  1. ANTIC Interview 90 - Glenn the 5200 Man
  2. Unfortunately I missed this when live but it has pictures of the documentation and a software screenshot (looks like "Lazer" software in blue) and could provide a lead for @brenski to follow up: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Atari-1050-Disk-Drive-with-Rare-Hyper-Drive-Upgrade-/313376169353?nma=true&si=xNaMzyZSmFzf0t4Dt6wBSyRkSdo%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Did anyone here win the auction?
  3. I am in the UK and received #143 last week and #142/Smag #52 today (I joined ABBUC in October).
  4. Hi Simius, I would like a Sophia 2 for an 800XL please.
  5. I have great memories of getting Silica Shop catalogues through the post (sadly I didn't hang on to any). I had a Saturday job at Laskys 42 Tottenham Court Road in 1989/90 and used to call into Silica Shop (which was just a few doors up) most weeks.
  6. Stock (unfiled) SIDE3 fits in my 1200XL (stock, unfiled, cartridge tunnel) with a small bit of gentle persuasion (but nothing that causes me concern).
  7. A Hyper Drive (HF Developments) disk is on eBay here.
  8. A massive collection of Atari 8-bit fonts in PC True Type (TTF) format can be found [email protected] Robot's site here.
  9. Apparently the 600XL and 800XL keyboard tests spell out "Copyright 1982 Atari".
  10. Hi Paul - Re the keyboard - It was the Self Test Easter Egg - As explained by Scottith Games on YouTube: "EASTER EGG: When running the full diagnostic test on a 1200XL, the keyboard will spell out the programmer's name, "michael colburn". This was removed with the 600XL and 800XL, with the keyboard test now spelling out "Copyright 1982 Atari"...
