Richard Lindgren, APX financial software

Richard Lindgren published two programs in Atari Program Exchange. Real Estate Cash Flow Analysis first appeared in the winter 1983 APX catalog, where it won first prize in the business and professional applications category. Strategic Financial Ratio Analysis was first available in the summer 1983 catalog, where it took second prize in the home management category.

Richard also wrote the program Banjo Picker, "Program your Atari to make sounds like an automated five-string banjo," which appeared in the October 1985 issue of Antic magazine, and which provides intro tune for this episode.

This interview took place on February 8, 2016.

Teaser quote:

"You know, the APX experience was an intersting experience ... I think it was a really interesting precursor of the models that we're seeing today."
