Quote from: zhulien on Yesterday at 10:17No idea how they did this. Maybe with direct sector read/write?Quote from: Prodatron on 23:04, 01 February 23CP/M is able to do random file access.Random Access Database is an AMSDOS BASIC program with some machine code subroutines, not sure what they did as I haven't been able to get a copy. I did come across it many years ago and missed out on the ebay auction so it definitely exists.
Amsdos not at all. Until you try to introduce some hacks.
Quote from: ikonsgr on Yesterday at 23:08I agree.Quote from: leexus on 17:59, 05 February 23Maybe an RTC can be also interesting for SymbOS users, but I guess we can survive without it. :-)That would be a good idea, but maybe first we should wait for USIfAC II to be supported by symbos as compatible mass storage device
Quote from: leexus on 17:59, 05 February 23@ikonsgr John, that would be nice to add 2 more LEDs on the board to indicate read and write activity of the USB storage.It can be done of course, but to tell you the truth i find these blinking leds a bit distracting and with low ambient light they can be even annoying...
What do you think? Can this be done? Furthermore, the current USB connection LED is not visible on ULiFAC, the blue board hiding the LED light at normal light conditions. But I guess this LED is not so important since the USB connection is automatically built by the new board and its firmware.

Quote from: Gryzor on 17:28, 04 February 23Haha even ADATE is vintage now... Oh good old ADATE! Thanks for sharing your tapes btwLooking back at that, I wish I had more time to contribute to it at the time, but I wasn't the most patient person in my mid 20s so to learn something or to take the time out to do so was something quite rare. Especially that I had so many tapes but it was such a messy process to do back then. It's a lot easier to do now, thankfully.
