BIG SURPRISE (THE BIGGEST EVER):
THE ST NEWS CORRESPONDENCE ADDRESS
by Richard Karsmakers
Do you think you've written a nice review of a game, utility,
or pieca hardware? Have you written something non-computer-
related that you'd like to see published? A true novel perhaps?
Has your girlfriend finished with you because she saw Don Johnson
on TV? Do you like Metallica or guitar wizards? Do you read
books? Do you hate Dickens? Do you breathe several times a
minute? Do you study English? Are your organising a Coding
Convention? Are you bidepal? Do you read from the left to the
right? Do you like the ST? Do you hate Speccies? Are you in love?
Are you not in love? Do you want to get in contact with other ST
users? If any of these questions are answered by "yes" or "no"
(or even "maybe", "I don't know" or "I guess) then you're the
person we're looking for. Just write something and send it to us!
If you feel you've got something to say to us, no matter what it
is about, please take the trouble to jot down something on paper
(or a tape, or video, or piece of ladies' underwear) and send it
to us. We like anything (yes, we aren't particularly choosy).
Part of the reasons behind setting up this correspondence address
was to gain contacts with freaky computer people from all over
the globe - lots of 'em! So far we have gotten into touch with
Nutty Norwegians, Extravagent English and even an Insane
Icelander - but where are the Furious French, the Amazing
Americans, the Incomprehensible Indians, the Swell Swahilians,
the Jolly Japanese, the Baffling Belgians, the Stupefying
Swedes, the Ideal Irish, the Absolute Australians, the Fabulous
Fins and the Grotesque Germans? We appreciate loads of
correspondence, both idiotic and of high intellectual value!
We are NOT some kind of elite corps of writers. We want to make
lots of friends, and we want to offer every computer freak the
possibility to become FAMOUS (well, a bit maybe).
So if the above has convinced you to get into touch with us,
send your correspondence (or anything else that doesn't contain
something that ticks) to:
NL-5343 BT Oss
If you'd like to have it read by me, please make good ol' Stefan
(who lives at the correspondence address) thoroughly aware of
that fact - he often tends to forget mentioning things to me. If
you lack having complete and utter trust of Stefan's memory (like
I do), you can always send your correspondence to me directly:
NL-3523 GV Utrecht
If you want Stefan to read it, please make me thoroughly aware
of that fact!
Er...."wot's ze big surprise?"
Well, there isn't any, really (again). But we had to employ some
kind of trick to get you to read this article (I bet you would
never have read this normally).
Sorry for that. Sue us. Or, even better: Send us a long and
emotional letter why you are disappointed because of the lack of
surprise. Direct your letter to any of the above addresses (but
preferably mine as it was my idea in the first place)...
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.
