One question to the people who have claimed the Falcon is being produced in
Iraq:  If this is true, then how do they get past the total trade embargo
placed on Iraq by the United Nations?

Methinks they're not being made there...

Oh, I'm afraid you have been misinformed. They're being made in Libya :-)

Hey, that's "EE-RAHK" not "AYE-RACK"!  Saddam only gives people ONE
CHANCE to pronounce it correctly!

The "truth" is that the Al Rashid hotel was not actually struck by an errant
cruise missile... the damage was caused by some dweeb in the lobby who powered
up an Iraq made 110v Falcon on 220v ac and the DSP blew!!!

And if you believe THIS, I've got some prime beachfront property in New
Mexico you might be interested in!  :)

It would seem *very* unlikely!

I'm 99.9% sure they aren't!  Besides, think of the huge shipping &
transport costs that would be involved! 8-)

I know that this is wasted bandwidth in some people's opinions, but I just
wanted to thank all of the people that answered some of my recent questions
posted here.  Even with all of the bickering and such going on, it's nice to
have a GREAT resource like this to get going with my computer.  I had put my
1040ST on ice for a couple of years because I had no support what-so-ever
where I live, and this group has given my computer new life!

ps...as long as I'm here, I'll ask another silly question:

        On the panel of my computer it says "Atari 1040ST" and then there is
        a tiny letter "f" right next to the 1040ST.  What does this mean?

That's quite true. And the Falcons  have  been  stockpiled  there
until  recently. Then, Atari decided to ship them on supertankers
throughout the world, for reasons of cost effectivity  since  the
quantities  were  so  large. Unfortunately, two of the shops have
gone wreck, hence the worldwide shortage...

Hi folks,

I'm desperatly in search of a solution for my problem.
At home I'm running a 486/33 with 16mb as an ISC-Unix box.
But still there is my old atari-st with 1mb and a 50 mb harddisk,
tied to my unix-box via rs232, using 19200 baud. so far, so good.

Using uniterm or any other terminal-soft it is possible to use the
atari-harddisk for sources or seldom used resources.
BUt this solution is not perfect. It must be possible to access the
ataris HD directly from the AT, but how.
Something like a NFS should it be.
So here my question to you atari-wizards (hope there are some):

Is there any PD-soft (or cheap soft) which covers my needs ??

_ANY_ help will be appreciated.

answer via email, please. I'll post a summary, if desired.

Thanks in advance   Thomas

F=Floppy.  It means the computer has an internal Floppy Drive, instead
of the external which the previous model had!
M=Modulator, means the machine has an RF-Modulator built in
E=enhanced.  (STE).  Extra paletter, Blitter, DMA, etc. etc.

 Well there is several solutions to that. You could always take the
 hard disk out of the Atari and install in the 486 machine but this
 would cripple a great machine.

 We had a simular sort of think here where we wrote a serial server
 for the megas. However it was not perfect and tended to be a bit
 unreliable.

 There is several other systems tried ka9q for slip? you could batch
 the slip requests ?
