Incredible 8 Bit Library Find.

Postby rcamp48 » Thu May 23, 2019 6:17 pm

I have big news for Atari 8 bit owners, my friend has found an entire library from The Atari 8 Bit GTIA group from Kitchener, Ontario, I have no idea if the disks are even readable as I have no 8 bit equipment yet. They are in an Indus drive case so they should be ok and they were stored in a dry and safe place. I am going to get a 5.25 inch dive (360 K) for my old Windows machine (Windows 98) and back them all up. Let you all know what is on them this afternoon. GTIA means Get Together For Information On Atari, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada based.

I stand corrected, this is a library from both GTAI, KWEST, and TAF , there are several Toronto Atari Federation Atari 8 bit disks in the case , they look like they may be readable. KWEST was the Kitchener, Waterloo, Eight , Sixteen, Thirty Two Atari Users Group.

Great find. Just got my hands on a 130XE so I'm interested!
