Hello from germany

Post by Tom Phobos » Wed Jun 24, 2015 9:15 pm

Hi and Hallo from Germany :)

My name is Thomas and i'm a big fan of classic computers and videogame consoles. Well, actually i don't own a Dragon, but i won an auction of a Dragon 32. It should arrive this week. Then the part will start that i love when a new computer arrives: Discovering the new system :) Actually i'm a real Dragon newbie, so i hope you can give me some help, also please forgive me if i ask some stupid newbie questions ;)

OK, that's from me ... i hope tomorrow i'm a new Dragon user :)

Best wishes
Tom

Willkommen!

I wasn't a Dragon user when I was young, but got one 64 and I fell in love with it.

Don't hesitate to ask anything!

Hello, and welcome to the lair, then!

If you're already familiar with some early personal computers and how to program them, then I believe you should not find it too difficult to tackle a Dragon 32. And there's now plenty of documentation or resources available, so hopefully it will be easier for you than it used to be for most of us in the early 80's!

By the way, will you be using it with a disk drive system or a tape recorder?

Kind regards,
Lionel

Hi,
hmm, my last message wasn't approved ... next try :)

Thank you for the warm welcome :D My Dragon arrived next week, i tested it with a cable for the Atari XL (seems to have the same pins for video and audio), but the picture that it produces is not very good. So i'll try another one :)

@snarkhunter: Actually i want to use a tape recorder or MP3-player. I hope i have the chance to get a disk drive soon :) Also i would like to buy a Multicart :)
@jedie: Ah, noch jemand aus Deutschland, sehr schön :)
@Rolo: Bist Du auch aus Deutschland / are you also from germany?
