Whizzo Software - SIO2Arduino edit / delete

"SIO2Arduino is an Atari 8-bit (800/XL/XE) device emulator that runs on the Arduino platform. It currently emulates a single Atari 1050 disk drive (D1:) but there are plans to extend it to support multiple drives as well as other devices." I've been meaning to build one of these for my Atari 800 for, oh, fifteen years now...

Atari - Best Electronics Home edit / delete

Spare parts for Atari machines. My 800 needs a new keyboard at some point! Apparently they were a very big buyer of Atari surplus in the 80s and 90s...
