As I work on an Atari 825 font, researching old documents has uncovered (for me anyway) some rather interesting things, amongst them is a program called PLOT 825.

 

It is mentioned in the "Library Notes" of the TAIG (Twin Cities Atari Interest Group) Atari Newsletter 1983-09. According to the notes, the PLOT 825 program was included in the TAIG August Disk of the Month.

 

Reference: page 2 https://archive.org/...3-09?q=plot 825

 

 

It is mentioned again in the "Free Software for Your Atari" book published in 1983.

 

Reference: page 17 https://archive.org/...e/n17?q=plot825

 

Does anyone have disks with this software?

 

TAIG also had a BBS as per textfiles.com, http://bbslist.textf.../oldschool.html
