Hi, I am Sijmen and this is my ATARI homepage.

I have my 800 XL for about 30 years now, and still enjoy playing it and making hardware for it,
like the MYIDE interface, which I have worked on now for over 13 years.

Also we (my wife and I) collect all Atari-made items. You can see that on the collection-pages, and
we often game on the XL (favorite: MULE), Lynx (California Games), 2600 (Dragster) or Jaguar (Super Burnout).

The Atari videocabinets, jukebox and pinballs we have were all non-working when we bought them.
I have some knowledge of electronics, and repaired them all with the help of the internet, schematics and some help of others.

Hope you`ll enjoy my homepage!

Feel free to email me with comments or questions:  mr-atari at mr-atari.com ( replace at by @ )
