Well, the November/December issue is here. This issue has

articles on: an great new Soundblaster music program called

Trak-Blaster, Sierra's "Life in the Fast Lane with the Jones",

Steve Meretzky's Spellcasting 101, Joke of the Month, "Ask the

Dr.", The Amiga Video Toaster, and more.

GIF News now available via Internet. Pretty soon, you can

subscribe via E-mail to have GIF News delivered right to you.

However, first someone has to explain how to encode files to

be transmitted over the net. Right now though, GIF News can

be obtained through various anonymous FTP sites around the

world. Try and - look

in the /pub directory on wuarchive and the /pub/incoming on

sequent. You can always recognize which GIF News issue is up

by the filename. For example:

| |_ |

| ||__

GIF | |

News | November



GIF News comes out every other month so look for

in January. If you want back issues, let me know or send me a

Self-Addressed-Stamped-Envelope with a disk (please include some

.GIF files or anything else you might think is interesting on that

disk).,, should be up on last time I checked. They're also up on the

Channel 1 BBS in Cambridge, MA (617)354-8873.
