TV With Atari-Like Logo

Tue Jun 19, 2018 4:56 PM

We're all not gegtting any younger, and my memory isn't what it once was.

 

My first Atari 800 was hooked to a 20" color TV that had a logo that was similar to the Atari Fuji logo.

 

But, I cannot remember what it was, I thought it was Sanyo, but when I look at their logos, that's not it.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks.


Thermal Transfer Paper

Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:59 PM

Does anyone know where I can get tractor-feed thermal transfer paper? I just bought an Oki Mate 10 printer. I had one BITD, and I recall that it does not print the best on standard paper. I used to buy thermal transfer paper that was slightly coated to allow the ink to show up better.

 

I've tried some google searches, but have not had any luck.

 

Thanks.

Mail Insertion Machine Driven By Atari ST

Sat May 26, 2018 4:07 PM

I worked for a bank in the 90s. They had these really complicated machines that pulled in standard paper statements, folded them, counted the checks that were supposed to be in them and then insert the checks and the statements in an envelope and seal it and meter it and if the check count was wrong (based on reading a bar code on the statement) reject the item down a different track for manual processing.

This thing was run by an Atari (1040 or 520) ST with the name of the company over where the Atari logo would normally be.

Does anyone have any information or pictures of this?

Thank you.

Sex Pong. Clickbait Maybe?

Don't know, but I love to read things about early Atari and I assume there are others who do to, so I am sharing this.

 

Read it or not. Your call...
