Thanks to Paul Clucas for sorting out the magazine. I send him the
cobbled together text. He checks it for spellin etc and then finishes it all
off neatly with the header files and so on. The only files he doesn't run his
eagle eye over are the LAST message file (the file of stuff sent between
deadline and issue) and this editorial.
Paul asked me to remove this thank you from the issue, however, he saves me so
many hours of work that I could not bring myself to do so!
Another Thank you must go to our member in Austria, Mark Usher. He tested this
issue out for 'flow'. So if something doesn't work from the menu of the DFS
version, it is his fault!
These are the discs that have been added to the pool or have had alterations
made to them since issue 53:
TBI-109 Crypt Paint II ADFS and Master only. A superb drawing package
containing lots of clipart and fonts.
TBI-110 Space Pics. Four DFS discs of digitised Apollo mission pictures.

A few members have asked why their ID's do not appear at the top left hand
corner of the magazine menus any more. The answer is time. It is still
possible to have your ID appear there. Issue day takes a whole day out, I cut
out entering the ID's to save a little time. If you want to enter your own ID,
it is a simple enough matter, just replace the three asterisks at the start of
the program "!BOOT" with your ID.
