The One Indespensible Accessory for your Atari Computer? A Fern, of Course!

Besides the beautiful wood grain, it seem that no computer was complete in the late 1970s and early 1980s without a sturdy fern. I have several computers now and not one of them in anywhere near a plant. Perhaps that explains why I am always so tense all the time or why the air seems to heavy with carbon dioxide? I guess I would need to be some sort of scientist to know for sure. But I would guess at the very least having some green near your machine couldn’t hurt.

Maybe it is time for a new type of cubicle accessory? The e-Fern?

  1. Wood grain desk, wood grain television, and an Atari 800 computer system. Must have a fern. In fact, looking at my home system, I am considering some plant life to go with my computer systems, perhaps a fern.
