I started with a 1200XL (64K RAM) and 1050 (127K disk drive)
and _years_ later picked up an SX212 (1200 bps modem).

I'm thinking of writing a new game for the Atari soon.
Probably a Puzzle-Bobble style game, perhaps stealing (as best I can)
some of the art from Frozen Bubble for Linux, if it's alright with them. ;)

and/or can dig up a copy! :)
