(Maggie 10th anniversary bulletin)
I figured people would instantly skip past "Maggie Articles Wanted" on the
menu bar, so I chose a title that would grab your attention. Now you have
been suitably fooled, and are here regardless, read on.
The state of play, as of mid-Sept..
We rapidly approach the 500 kilobyte mark for text. Only a small amount of
this has been done by people other than myself. Thanks go out to those
people who already have contributed, and a whole heap of unused thanks is
sitting in the corner, awaiting the floods of other contributors still to
make themselves heard!
The idea of a brand new shell is somewhat doubtful now, as Mr Pink is very
hard at work, but this is for the benefit of his employers. To get this
issue finished within this millenium, certain compromises have to be made!
I am open for suggestions or contributions for a front-end picture (ST and
Falcon shells), and a 4-8 channel MOD tune for the Falcon shell. If anyone
is interested, please get in touch.
For those people who were expecting us "sometime in September", this has
been pushed back. ("So what's new?" You all cry!) An optimistic projection
has a release date for the Stafford Atari Show in late November, a less
optimistic projection has the STNICC in December as an alternative. What are
your thoughts on that subject?
Now WAKE UP!
At time of writing, this leaves a period of 2-3 months maximum for the
appropriate action to be taken. This will probably be greatly reduced by the
time this first issue of Alive! hits the streets. I will be emailing certain
key people directly before then, but this may be your only chance to
respond. Don't hesitate, if you have something you are burstingly keen to
get in this 10th anniversary issue of Maggie, then get on the case and get
in touch with me right now!
email@example.com - In case you have forgotten, which I don't think is likely?
Now, after the worthy stuff and begging bit is over, the part of the text
you have all been waiting for.

matching panties and suspenders, she is *SNIP!*
(Oh, what a rotten miserable git I am!)
