Nice collection niki!

I started quite late, in about 2004-2005 with a 260 ST (yes!) and a non-functioning floppy drive (the belt had snapped, I think). I did have a color monitor though. I just sat there and looked at the desktop for hours!

Then I got a 520 STFM with lots of floppies from my uncle. What amazing joy. I made the mistake of letting an acquaintance borrow the computer and I never saw it again.

Years later, in about 2010-2011, I got myself a 520 STFM with 1 MB RAM. And then a 1040 STFM in 2020. Currently enjoying games and applications on my Samsung Hitron Black CRT TV through the RF modulator and with a perfectly working floppy disk drive. For me, loading programs via the FDD is essential to the Atari experience. That's why I also got the SuperCard Pro in 2021 so I can enjoy preserving and restoring original disks too.
520 STFM w/ 1 MB RAM and tons of floppies with Automation menus on them. What joy!
