Change log returned (with some design changes)

Now I have many original magazines at home, plus resource of magazines in PDF format scanned by some friendly people. This lead to rediscovery and determination of Atari products again, so data on this site will become more accurate and it will grow constantly. Links to information on Atari products will be updated, so detail pages will also contain original source of information, for example from the original magazines: Antic, November 1983, Volume 2, Number 8, Page 34.

I also plan to automate the News page with automatically generating the contents of news for particular new update on the site. This and other things will enable me to update the site more frequently with more news. Of course, time is another matter I must resolve. More time, more results!

My Blacky died in January 2009.

I miss you very much Blacky, my friend! We meet again.


(click for larger pictures)

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

 When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone  here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and  hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play  together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our  friends are warm and comfortable.

 All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health  and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and  strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days  and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...

5.8.2008:

Hello everybody,

Finally, here is new update of my Atari site. Many things have changed, I mainly focused on new design, additional, more accurate data and ever growing libraries. I decided to use 1024 pixels by horizontal axis as this is more or less standard by now, if not too small by today's standards. The site was tested with FireFox 2.0~ (Windows version), Internet Explorer 6.0~ and Internet Explorer 7.0~ browsers. JavaScripts must be enabled for features like searching facility to work properly. It may seem that some things are missing at first glance, but don't worry. I am in the middle of rescanning of all previously checked online archives and libraries plus rereading magazine stuff. I also have some magazines at home now to feel the time they were published, with all those great articles and ads.

Here is a list of more important changes:

- New layout
- More menu choices
- More detailed and accurate data of Atari entries
- Reorganization of HTML pages in directories
- Additional libraries (pictures, character sets, with latter without screenshots yet)
- Currently nearly 200 BELLCOM disk images checked
- Page 6 Public Domain library disk images checking in progress, with other magazines and PD libraries to start with...

Notes:

- I added the facility to identify completed and unfinished Atari entries. One way to identify the status is the exclamation mark in detail page for specific item. You can notice the second way in the sorted lists of items. For example:

K-Byte (7 entries)
K-razy Kritters
K-razy Antiks
Mountain King
Math Mileage
Boulders And Bombs
K-razy Shootout
K-Star Patrol

Red item means that not satisfied amount of data for specific entry is found and therefore not completed yet.
Blue item means I thought current data is enough to be shown on detail page, including entry screenshots.

Above complies only to Games, Software and Source code sections.

- Games sections #, A and B are mostly completed, with some updates in other sections
- Currently maximum of 6 screens are shown for specific game / other software. Other screens will be added in next instalments.
- Sorted lists of games with thumbnails only show 3 screens for every entry
- Searching by publisher / developer / PD is only available in Games, Software and Source code sections
- Short item descriptions will begin to appear in next updates
- Demos section is currently without image screenshots
- Some download links to specific entries will not work if the host is down (for example, I found the Holmes server is not working. Down temporarily?)
