  1. ATARBAS.ARC Here's A, B, C binary load BASIC. In an .ARC file. Unarc it
  2. https://archive.org/details/compute-magazine Issue 5-2 I think, issue 33 Has 'slalom', but maybe that's not the one.
  3. You have a 1050, so you can see it's approximate size. I would guess 1 mm. I don't have a micrometer to measure it with. Cutting off a 1050 AC adapter plug would be straightforward. You don't have a stock1050 power adapter to get the plug from. Wait.. you have a busted 1050 power supply, Using that would be easier than getting an exact plug.
  4. My 1200XL has the (tiny R in a circle) to the right, next to the "I". What difference is there? Different OS? Has 83S DA 0 25206 153 on the bottom. ( I see the R in a circle is for the splash screen, not the label on the bottom) OK, mine doesn't have an 'R' in circle on the splash screen, just the rolling rainbow 'ATARI'.
  5. line 100 needs a colon in the quotes OPEN #1,4,0,"K:" devices for OPEN are: C: recorder D(n): disk drive E: screen editor K: key press P: printer R(n): serial port S: screen (how?) you can only output to the screen I think E: and K: do the same thing. no E: can only 8, output, 12 keyboard input & screen output 13 screen input & output (from Poole and McNiff 'Your Atari Computer" You had it in the paragraph correct. I think, don't use "E:"
  6. I definitely think you have a better vocabulary than me. red blindness=protanopia. But I don't believe I have color deficit. If you look at the pictures in Yellowman's post a few back, they look black and white to me. Maybe a little not bright white, but definitely not beige or brown, but dark black. OK, I'll take off-white and dark black. The picture in Yellowman's post is accurate. Well... His picture is of a painted XL, so it doesn't count OK. I looked again, how about slightly grey. Well, I see I lose in other opinions. Now a little more. Here's a picture. Clearly shows a little brown.
  7. I don't know anything about spray paints. But the XLs are white and black. The 400/800 are brown/tan.
  8. Best Electronics (408-278-1070) sells entire keyboards. I doubt you can buy just individual keys. Best Electronics 408-278-1070 1:30 PM to 5 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST) Mon - Fri I don't work for them. It might help if you show a picture of the missing key place.
  9. 144 also is the error you get when densities are different from what is expected. You have to get a disk directory or something to set the density of the target drive. I don't know if you can read from one density and write to a different drive in a different density. I guess you can. DOS has to know the density it is working in. DOS may be able to keep densities of source and destination, I don't know. I'm still thinking. DOS has to know how to deal with files of different DOSes. I'm sure you can read and write from/to two different DOSes.
  10. get a SIO2PC interface from Steve Tucker site. Then you may need a PC RS232 serial to USB cable to connect your PC USB port to the Atari SIO. https://www.atarimax.com/sio2pc/documentation/index.html Tucker has Atari SIO to PC serial port, and a SIO to PC USB port.
  11. Here's a utility to copy any to all sectors to sectors on a disk or to a file. Has two programs. RW13 is mine RWTEST is also here. The programs are LOAD type from DOS. On a SmartDOS 6.1 .ATR image. SMARTD61.ATR
