The Australian Scene
           THE AUSSIE SCENE

whose tunes are very  good.  The  best   
coder in Australia would be ...Zaphod!   
His work  has  not  been  seen  by all   
freaks,  but  the  majority  (all cool   
crews) reckon that Zaphod is the no.1!   
Some may argue that  The Predators are   
the best,  but  Zaphod's demos,  games   
beat theres hands down.  Well  I  hope   
that  you  contact  more  of us Aussie

think. By mail trading, we usually get   
stuff a week or  two after the release   
date.  But by modem,  the day after!!!

Bloodsuckers Partyreport
            Bloodparty '90



On Friday 8th. of June a copyparty which was organized by Bloodsuckers took
place in Kuopio.
When we arrived at about 5 pm we had to pay the entrance fee of 150 mk.
There were just a few freaks (Chrome+Silents) sitting there and being bored.
Later in the evening some cool dudes like Scoopex SF, D-MOB, Securitate, Vision,
Disknet came and the organizers told that RSI and Defjam would come later (they 
didn't). During the night everybody was coding something and someone tried to 
sleep but they failed.
On saturday a few guys from Wizzcat and Badnews arrived and we played pool and
copied some software and tried to have fun (we managed).
Securitate released their party-intro.
Chrome won the democompo with their nice demo. In the evening Securitate left
because they were bored (?) 
On Sunday almost everybody left because there was nothing to do. When we packed
our Amiga we noticed something funny: somebody had stolen my friend's disk-
drive. Thanks!!!! (Funny? - Ed)
In fact the party was really boring because there were only about 40 people
and the organization wasn't good at all.
The best thing on party was those nice intros which were released.

The Italian Scene
         ITALIAN SCENE REPORT

WELL ITALY IS A NICE PLACE TO LIVE, AND IT'S ALSO THE PLACE WHERE MOST OF THE
NORTH EUROPEAN PEOPLE DREAM TO SPEND THEIR HOLIDAYS.
THE MENTALITY OF AN ITALIAN COMPUTER BUYER IS MUCH DIFFERENT FROM THE
MENTALITY OF ANOTHER EUROPEAN BUYER, BECAUSE THEY BUY COMPUTERS ONLY TO
GAMBLE, LIKE YOU CAN SIMPLY DO WITH A SHIT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM.
IN ITALY, ILLEGAL SOFTWARE SELLING IS VERY ACTIVE, BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT
OF LAMERS WHO BUY GAMES FROM FOREIGN GROUPS AND SELL THEM ALL OVER
THE COUNTRY GAINING SO MUCH MONEY, THAT ONE OF THESE LOSERS HAS OPENED A
REAL COMPUTER SHOP WITH THESE MONEY.
RECENTLY THIS BIG LOOSER USED TO PAY BIG AMOUNTS OF MONEY TO BIG CREWS TO JOIN
THEM IN ORDER TO USE THEIR GLORIOUS NAMES FOR SELLING.
SOME OF THESE GUYZ PAY UP TO $4000 DOLLARS EVERY MONTH.
NATURALLY NOT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD SUCH AN EXPENSE SO OTHER SMALL LOSERS
BUY MODEMS JUST TO DLOAD THE LATEST WAREZ FOR SELLING.
THE POST IS NOT SO BAD FOR INTERNAL USE, BUT IF YOU SEND TO ANOTHER COUNTRY
WITH THE EXPRESS POSTAGE, YOUR PACKAGE WILL TAKE UP TO 7 DAYS!!
ABOUT THE BBS SCENE HERE IN ITALY, THERE ARE A LOT OF COOL BBS'S AND FROM DAY
TO DAY THIS NUMBER INCREASE, AND NOW WE HAVE ABOUT 20 BBS'S SUPPORTING THE
USR 14400HST.
HERE ALMOST ALL OF THE PEOPLE ARE ONLY ABLE TO RIP ROUTINES AND TO CHANGE
STARTUP-SEQUENCES AND ASCII TEXT.
WELL UP TO NOW I'VE TALKED ABOUT 'THE DARK SIDE OF ITALY',NOW I`LL TELL YOU
ABOUT THE GOOD ITALY.



WELL, THE GROUP THAT HAS TO BE MENTIONED FIRST IS `ITALIAN BAD BOYS`, A GROUP
ON THE SCENE SINCE THE BEGINNING, FORMED FROM COOL GUYZ WHO JUST WANT TO HAVE
FUN WITH THEIR COMPUTERS.
THEY HAVE A HELL OF CONTACTS, ABOUT 3-400, AND THEY CAN COUNT ON 2 OLDIES OF
THE AMIGA SCENE, E$G AND FRANZ, HAVING ABOUT 1-150 CONTACTS EACH.
THEY HAVE JUST RECEIVED FROM THE U.S.A. THE FAST MODEMS AND THEY HAVE STARTED
COOL MODEM-TRADING AND SOME BBS, THEY RUN A COOL DISK MAG CALLED `THE BAD
TANGUE`, WHICH WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO APPEAR, THEY MAKE COOL COMPACTS, TRAINERS
AND HAVE JUST STARTED A COOPERATION WITH `PIRANHAS`.
HERE WE HAVE ALSO GOT SOME DIVISIONS OF STRANGE FOREIGN CREWS.
PHAZE 101 ITALY CONSISTS OF 1 CODER CALLED PARANOID, WHO HAS RELEASED SOME
COOL DEMOS, UTILITIES, SOME TRAINERS, AND IS ALSO RELEASING A COOL DISK-MAG
CALLED 'ITALIAN FUNZINE' TOGETHER WITH SOME SMALL CREWS.
SAVAGE IS ALSO PRESENT IN ITALY WITH 2 GUYZ, A COOL CODER AND A COOL
TRAINER-MAKER AND CRACKER, THEY ARE NAMED: FILIPPETTO AND WIZ.
THEY RELEASE COOL COMPACTS, TRAINERS, DEMOS, SWAP BY MAIL, CRACK WHEN THEY GET 
THE OPPORTUNITY AND A COOL DISK MAG CALLED 'FREEDOM CRACK' WHICH IN THE FUTURE
WILL PROBABLY BE RUN IN COOPERATION WITH SUPPLEX.
A.O.F.C.F. ITALY HAS ABOUT 5 COOL MEMBERS WHO SWAP AND TRADE BY MODEM,
BUT LATELY THEY HAVE ALSO GOT A 14400HST BBS.
LATELY I`VE ALSO GOTTEN IN TOUCH WITH A MEMBER OF ABAKUS, A COOL GERMAN GUY

Pet Sematary
      BOOK REPORT:  PET SEMATARY


Let's  take a look at a really  cool  paperback  from  Stephen King  called:
PET SEMATARY. This is a book he wrote in 1983, and the movie is seen by lots
of people around the world.  But I prefer to read the book  anyway.  Stephen
King is one of the world most wellknown writer,  and this book is one of his
bestsellers. The book is about Louis Creed and his family  (his wife Rachel,
his daughter Ellie and his son Gage)  moving to a small town in Maine called
Ludlow. Behind their house is the "Pet Sematary", where children have buried
their pets since last century.  Louis' daughter has got a cat named  Church, 
and one day Louis' wife,  daughter and son is on vacation,  the cat gets run 
down in the highway outside their house by a truck.  Louis must do something 
before his daughter comes home  and gets crazy  because of her cat's  death. 
Louis and his neighbour Jud(an old man who has lived in Ludlow all his life)
decide to bury the cat in the  Pet Sematary,  but when they reach the place,
Jud just continue walking into the woods.  At last they reach an old  indian
burying-ground called the Micmac burying-ground.  Few people knows about it.
They bury the cat, and the next day the cat  returns.  It walks like a drunk
man and it moves slow. Scared,Louis asks Jud what had happened.Jud says that
everything buried up there comes back to life. Some of the animals buried up
there comes back evil, but fortunately Church didn't. He was just a bit slow
and he stinked like shit. Louis don't think about it anymore untill his son,
Gage also gets killed in the highway. The family can't  CONTINUE NEXT PAGE=>



stand the death of their son,  so  Louis  decides to bury his son  up in the
Micmac ground. One night, he digs up his son, and carries him all the way to
the burying-ground far in the scary woods of Maine.    He knows there may
be a chance that Gage returns evil,but he  also knows that these chances
are pretty small.  But there are chances.  Something Louis will feel the day
after when his son comes back with a scalpel and a horrible grin at his face
ready to kill everything that face him....
Let's stop here. You better read it yourself.  Stephen King really makes you
chill while reading this books.  That's one thing for sure,and the way it is
written makes you read on without stopping. Better get yourself a copy!!
You can buy it everywhere in all bookstores   and it's  NOT  expensive.
The book is also available in norwegian under the title of "De levende dode"
but I prefer the english version.  (The  translated norwegian version  is so
much shortened). You may order the book at this address:
Hodder & Stoughton Paperbacks, PoBox 11, Falmouth, Cornwall, England
Or write to me (Joker of Network) and I can get it for you. 
At last a note to all of you who read Miraculix/Alive's great article  about
Stephen King in Tech Times Issue 3:
The Stephen King newsletter are no more longer available.

Has Jesus Returned?
         HAS JESUS RETURNED??



What a question you think. You probably think I am one of these supermegagiga
christian guys going around and praying the  day in  and  out.  NOPE.  You're 
quite wrong.But I just wonder if the old stories about Jesus' return is true. 
Where do I get these thoughts??  I got them here in Oslo today and  yesterday
when I saw two guys who looked just the way  Jesus  looks at the  old  paint-
ings. But was it really him. One of them could have been him, but not both of
them I guess. The first one was coming out of  Oslo City  ( Norway's  biggest
shoppingcentre ) with a violin in his hand. His clothes were not the kind you
usually wear unless you are on a carnival. He had long hair and round glasses
on his nose, and of course he had beard. Just like Jesus. But  I  don't think
they had glasses 2000 years ago. But he may have bought them at Oslo City, or
he had maybe found them somewhere.  But Jesus didn't play violin.... so now I
am sure that guy couldn't be Jesus. But what about the other one I saw today?
That may have been Jesus.  He was traveling on a bike up the  main-street  in 
Oslo. He had a robe-like dress which looked like a curtain  or something like
that. It was blowing in the wind like clean sheets in the summerwind. But....
Could he have been Jesus?? He had the kind of face the other man  had  too; a
short beard and a Jesus-face (that's the kind you see on every Jesus-painting 
in churchs, etc.) Well. I thought Jesus were dead, so this is a bit scary, so
I don't know what to belive. Hm.. If  Jesus  had returned, it  would probably 
have been written in the papers. No. It couldn't been him..     JOKER/NETWORK

Test Yourself
            TEST YOURSELF!



Here's a short test that shows you what kind of computerfreak you really are.
Just answer the following questions with YES or NO.  
Give yourself one point for each YES and  two points for each NO 
Then add your numbers and look in the end of this article where you can read
about how you are. Here we go:

1: Are you afraid of the police?
2: Are you mad every time you get lots of old stuff from your contacts?
3: Would you mind boycotting T-Data and BJ-electronics?
4: Do you think your group is the best group?
5: Do you spend much time playing games on your Amiga?   
6: Is Xenon a new kind of a diskdrive?
7: Did you get your Amiga after April 1989?
8: Had you any problems to load this magazine?
9: Do you hate your school?
10: Do you like this article?

Well. That was simple, or what?? Hope you've got som points. Now, turn the
page and look at the results.                       






            CONTINUES====>



Here are the results:

Less than 10 Points:
--------------------
Just one thing to say: You'll fail the maths-exam (if you haven't already..)

10-13 points:
-------------
You are a beginner. Actually we can call you both loser and lamer just to
be extra kind. (But you don't know what that is??) Probably you think you are
big and one of the best, but you don't know much. Well. I do not think
the Amiga is something for you, so you better start with something else.
For example you can start collecting goldfish. That's pretty cool to sit
and watch. (I think you would understand more then, than you do if you watch
your monitor.)

14-16 points:
-------------
You are good. But there are something that haven't caught your mind yet.
You haven't been in the scene for a long time, and if you have, you think
you are very good. But you are not good enough. You are no lamer, but you're
not far from there. Try to work harder and consentrate more on what is going
on in the scene. Relax!! You need more info and knowledge to reach the top!! 
You are fighting to reach the top, but you are fighting in wrong ways. You 
better do what YOU want, and not what other want you to do.      CONTINUES==>




17-20 points
------------
Yeah. You know what the words "cool" and "good" means, and that's not
strange, coz that's what you are. You know you're good, but you don't go
around telling it to everybody. You're a relaxed person who knows what you
are doing and you are good at it. Well. Nothing special to say, except that
YOU have understood the point of everything. Be proud.

Editor's comment to this test!
------------------------------

I don't think you should take this test too seriously. I tested myself and got
20 points! As I said, you shouldn't take this test too seriously!
Anyway, thanx to Joker/Network for his nice articles!

Remember.... DON'T TAKE THIS TEST TOO SERIOUSLY!!!!

Coders Corner
CODERS CORNER

Hi fellas! To start with I wanna thank you guys out there who have written to me
with tips and tricks to this article! Special thanks to Elf of Vision Factory 
for the hint about the Kick 1.3 bug in the paperroutine! ('jmp $fc0cd8' instead
of 'rte'= a fucking lame bug) Also thanks to Panther of Active for the article 
about the Action Replay Cartrigde (try your boxes with future proggys! (hehe)).
In this issue I will reveal the secrets of 'Hidden Lines'. And, ofcourse, 
I have not forgotten the 3D-2D converter for those of you still struggling
with your vector routines. And if this wasn't enough, I have included some tips
at the end of these pages. Ok no more blacktalk... over to the hard facts...

(ps: these articles are dedicated to the crew of Monty Phyton!! Hill! Hill!!)

3D TO 2D CONVERSION

This is really easy! Take a very big number and divide it by Z then MULS it with
the X and Y coordinates! By varying the number you can adjust the perspective.
You may also just DIVS the X and Y with Z. Easy huh?



HIDDEN LINES

In order to achieve convex objects (Vectorobjects with hidden surfaces) we must
find a method to remove the surfaces which are covered completely by other sur-
faces. This method is populary called 'Hidden Lines'. If you consider eg. a
solid box you discover that you can only see max 3 surfaces at the time but on a
normal vector routine the box is transparent. The method to decide which
surfaces who are to disappear one must have good knowledge to vectormaths!
I have that (?? - ED) so I will in small steps explain how to do that, ending 
with a small little formula.

STEPS

All surfaces have a direction of which they point. This direction is called the
(yes.. you are right) direction vector, DV! The direction vector to the
viewpoint (the XY-plane) is the Ez vector: Ez=[0,0,1], which always makes an
angle of 90° with the XY-plane. (imagine that it points directly agains you).
By calculating the direction vector to the surfaces in the object and then
calculating the angle between the Ez vector and the surface direction vector S,
we know something about the placement of the surface vs the viewpoint. The
angle we use for this consideration is the CoSinus. If you mess around a bit
with the box and the imaginary XY-plane, you (should) discover that the surface
is viewing its inside when the angle between the Ez and S vectors is between 90°
and 270°! Accidentially the CoSinus to that degree range is always negative...
this will be useful to us later! In order to do these calculations we must have



a method to find the direction vector of the surfaces. A surface must at least
have 3 points A(x1,y1,z1), B(x2,y2,z2) and C(x3,y3,z3).
The AB vector is found this way:    AB=[x2-x1,y2-y1,z2-z1]=[X1,Y1,Z1]
and...



    AC=[x3-x1,y3-y1,z3-z1]=[X2,Y2,Z2]
By using a vectormethod called cross-multiplication we can find a vector that
stands 90° on all vectors in the surface; in other words the surface direction
vector! The formula goes like this: S=[AB × AC]... no place on this line...
S=[(Y1*Z2)-(Z1*Y2),(Z1*X2)-(X1*Z2),(X1*Y2)-(Y1*X2)]

Phew... we already know the viewpoint vector, Ez=[0,0,1]. Now we can find the
angle between the XY-plane and the surface:

Cos <(Ez,S)=Ez*S/|Ez|*|S|     (|x|=absolute value (no sign))

Since the divisor is always positive, we have only to study the sign of the
expression Ez*S! Remember the criteria of the surfacedisaperance? No?.. (jerk)
If yes, read on...if no then turn off your machine!... Ok, we found that the
surface should not be visible when the CoSinus of the surfaceangle was negative
that is when the Ez*S < 0!! Juhuuuu!! Voila! The formula is:

Ez*S=[0,0,1]*[(Y1*Z2)-(Z1*Y2),(Z1*X2)-(X1*Z2),(X1*Y2)-(Y1*X2)]
Ez*S=0*(Y1*Z2)-(Z1*Y2)+0*(Z1*X2)-(X1*Z2)+1*(X1*Y2)-(Y1*X2)
Ez*S=0+0+(X1*Y2)-(Y1*X2)
Ez*S=[(x2-x1)(y3-y1)-(y2-y1)(x3-x1)]




Surface disappears when: [(x2-x1)(y3-y1)-(y2-y1)(x3-x1)] < 0

Remember that you must calculate all the surfacedirectionvectors (phew) when
the object is in its basic position, so that the surface is to disappear when
the sign of the expression above is different from the original! (This is
because the direction vectors can point to either sides of the surfaces
depending on the choice of A, B and C! (somewhat complicated, hope you under-
stood! (if not read it again)).

Now I'm tired so please.... SOD OFF!

Next time: Filled Vectors, surface shading and clipping (filled clip too)!
As I promised, here are some tips for you out there:

*   Ever tried pressing the CTRL, Left Commodore and right amiga keys??
    Try it when having loaded in Deluxe Paint III and having used it a
    while!! Great fun!

*   Stop making demos letting the motor of the disk drive still run!
    It makes me pissed off! : motor off:    move.b #$fd,$bfd100

 How to stop the Action Replay
      Panther of Active

Hi there!! 
Am I the only one to dislike the usage of freezers when making trainers,
cracks etc etc? I guess not!! Still, I have an Action Replay at home.
Why, you ask?! Ofcourse because I wanna STOP it!! And I came to the 
conclusion that that was NO problem. Njema problema.
OK, here's how to do it:

* This check's if Action Replay is installed, if not, I don't try to kill it!!

move.l
#$10,a0
move.l
$6c(a0),d0
cmp.l
#$c5f00006,d0
beq.s
kill
rts

* Here's the nice part. I point the coolcapture-vector at my own program,
  and fix the checksum!



kill:
move.l
$4.w,a6
move.l
#zilch,$2e(a6)
lea
$22(a6),a0
clr.w
d0
moveq
#$17,d1
add:
add.w
(a0)+,d0
dbf 
d1,add
not.w
d0
move.w
d0,(a0)

* Just entering supervisor mode

lea
prog(pc),a0
move.l
a0,$80.w
trap
#0
rts

* Do I need to explain this?!

prog:
move.l
$fc0004,a0
jmp
-2(a0)



* Just as it looks, ZILCH!!

zilch:
rts

So, if an Action Replay IS installed, this is what the user will note:
The game or whatever will start loading, but will very soon reset!!
After the reset the Action Replay is out of action. So, this program
will let the user through!

That's all. Not very much, but VERY effective indeed!! So, I hope
all of you will use this little protection?! A little note to all of you
who have been thinking of purchasing an Action Replay: DON'T!!
It's to 99% worthless! Why?! Look here:

* The Action Replay is so easily stopped, that in a couple of months no
  games will be freezable!

* And even if freezing is possible, Action Replay uses some RAM, and there
  for often fucks up the program being freezed!!

* The monitor screen is slow, I mean REALLY slow, like in SEKA 1.5 (almost!).



So DON'T buy it!! Learn the real art of trainier making/cracking instead!!
That's all from me I guess!!! If you want to get in touch with me, a poor
little programmer, feel free to write to me:
KARL BROSTROM, KOPPARVAGEN 45 C, S-902 43 UMEA, SWEDEN!!
For any reasons!! Especially if you're into the bits'n bytes stuff!!!
OK, bye!!

Santa is here!




SelfInterview with

  Santa Claus   *=:-)##
-exclusively for Fourth Dimension

 Preface:
At last he opens his mouth, this old guru in Norwegian programming history.
Who is this wizard, this mysterious shadow whose works are almost invisible?
Where does he live?  How does he live?  Is he a human being?  Is he being human?
We have all asked ourselves these questions once or twice. (Just admit it!)
Now is the time for the revelation we have all waited for:  Santa SPEAKS!
To guide you all through the wood of words coming from Santa, we have been so
fortunate to get the No.1 interviewer available today: Santa!  (eh...what?)

How old are you, MySelf?
-I (You) am (are) approx 19,7068 years old (6.6.90)
Where do I usually live?
-Up the stairs, 180 deg. left, forward, 90 deg. left, in the door. (You know
 that!)
What is your present machinery?
-That is a VERY [diffi]cult question to answer, in fact, I do not really
 know myself... -Maybe you can help?



Well, among the things we can see around here, are: A500v1.2, Sanyo 14"CTV,
DM100 Printer, Kawai K1-II, Roland D-110, Selfmade Sampler, Selfmade (haha,
look at that mess!!!! hahahahaaaa..hhhrrmm!) 6 ch. Sep.Stereo Mixer, PowAmp
equipment (NAD, JBL, Denon). 
How can people reach us?
-Regular fans can write you a letter, and they often do.  I would however like
 to send a message to Mr.Dum.  Stein Dum;  Why did you only send a picture of
 your sister's face, I WANT THE WHOLE BODY! (follow this guideline, and you'll
 get a LOT of presents for Christmas! (I'll see to that!))
Tell me how it all started:
-Both you (I) and I (you) know very well how we got hooked, but OK, as I wish..
 To tell me how, I have to go six years back in time.  Once in 1984 I saw
 an ad on the cover of "Fantomet".  The ad showed Guran and Fantomet gaming
 on a neat games console.  I was immediately caught by the thought of having
 a games machine.  Some months later, you were on an exhibition, where they had
 just that console.   Well, you ended up buying a '64 on that same exhibition,
 cause the games console was [a: too expensive, b:too cheap, c:too enter-
 taining, or d:somewhat too little challenging for a mind like mine.]




*****User interrupt $C312F2, poem section:
   Det er høst, det blåser.                  (It's harwest, it's blowing.)
   Eller er det vår,                         (Or is it ours,)
   det driter jeg i.                         (I shit to that.)
   Lemmen som stod der,                      (The thing that was erected dear)
   var stor og glad.                         (was big and horny.)

   ellers smeller det høyt.                  (Or it smells high.)
*****User interrupt interrupted. Session closed. ****

What did you do with the '64?
-I used it as (Idiot! (.....eh...No, sorry, I take it back...)) a gaming
 machine at first, but then you started to 'unprotect' Interceptor's
 SpriteMan (remember?).  The Christmas present (which my father handed me
 while he was wearing a Santa-suit (Sure, he didn't fool me, oh no!))
 was HesMon.  Well, that was my enTRANCE to the world of bits, bytes, sprites,
 pokes, peeks, borders, etc. (In (an)other word(s): Programming)
-I must say, in this time of seriousness, that some of the very best playable
 games were made on the '64.
What about the Amiga, then?
-What do I mean; "What about the Amiga then?"
What do I mean?
-You mean what do you mean.



What?
-Yes.
What about the Amiga, then?
-The Amiga is a dangerously interesting machine.  I mean, if you (I? (no,
 the reader (Oh! You mean I can't read (OFCOURSE NOT (I knew it, I KNEW it..
 (If I wanna sit there whimpering, OK! (Buzz off! (THE SAME TO U!))))))))
 loose control, (and that's no problem!) you're is stuck in the world of
 logic, digits, bits'n'bytes.
What about the Amiga, then?
-You did a big demo three years ago, called "The Drolt Demo".  A Drolt is
 something we all have been.  A Drolt is a word that is used in  BERGEN, NORWAY
 (-47-5-) to characterize a small kid that want to be with the big guys and do
 what they do.  (In other words, a lamer! @$#%^#*)
What about the Amiga, then?
-SHIT! HOW MUCH SHIT DO I HAVE TO LISTEN TO???   CALL THE POLICE!
Let me rephrase the question:
Then what, Amiga about the?
-Yes, you and I (I, we) agree on that point, that's fer sure!
Why do you sit on all this music equipment?
-How stupid can a person become? TO MAKE MUSIC!  NeXT question, please!
OK. (?)
-Well, I (you) know the answer to that: (Sin(v)*Y+Cos(v)*X)*San(24)
Right! (?!?!!) Well, thank me for letting you interview you, it sure wasn't
easy, but we made it somehow!




-Before we go, I MUST send another message to the people:
 Due to an extreme cut in the 1990 ChristmasPresent Budget on the North Pole,
 I must ask each and everyone to contribute with a Christmas present.  I've
 already received a homemade bomb from FMI, and a few terrorists from the
 Police.  Remember, it doesn't have to be big or glittering, it's the THOUGHT
 that counts.  Thank you!

**LATEST:Santa's journalists are on strike.  That means this years christmas-
         presents may not have names on the stickers.  Santa regrets this, but
         as there is nothing he can do about it, it seems impossible to aviod
         a mass confusion on 24th of December.

We in FOURTH DIMENSION are very sorry for this rather weird interview. We 
apologise to all of you having lost all faith in Santa Claus on behalf of this
interview! We think, however, that the truth should come out once and for all!

So, all you lamers out there...... Santa is for real but there's no use in 
                                   waiting for any presents.....

- Kefrens are, in my opinion, the best
demogroup in Denmark! They've also got
some of the best coders  on  Amiga.  I
think Metallion  and  the  rest of the
group  should  continue  making demos! 
How we would miss them if they stopped
producing these great demos!!!!
