 Before  you  start  complaining:  This is  not  a  real  article
although  it's in the menu bar as such,  but merely a means  with
which  I  hope  to  credit  those  who  have  made  the  ST  NEWS
International  Christmas  Coding Convention 1990 the  success  it
was.  I hope that the real-time article,  the video shots and  my
miserable  excuse for a memory have sufficed for everybody to  be
mentioned here.
 A special note to those who are not mentioned in this list: I am
very sorry. Tough shit.
 A  special note to those who I did not know to which group  they
belonged: You have been placed in the 'independents'.
 A  special  note to all mentioned:  The order  is  alphabetical,
indexed on group name.
 A special further note: Some people have mentioned their name on
the vid',  but in a very inunderstandable way. So that's why some
groups have "And x more members" in them...

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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