    On this day, July 12th, in 2020 Southern Amis BBS returned online. Southern Amis was originally called Southern Comfort and was an AMIS BBS in the 516 area code during the mid-80s (source: BBSMates website). Southern Amis was started as a tribute to the original Southern Comfort BBS. The BBS runs BBS Express and is hosted in the AWS Cloud.

    This month in 1985, Microbits Peripheral Products (MPP), was purchased by Supra Corporation. MPP was the maker of the popular MPP1000C and MPP1000E 300 baud modems that plugged into the Atari 8 bit's joystick port. Supra would rebrand the MPP1000E modem as the Supra 300AT modem (see image below). (source: September 1985 issue of the Portland Atari Club Newsletter, page 5. This was a reprint of an Antic article, possibly from the September 1985 issue).
