The Double Click Software Atari ST Internet Archive Museum (Official)

Postby DoubleClickSoftware » Fri Aug 11, 2017 6:03 pm

Hello everyone! Michael Vederman and Paul Lee here to tell you about our new website just created: The Double Click Software Internet Archive Museum (Official)

We have released all of our software, freeware, shareware and commercial releases in one official place.
We've scanned in all our manuals, ads, articles, photos, DC Port schematics and pcb art and more.

The history of Double Click Software, how the partners met, and some historical context has all been provided by me, Mike.
I've scoured the internet for online articles and linked to them and have looked for some of our really old software.

Currently, I've been unable to find the original release of DC Formatter, named "The Formatter", on any server or ftp website. (please see attached help screen from DC Formatter 2.2 which mentions "The Formatter" first release).

Paul hasn't found it either.

I, stupidly, sold all of my equipment and hard drive with all DCS source code to the then president of the Houston Atari Computer Enthusiasts (altho I have no idea who he is now) in 1993. I sold him the rights to everything, basically, altho I would really like to find him and that hard drive now. Help me out, if you can, to find the DCS source code.

Speaking of source code, we will, as we sort it all out, be adding our source code to a github and releasing that and linking to it on our website.

It is hosted on my personal website (deadmike.com) so don't worry about that. That is another tale of my 'life' after Atari and why I dropped out of sight. :)

So, without further ado...

Oh yeah, did I mention that the museum features an in-browser Atari ST emulator loaded with DC Desktop and our software (that you can download in ST file format)? And a few surprises.

Thanks, newbeat looks cool. Please link to us! :)

Once we get our source code figured out and released you can see the 'tricks of the trade' we commonly used. Altho I'm sure a lot has been discovered since.

Posted over at Atari Age but wow, just wow. Will have to set aside some
serious exploration time to go through the whole website.

Thanks so much for doing this - appreciated! :)

Cool! I know I have one, a green one, somewhere. I just hope I didn't give it away to some kid along the way. I went looking for it but couldn't find it with all the other DC stuff. Seems like these things are always there when you don't care about them, then missing when you do care. :) I still have a few places to look. Funny, only mattered to me this week outta the past 26 years. ;)

I can't remember if I picked it up at a World of Atari show or if they were shipped with your software. Oddly it survived 4 location changes over the past 20 some years. I threw a photo on facebook, but limited audience there. Mine is red.

It's a shame there isn't anything like an Atari-Con where we can all get together and reminisce and sell all our really outdated software again. And I'd find a way to order more clickers. ;)
