   I've got plenty of original program disks for the Atari 800 that still work
after nearly 15 years. In fact, at the one thrift store I frequent, I picked
up a version of VisiCalc for the Atari 800, all original packaging, manuals,
cards, disks and all! The outside cardboard sleeve is a little worn
(afterall, it is from 1982), but the inside even smells new still. No wear on
the pages or anything. I've yet to try to read the diskette though.
