Welcome to

The Joe Forster/STA homepage


This is the homepage of Joe Forster/STA, the author of The Star Commander and other software. No personal data here, because I don't think you would be interested; let my software speak about me instead. The main purpose of this whole site is to give you useful Commodore- and PC-related information and software, especially, related to transferring and converting data between Commodores and PC's.

Offline browsing

If you'd like to read the information on this site offline, download the HTML pages and pictures in a single ZIP archive (about 2.3 Megabytes). Note that no software, available on the site, is included in the package so you will get a "404 File not found" or similar error if you try to download them while browsing offline.

Language availability

In general, all pages on this site are available in English only. On some pages, you may find links to unofficial translations, created by others. If you need translations in other languages (including but not limited to German and Hungarian) or translations of other pages, please, don't ask the author of this site as he won't be able to provide them. Instead, if you find some information on this site useful enough, it would be nice if you translated them to your favorite language yourself and sent the author of this site a link to the translation. Thank you in advance.

Browser compatibility

All pages are friendly to all browsers: no frames, no style sheets, no redundant images, no Java or Javascript, no audio or video plugins needed. Also, steps, including HTML trickery, were taken to allow text-based browsers to display tables properly. Other than these tricks, all pages have been validated against the "HTML 4.01 Transitional" standard. Photos are in 640x480 pixel, 24-bit true color JPG format; drawings are in 16 color PNG format, with a transparent background color, and, with only a few exceptions, don't exceed the size of 320x200 pixels.
