Those attending the April 4th and 5th event in Toronto include: Dorothy Brumleve Codehead Software WizWorks Wintertree Software Fair Dinkum ABC Solutions Gribnif ISD Marketing Joppa Missionware Software Dragonware Sudden Inc. Clear Thinking Atari Interface Magazine PI Precision Imports Compustore Goldleaf Branch Always JMG Software Compuworld Click Here Double Click David Small Micro-Creation British Magazines Best Electronics Toad Computers Software Sales GEnie Canada Compustore MTST (Atari Club) HBO (Atari Club) New products and programs continue to be announced for what is rapidly turning into an extraordinary Atari event. Micro- Creations' new GIME BBS program will be available at ACE '92, and a FREE COPY of the single line version will be presented to any Atari club president who can present identifying credentials. (They also have a dual line BBS program available.) Gadgets by Small will be present, and word is that the Mega ST FastBoard will be available at the show. The printed word will be well represented as well. Atari Interface Magazine will have a booth, and an introductory copy of Atari Advantage magazine will be presented to the first 500 attendees each day of the show. The Computer Paper, a Canada wide computer newspaper that has just started publishing in Ontario, will be given to each person attending, and copies of the well- known Current Notes will also be available. British Magazines is a local distributor who imports a number of foreign computer magazines at discount prices, and will be featuring the latest in foreign publications. Many clubs will have their own newsletters available, and a number of developers regularly issue their own newsletters and bulletins to keep users up to date on new programs and updates. Video digitizing will be featured at the Goldleaf booth, and visitors will have the opportunity to get their picture taken with some well known Atari personages (whether the famous person is there or not!). Jopppa's new STraight FAX software (designed to work with Class 2 compliant send/receive FAX modems) links ST computers to FAX machines, and GEMulator will help bridge the gap for IBM/Atari users. Atari has long been able to emulate IBM and Apple hardware, now users will be able to run their Atari programs on IBM machines. A continued stream of door prize donations continues to increase the potential value of an ACE admission ticket. Door prizes will be drawn every half hour throughout both days of ACE '92, and there will be a number of extra draws and prizes throughout each day. In addition, many dealers and developers will be offering special draws and show specials at individual booths.
