Article #455 (635 is last): From: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.news Subject: SpartaDOS Project by Nelson Nieves Reply-To: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Date: Thu Oct 17 17:26:58 1996 Date: 28 Nov 1995 19:08:54 -0500 From: email@example.com (Nelson none. Nieves) Subject: Press Release PRESS RELEASE PRESS RELEASE PRESS RELEASE To all ATARI 8-bit users who use SpartaDOS as their main disk operating system. My name is Nelson Nieves. I want to announce my intentions to support the ATARI 8-bit computer users running SpartaDOS. The programs are modeled after MS-DOS and Norton Utilities programs on the IBM platform. This is a software only project, among the following programs in development are: vUnErase - view and/or unerase deleted files or directories; recover partial deleted files to other disks or hard-drive partitions. XCopy -- will use the extra 64k on 130XE computers for faster read and write operations; SpartaDOS 3.2x users will be able to take advantage of archival copies when used in combination with FAtr. DeFrag -- a two part defragmentor with a separate directory optimizer. I need to here from you! It is a critical moment. Your support will keep this project alive. I have created a sample ARCed file which contains several of the programs (that will be released commercially, in mid 1996), a list of programs under development, and a questionnaire for you to send along with $5.00 U.S. dollars. (If you can send $10.00 U.S. dollars, so much the better!) :) The file will be FTP-able in the future. For now you can send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will e-mail you NNTOOLS.ARC in MIME format. (Sorry, I am using PINE on a shell account.) For those of you who cannot receive e-mail file attachments send $10.00 U.S. dollars to: Nelson Nieves ATTN: ATARI 8-bit project P.O. BOX 1702 Hatillo, PR 00659-1702 Questions? Call 1 (809) 820-3135. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. eastern standard time. Ask for Nelson.
