Hey people,

I have been playing around with my Arduino Uno since december last year.
Before I got an arduino, I read a lot about it and thought it was about time to get me one.

After playing around with it a little (led projects, hooking up an LCD, getting storage cards working)
I thought of something which would be handy for my other hobby (Retro Computing)

I had an Atari 800XL here which I couldn't do anything with, because the tape interface had failed and I didn't have some other way to load stuff on it.

Check out my build and let me know what you think of it:

The Arduino acts as a floppy drive for my Atari 800XL now.
The project isn't finished yet.
It needs a casing (gonna use the failed tape deck for that) and I found some more filetypes which my project doesn't support yet.
