 "After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box."
                                                  Italian proverb

                      by Richard Karsmakers

 The second time this new column appears, and it's still hardly a
very useful one,  but it's a nice trivial thing and it's not  too
big anyway, so who'd give a toss anyway (it's also some promotion
for  the kind of output that the potentially  forthcoming  "Brain
Management Utility" database will be capable of doing).

 And that is what happened on this day, November 25th, in earlier

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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.
