Last week a local ham (whoever knows who hams are +1) gave me an Atari 1040ST found in a god-knows-who-left-it-there place :) . When i saw this poor machine i remembered the stuff i read - it was a treasure in its day. But i only have the machine. No paperwork :) no cables whatsoever, no software...., dont know if it boots. I Will clean it, open it and see if it looks ok and no damage can be seen, power cable is standard... It should boot right?, without any disks..... heh..... need a mouse ..... :)

This is a topic that is actually very dear to me and most, if not all, of my games are inspired, in a way or another, by classic games: "Turky on the Run" by Locomotion and even "Secret Santa: it's a stealthy xmas" kind of referenced Little Computer People, as outlined in a postmortem of the game I just wrote (but not published yet: I'll let you know guys when it gets out!).
