I wish I could remember. I wouldn't say I moved up, especially not here lol,  but I did move on to Apple II and then IBM PC after this.

I was wondering about that. I know with apple II about two companies mfg a 8" disk drive controller. But I got a Percom drive system with the atari I just picked up. They have an option to simply plug in other 5.1/2" drives. If they are standard (shugart?) when I don't wee why a cable mod wouldn't work. Now the question would be mod the software to use more sectors to get more space out of the disk

Unfortunately no 'original original' pics of my Atari 8bits,  but I do have a pic from 93-94 that includes my second Atari 8bit (an 800XL).  At the time I was fully on the PC (hosting a BBS, writing C programs, etc). but was occasionally going back to the 8bit or ST for some quality gaming time..   


(I was definitely a little less organized in my youth..)




Also an ST pic from the same photo set (any idea which ST monitor that is on the right?  I seem to have lost it since then..)


I think that's a 130XE on the shelf on the upper right..

I couldn't find any photo of my 2600 nor 8-bit that we had beginning from ~1979, but found a photo from 1991 with a 16-bit. Alas, only the SM124 on focus.

All things related to Atari, including magazines, are still in my possession, including the posters in the background (but not the TV) - and myself :)
