Joke DOS

Postby DoctorVell » Mon Jun 18, 2012 6:30 am

I somehow remember one time there was a diskette for the Atari 8 bit systems that was a DOS that was done as a joke, it was for a practical joke to put on someone. It did some silly stuff, like pretending to format your disk, the directory was all the same file, etc... if anyone knows what it was called and if it is in .ATR format I would love to have it again to show my wife it would be appreciated.
