ST NEWS Volume 2 Issue 8
Released on Saturday, December 19th 1987
Dedicated to Willeke
This is the newest version of ST NEWS - Volume 2 issue 8,
launched on December 19th 1987. This time (for the first time
since three issues) the disk is again normally formatted (no
Instruction for copying it to a double sided disk:
The directory contains hidden files. These can be copied if the
whole disk icon is dragged on the target disk WINDOW (!). Only
when performing that operation, hidden files are copied. Copying
to another single sided disk can be done using any copy program
that can copy non-protected disks.
You can actually consider yourself lucky that this ST NEWS came
out at all. I actually had a lot of trouble getting all articles
in time, and Eerk Hofmeester took the bonus by delivering his
article on friday evening, December 18th. And if that wasn't
enough, he found out that he had left the keys in the car just
after having shut the door....
I won't specify the cracker's mentality that Eerk explained on
that evening, since it would probably cause the bankruptcy of
"STRIKE-a-LIGHT". Anyway, with help of some more people, he
skrambled the door and got in again (and the worse thing: It was
Hubert van Mil's car, that now looks Pre-W.W. I!)
Something that I stress very much in this ST NEWS issue is the
fact that there is a virus on the ST. Read all about the virus as
well as a way to aniihilate it in this issue!
The only thing that now remains is to wish you a merry Christmas
and a happy (and virus-free) new year!

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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