  1. I just want to say "Thank You" to everyone who purchased a copy of my latest book. After my costs, I was able to put aside a small contribution on behalf of all of you to Curt's daughters College Fund. You helped raise $350.00 for her. It was paid in today, thank you 💚 https://www.gofundme.com/f/24lkoij26o?utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link

  4. It is all very strange - I was waiting 5 weeks for packaging from the UK... that is only 250 miles across the Irish Sea 😄 Re your Microzeit order - I go an e-mail from Mircozeit a few weeks ago about slow mail delivery, but that is a long time for sure. The German postal system is definately slower these last few months, I hope you get it soon.
  5. Thank you DarkLord ☺️ FYI for those who have ordered from AA - books are slowly getting through the postal system, but Europe is worst effected because flights and capacity are down and there is still a backlog from Christmas, this is what I have been told from Irish Post (An Post). There is, in some case about a 3-4 week delay in some countries (eg, orders from Germany from the 5th January have been arriving in the last week or two), but USA post (ie, post heading from Ireland west to the US) seems to be moving better, but delivery is different state to state. I was surprised to see some CA post arriving within 2-3 weeks, so that is an improvement 😄 Be patient, it will get there!
  6. I got the paperback version a few weeks ago, and I'm about a 1/4 of the way through. It's obviously laser focused on the design philosophy of the cabinets and artwork with some interesting quotes from such Atari design greats like Cheng, Takaichi, Querio etc., and input from many inside Atari such as Bushnell, Alcorn etc. This is (so far) a great insight into the design of every aspect of an Atari cab from Pong up. I'm glad I picked this up, and if you have any interest in Atari's arcade ancestry, this should be on your book shelf.
  7. Thanks for the order @DarkLord - I received your reply to my e-mail and we are good to go. I've got the new book set-up for one order per customer right now due to demand, but contact me directly for better shipping prices for more than 2 copies anytime.
  8. Available from today at https://zafinnbooks.com Limited first print run - comes with special ST anniversary vinyl sticker set. Thank you for all your support on these Atari book projects.
  9. Just an update for anybody who might be interested...

  11. Lovely photo, he was in his element there! I remember him putting that display together in his garage, you can tell how proud he is of it.
  12. Sad day. He was a fighter. He tried to help everyone who shared his passion, mostly to his own detriment! Keep the Atari spirit alive, that's what he'd want - RIP Curt, I'll miss you bud.
  13. Thank you very much Stephen, much appreciated. That has cheered me up this morning as the rain pelts down here in Dublin 🙂
  14. To celebrate the 35th Birthday of our beloved Atari ST, I have put together a special commemorative book which should be available late September. I will not let this date pass without a proper celebration this year! I'll put an official teaser online soon and some further information. There is also a new Goodie Pack available on the website which helps support my current and future projects - give and you shall receive, I don't want donations! All profit goes into my "print" fund Thanks again for the support and to everybody who purchased We Love Atari, the feedback made it all worthwhile believe me. Stay safe, Karl
