Not mine, but I thought it might be of more general interest.

A heads up (that auction ends in 18 hours from now (12:56CST) .. or CDT.. whatever).. but they've also posted some other interesting items as well as another (cheaper) source code book here (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Atari-400-800-Operating-System-Source-Code-Listing-/190511172254?pt=UK_VintageComputing_RL&hash=item2c5b59ca9e). Certainly seems like these should be in someones collection or someone who wants to do some deeper development for Atari products.

Hm.. Seems another book was also released by Compute that supposedly has some Atari Source code (http://wiki.strotmann.de/wiki/attach/The%20Atari%20Basic%20source%20book/How-atari-basic-works-p3.html) but I'm certainly not sure what code either of these books have (This latter link is Atari Basic source code but probably from decompiling the rom although I see a link indicating this was written by one of the folks who wrote the source code.
