I did get a few disks from local people that had viruses in my early days, bytebandit ect.
There was this 88/89 demos disc that one of the demos wouldnt load, tried various disk salv programs with no luck, kept reporting a sector was corrupt.
I loaded up a sector editior to take a peek at the offending sector, I laughed so hard I nearly fell off my chair!
LamerExterminatorLamerExterminatorLamerExterminatorLamerExterminator
was written across the whole sector!
I did pick up a few of those too from said local people(lamers) but there were plenty of tools and knowing where they came from kept anything under control!

Does the Atari have similar things like cool/cold capture to activate memory resident stuff?
