Complete list of TechTips, change orders, mods, etc?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone compiled a list of all the tech tips, change orders, etc that Atari published to the field?

There is a good starting list here (stollen from M Current's site): http://mcurrent.name/manuals.html But I also know there were changes to the 5200, the CX55 etc in those service manuals and elsewhere.
