This software will help you transfer software to your classic Macintosh (e.g. MacOS System 6, 7, 68k Macs, etc) using the serial port. Very simply, this software runs on a modern host computer, and behaves like a BBS would back in the day. You connect your Macintosh to the host computer using serial, and then, using your vintage computer, you can search and download files from online archives (e.g. Macintosh Garden, Mac Repository). However, this "BBS" has only one user, you!
I don't see why you couldn't use this pseudo-BBS to transfer software to other kinds of computers as well.
A portable, open-source 8086 PC emulator for bare metal Raspberry Pi. Boots as its own OS as you'd expect but emulates a MS-DOS machine from the silicon up. Emulates the 8086 and 80186 processor cores. Does CGA, EGA, and VGA graphics. Still in the early stages.
A curated list of references for development of DOS applications.
This is the PSU board for all your retro modding needs like making a GameBoy Zero with any of the Raspberry Pi products and it’s Clones like Orange Pi, Banana Pi etc, it has even powered Robots. This board has all the features the modding community wants and needs for their build into a small and powerful package. Outputs up to 6A @ 5.20v. i2c enabled, so the power cells can be monitored.
DroiD64 is a graphical file manager for the contents of D64, D67, D71, D80, D81, D82, D88, T64 and LNX files. Examine your disk images in a fine-grained way to see what's in there.
Cyber1.org is a group of people dedicated to the preservation of the world's first computer-based community, PLATO.
PLATO is a computer-based educational system created at the University of Illinois Control Systems Laboratory. The idea was first discussed at the University in 1959, in a long series of meetings led by Chalmers Sherwin. At these meetings it was concluded that computer-based education should not be pursued. However, the director at the time, Daniel Alpert, got together with Donald Bitzer to see if Don could quickly come up with a prototype that could serve as proof-of-concept. This prototype, running on an Illiac-I, became PLATO. The project was subsequently funded in 1960 by government money from the Joint Services Program. The lab grew and became the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory (CERL). PLATO eventually spawned a variety of commercial ventures, starting in 1975 with Control Data Corporation (CDC), a mainframe computer manufacturer founded in 1957.
IRATA.ONLINE is provided for the benefit of retro-computing users to have a place to socialize, and develop interesting multi-user, interactive, and graphical games and social applications. It descends from the historical PLATO system, a massive time-sharing system that lasted from 1962 until NovaNET was closed in 2015. More than a BBS but a bit less than a commercial computing service.
Multiuser. Graphical, so it requires its own cross-platform software. Online games, social network, realtime chat, online development of new applications for the service in a language called Tutor. Has its own client software, PTERM.
Supports PLATO clients for all of the 8-bit retrocomputers out there, the Atari and Commodore in particular.
Has Novaterm 10 available for download.
Commodore BBS telnet listing. Even has an API.
An online retailer that sells hard to find parts, upgrades, new peripherals, and software for 8-bit computers, including Commodore, Atari, Apple, and some consoles.
Welcome to the Atari FTP Archive! We're glad to see you enjoy the best computer ever. We are striving to archive as much atari/8bit/demoscene related material as possible and we're doing it since 2002 (previously known as ftp.atari.art.pl). The archive is around 845GB in 938689 files at the moment (11.12.2018).
