- My name is Ray Ataergin and I am a
computer software developer.
- When I was working in the IT
industry my projects were always related to business applications
running on mainframe/mini computers, they were challenging but not
much fun. So as a hobby, I chose to have an Atari
800XL, then a 130XE) and spent my spare times using,
programming, modding and enjoying it. Nowdays I don't work for
living so I have a lot more time to devote to my favorite vintage
computer. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
- I see the SIO2PC
as one of the most useful upgrades to date for the 8 bit Ataris. I
liked it so much that even though I am not an electronics expert I
designed my own version of it and have been improving it since the
- Then I've
discovered AspeQt, the Peripheral Emulator software designed and
implemented by another Atari enthousiast. This was the first serious
free alternative to APE, which was at the time the only fully
functional SIO2PC software available for the PC Windows environment.
- When Fatih (the
original coder) took a long hiatus from coding for the Atari 8 bit,
I decided to take over his duties, and has been maintaining and
improving the software ever since.
would like to thank Fatih Aygun for creating this amazing product.
