IAM LOOKING FOR A WAY TO PROTECT A TEXT DISK FOR ATARIWRITER
FROM PRYING EYES. MY DAUGHTER WANTS A COMPUTER DIARY THAT HER 
SISTER CAN'T SPY ON!!

    I know of no way to "protect" an
Atariwriter data disk.  It may be pNNNossible
to write your own protected word
processor for your daughter, but that
is probably down the road a ways,
sometime when you know a lot more about
programming and protection techniques.
    A more pracitcal solution might be
to give your daughter her own disk or
box of disks, and provide a way for her
to physically secure the disks when not in use.

                        Your Co-sysop
