Thanks for the link.  Smiley

I like the story about the 'Friday party' in the part 2.
Every Friday, the boss gives his car and his credit card to an employee and ask him to bring things for the party  Grin

I also like the part about checking every morning if there were no dead body's in the office and smoking weed in the woman's bathroom, what a company!  Grin

If you like those stories, you should read The Ultimate History of Video Games. It's full of anecdotes about life at Atari like those in the video.
