Time certainly flies when you're having fun!  It's Hard to believe that it's
already May!  The Jaguar has been out roughly half a year and we're only
getting a taste of its prowess with the release of Tempest 2000.  Better turn
up the AC because this summer is going to be a hot one with the Jaguar and
(believe it or not) the Lynx!  Read all about it in the Lynx and Jaguar
sections.  There, you'll find an interview with Ted Tahquechi, Software
Production Manager for Atari Corp.  Lynx editor, Barry Cantin, discusses the
future of the Lynx and the Jaguar with Mr. Tahquechi.  The interview has been
split-up by game system and placed in their respected support areas. If you
own neither of these game machines, you're still not left out!  CAIN is proud
to announce "CAIN Atari Fun Fest 94", featuring Atari's Jaguar, computers, and
much more!  See the Free-Net news section for further details.  Finally, check
out the new addition to CAIN, the "Atari Classic Gaming Corner."  Believe it
or not these nostalgic machines are still alive and well.  This month editor
Fred Horvat discusses an inexpensive game developers' kit for these classics
that's perfect for the budding game designer!

The Cleveland Free-Net Atari SIG will be having a conference with Jeff Minter,
programmer of Tempest 2000 for the Jaguar.  The conference will be on
May 29th (Sunday) at 7 PM EDT.  Even though Jeff is in the UK right now, it
is possible for us to have this conference through the miracle of Internet.
NOW we are beginning to see the advantages of Free-Net.

If you haven't already registered on Free-Net, you may want to do so as soon
as possible.  Even if you do not have "telnet" access right now and have to
call long-distance, you may be able to "teleport" into the Cleveland Free-Net
later from a Free-Net city that is being established in your area.

The CFN Atari SIG has also changed somewhat by the addition of an Atari News
area, access to CAIN Newsletters direct from the CAIN Newsroom, changes to
Reference Desks in support areas, and additions to the Lynx and Jaguar Support
Areas.  If you haven't checked out the CFN Atari SIG lately, you are missing
out on great information.

Finally, if you read the transcript of the online conference with Atari
United!'s Patti Barbiero, you might get the impression that there is demand
for online representatives from Atari Corporation.  This is indeed the case.
The Cleveland Free-Net is probably the largest most accessible system in the
world today thanks to its Internet connection.  There are a lot of questions
that users have for Atari, but we are unable to answer them because we do not
represent Atari.  There is hope though!  Ted Tahquechi expressed interest
in representing Atari Corp. on Free-Net.  It is just a matter of him having
enough time to do it.
