QUESTIONS & ANSWERS by Richard Karsmakers

Let's  start right off with the  questions/advertisements/answers 
that  came  in by our mail since the launch of ST NEWS  Volume  2 
Issue 2...

I  am looking for a monochrome monitor.  I am not willing to  pay 
more than 350 Dutch guilders!

I have a problem:  A have a 1040 STF computer with a Panasonic KX 
printer.  When  I connect both devices by means of  a  Centronics 
cable,  all I get is some form feeds - but no text. My questions: 
How must a Centronics cable be built up?  And is there perhaps  a 
software printer driver to work with the Panasonic printer?

Is there someone who can adapt "Signum!" for me, so that it works 
correctly with a Star Gemini 10X printer?  I am quite  desperate! 
In exchange, I can help you to adapt "Fleet Street" for the 10X.
                                   Herman de Vrees, Nuenen

Can someone help me?  I have a General Electric TXP-1000 printer, 
but  I  cannot seem to make a hardcopy that doesn't look  like  a 
'tiger-print'. Is there a program that does the job properly?
                                   Ernst Blok, Middelharnis

This  problem was originally published in ST NEWS Volume 2  Issue 
2,  and we now have an answer. It cannot be simply explained, but 
we have just added two programs on this ST NEWS disk that  should 
do the job.  One of them is an accesory,  that needs to be copied 
out of the PROGRAMS folder!

I am looking for original software. Prices to be negotiated.

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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