Kiss was on cartridge and MAE was on disk yes or no? never mind it's probably in the scans...

 

it is and wow...

There is quite a list of places that had the software and cartridges so would it sounds possible to find them again... You've seen the stuff turn up before.. and if you do contact people and explain the whole history/archival importance you, will probably be successful chasing it down in the end...

Yep (all noted on Atarimania), I'm the one that bumped that thread bro; I'd like to see those puppies preserved.

I am working to find dissertations and theses that involve Atari computers.

 

Here's what I have so far:

 

An Infrared Link Between Two Computers (Atari 800) with code. Interview coming.

 

Introduction To BASIC Programming: A Student Workbook For The Atari it's basically a primer on Atari BASIC

 

Teaching Of Computer Literacy Through The Use Of ATARI PILOT basically a primer on Atari PILOT

 

Array Representation Methods In APL interpreter (on Atari 800) I don't understand this, but lots of assembly code!

 

Computer Generated Surface Design And Structural Weave describes Macomber weaving software that I did an interview about. 

 

Color Vision Tests Calibrated Color Monitor and Microcomputer includes some BASIC code for color vision testing.

 

6502 related stuff that's not Atari-specific:

 

A Multi Tasking Operating System For Microcomputers he wrote an OS called QUAD3 that you've never heard of

 

An SLA Realization Of The 6502 Microprocessor

 

Purchase Of Home Computers: Children's Participation In The Decision Process And Families' Subsequent Product Satisfaction

 

More to come, I think.

More great stuff from Harry!

 

Presenting The Atari 1200

Harry Stewart told me: "Here is the outline for an internal presentation of the Atari 1200 to ???   The first two pages are the outline of the entire presentation, and the following pages contain the material that I presented.  From the looks of the material the audience must have been technical, rather than management.  The presenters were Paul Laughton, Scott Scheiman, and myself."

 
Functional Requirement Specification for a DOS 3 Disk Cleanup Utility.
 
Harry Stewart told me: "Here is a scan of a study regarding the possible addition of CP/M compatibility to Atari machines.  I don’t know/remember if there is a relationship between this and the later Sweet Pea development."
 
"Back in the day I wrote a demo program for Atari PILOT that I called Hollywood Squares.  It drew random size squares, at random locations, using random colors, and came up with some stunning combinations occasionally.  I don’t have a copy of the original, but I did try to recreate it last year from memory.  I have attached the program listing, a sample screen shot, and an .atr file that includes the program file, which is named TEMP4."

Here's the source code for Buck Rogers, from our new old friend Charlie Kulas. Who's going to be the hero to convert it to text?

 

Someone please check my work. make sure everything is legible. This is going to a museum soonish, so I want to be sure the scans are right while I have access.

Here's the source code for Up'N Down, from Charlie Kulas. I believe this is a pre-production version of the game. I have a later version as well, which I haven't scanned yet.
