There is a "Stand-alone Atoms" item in the frickin' Start Menu.  How 
does that constitute an inconvenience?  If that's too many clicks for 
you, drag and drop a shortcut to the desktop.

You can use atoms from the command line to read an input or CIF file and 
write to a file or to standard output.  You can use atoms from the 
command line with the "--wx" switch to fire up the stand-alone GUI app.

I acknowledge that the web app that died last January was widely used 
and that I am an unredeemable lay-about for not recreating it.  But your 
criticism is a bit unfair, Matthew.
