Let me introduce myself.  My name is Thomas (TJ) Ferreira and if you have
not noticed lately in the Atari newsgroups that I have been posting notes
about a possible new Atari based magazine that I may be producing.  Here are
the letters I have posted thus far:

#1 message *
Hello there folks!  I am doing a little research and thought the newsgroups
would be a great place to start.  I have been toying with the idea for years
to produce an Atari based magazine and would like to get some feedback from
all you Atarians out there.

Here in North America we do have (2) very fine Atari based magazines; Atari
ST Informer from USA and Current Notes from Canada.  I want to feel the
waters and see if the current market would receive well a new and fresh look
at an Atari based magazine.  

I have many very good, fun, and new ideas for this Atari magazine and am
almost to the point of jumping aboard and joining the Atari magazine crowd.
This magazine will mostly cater to the Atari computer line but will have
some info for the gamers at heart.

If you are one that currently subscribes to other Atari magazines and would
most likey subscribe to a new magazine, I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!!

Please email me at:

Just let me know your thoughts and if you truly believe you would be a
potential subscriber.  

Thanks for help and look forward to many many responses.  I would also love
to hear from other Atari based magazines on there ideas and insights of the
Atari magazine market.

Thanks Again!!!!

I have had this message posted online for a couple days and have had a good
amount of responses.  If you have not responded so far my email about your
ideas and  thoughts of this new magazine, THEN I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.  

I wish to hear your ideas and responses.  Do you want to keep the Atari
platform ALIVE and WELL??  Then respond and be heard.  I want this magazine
to happen for me, for you, for advertisers, and for all computer
enthusiasts.  This Atari platform is FUN and we have years of life left
right now if we all work together.  You never know, if we keep the ball
rolling long enough, someone or some company may bring back the Atari
concept!  Would it not be great if someone acquired the rights to say the
never release ST BOOK notebook that Atari was producing and revamp slightly
for todays market!! I would buy one for sure.  

Anyway, I want to hear from you and need the further data to get the
magazine going.  EMAIL TODAY!!!!!

Original Letter below......
I removed because you have above....

Anyway, as you can tell I am actively collecting data so I can make this
possible venture a reality.  Since you are still dealing with Atari product,
do you believe you would be interested in this new magazine to:

A.) Advertise
B.) Subscribe
C.) Sell Retail if you are a dealer
D.) Make available to your user groups if you are part of a club
E.) etc...

I want to make sure enough readers and advertisers are out there for this
new magazine.  If you develop products, I would also like to discuss
possible special subscription rates for your registered users.  If they buy
your product, they also get special rates on this new magazine, etc...
Ideas like this so we can all benefit and keep the user informed.  I have
many dealer/developer ideas I would like to use when the time comes and
would like to discuss....

Anyway, just pop me a note about your thoughts on this project and we will
go from there.
