BIG SURPRISE (THE BIGGEST EVER):
THE ST NEWS CORRESPONDENCE ADDRESS
by Richard Karsmakers
The winds sweeps the desolate street. Or is it the sun that
burns the asphalt?
We couldn't care less. If you feel you've got something to say
to us, no matter what the weather is like, please take the
trouble to jot down something on paper (or a tape, or video, or
piece of ladies' underwear) and send it to us. We like anything
(yes, we aren't particularly choosy). Part of the reasons behind
setting up this correspondence address was to gain contacts with
freaky computer people from all over the globe. So far we have
gotten into touch with Nutty Norwegians, Extravagent English and
even an Insane Icelander - but where are the Furious French, the
Amazing Americans, the Incomprehensible Indians, the Jolly
Japanese, the Fabulous Fins and the Grotesque Germans? We
appreciate loads of correspondence, both idiotic and highly
Do you think you've written a nice review of a game, utility,
or pieca hardware? Have you written something non-computer-
related that you'd like to see published? Has your girlfriend
finished with you because she saw Don Johnson on TV? Do you like
Metallica or guitar wizards? Do you read books? Do you breathe
several times a minute? Are your organising a Coding Convention?
Are you bidepal? Just writen something and send it to us! It
would have to be pretty damn bad for it not to get published.
We are NOT some kind of elite corps of writers. We want to make
lots of friends, and we want to offer every computer freak the
possibility to become FAMOUS (well, a bit).
So if the above has convinced you to get into touch with us,
send your correspondence (or anything else that doesn't contains
NL-5343 BT Oss
Also if you have access to Email or something similar, you might
be able to reach Stefan at:
If you'd like to have it read by me, please make good ol' Stefan
(who lives at the correspondence address) thoroughly aware of
that fact - he often tends to forget mentioning things to me. If
you lack having complete and utter trust of Stefan's memory (like
I do), you can always send your correspondence to me directly:
NL-3523 GV Utrecht
If you want Stefan to read it, please make me thoroughly aware
of that fact!
Er...."wot's ze big surprise?"
Well, there isn't any, really. But we had to employ some kind of
trick to get you to read this article (I bet you would never have
read this normally).
Sorry for that. Sue us. Or, even better: Send us a long and
emotional letter why you are disappointed because of the lack of
surprise. Direct your letter to any of the above addresses...
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.
