ST NEWS Volume 6 Issue 1
Released on Saturday, April 20th 1991

 Good morning/afternoon/night!
 And hail to you, dear readers of  ST NEWS  !
 We are,  once again,  very proud of being able to offer you yet  another  
disk filled to the brim with articles,  reviews and lots more,  this time  
almost entirely dedicated to the  ST NEWS  International Christmas Coding  
Convention that was held in Oss,  The Netherlands,  from December 21st to  
December 24th 1990!
 In this issue,  among other things,  you will be able to read the  real-
time  article we created there,  as well as details on how to order  some  
great Convention merchandise (T-shirts and videos),  and how to get  your  
hands on other issues of  ST NEWS  as such.
 The  most  amazing  thing on this disk is,  of  course,  a  folder  that  
contains  all the 3.5 Kb screens that were submitted to the 3.5  Kb  demo  
competition on the Convention. They are pretty amazing, believe me!
 Also,  of  course,  this issue features some of the  winning  Convention  
artwork  as  well  as  the usual bit of music  -  though  this  time  not  
programmed  by  Mad  Max (who is lazy as fuck) but by  The  Mind  of  The  
Quartermass Experiment.
 Isn't that nice?
 Well, we hope you think so.
 Copying this disk?
 How is it done?
 Well,  in case you're not very experienced (i.e. not experienced AT ALL)  
al  we  need  to tell you is that the disk is  double  sided,  not  copy-
protected, 80 tracks (0-79) and 10 sectors per track.  You can't possibly  
get it much easier! It can be copied using any copier you want (don't use  
"ACopy" because it sucks!), or even using the GEM desktop copy option.
 You should take the trouble to copy it to everyone you know, for this is  
Public  Domain  and should be read by all ST world ALL OVER  THE  F.CKING  
 Are we sufficiently sounding like "Maggie" already?
 Sorry.  Sick joke (very sick,  actually,  and not meant seriously for we  
like "Maggie" very much indeed).

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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