I used both AtariWriter and a pirated (no dongle required) version of PaperClip as a high school kid circa 1984-1986. I preferred the obvious power and flexibility of PaperClip but in the pre-internet days, finding a comprehensive manual for a bit of pirated warez was not terribly easy, lol. 

 

Yeah, I still have a binder full of photocopied manuals for various software that are clearly copies of copies of copies. In my high school days in the 1980s I was lucky to have a photocopier in my dad's office. The coin-operated photocopier the school offered would have made a copied manual more expensive than the actual software for all but very simple game instruction leaflets.

That's why I use it in the U1MB/Incognito firmware. Love it.

 

Put it to use in the Last Word (and some kind of soft-80 equivalent) and I'll design some fonts for it.

This website claims to be the address fro Bob Gale.    It would be cool to mail him the pic and ask him if he wrote BTTF on an Atari 8bit.

I remember that picture from an special edition magazine released soon after BTTF part 3. I got the Spanish edition of that magazine... Around 90, 91 or 92 time frame... I remember noticing the Atari computer, at the time, but somehow I assumed was an Atari ST and Bob working on that for parts 2/3 not the original BTTF.
I don't why I got those ideas, maybe because the picture was located in a page related to parts 2/3 text.
I don't remember the name of this book/magazine but I am sure that if I look hard enough I will get some coordinates of it.
I was not that surprised at the time because I usually spotted Atari STs on TV.


Edit: found it. I had exactly same book, but like more like a magazine.

Move to 3:46
