This is a question really to Dal specifically.

I plan to have my computing students forum online within this month of July. There will be a retro computing section on the forum. May I link to the Atari Forum? I hope to make the current generation of students aware of what is out there and encourage them to explore fantastic resources such as this.

Let me know your thoughts. :-)

Cool. Will get onto it. Hopefully when I hear from 2xAA again I will ask him to spread the word of the forum at the college he's going to in September, get them onboard and hopefully that will result in more exposure. :-)

Tell you what, I found something interesting last year when I was studying a computer history module. We have an excellent lecturer/head of school who collects old machines. He's an Amiga man but he also has an Atari Falcon in his collection (yeah obviously I hated him to begin with before I came across that piece of knowledge, lol, not). We have a wide cross section of ages on our courses but during the lecture he asked who heard of various OSs, such as CP/M, GEMTOS or GEM, Amiga OS, Acorn OS etc. I was one of the very few people that put their hands up. 18 year olds, even right up to mid 20s simply have no idea such things even exist. 8O
