It seems 2019 is the(!) Atari year at all, not only the 40th anniversary. :-)
Thanks to Curt Vendel so many good software, which was believed to be lost or even never existed, came to surface.
Therefore, Curt, we can’t thank you enough for all you have done for Atari and in special for us all. :-)))

Again in 2019 the impossible has happened, Curt brought us the 80 column version of Silent Butler!
This program was for years on the FBI er Atari list for the most wanted ones!
Now Curt got it! :-) And guess what, he is sharing with us again! WOW! Thank you so much Curt.
We further would like to thank Kevin and Maciej Grzeszczuk for digitizing all the ATRs and taking the pictures of the disk labels. Thank you both so much! :-)
But now, we would like to come to you!
Sadly, I was not able to get just one of the ATRs running. But the data is out there, on the disks, of course.
Atari Big Data, we all have made in the recent years, now we have to come to Atari 'Big Brain', using all of the Big Data available to get things running.
And that means, we want you:

to help the community to get Silent Butler 80 running. :-)
Or to say it with Kennedy’s words: Don’t ask, what the community can do for you, ask, what you can do for Keep Atari Great Again (KAGA)!
Please find the whole archive of Silent Butler 80 attached. Further, please take into account, that Silent Butler needs the XEP80:
The original handler from Atari is rather slow, but working, for warp speed, please use the drivers from our Floppydoc and living legend Avery Lee, which he offered on his additions diskette, too.
It is not an easy one, of course, but we are sure, with the help of all, we gonna make it!
The Atari community is strong! Don't mess with Big Brain, you won't make it!
Don’t worry, we won’t send the MP after you, it is fully sufficient, if you can contribute, ideas, tools, suggestions and so on.
Therefore, we would be glad to read from you. :-))))
Curt, Kevin, Maciej, Roland and the force, who is always with us.
