Welcome to the Atari Portfolio Palmtop Computer Summary Section!

    First and foremost, please be aware that this section is available for
reference only and is NOT an advertisement in any way for these products.
Its purpose is to provide you with information on what is available and how
to get it.

    And REMEMBER, prices may change.

    In order to avoid confusion, please follow these instructions
when contributing a summary.

    When entering the subject of a summary, do the following:

    SUBJECT: name of title/application/commercial,p.d.,or shareware

    The name of title is almost self-explanatory, all you do is write
the name of the title you are reviewing or summarizing.

    You then press "/" to separate it from the next bit of information
that you will provide to the user.

    The name of the application in which the title belongs to.
For example, if it is a game, you would enter "Game".  If it is
for desktop publishing, you would enter "DTP".  Or if it is for
music, you would enter "Music".  The user looking for a summary may be
looking for a title to be used in a specific application and does not wish
to read through all the other summaries that does not deal with that

    You then press "/" to separate it from the next bit of information
that you will provide to the user.

    If the title is commercial, public domain, or shareware.  The user
looking for a summary may be looking for a certain program that does not
cost anything for him to use such as public domain.  Or the user may
be looking for a program where he can get it now and then send the
author money for his or her work later.  The user may only want to read
summaries for commercial software titles and not read articles on p.d.
or shareware programs.  By putting "commercial", "p.d." or "shareware" at
the end of the subject, you are giving the user needed information
automatically without having him or her guess.
    If you wish to contribute summaries that have been printed in a user group
newsletter, online magazine, or publication, you must first get
permission to reprint it here.  You must also give them proper credit.
By not giving them credit, you are breaking the law.

    Each contribution that you give will be delayed until it is
validated by one of the Atari SIGOps.  This should take less than
48 hours.

    And lastly, if you take a summary from this section and have it
reprinted in your newsletter or any other publication, please include this
necessary information unless the summary posted here was taken from
another source:

    Name of article
    Author's name
    Cleveland Free-Net Atari SIG
    type "go atari" at any menu

    Thank you and please do your part in making this section a success,
without you, this section is useless.

Thank you,

Your Atari SIGOps
