigate to Amiga Files > Shared > dir, there you will find Sys and Work directories.

Sys contains the OS and Work contains Documentation, and Software. You will also find a file called Disk.info - that's the icon file for that disk (Work). You will find this file also in Sys but it contains information relevant to Sys.

You will also need to tell E-UAE where to find the necessary ROMs (Amiga Files > Shared) for the machine you wish to emulate.You can copy them to a directory in E-UAE. Include also the rom.key file.

It may be easier to download something like Amikit or Amigasys,which are fully configured pre-built high end systems.

Best of luck.

Hi folks,

After a long time of (sporadically) trying to get my A1XE back working and damaging HDDs, I'm thinking of going down the road of a SIL 3114 PCI card and an SSD.

Has anyone gone down this road? Areb there any pitfalls?

Absolutely crazy. I'd love a big box Amiga but £1120 for a 30 year old computer with only the OS and the seller couldn't even guarantee it was working!
