Alive 3

Here's another stupid  idea brought to  you by STS : the Scene Quizz ! I'm going
to  present  you  15  scene(ers) related  questions, most of them being _really_
stupid but please remember this _IS_ a stupid  game. So don't feel  offended, or
worse, pissed off because this is just about fun and nothing more :) You'll need
a pencil and piece of  paper  to write  your answers  to my  questions. Then (no
cheating okay ?) when you reach  the end  of this  file, you will  know how many
points you have collected and therefore how "good" a scener you are. Let's go !!

 1. The word 'Scene' stands for :

    a. Senseless Collection of Elephants Native from Estonia
    b. being a scener yourself you know realise that you have no idea about it

  3. An often seen TOS error is hiding ! find it !

    a. for unknown  reasons, the machine  hangs up  and displays  a blue screen
    with brainless explanations that won't help you at all to find the problem.
    b. after say 10 hours of activity, the TOS still doesn't fuck up : whaaat ?
    c. when trying to run a prg  you can be  asked if you want to see the file,
    print it or cancel.

  5. How did Checkpoint find the name SURETRIP ?

    a. after they took an insurance on their car

 14. Moondog's most frequently used word in UCM is :

  a. I hate Atari

 Now that you must have done the maths (I wonder how  many of you had to recount 
more than twice :) you can read the sections below that will reveal how good an
 Atarian Scener you are.

 You have between 0 and 13 points : erm  not too  good pal ! Are  you sure  you
 even have an  Atari ???? Maybe you  should turn it on then. Surely you must be
 the kind of guy who hangs around on IRC  always asking  stupid questions about
 who did what ? When ? Really ? They  did  that ? Why  no one  told  me ? Don't
 worry, you just spend too much time on your PC while your ST lies in a closet.
 The remedy is quite easy  and 100% satisfactory : go and  clean up that old ST
 and download the demos you have missed.

 You have between 14 points and 29 points : don't go shouting ravingly !!!! Tho
 respectable, your score shows that you don't know you scene fellows that much.
 Maybe you should pay  a bit more  attention and  talk to these nice people and
 learn about their status, productions, whatever  but _use_ the  opportunity to
 communicate ! We are  not on  Atari for  fame or  competition (these days) but
 we're there  because it's a  nice  place  with  creative  people  and trustful
 friends. What ? You hadn't realised it yet ? Damn it's worse than I thought :)

 You have between 30 points and 39 points : this  is good ! Not  only you are a
 good (:) Atarian but also an educated one ! Maybe you have learnt a few things
 with this stupid game after all, who knows ? :) If you  scored +35 I only have
 one word in mind : braaaaaavvooooooooo! :)
