Are there any Hot Shot die-hard 8-bit programers out there that 
would be interested in updating a couple items for the Atari 
8-bit?  Pay?, hehe if the development sells you profit as much as 
I do for your efforts..

I own a couple things Software Source Code and a Hard Ware 
Interface..Hard Back and Restore could use an update, drive 9 is 
now avaiable through Sparta Dos X33a and X33b (b) is the dos I 
would prefer using along with any other modifications the 
programer would be interested in doing...???

Everyone wants an IDE interface for the Atari 8-Bit, no one other 
than Wooley has come up with it, Bob Wooley told me a couple 
years ago when I sent him the KPI Hard Drive interface and Source 
that the interface could handle the project.. He has been too 
busy to do anything?...Tom Hunt told me a couple of years ago 
that the interface would also handle CD-ROMS but nothing has been 
developed in THAT area either.  This is the old Supra Hard Drive 
interface, will do SASI and SCSI MFM type drives.

Any Serious takers will draw up a letter of agreement relating to 
the release of Source Code and Schematics for the Hard Drive 
interface...Looking for someone who is serious and interested in 
a NOW project, not a 3year down the road maybe???? (Been there 
done that!)...

My background, have been repairing Atari 8bits since the early 
1980's, Atari authorised a service center here using my setup, 
oked the Retail store as a service center with me doing the 
repair.  I am not an authorised repair center on my own and the 
store has gone out of business years ago, owner had cancer and 
passed away.  I have continued to repair units inexpensivly for 
school districts, and individualy.  I have never intentionaly 
screwed anyone nor do I intend to at this point.

I may be a little (Lot at times) out spoken, but am reasonable 
and can and will work with those that agree to work with me.  I 
have dealt with the public for the last 38 years in another field 
and can mix in just about any enviroment.  I have access to 
unlimited travel can go anywhere in the world provided I have the 

I have been seduced by programers in the past, turned over 
specific items, spent $$ to have items built, they (programer) in 
turn got burnt out.  One specificaly refused to return the test 
items I had built to his specifications, stating the MAIL or UPS 
lost them and refused to have them traced.  Later I found out 
from a friend of both that the individual never returns 
anything..If the language in the agreement seems a little strong 
then I hope you understand why it reads this way.

Any takers???
