The impossible has been achieved! After many long minutes of
searching the dark and steaming jungles of Leutenbach, I have
found that aarg!..... (CUT)
(A mysterious, ugly lifeform trying to grow a beard dragged away
the talented writer of the above. Just as he was preparing
himself to burst forth unimaginable prose and oral burblings by
inhaling deeply, he was torn from us with force. Still do we
behold the chair on which his body sat, now lying on the ground
after this outbreak of evil. Will we ever get to know the
unspeakable anomalies that Mr. Relayer was preparing, in his
infinite goodness, to hurl at us? Will the Master of the Long
Leather Thing ever be seen again by human eyes? Will he succeed
in cutting himself loose from the grasp of what can be nothing
other than an alien entity? The answer, dear reader, will
probably forever be shrouded in the dark veils of the future...,
(UNCUT) (of proportionally huge proportions) .....that which
other intrepid adventurers have sought for years: A pub! At last,
the hot caffeine-containing fluid flowed down my throat. No
longer did I have to rely on the cold, carbon-dioxidal
substitute. Yay! Trees chirp! Birds bloom! Sunlight falls in
wagonloads through unsuspecting windows on my retinas! Double
yay! I will now mention the German Alliance, so that Richard can
edit something behind it. Richard just GAVE me the Psygnosis
Monster Pack!!! Ha haaa!!!! He fell for the old "No, Richard, I'm
not interested"-trick! Yippeee!!! I got THREE Psygnosis games for
FREE!!! Well, almost.
Now it is time to once again manifest the powerful force of my
"TCB ARE LAME!!!"
My incredible voice booms through the hall and bounces off all
the walls, improbably enough missing Thorsten "Gogo of TCB"
Mutschall's eardrums. Tanis just looked up, but obviously didn't
mind me calling him a lamer. Ah well. I'll try it again, this
time from a shorter distance. Back in a sec.

(*)="I think that someone just f.cked up four hours of
programming source code. I think that was me.
I think that someone just programmed for four hours trying
to get rid of a bug that was actually too simple to be made
in the first place. I think that was me.
Silly bug!!! I have just fallen for the silliest bug in the
whole wide world. It was so damn obvious that neither Daryl nor I
could find it.
FUCK that FUCKING SHITTY PIECE OF CODE SHIT called Moveq #0,d5.
I loathe you like I have never loathed anything before.
Damn shit!!! The whole code was working, and the simplest, the
fucking simplest instruction of it all fucks the rest!!!
I HATE bugs, why do they exist??? Why???
Anyway, I now have a Madcapping routine that beats the shit out
of any of those so called 'Amiga Mega Coders' who feel happy when
they calculate a whole madcap in, say, at least 10 seconds. Mine
does it in less than 2 fucking seconds (I'll have to calculate,
then I'll give you the real timing).
OK, as I've been told by our master undead editor that no one is
likely to know what madcapping is, well here's a brief
explanation of it.
If you've already seen Amiga demos like "Keftales", "Total
Triple Trouble" or some others, you should have seen at least one
of those so called Madcaps. For the others, imagine some kind of
graphix image completely computed using some easy algorithms to
build it up, then you may add color cycling or other stuff to
improve it and make it nicer. Anyway, if you still don't see what
a Madcap is, just wait for the release of the "ICC #2 demo" (i.e.
"Punish your Machine", ED.), the aformentioned madcap (fuck it)
will be in it.

interest) (Disinterested boredom, actually. Jurie edit)

"Yuck! Puke! Las Vegas!"
Some other people quote
Those Swedish mouse mats are really an absorbing read, honestly.
Even slightly arousing, I have to add (which I will not further
condone - beat! beat! "AH!" "AH!").
Anyway, I would like to add a thought of mine.
This conference is not triggering any urges to make photos. It
is simply a row of chairs and tables with a load of computers
with people behind them. The scenery is less than fascinating to
say the least.
Michael is still sleeping. I hear he looks very ill, so that
serves him well ("Don't use grass!").
Now I find I have nothing more to say. Well, I could mention
that we are nearing the 75 Kb mark of un-edited, raw text. This
is hardly an achievement but if things continue like this we'll
be ending at around 210 Kb.
I'm also bloody bored!
So I will greet some guys who expect me to greet them:
Fat Freddy (hang on!), Tarzoon (nice Sampler...hehehe), Turtle
(Indeeeeeed!) and Tante Clara (snork...).
I N T E R M I S S I O N
Other greetings follow tonight...
Actually I'm bored, too. There is supposed to me a table tennis
compo soon, so I can't wait to witness that.
No. Even if I'm bored I'm not going to greet people (at least
not yet). This is no bloody scroll text!
Bilbo is playing "Lemmings". He has been doing this for quite a
while, and all that time I have been experiencing the odd spasm.
I don't know why, though. Or do I?
What I do know for certain, however, is that it is quickly
getting warmer - the sun has actually chosen to appear! I am not
sure I'm all that happy about this, because last night I couldn't
sleep very well because I was driving out of my sleeping bag
(that's literally translated Dutch - don't bother to understand).
I am getting to write as crappish as this Jora chap. I would
like to greet my mum and my grandmother (rip). Bye. Shit. I've
done it anyway.
Let's have a piss orgy...
Toxic Foetus Eater
Once again it's Flix... I'm having really heavy problems with my
Medium Resolution Fullscreen. I worked it out at home and now I
discovered that the screen doesn't work on most of all the STs on
this convention. After I fiddled around on many STs, I asked
Gunstick of ULM, The Fate of ULM, DbugII of NeXT, -ME- of TEX,
Ford Perfect of BMT, Alien of ST-CNX and all other border-experts
on the convention for help, but they all told me that it's
impossible to do a fullscrenn in medium resolution that runs
perfectly on all STs! Finally New Mode is trying to manage it.
Well, at least there is a new challenge for synchron-coders like
It seems that the guys of Delta Force want to organize a big
midi ring to play "Midi Maze II" with more than just 2
competitors. But I can just hear some 'bleungs' and 'blirgs' from
some other, non Delta Force, machines and so most of the guys are
right now playing "Midi Maze II". I think I will join them
No! No. I can't start every Kb of nonsense with "I'm back!",
because it gets boring and I never left in the first place.
What the fuck is "Midi Maze"? I have never played it in my
entire life and today was the first time I actually saw it. Oh
I just went out and ventured into Leutenbach to check if the
baker was closed. It was. I returned here a happier person.
It seems some more Dutch guys (the salt of the world) are coming
today. Galtan Six should be there, and I hope Crush will come as
well. Everything seems sort of empty without this curly-haired
hunk to insult. There is nothing like the look of bliss in his
glazed eyes to invoke new inspiration. But, for now, I'll have to
try my best with this Swedish mouse-mat.
"Pernilla har ett varmt och innerligt förhallande till sex, och
hon tycker inte att det är det minsta genant att diskutera ämnet,
eller att visa upp sig."
Wow! Reading that really turns me on! I think it means:
"Brigitta spread her long legs and layed her feet in her neck.
Björn pulled out his cucumber and shoved it into Brigitta's
mouth. In the meantime, Sven was licking her vagina, his tail
wagging all the time."
I continue to read, fascinated.
"Chefredaktör och ansvarig utgivare skandinavisk förlags chef
Yeah! More! That probably means :
"Slowly Björn shoved his french bread into Brigitta's hot little
oven, while Sven rubbed cocos milk over her swollen breasts."
Richard is really excited as well, long squirts of words burst
out of his throbbing mouth. Err...
"Sexdrinken som gör din tjej kat!"
I think I'll visit that baker again. Maybe it's still closed.
I just came back from having some decent eating at a local pub
(yes, the one that Jurie discovered earlier). I will now have to
sign off, possibly for a somewhat longer load of nanoseconds -
for I will go and play "Midi Maze II". For the first time in my
I don't like adventure games.
O. Is it no adventure game?
I don't like puzzle games.
O. Is it no puzzle game?
Well then. I guess I'll play.
After a massive three hours of playing, which went by extremely
fast, I decided it was time for my humble system (MEG2 with 4 meg
memory! (brag brag)) to get activated once more for the further
extension of the real-time article.
Playing "Midi Maze II" is a lot more fun than I had anticipated.
It is basically a means of mass intercourse that yet has to find
its parallel in the world of computers. We started with 16 men
playing, and it was all very vorasciously vicious. Starting the
whole thing was the main time factor, but after about a quarter
of an hour things could happen.
During this mass intercourse orgy, the eternally extolled master
editor happened to dwell in once more. He has been through some
'Adventures' is a big word; more suitable here is 'mishaps'. The
guys from Electra decided to go down to Stuttgart and check out
the local computer (and liquor) shops. Kimmi and myself decided
to go with them.
After a ride in a (white!) Nissan van, we arrived in the centre
of this town which was indeed buzzing with life. Soon, the silly
Swedes found a computer store and raided it, eagerly comparing
prices of diskettes, STs, TTs, monitors etc. to those in Sweden.
Our presence in the store wasn't unnoticed, and soon a
'inconspicuous' store detective positioned himself near us,
eyeing us with interest. But we legally aqcuired all the stuff we
wanted so he left, leaving behind a feeling of inconspicuousness.
Now somebody in some computer store had the nerve to tell the
Swedes that there was some specialized Atari store somewhere near
Stuttgart so the whole lot of them ran to their car (after
purchasing about 10 litres of beer and some bottles of spirit)
and raced off to the fabled Atari store.
This store turned out to be a minute little storoid somewhere in
a shithole out of Stuttgart. It took about 45 minutes to find it
and I was immensely bored by the whole thing. Electra was a bit
disappointed too I guess since they didn't buy the RAM, the
monitor and the TT they were talking about in the car.
Now I am back, and saw about 16 systems hooked up in a huge
"Midi Maze" game. Pretty good fun this is. I watched Genital
Grinder as he ruthlessly assassinated his defenseless opponents.
But I spot "Llamatron" somewhere so it is time to BLAST!!!
What the fuck is "Llamatron" anyway ? "Midi Maze" was OK, a bit
slow and bad controls but a great idea. Yes, it's me operating
the waffle-machine again, do you really want to know all this ? I
am wearing a silly hat.
Richard is playing "Llamatron".
Stefan puts a (the) porno-mag in front of me to inspire me.
Tim just walked off.
Michael is watching what I'm writing.
It's very nice weather.
Do YOU think Richard will ever succeed in dividing this text
into separate paragraphs? I don't! (I do and I did, co-ED.
There are lots of empty bottles around me.
I went to two Yes-concerts this year.
The porno-mag contains a lot of pictures of people having sex
with animals, vegetables, guys with two penises and even other
people. Everyone thinks it's perverted and reads the entire
magazine to ensure that ALL of it is perverted. Stefan Kimlingen
is now being exposed to the mag. Loud cries of shock reverberate.
Sounds of heart-attacks manage not to be drowned out by Richard
playing "Llamatron" ("Phwoaarrr! Invincibility! Invincibility!
Wooaaaahhhh!", something like that).
The Icelander (you know who I mean) is sitting next to me. I
hate him because he shot me a lot of times during the "Midi
Maze" war. "Llamatron"... a flickering screen with millions of
sprites and pixels in gaudy, clashing colours. What fun.
"That guy in the mag didn't have two dicks! One of the girls was
sucking his testicle! That's all it was!"
Tim quote (a couple of minutes ago)
Well, phew, that's great news.
All went well with "Llamatron" until I went to level 70-
something. There I rapidly started losing lives which eventually
made my hiscore stay at somewhat over 800,000. Not bad for an
inexperienced go - after all, I haven't played it for two days
Tanis just re-appeared. I think he went to Stuttgart, maybe with
some more people. But I am not certain.
No. It's stupid to say 'bye'. Icelanders end with 'bye', as well
as some French persons. So I won't.
The "Midi Maze" session was extremely funny. I never played
"Midi Maze" before with 16 Computers. A few months ago we (Delta
Force) played it with 5 STs. That was nothing compared to today.
We did the team-play as well. There were four teams: Delta Force,
TLB & ULM, The Alliance, TEX (with Alcoholica and/or Richard) and
Legacy. At the beginning TEX were winning all the time, 'cause
they had -ME- and Mad Max in their team, but later Delta Force
became too good for those Thalion guys. Provoking an editor's
note, I must say, that Richard was doing quite bad. Hawhaw....
(It's CO-editor, actually, and I'm afraid you're right about me
being bad, co-ED.)
I have a serioso headache now and I don't really feel like
writing anything anymore. So hasta la pasta.
Just three minutes (or so) ago, I went outside for somewhat of a
leisurely stroll through the immediate vicinity of the gym. Some
people were playing table tennis, and a huge bunch was sitting on
a bit of lawn, talking about disk prices in 1986, coding on Amiga
and ST in that time, and what people do with the C-64 nowadays
(i.e. some pretty neat things to say the least, using once more
the powerful means of the English understatement).
There was some beer, crackers, chocolate cookies...and after I
had let my ass sink down on the lawn, there was some rain as
The rain started really slowly, like it often does, but then it
really started pouring down like different kind of domestic
mammals (felines and canines to be more precise). One can now
actually hear the rain crash down on the roof. And I do mean
So much for German weather in summer. Are we in England or what?
"What the fuck is this?!"
Jurie quote (from quite far away)
One of the Ripped Off team dudes quote (not Bilbo)
After having to finish playing table tennis with ES and
Questlord because of the shitty weather (it always rains and
rains....) we have nothing better to do than what Richard always
does - to write some unnecessary crap in this boring real time
article...... and because of this we'll now stop writing.
Only one thing is left to tell you: New Mode, Chris, Sammy Joe
and some other guys are caught under a tree by the sudden rain
Schnulz and Slime
Yeah! Today's the birthday of my little brother. So 'Happy
Birthday' Stephane!!! Apart from that, I've just finished my
Madcap routine which will therefore be mentioned as my Moiré
routine. It will definitely be included in our screen for the ICC
I'm the most luckiest guy on this f**king planet...I felt like
taking a walk here in Leutenbach, even looking for a shop or
something like that, and when I had been walking for about 15
minutes it started raining!! It came pouring down on me and I'm
soaking wet!! Damn...but I found a shop and I bought a Ritter
Sport chocolate 'Weisse-Trauben-Crisp'. It'd better be GOOD!!
The unlucky Icelander...
Ich glaub' ich muß kotzen!!!!
(Me too. The word 'Ritter' always gives me a bad taste in the
Eight time 0.5 litres = 4 litres of good old German beer drunk
in the rain outside of our lovely gymnasium (gym?!). Yeah, go for
gold and for websters!!!!
P.S. Going to toilet now....
Chris of Unlimited Matricks....... burp!
Carnera was here!!!!!
Hi Sticky-poos here!
Well the day got off to a slow start, but things have been
living up quite a bit this afternoon. There were 16 ST's all
linked up playing "Midi Maze" for about 4 hours this afternoon.
TEX seemed to be doing very well.....
There's been an inter-group table tennis competition going on
during the course of this afternoon - there are no winners as
yet. I think the final will be tomorrow.
Mad Max & Chris of ULM have just started 'jamming' on the mini
studio, with some funky music floating into my ears..~..
There is to be a "Midi Maze" competition this evening and Slime
has badgered everybody into taking part (I think the fact that
he said he would "Bite out your throat" if you didn't take part
had quite a bit to do with the resulting large list of
competitors (and I do beleive that he really would do what he
See 'ya later!
I'm still bored!
Then don't go and bore the others! Lame skinny smelly footed
Hello. Hello. Nothing to say.
DTX of Legacy
Hello there scum, this is Toxic Foetus Eater of ALCOHOLICA
typing in this rather shit computer. As you are probably bored
of reading all this shit text I will write something completely
Before I a came to this shitty convention I had to say farewell
to my bitch of a girlfriend, I could tell that she was sad
because when I walked out she said Toxic Toxic don't leave me,
what will I do, I can't have a piss orgy on my own!
So in order to keep her happy I pissed into a flask and dumped
it in the microwave. I can just imagine her now rubbing my shit
right inside her tight moist pussy and then chewing on the (by
now) crusty shit. She will no doubt then wash it down with my
still warm piss. Aaargh shit, I forgot, I also left her a desert
(which is of course the rusty piss that poured out of my ass just
Well did you enjoy this little bit of text, I hope you did as I
will write another lot later.
Oh, I forgot to say there was also bowl full of pus for her to
use as lip moisturizer, I hope she used it on the right set of
Eich hann de flemm!!
Toxic Foetus Eater
Aaaaahh! Hot cum fills my mouth as I just have paid a visit to
the local sperm-bank! Nothing is like a cup of fresh seamen (Do
you mean "semen" or "seamen" = sailors ? This is all very
suspect. Relayer & co-ED.)! I might just spend some time with
Toxic and Genital in a hot orgy in sex and violence with a
headless corpse just after we have consumed the spunk of twenty
shit-hot black ravenous sailors who have not had sex for nine
months. I can already imagine the warm, viscous anal pus that
tend to flood out through the anal passage as I shove up a ten
foot spike in it...
(Need I say more about censorship here? I guess you get the
point anyway, co-ED.)
About a quarter of an hour ago I re-arrived from having eaten
somewhere in Waiblingen. It was a Greek restaurant where we
(Questlord, ES, -ME-, Manikin, Oxygene, Gogo, Relayer and 2Stein
as well as me) were served by a truly stunningly beautiful
waitress. Times of Agapi dawned back on my mind but I suppressed
them. I only have to wait two days, so I should be patient.
When I came back Tanis was playing "Midi Maze" on my precious
little piece of machinery, but now everything is up to date again
so I can sign off and have someone else write.
Yeepeeeeeeeeeee! This is Dogue de Sandwich again (desperately)
writing on this BLOODY wyrd keyboard... "Ooh Crickey", what an
incredible ST! I just can't continue using such a thingy (or can
I?) and there are flies flying everywhere and walking on the
computer... More, Slime wants me to stop. So, I DO stop
Dogue de Mauve (did you notice I always write my name twice ?)
My machine has been 'confiscated' by the Delta Force members
(eh, Slime?) for the "Midi Maze" competition. This means that
about fifty or more people will play the game for hours in a row,
out of which eventually someone will appear who is better than
I am also competing, but I am pretty certain that I will not be
the one to come out best. I only played the game for the first
time this afternoon, and I really haven't got the knacks yet.
So now I am typing on a 1040STF, with those keys that are OK but
not quite so if you're used to a Mega ST. But I feel a strange
sense of inspiration emanating from this machine. I don't even
know whose it is, but I have this feeling that it is of a Great
What an honour to be able to touch the keys of his machine!
Also, and this is a lot less funny, I am now working on a colour
screen on 50 Hz. So I am already having trouble suppressing the
first stages of a bit of a headache. Damn screen. Damn hertz.
2Stein (Julian) and Vantage (Klaus) of the ST Connexion here.
Julian just came back from his trip to the Greek restaurant in
Waiblingen stinking of beer (how many beers did you drink, you
naughty boy?), but I think he had a great time.
Meanwhile, New Mode of TDF (Noooooo! Sorry! DF!) came outside
while Ajrarn and I were playing table tennis (you may call us
masochists, but actually we like table tennis a lot - even when
the grass is muddy and looking like a swimming pool... In fact
there was only mud left and they were taking their mud bath...),
and enroled us by force into the "Midi Maze" competition...
Although we have never really played "Midi Maze" in our younger
years, we have developed a deadly strategy against all the other
contestants, and we will win (I can vaguely hear someone
chuckling back there...). Sieg für die Meister!
Klaus & Julian (Yeah, 2Stein is back from Zaire, back to rule on
(He is dreaming, 2st.)
Well, things have certainly brightened up a bit since this
morning. I am really enjoying myself now! I've just taken part in
the "Midi Maze" competition (my first game ever!), but
unfortunately I did not fare so well. A guy from TEX and Slime of
Delta Force seem to be the best players...
Bilbo & myself need to go for some food. We are considering
going to the local pub, but with our understanding of German I am
sure that we would end up with something that we wouldn't want to
eat! We need to find someone who can speak German to go with us!
Stick of Ripped-Off (here again)
Hey Stick of Ripped-Off!
The guy from TEX it's me... really, it's -ME-...
Hope you get something to eat.
-ME- of TEX
Well, these jokes about -ME-'s name are getting a bit boring.
Enough of that. The ghost in the machine, the bug in the keyboard
processor, the stalker of the data bus, the haunter of the
ACIA's: He is back. I feel a bit guilty about writing so much,
but all the other guys write so little that I really can't help
it. Richard and I just exchanged some friendly insults about
writing styles and body proportions (you've got to do something
if Crush isn't around). I'm not fat!!! My embonpoint might have
developed itself a bit compared to the original muscular shape it
had before I went to Thalion, but this doesn't mean it is in any
Richard asks me not to stick out my tongue. I won't bother you
with the following conversation, but in the end we were...
(RATHER BRUTAL CUT)
A TT was brought in and set up. Mr. Horneman immediately went to
have a look at "Trex Warrior" that Erik is now quite proudly
demonstrating. It's rather fast.
"RATHER FAST. EVERYTHING IN UP TO 2 VBL's. RATHER FAST. AARGH."
Isn't the understatement a powerful thing?
I have to have a go at it myself soon, as I want to check out
whether or not my virus killer actually works in the TT extra
And once again, it's Richard who fills up this real-time article
- he's a fuckin' mad writer. Some minutes ago, we (almost
everybody here) have done a "Midi Maze" competition, and of
course I lost it... This is due to the fact that there are some
very good "Midi Maze" players here, like, for example, -ME- of
TEX, Slime of Delta Force and Tanis of TCB...
OK, I begin to be really bored by this fuckin' (Hi, New Mode!)
strange keyboard. So bye, and happy Christmas...
Bitmap polygon time on the TT. Erik has made sure he was first
on the machine. I have some stuff to do on it as well (sigh,
I just ate a pizza.....buuuuurpppp, ahhhh.
I mean I just had some fabulous pizza stuffed in my face and I
also downed some serious Tia Maria which makes me feel slightly
giddy. The are STILL playing "Midi Maze" which means that the
ultimate "Midi Maze" freak hasn't yet been proclaimed.
My eyes and my head hurt slightly which makes me think of
wicked sleeping I am going to (try) and do in my car tonight.
Right, Richard is dying to do something so....
I feel this literally enormous load of crap sitting behind my
anal muscle but I don't want to go to the loo here because it is
awfully smelly and equally dirty. Also, there are about four and
a half trillion gnats flying around that are just waiting to have
a bite at my vitals.
I think I am going to stay up most of the night today. I have
noticed that it was quite quiet today between 10 and 15 hours, so
I guess that'll be valid for tomorrow as well.
I really wish I was home. I miss Miranda. Also, I don't want to
go home by train, so I hope that some more Dutchies will arrive
with a little rented bus that has some space left. They were
supposed to arrive today, but they haven't. Maybe they'll appear
tomorrow - I hope so!
Holy shit! More and more people keep arriving and I feel the
dire need to go to my bag and retrieve the bottle of Tia and have
Twenty percent price discount on TT-computers here. So go out
and buy your own TT at Walliser Computer, Stuttgart, West
(I got 1000 bucks for this)
(Walliser Computer is the shop that brought the TT here, ED.)
No! I won't write more nonsense! No!
I just went to get rid of that enormous load of faeces behind my
anal muscle. I feel f.cking relieved, really. My thoughts about
the filthiness of the loo turned out to be exagerrated (except
for the smell, which is that of purely purulent piss).
I would like to mention that the machine I occupy is that of a
chap calling himself Leonardo. I wouldn't know which face to
attach to that nickname so I guess I don't really know him.
Stefan is standing around here trying to get people to help him
to finish a bottle of Tia Maria Schnapps.
"Das schreibt man mit zwei P's."
Anyway, I would like to thank -ME- for doing the magical 60 Hz
trick (ahem) on this machine. Now it's a lot better.

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.
