just before the end of 1997, I had always envisaged a
website that incorporated all the most important Atari
history and information. Little did I realise how
big such a project would be to accomplish. After a
few years updating and revising ATM, I decided to
finally register a domain and develop a more exciting
Atari website, where you could find out anything you
wanted to about Atari. Again, another great idea
in theory, but executing such a project on your own is
no simple task. Thanks again go
to Curt Vendel of the Atari Museum for his help and
friendship over the years and to all those of you who

Ultimately, it is preserving the
history of Atari that this site is dedicated.
