PAGE 6 is put together almost entirely with Atari equipment and software. Hardware used: 130XE, 1050 disk drive, 810 disk drive, 850 Interface, modem, NEC 8023 printer, 1040ST, SM124 monitor, Atari SH204 hard disk drive, Epson RX100 printer, Microstuffer Buffer. Software used: Superscript, Turbo Basic, Tele-Talk, Kermit, Print Wiz and several custom written utilities on the 8-bit. STwriter, PC Intercomm, Thunder and Fleet Street Publisher on the ST.

Copy is prepared on a 130XE using Superscript and various custom written programs and then transferred to the ST via 8-bit Kermit and PC Intercomm. It is then spell checked with Thunder and the layout drafted with Fleet Street Publisher. Finished copy is output from the ST to a Konnect 2 cassette machine and then fed into a Monotype Lasercomp typesetter.
