Thanks for interview!

I make Obseesion fan page where people can send me hi score and I will put it on web  :)
http://milan.kovac.cc/atari/obsession/

Some yers ago, Michael Sundell (a.k.a Michael Brunnstrom) contacted me via email regarding this fan page:

"I found your fan page about Obsession. This game is still what I'm most
proud over and it took almost 200'000 lines of assembler code and a lot of
long nights to complete."

And Peter Zetterberg also contacted me (he worked at Microsoft at time) via email:

"My name is Peter Zetterberg and I’m co-founder of UDS. It was kind of fun finding this web page. Who are you? Kalle, Tord, Empa, Oskar, Jimmy, Hans? I get the feeling from reading the story that you lived in the “hell hole”.... "

EDIT:
only now, reading Tord interview, I understand why Peter Zetterberg wrote me “hellhole” :D (search for this word in Tord internview at Atari Legend!)
btw Tord interview is AWESOME! Thanks!

Wow, it was great to read an interview with someone working on one of my all time favourite ST(e) games ( Obsession )
Thanks a lot.

Thanks for this. I would really like to get in touch with the whole team of the old UDS. I was in contact with Peter Zetterberg, I sent him some questions for an interview, he replied and started on the interview. But I guess he is just too busy (he is head of the minecraft division of MS and starting a new company called Wanderword).

I would be interested in contacting more people, Michael Sundell, or Oskar Burman. But Oskar also just released his first VR game with his new company, lots of these guys have become succesful. I would gladly work together with you to get something done...

Is there an interview with Tim Boehlert who worked on the manufacture of the first Atari 600 XL prototype at the New York facility?
He is on facebook and sells his first prototype, it would be very interesting to know his experiences at that time with Atari.
