"No Smoking - oxygen in use."
THE ST NEWS CORRESPONDENCE ADDRESS
by Richard Karsmakers
Even though this is the very final issue of ST NEWS - there will
really be no use in waiting for un-undead issues to appear this
time - you might still want to write to me at the correspondence
address. It will remain valid for quite a few years, so you can
write there if you want to reminisce about the good old days and
that kind of thing. I'm not selling my Falcon (and if I do I
will certainly get a PC "Gemulator" to run Atari stuff), so you
can still send interesting stuff or ask for old ST NEWS issues or
generally anything else I am willing to give away (reference is
made to my other Public Domain and shareware thingies). If you've
written a really nice piece of fiction you might want it
published in the ST NEWS Internet spin-off magazine, "Twilight
World". Anything aimed at what used to be ST NEWS is best
directed to the people of "Maggie" (in Rushden, England), for
whom I'll also continue to write stuff on a kind of irregular
Of course, you can always send season's greetings near the end
of the year and birthday cards around (and preferably on)
November 3rd. And, of course, if you should feel creatively
inspired you're most welcome to send Crazy Audio Tapes, Video
Tapes (including those of your two sisters - preferably called
Cindy Crawford and Claudia Fischer - taking a shower) and
generally anything else you'd want to send. Some of the most
noteworthy things that the editorial staff of ST NEWS has
received through the years are Death (a small statuette), a Bong
(something to smoke mind-expanding herbs in), an 850 Kb Crazy
Letter and, of course, pieces of variously coloured (usually
referred to as "green", for some reason) paper.
(Of course, I am referring here to International Reply Coupons)
I take my correspondence seriously and, although it may take a
while until you hear from me, I usually reply - especially if
letters are in some way extraordinary, silly, extravagent, zany,
nutty or plain encouraging. However, if you really want to give
me help in writing to you I'd appreciate it much if you'd include
sufficient reply postage in the form of Dutch stamps or
International Reply Coupons (these are little pieces of paper
that you can purchase at your local Post Office, or at least you
should be able to).
The Post Office Box specification is as follows...
P.O. Box 67
NL-3500 AB Utrecht
Be nice and make sure I find something in there next time I go,
no matter if ST NEWS no longer benefits from it. Like Clint would
say: "Go ahead, make my day." For those of you too stingy to
spend a stamp (in other words people a lot like me) you can also
write to me via my electronic mail box. The specification of that
is firstname.lastname@example.org (yes, it changed recently!). You can
even send me some programs if you want.
That's it. Maybe I'll meet an extract of your mind in my P.O.
Box one day. If so, see you there!
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
