"SIO2Pi = Atari 800 + Raspberry Pi"

Come see how I stuck wires into things to load disk images onto an Atari 800 from The Internet


@lmorchard Wow, that is really cool. Atari 8Bit machine have been my love for the longest time. Even have a Black Box that did modem and SCSI stuff with my Atari 800XL. Maybe I need to build one of these to get more fun out of the ol' Atari.

@craigmaloney Yeah, I mean I know I wrote a big long blog post around it, but the little device is super simple to build

@lmorchard Well, I have yet to learn to solder so that's one rather large hurdle that I have yet to overcome. :)

@craigmaloney It also helped to get a nicer soldering iron - I tried for years with some cruddy $15 radio shack thing that was literally flaking off corroded metal and wondered why things were so hard >_<

@lmorchard I picked up a radio kit w/ soldering iron from Microcenter but I'm afraid to fire it up for fear that Pixel (our cat) will get into it. Have your cats gotten into your soldering projects?

@craigmaloney Oh yeah, cats are all over my projects if I don't stick them into boxes when I'm not working on them :) Right now we have a door on part of the basement where my work bench is, so that's off limits to cats for now

@craigmaloney Yeah, I should try making it out, I've been in a deeper hermiting phase for the last year or so than usual
