Nice find, though I hope it's functional.

What do you think resulted in the eviction of the machine above

If only someone round here would leave a Falcon 030 outside my place.

Great, you got yourself a bulky doorstop there. Even if you did hook video to it, good luck getting the floppy drive to do much of anything but diddle itself. BTW: I'd have gone back and snagged that monitor. Certainly gotta be more doors in the house, plus you wouldn't have to bugger about trying to get the thing to work with your TV or monitors.

IS this your very first ST? If so, can't wait to hear your thoughts on it after messing about a bit...

Nice.. Seeing as your in the U.K., this is probably a good option:
http://www.logicsays.com/atari/colour/docs/scart.htm

Being in the U.S. and not knowing about the missing "m" until after I found my 520STF, I have yet to see video on mine..

Not that I really feel bad about that..

The more time passes, the more fondly I remember the old adversaries. We're slowly contracting into a dull monoculture as far as everyday computing goes. The days when there were dozens of different platforms all with their unique strengths and weaknesses seemed so vibrant in comparison.

Well it has a double sided drive for sure and RGB SCART will work fine (or VGA for mono) but not composite out which is provided only on the FM too.

Well, the plan would be to get a Video->Scart connector... then see what I can do about running AROS on it :-D

No doubt, a Falcon or TT would be the bomb!!!


So is this an ST or STe? If it's an STe you can play Pac Man on E's which was by far one of the best Pac Man clones ever!

The best thing, I was on the way to the pub to see some friends... I turn up with an ST under my arm, I actually got a round of applause... my Girl Friend was all "What is that... what are you going to do with that... it's not coming in the house", I had to convince her that it was worth something...
