Hi Everyone,    
      This is my second Magazine update. We are about to go into
another year. It is amazing that many of us still band together,
supporting our machines. This is a great thing. I hope the trend
continues in 1998. Heck...  I hope I can remember to write the correct
year on my checkbook! :)

      Feedback for this project seems to be fantastic. Especially from
groups and schools who still use older systems. Unfortunately I am not
receiving alot of submissions for articles. The few that I have
received are fantastic. But I need more! I am also still in need of a
title for the magazine. After all, this magazine is for you! So Please
send in your submissions. 

      Here is a copy of my first post:  
        Currently, I am working on a little magazine for older
computers(mostly commodore and atari but all others are welcome to) to
help support users out there. There seems to be alot of support for
older systems just not in one place. I want to do features and
listings on web-sites, companies, individuals who support these older
machines. I would like to have articles on hardware upgrades and
modifications for these machines along with new and innovative
software. I will also provide very low cost advertising for those who
wish to sell their hardware/software new or used. I think I can
publish it quarterly with no problems. The format will be simple and
cost effective for me to produce, 8.5in by 11in pages folded in
half(booklet form), and will hopefully have at least 16 pages. I have
not figured out a price for this yet but more than likeley about $1
will pay for the printing and the postage. I will be taking
submissions for articles right now. They can pretty much consist of
anything(reviews, opinions, programming, hardware modifications, and
most importantly getting these machines online.) All submissions will
get proper credit! Also I am in need of a name for this mag, so please
send in your ideas! 
        Please send all submissions to:   

        I hope something like this would be of interest to others.

Thank You,
