 "A true friend is someone who is there for you when he'd  rather
be anywhere else."

 Should  you  want  to send anything to ST NEWS (and  I  do  mean
anything - letters,  videos,  tapes,  CDs,  demo tapes, bootlegs,
cash,  pictures,  etc.),  please send it to the address mentioned
below.  You may also send birthday cards on or around the 3rd  of
November, or Christmas cards around the end of the year. Whatever
you  do,  if you expect a reply you shouldn't forget  to  include
valid  Dutch  stamps or preferably  International  Reply  Coupons
(IRCs - little green pieces of paper available at your local post
office).  Including  cash to cover postage costs is OK  with  me,
too,  but  bear  in mind never to send  any  coins.  Packages  or
letters  that  don't include something with which  I  can  obtain
sufficient  reply  postage will have to be of more  than  regular
interest for me to reply to at all!  Some people have been  known
to see this as a challenge...

 As  they  say:  I will expect my mailbox to be assailed  by  the
proverbial flurry of rabid mailmen (and possibly worse)!  I  also
have  an  email  account in case you may  alternatively  want  to
contact me there. I will expect my electronic mail box (which has
email  account  address "")  to  be
assailed by the proverbial flurry of electrons (and let's keep it
at that).
 If  you  want the latest issue of ST NEWS sent to you  (do  note
that  this  offer is for email only!) just inquire  at  my  email
address. You'll even get sortof a subscription then.


 The regular mail address will probably remain valid for a while,
though  as of the next issue of ST NEWS I'll have a P.O.  Box  to
which all mail should be sent as of that moment!  Try to locate a
more  recent  issue of ST NEWS to find out what the  new  address
will  be!  I  cannot emphasize this enough - try to find  out  my
proper address and save yourself (and me) a lot of hassle!
 If  you want to find out more about the circumstances around  my
changing address, please read the "Editorial" article.

 Engaging "wait for reactions"

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.
