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
nkey@free.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:
