Article #12 (17 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.log From: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Subject: Apr.17,1991 Portfolio Support Team Reply-To: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Date: Sun May 26 11:55:44 1991 On Wednesday, April 17, 1991, the Atari SIGOps announced the beginning of the Free-Net Atari Support Teams by introducing the Portfolio Support Team: Date: Wed Apr 17 16:00:05 1991 Atari Portfolio Users, The Cleveland Free-Net Atari SIG has just expanded as you can tell. There is now more space specifically for the Portfolio Palmtop Computer. However, there is also plenty of problems that need to be worked out as well. PROBLEMS: The first problem is that none of the Atari SIGOps own a Portfolio computer. This is probably a good reason why there is little support for the machine on the Atari SIG. The second problem is that we need to fill the space up that was set aside for the Portfolio. This is the section for the Portfolio now: <<< Portfolio Info & Support >>> (go portfolio) 1 About Portfolio Info & Support 2 Portfolio Palmtop Description 3 Published Articles (w/permission) 4 Software/Hardware Summaries 5 Software/Hardware Reviews 6 Tips & Tricks for your Computer ------------------------------------------------ h=Help, x=Exit Free-Net, "go help"=extended help Your Choice ==> This section, as it is now, is completely useless to many of us. The reason it is useless is because there is no information in it because no one is contributing to it. SOLUTIONS: The solution to the second problem is for you to contribute information. This is a lot easier said then done and that is why the Atari SIG would like to establish a special team to do this very thing. It would be called, Cleveland Free-Net Atari SIG Portfolio Support Team As a member, it will be your job to actively contribute to making this section the best that it can be. You will be taking responsibility among other members of the group for its success or failure. There can be many benefits to being a member of the support team. It may be very possible, if your team does a good job, for you being noted for creating one of the best Portfolio Support areas in the nation. Your name will appear on a regularly posted list of members of the Support Team. You will work with the leader of the Support Team when one is found. There is many ways to get information, reviews, and summaries related to the Portfolio and as soon as the team is created, we will begin. The solution to the first problem of not having an Atari SIGOp with a Portfolio is not a real problem as long as a leader shows up among the Portfolio Support Team. The Cleveland Free-Net has a larger support area for the Portfolio than many other computer systems. It actually supports the computer you own. It can be accessed from anywhere in the world and can grow tremendously. If you would like to join the Portfolio Support Team, contact Len Stys (aa399) or the Atari SIG (xx004). Please stress if you are interested in becomming a member or leader of the team. Thank you.
