I'd love to do an Atari exhibit for thier 40th anniversary in 2019. Atari
800 was my second computer after the TRS-80 Model I. I did a lot more
programming for that Atari, I think because it was more "fun". Color
graphics, sound, a serial port and four memory mapped joystick ports. My
friend and I wrote a two-player Battleship game in BASIC that you could
play via modem.  Fun times.
