Additional Comments

Also known as Atari Astrology (title screen).

Notes:
_ although the title screen says "(C) 1980", the first program line reads "ATARI ASTROLOGY 1/20/82"
_ interestingly, the Atari Program Exchange released an astrology title just four months after the above date (May 1982)
_ the only mention of the program is from a catalog dated late 1980 and the title appears to have been quickly dropped - although the author continued to work on it for an additional year - and the CX8111 serial number assigned to another product
_ no author information is to be found in the main program but the NATAL, DAILY, COMPAT, CHINA and ICHING files have programmer John F. Dunn (of Atari VCS Superman fame) listed in the code, making this the first evidence that the coder did any work on the Atari home computers
_ the program only allows input for the years 1900 to 1999
_ this is a text-based program and, as such, the data may be hard to interpret unless you're a seasoned astrologist; the manual for this program would likely have been massive
_ according to former Atari employee Larry Banks who donated the disk to the National Videogame Museum, the program went unreleased because the astrology consultant hired by Atari wasn't happy with the result

Many thanks to Larry Banks for providing this program / John Hardie for dumping it!
