Reader Comment

Kudos for the doctor

    Lee Brilliant is! Brilliant, that is! His Atari Zucchini series may just be the answer to turning around the waning 8-bit support you referred to in Issue 62's editorial. Well, perhaps that is a bit of an overstatement, but... the article is exciting, and I await each edition eagerly. Keep Lee Brilliant writing these articles. Though I don't usually understand all the subtleties, I invariably learn a little from each one.
    As to the use of our 8-bit, or perhaps I should say 8-bits (we have two 800s, two 800XLs and a 130XE), we run the gamut. I manage a trust using AtariWriter for the correspondence, and VisiCalc and SynCalc for the book work.
    I also do a fair amount of military writing using the Atari 8-bits. I agree with Arthur Leyenberger that my favorite peripheral is a Tandy 100 laptop. I've used it for trip reports, as well as correspondence.
    I also used the Ataris to prepare a book of poetry for publication. It was written by my late grandmother in the last three years of her life. She lived to be 97!
    Your magazine is super. I won't tell you it is the only Atari magazine I read, but the articles and ads always keep my interest. And the letters in "Reader Comment" are the first things I read after the "Table of Contents."
    Good luck, and keep publishing for the good old Atari 8-bit.
