Greetings fellow humans!

Post by RealHuman » Fri Jun 01, 2018 10:11 pm

My hobbies include breathing air and staying alive. And well- Atari!

I remember Ataris when I was a kid and they were the THING. Back then everyone either had either C64 or an Atari. And while these machines were so basic compared to modern multi-core computers they always had that "magic". To me it was especially visible in the graphics. Those tiny images always fascinated me. I even wrote a few programs to convert images from original Atari formats (and also C64) to more modern PNG.

So yeah, I came here to learn more about Atari, mostly about it's graphics modes and image formats but also just find out more about the machines.
