Productivity Comes To The 7800

Recommended Posts

The A8 Memo Pad starts out in upper case, but I didn't implement the A8 caps keys. Technically the xegs keyboard reports capitals as unshifted, and lower-case as shifted. Meh, gotta leave something for the kickstarter stretch goals.

 

Also, congrats on being the first to report the April Folly Easter Egg -  xegs keyboard support!

I will pay whatever the "Kassar" level stretch goal is for Atari 820 support.

 

I don't know where your guys phones have cameras on them. Mine just has the two plugs, the handset, and the rotary dial. WTF?

I believe the "Kassar" level reward is RevEng fires all the engineers then buys himself a yacht.

At the higher, “Morgan” level, everyone gets free cigarettes for the life of the cartridge or until their first diagnosis of COPD, emphysema or lung cancer, right?

No 7800 mouse support? Pffft.

 

Turn in your Atarian Membership Card... you're supposed to request Trak-Ball support. That's how we roll...

Hey now.... in an alternate timeline, Atari's engineers invent e-cigs 2 decades before scheduled with James Morgan in charge of NATCO. He's the one who suggests using tobacco since Atari's engineers created it with a different plant in mind...

James Morgan? Hmmmm, wasn't he the one who took a 3 month vacation when Atari needed him the most?

 

He stopped producing 600XLs and 800XLs until all of the manufacturing could be set up in Taiwan to cut costs. He ended up causing a shortage of those systems available for purchase at Christmas 1983 so a lot of families who had planned to buy Atari XLs bought Commodore 64s instead.

 

For the record, his plans for "NATCO" were solid. But Steve Ross sold [major pieces of] the company out from under him.
