I can't reach Starfleet or Biker Bob's BBS either which is weird. Thought it was my ISP firewall but can't see anything odd there.
I just got home a short while ago. We've had some semi-violent winds in our area and it took
down a couple of trees and of course, utility poles (power) with them. They finally cleared
them and the power is back on now.

I should have DarkForce! back online in just a few minutes...

Thanks for calling! :)

Oh no - that's bad news. I hope all is well besides.
Something like that crossed my mind as DF is never down :dualthumbup:

Oh yeah, Spurlock Creek Road is the one that the downed trees/lines was
on, and coincidentally, the same one I have to navigate to get home. So
about a dozen vehicles were backed up on either side of the fall, waiting
for them to clear so we could get through.

Fortunately, I had my smart phone, fries and a Coke Zero with me as I had
just went through a fast food drive-thru, so I was able to kill time. :)

This month, June 2024, the DarkForce! BBS is giving away:

A SidecarT !

A multi-device emulator for the Atari ST, STE, and Mega series on Raspberry Pi Pico steroids.

SidecarT is a state-of-the-art cartridge ROM emulator crafted for the Atari ST, STE, and Mega series. It leverages the robust capabilities of the RP2040 microcontroller found in the Raspberry Pi Pico, enabling it to:

Emulate both 64Kbyte and 128Kbyte ROMs by simply loading the binary files from a microSD card or via a Wi-Fi connection.

Interact with the cartridge bus in real-time for data reading and writing, which allows for seamless emulation of devices such as floppy disks, hard disks , real-time clocks, keyboards, mouse devices, and more.

Dive into a realm of possibilities, limited only by your creativity. Thanks to its open architecture and the open-source code, SidecarT can evolve to meet any challenge you envision.

More details here:

It's a new and exciting device. Good luck to all, and thanks for calling! :)
