Here comes a little sensation: For less than $1000 IBM will produce a homecomputer with the following dates: Intel 80286, VGA (256 colours by 640 * 480 pixles), CD-ROM. It will come out at the end of this year. The softwarefirms from America will soon release games for this new machine, and perhaps there will start a new scene... (Rumours are around about an Intel 80386 instead of a 80286!) That sounds funny, a scene on a IBM-computer!
APPLE wants to produce a home-computer, too.
3 members of IT joined the CRYPTOBURNERS: Gladiator (Sound), Walkman (Sound), Tec (Code). Now, 18 members.

All stupid things (jokes!) we wrote about the CJ are of course not true. We thought that they understand them, but they didn't. (BRS)
The Gfx-card for the AMIGA 2000 is finnished. Maximal resolution: 848*610 pixles in all 4096 colours but you need an Muliscan-Monitor.
