  1. Looks like it might be an A400 overlay huh? Sorry if this is something common... looked rare to my eyes.
  2. What in the world is that graphics keyboard thing? Is it simply an overlay for the keyboard? Sure doesnt look like it...
  3. Plus, as we all know - disks are dying....
  4. Doesnt matter.. any version of anything that had a different name i want to chronicle... i mean after Curt dying Im feeling like I really need to accelerate this.. I drink a bit too much who knows... I wanna get this list going, give someone secondary rights to it and let it be a TRUE and LIVING resource..
  5. Im going to TRY and spend some time getting the “atari bbs all time list” up this weekend... I just wanted to find an atari feeling theme and I havent been able to do so.. So its likely going to get the same theme as wardialers.org... maybe I will use an atari blurred background...
  6. Ahh.. I see this has been posted before.. My bad. Leaving post up just to link the ebay ad in case anyone is int.

  8. Did not know of him back in the day - but certainly learned of him once I landed here.. We conversed about wardialing, bbs’s, hardware and several other things... as others have said the videos make him look positively radiant - but if it was heart then thats the way that deal can go. Bless his friends and family (which I guess includes all of us, so here is a virtual #hug). I hope his work will not go lost, and his gear will go to a worthy historical preservation or museum. #Godspeed mr. Vendel.
  9. Cool thank you.. yes it will be a very simple website that consists of all Atari BBS software (lots more than what Jason Scott has) that have been found as well as those that are still sought....Likely just Atari 8 - but possibly ST as well since I’ve found a few unknowns for it too.... likely just a single page site as a matter of fact.. but i want it to look kick ass and be atari themed.
  10. Like I was saying - I would likely just save the text as an image to present the same font to everyone regardless of whether or not it was installed rather than dick with people not seeing the expected font.... Thanks for the responses guys!
  11. I’m on their facebook page and they seem like a super great bunch of folks.. Great resource for us archivers out there!
  12. I don’t recall the ad - but there was one back in the day that showed an Amdek Color with an Atari 8 (and now that I think about it - it might have been that ad for the Amdek 3.0” disk for the atari!) and I lusted over that monitor (and that drive) endlessly but in all of my years have not seen a single one of those Amdek monitors... Great score! Looks nice!
  13. I’m going to be putting an Atari site together that will basically just consist of a gridlist and I would like to use Atari fonts/Graphics to do it.. Is there an app for the PC that is taylor made to do this perhaps, or do I simply need to hunt down a font and save the items as graphics so the user gets it as well?
  14. I guess my initial thought was even kind of dumb.. not like Atari was an “american” company anyway really.. But you are definitely right - it would be neat to see what the location of the early popular games was..
  15. I have a question - and its one I’ve kept for quite some time.. I have always ASSUMED that atari/tandy/commodore/TI99/etc - meaning everything of that timeframe - the software was mainly written by folks in North America - perhaps the UK... Then - when things like the Nintendo, sega, etc started showing up - it seemed like more of an “asian” influence... Does anyone agree with this observation? And - I apologize if this is totally obvious and I’m an idiot for even asking for agreement...
