What's the latest Atari related thing(s) you've bought on ebay?

Recommended Posts

I bought and this week received VisiCalc "for Atari 800" (that's what it has on the box).

 

Call me odd, but even though I have never used Visicalc itself, I think it's cool to own the first spreadsheet program written. It was first sold in 1979. It was written for the Apple II, Atari 8-bit, Commodore PET, and the IBM PC.

 

:cool:

Cool, I have 2 complete copies of visicalc, I also have boxed copies of Superscript (word processor) B/Graph(statistical Analysis Package), Magniprint II+, 10Print,complete set of Video Title software etc etc etc. Strange fascination with these old Utilities, no idea why :twisted:

I got an SD SDHC MMC Card To Female ATA 3.5" IDE HDD Adapter to use with my MyIde flashcart. This was quite a bit cheaper than my 256MB Transcend CF-IDE module.

I was working for IBM at the time and I got to try VisiCalc on the early PC... what a dog. The Atari version was much faster and cleaner. I remember Basic wasn't anything so great on the PC, either. (it was faster than Atari Baisc, however)

Lynx car adaptor, boxed. $16 including postage.

 

Anyone know what's the deal with it outputting 10.5 Volts rather than 9?

the Addendum for my STacy (and it deserves a full manual <pout>), as well as a trackball

From eBay for $51.00

 

I had a max bid of $50 on that and was away from the computer when the auction ended so you snaked it for a buck more... Waaaaah! :(

 

I'm just trying to get an old Atari back into my life after all these years and I thought it would be fun to make my first a 1200XL. Oh, well... You clearly needed it more than me and there will be others!

 

Enjoy the loot!

4 carts: Shamus, Protector II, Star Trek and Atlantis, BIN for $20.

I've been wanting a Shamus for a while and this seemed like a good deal, only Atlantis is a duplicate for me.

I actually have a set of controllers like that, that I got back in the 80's. I think they're Colecovision controllers but work fine on the Atari.

 

Yeah, slather those babies up with the magic goo and make 'em white again. What are those controllers? Never saw those before.

Yes they will!!! Have my container of 'Retr0Brite' ready to go. I have a 1200XL case of Yorgle's I'm doing also.

Sorry about that!!! The 1200XL is my favorite so I collected them, depending on the price, and that lot was very reasonable. Now...the one on eBay for 150.00+ dollars...that's another story!!!
