ST NEWS Volume 2 Issue 6
Released on Saturday, September 12th 1987
Dedicated to Willeke

Hi there!
Welcome to ST NEWS Volume 2 Issue 6,  launched on September  12th  
1987 (and, as a matter of fact, again dedicated to Willeke).
As I write this,  it's getting quite late (or should I rather use  
the  word  'early'?) and I seem to expect the sun rising  at  any  
moment. I must surely get some sleep soon, or I will drop down on  
my ST and my 'beard' will grow stuck in my keyboard.
On this disk, you should find the following files:
 A folder called    AUTO
 A folder called    DATA
 A folder called    PROGRAMS
 A file called      DESKTOP.INF     (The SAVEd Desktop)
 A file called      READ_ME.1ST     (This file)
 A file called      ST_NEWS.PRG     (The ST NEWS program)
 A file called      ST_NEWS.RSC     (The ST NEWS Resource file)
The  AUTO  folder should contains 1 item  (TURBO.PRG),  the  DATA  
folder  should contains 51 files  (CODE1.??-CODEA.??  and  DOC01-
DOC41)   and  the  PROGRAMS  folder  should  contains  one   file  
If  you  want  to load ST NEWS,  just double click  on  the  name  
"ST_NEWS.PRG" and the rest will turn out to be self-explanatory.

P.S. Good night!

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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