Rarity 10 and above up to impossible#

This chapter is intended to make an outlook for programs which must exist, but seem to be lost over the decades. If you have any hint, idea or whatever else to help us to digitize this for generations to come, please let us know.

•) Atari OS Rev. B (PAL) for Atari 400/800 from 1981 ; PRINT PEEK (65528)  <RETURN> => 34

There are more than rumors about this OS type, please see here:

Atari XL OS full searchable size: 14.8 MB

Page 31 in the PDF-file or page 28 in the manual itself.

If you own an Atari 400 or 800 in the PAL version, please do us a favor and enter:

?PEEK(65528)

in BASIC. If the result is 34, then you own the most expensive Atari in the world, which has an OS we do not have up to today. It is only a little step for you, but would be a giant leap for the Atari community. Everlasting fame is sure for you in that case.

Further we are looking for:

•) OPERATING SYSTEM 255 for Atari 400/800 ; PRINT PEEK (65528)  <RETURN> => 255

Many thanks to kr0tki who found the trace, that the OS 255 is for real! In page 8 of:
All about Cassette Tapes from 1979.pdf(info) ; size: 741 KB we find:

•) The Atari Accountant Series

•) Atari The Dow Jones Investment Evaluator
Atari Dow Jones Investment Evaluator CX8124
Atari Dow Jones Investment Evaluator CX8125
Atari Dow Jones Investment Evaluator CX8127

•) Atari Home Finance or Personal Finance

•) Atari Home Accounting System

•) Desperate call for help on missing Dorsett tapes

Some tapes had severe damage and therefore couldn't be digitized. If anyone is in the possession of the following tapes, please give us a message or a post here. We really need your help and appreciate just any hint on the programs, who seem to be lost in time, like tears in rain.

The left ones to digitize are as follows:

- General Shop Practices:

Oa1 Tool Identification Lesson, Part 1
Oa7 Discussion of a Two-Cycle Engine
Oa8 Use of Micrometers and Calipers

- Health Services Career:

Hc5 Medical History
Hc6 Extended Care

- Physics:

Ph16 Theory of Relativity

Well, concerning Physics, we may can restore Ph16 from the Atari-Version of that course, Physics CX6008? Just loud thinking...
