  1. Yup. Somebody else REALLY wanted it so they could throw it in their closet forever. I couldn't let that happen. I just finished posting the last of it on Archive.org. This morning I posted seven issues of an extremely rare newsletter called 'Turtle News' that has articles about LOGO and PILOT for multiple platforms.
  2. I just archived two issues of Ornjuce, the newsletter of the Atari Computer Association of Orange County user group. https://archive.org/details/ornjuce-vol-07-num-08-august-1986 https://archive.org/details/ornjuce-vol-07-num-07-july-1986/mode/2up There are a few more issues up on Archive.org already: https://archive.org/details/ornjuce-atari-computer-assocation-of-orange-county-newsletter-vol-9-no-1-qtr-11988 The ones below are from an Archive.org collection uploaded by San Leandro Computer Club but don't come up in a Archive.org search for some reason so I put links below: https://archive.org/details/AtariUserGroupNewsletterJuneToDecember1987Part8/Ornjuce-AtariComputerAssocationOfOrangeCountyNewsletterVol8No4July1987/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/AtariUserGroupNewsletterJuneToDecember1987Part8/Ornjuce-AtariComputerAssocationOfOrangeCountyNewsletterVol8No5Aug1987/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/AtariUserGroupNewsletterJuneToDecember1987Part8/Ornjuce-AtariComputerAssocationOfOrangeCountyNewsletterVol8No6Dec1987 Of course if anyone has any more issues, please archive them and upload them to the Net.
  3. I have the same problem in Connecticut.
  4. No problem. If you can find one other person in your area, that's all you need. Go for it.
  5. I scanned a bunch of newsletters from this user group today. I put them up on archive.org. https://archive.org/details/io-connector-january-1983/mode/2up There are about 15 issues I just uploaded. The newsletter changed it's name to The I/O Connector early 1983. There are a bunch of later issues already up there that were scanned by @Savetz a while ago.
  6. @bf2k+ You mentioned you have software. Do you have any original non-game software?
  7. More issues of Computer Shopper ST (and 8-bit) articles: https://archive.org/details/computer-shopper-july-1988-vol-8-num-7-atari-articles/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/computer-shopper-may-1989-vol-9-num-5-atari-articles https://archive.org/details/computer-shopper-september-1989-vol-9-num-9-atari-articles/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/computer-shopper-october-1989-vol-9-num-10-atari-articles https://archive.org/details/computer-shopper-june-1989-vol-9-num-6-atari-articles/mode/2up

  10. A couple of images I would love to have in a good quality form are below. A nice bumper sticker for your car and a nice atascii graphic chart. I'm not sure if I would stick it on my computer but it would be nice to have it as a chart I could put some where near my Atari's.
  11. https://archive.org/details/computer-shopper-november-1989-vol-9-num-10-atari-articles/mode/2up November, 1989 issue.
  12. Please understand I didn't have any reference to watching the real man before watching the movie. So I couldn't even say whether the actor seemed somewhat like Clive. He just seemed off as far as how an adult would move naturally. The rest of the movie seemed done very well, which is why it kept standing out to me while watching the movie. On rare occasions, people have eccentric aspects of themselves, so I just assumed it was something related to that. But that hair. Looking at real video footage of Sinclair, whose hair looks much more natural, naturally, I think the make-up artist did a poor job. Definitely enjoyable movie otherwise. Martin Freeman is always great in whoever he plays. I will definitely look up those talks.
  13. Stayed up late last night watching this. Fun movie. I just have to say though, in spite of enjoying the movie, the guy who played Sinclair was kind of weird. On top of having a really poorly done hair/wig, they guy acted very stiff. It was like the actor was trying not to mess up his wig. Strange. It was a good movie, otherwise. Thanks to all who mentioned it. I used to pick up the British computer magazines back in the Eighties in a book store a few towns away. I saw they had some Atari listings. I got hooked reading about the other computers and always wanted some of them but never did get one. I loved the look of the Spectrum graphics. Oh, that keyboard though.
  14. This thread just brings to light again we really need a website like Atarimania that has Atari 8-bit public domain programs that are easy to search and download.
  15. The Atari 8-bits were sold in Israel. There was software produced there. My guess is a lot of it never got archived. I think there have been a couple of threads on this in the past. @gilsaluki Do you know the Belcom disk numbers for these?
  16. Here is a rare set of disks I just copied from originals. The Antic Software's Bulletin Board Construction Set for Hayes modems. Bulletin_Board_Construction_Set_Hayes_disk_1A.atr Bulletin_Board_Construction_Set_Hayes_disk_1B.atr Bulletin_Board_Construction_Set_Hayes_disk_2A.atr Bulletin_Board_Construction_Set_Hayes_disk_2B.atr
  17. My suggestion is to upload stuff either here or on Archive.org and then just point it to them. I scan a ton of manuals and upload them to Archive.org. Sometimes I will add a link to the manual in the Comments section of each entry on Atarimania.
  18. What country were you in at the time? It might help narrow the search down.
  19. I recently bought Dawn of Civilization that came with the manual. I scanned the manual. Looks like another interesting 4-player game. http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-dawn-of-civilization_1530.html It looks like this was one of those games that came in a plastic bag.

  20. I got six more issues of Computer Shopper from 1988 and 1989. Will be scanned soon.
  21. @rra I was just playing the 5200 version and noticed on novice and experienced that when you lose a ship by touching something, it doesn't take away a ship. You still can only lose 5 ships and the game ends, it just doesn't remove one of the little ships telling you how many you have left.
  22. A couple of more manuals I had scanned added since my first post. Also to keep in mind APX did five revisions of their manuals but most programs did not have all the revisions done since some programs were discontinued and some were later releases. I have been trying to archive all versions. Lemonade Reversi Character Set Editor BlackJack Casino. https://archive.org/details/blackjackcasinoversion2manualapx Presidents of the United States. https://archive.org/details/presidents-of-the-united-states-version-2-apx Isopleth Map-Making Package Rabbotz Utility Diskette II Polycalc Data Base/Report System Word Search Generator Real Estate Cash Flow Analysis. https://archive.org/details/realestatecashflowanalysisapx Diskmenu Diggerbonk(have educational Software version, not APX) Home Loan Analysis Dragon's Quest or a Twist in the Tail (this title is an Antic Software release and may not exist as an APX release. It was a very late release and is in the last APX catalog but it may not have 'gotten out the door.') Thanks, @Fierodoug5 And thanks @BillC for scanning the Deep Blue C manual.
