A few days after the launch of ST NEWS Volume 1 Issue 6,  one  of 
the  people  that used to write articles for us,  Rob  de  Swaan, 
died.  He was aged 34.  It is sad to hear of the death of such  a 
young man,  who was a computer freak as good as they come.  It is 
believed that he was the first man to solve "The Pawn", something 
that definately tells us how persevere a man he was.
Rob  leaves behind his wife Debbie and his little son  Bruce,  to 
whom we will therefore dedicate Synth Sample III.
It  doesn't seem right that someone as young a Rob is  torn  away 
from  his wife,  his son and his friends.  If there is  something 
like heaven, he will now undoubtedly reside there...

All  people  that work with ST NEWS hereby wish to  extend  their 
sincere condolances to Mrs.  de Swaan-Rosenboom and little Bruce,

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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