Our guest speaker will be Chuck Steinman of DataQue, makers of the TURBO-816 Atari 8-Bit enhancement. The DataQue Conference is going to be held in CompuServe's Electronic Convention Center(tm). The Electronic Convention Center(tm) was designed specifically for special conferences of this nature and can have as many as 300 people participating simultaneously without causing the slightest speed decrease. In addition, the Electronic Convention Center(tm) offers the capability of holding a more structured conference, making it possible for you to ask your questions and be answered by Chuck Steinman without any interruptions. Top performance is absolutely guaranteed! Lastly, the Electronic Convention Center(tm) offers additional conveniences (discussed later in this text) that will make your participation in this conference amazingly easy. If you've participated in other national conferences of this type before and have been underwhelmed at the way it was conducted and the performance of the service during 'heavy' usage, this conference is your opportunity to experience the communication power of a professional-quality global information network. ACCESSING THE CONVENTION CENTER As mentioned above, the DataQue conference will be held in CompuServe's Electronic Convention Center(tm) -- NOT the conference area of this Atari Forum. To access the Convention Center, type GO CONVENTION at any CompuServe command prompt. When you type GO CONVENTION, CompuServe will display the following menu: Electronic Convention Center(tm) INFORMATION/RESERVATIONS 1 Instructions 2 List Conferences/Make Reservations 3 Review/Cancel Reservations 4 Conference Etiquette Enter choice ! Choice 1 allows you to view the complete instruction guide for using the Convention Center. Choice 2 and Choice 3 allow you to list upcoming special conferences and any advance "reservations" (NOT NECESSARY FOR THIS CONFERENCE!) you might have made. Lastly, choice 4 provides some information on the etiquette followed by participants in an electronic conference. On Wednesday, February 15th at 7:30 (a half hour before the DataQue conference is scheduled to begin), the Convention Center menu will appear as shown above with the addition of menu choice 5 which will allow you to enter the DataQue conference. An example of how the Convention Center menu will appear from 7:30 through the end of the conference on February 15th appears below: Electronic Convention Center(tm) INFORMATION/RESERVATIONS 1 Instructions 2 List Conferences/Make Reservations 3 Review/Cancel Reservations 4 Conference Etiquette JOIN CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS 5 ATARI 8-bit/TURBO-816 Enter choice !

I recently purchased a copy of Turboword from MicroMiser Software Incorporated, the same company that sells Turbobase, as advertised in Analog, Antic and Atari Explorer magazines. As this is the only word processing program presently available to work with the XEP80 eighty column adaptor, I was very pleased to discover that it was available (Atari Corporation has yet to ship AtariWriter-80). Nevertheless, I was very displeased at the quality of the product once I received it in the mail. The following is the exact text of the letter I wrote to MicroMiser describing what I beleived were the major problems with their program. Included after that is their response to my letter which, although rather amusing at first, is the most insulting drivel I have ever read. Hence, I thought you should be aware of this company's practices in case you were considering purchasing one of their products. --------------------------------------------------------------------- January 6, 1989 Micromiser Software 1635-A Holden Ave., Orlando, Florida 32809, USA To whom it may concern: I received my copy of Turboword two days ago and have spent a number of hours familiarising myself with its various functions. I am sorry to say that I am genuinely unimpressed with this product. To begin with, its most serious lack is that it is impossible to adjust line spacing either from the main menu or within the editor. Surely you must realize that any student using a word processor requires double spacing. I am presently in my tenth year of university, and every paper that I have ever written was required to be double spaced; some even required changing the spacing within the body of the text (eg., single spacing for passages quoted directly from a published text). Hence, this program is completely useless for most students, including myself. Next on my list of complaints is the fact that the program is replete with a number of uncorrected bugs. For example, when using the "Enter Address" function of the main menu I always get an "error 168 at line 255" message while the program is saving my address. Then when I use the "G" function my address is poorly centered on the screen and requires adjustment of the spacing so that it looks acceptable. I have yet to try the envelope functions, but I cringe at the thought of the insect-like creatures that await me. The file functions of the program are also totally inadequate. It is impossible to save a file under another name than the one with which it was loaded. As a result, the user cannot make changes to a file and still have the original on disk unaltered. This is a serious limitation if you like to revise your work a number of times without destroying the last version you worked on. Another problem with the program is the fact that the main menu is written in BASIC. When memory is at a premium, as it is in the Atari 8-bits, having BASIC in RAM takes up a large chunk of it that can be put to better use for much needed program functions and more text. The spelling ckecker also does not function properly. It states in the manual that it is supposed to copy the "SPELLCHK.TXT" file to the original file after a spelling check. It does not do so. Needless to say, this is very annoying and defeats the purpose of the spelling checker. Finally, the method of entering printer codes into the file is non- intuitive. Control-letter sequences to end and begin a section (of underlining for example) would be much more natural than using the inverse characters. Furthermore, I personally believe that having the control sequence insert a space is counterproductive to good word processing. If, for example, I wished to underline only part of a word this is impossible unless I redefine the printer codes and use some weird punctuation sequence that I would never remember. The high price of $49.00 (US) that I paid for it is criminal considering the poor quality of the product. I also find your request for another $5.00 for your "trip to the post office" to be outrageous and I categorically refuse to pay it. Where I come from, it is illegal to charge someone extra for something unless the charge is clearly stated in advance. In your advertisements there is no mention of postage and handling charges whatsoever, hence I find it highly objectionable that you sent me an invoice for an extra $5.00; especially since the postage only cost YOU $1.20! On the envelope you wrote the value of the contents to be $10.00. Personally, I cannot say that this program is worth one cent more than that. Neverthelless, if you are able to send me a version with all the aforementioned bugs corrected (especially the double spacing) then I will consider paying you the amount you requested. Sincerely yours, K. Gilbert --------------------------------------------------------------------- Star Date 125.4729 K. Gilbert Montreal, Quebec Canada Earth Attention Kay, We respond to your recent transmission. The program TURBOWORD was designed for Earth-use only. It is not recommended for inhabitants of the outer planets. Regarding the disputed five credits, do not REPEAT do not initiate second request. Our advice is to return to Neptune immediately where it is unlikely you will be found. In fact, we doubt anyone would look. Concerning the update to the above mentioned product which includes the features you seek, we wish you all the luck in the universe. Perhaps you can contact a pirate on Triton appropriate to your genre to assist in locating same. Please do not approach the council again on this matter. The elders are busy with constructive enterprise and will disavow any further contact. The Galactic Council to assist in locating same. [EOF] RESPONSE FOLLOWS Dear Tim, About the letter TURBOW.TXT. He sent us a check for the price of the program and we sent it and billed the shipping to save him another 20 days. Some thanks. We're criminal for charging shipping to a foreign country because we didn't advertise same in the US? Glad he's not from China! In Canada they'd throw us in jail for that? We never advertised double spacing but we're supposed to rewrite the program to collect the $5 he owes us. We're guilty of writing in BASIC, never mind the 12K of ASSEMBLER that took four months. Our printer codes may be "non-intuitive" to a ten year university student, but they're "intuitive" enough to the rest of us high-school drop-outs. Our high price of $49 is criminal. Never mind there are only 500 potential customers with XEP80s according to our distributor. Sorry for wanting more than $2/hr. We wrote $10 on the package to save him some duty (why we have to go to the post office). Some thanks. We're about to send 200 FREE update disks with Turboword+ which corrects all problems and doubles features. Who else does this? I just had to buy GFA 3.0 to fix the bugs in 2.0. But we're not sending any to Neptune as long as I run this company. Also, about half of his problems were HIS problems, not ours. The reason this is the only negative thing you've heard is most likely because there are few aliens using our software, and because we offer the best support in the Atari world--when people ask for it in any normal way. All it takes is to realize that there are other human beings at the end of the letter or phone who have feelings too. I'm sure we'd get along fine, as I do with 99.9% of customers. I just finished Turboword+ and I'm very proud of it, though it probably doesn't have "All features of Paperclip" as one customer requested on his warranty. I think you would be very happy with it. Now I start on a compatible file manager which I'm sure will be done by the time AW+ comes out. Nice to make your aquaintance! It's rare that we developers get the opportunity to tell our side. Thanks for giving me the opportunity, and thanks to our alien friend for forcing it. By the way he is no reflection on Canadians--they are generally very knowledgeable, have good manners, and pay the $5 shipping without a hassle. Steve at Micromiser P.S. One time a programmer called and swore at me for not writing Turbobase in color! Gee, Dbase on an Atari8 ain't good enough?!? Well this is sure an interesting business. (I love it!) I'll write a book some day! S.B. ############################## <*> NINTENDO SUES ATARI Ctsy CompuServe ATARIARTS SIG #: 5680 S8/Hot Topics 03-Feb-89 14:35:58 Sb: #Nintendo Sues Atari... Fm: SYSOP*Mike Schoenbach 76703,4363 To: All Online Today OLT-255 NINTENDO SUES ATARI GAMES, TENGEN (Feb. 3) Continuing the video game feud, Nintendo of America now has sued Atari Games Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tengen Inc., alleging patent infringement. This follows a $250 million lawsuit filed earlier this week against Nintendo Co. Ltd. by Atari Corp. (which is not related to Atari Games). That action accused the Japanese video giant of monopolizing the market with restrictions on its licensed game developers. As noted earlier, all these parties have been in federal court earlier. In December, Atari Games filed a $100 million suit against Nintendo, alleging unfair competition. Then last month Nintendo sued Atari Games, saying the firm was making and selling unauthorized video-game cartridges. Of this latest suit, Nintendo said Atari Games and Tengen's making and selling home video cartridges for play on the Nintendo Entertainment System infringes on a US Patent No. 4,799,635. That patent "covers a novel system designed to prevent the use of unauthorized computer software on hardware systems," Nintendo said in a statement. Nintendo said its system places separate "security chips" in both computer hardware and external memory software. These dedicated processors run authenticating programs and compare results. "If the results agree, the software is 'authorized' and the game begins," the statement said. "The Tengen-manufactured cartridges employ this system and thereby infringe Nintendo's patent." The action late yesterday was filed in US District Court in San Francisco as an amended complaint to the January suit. --Charles Bowen ############################## <*> ATARI MAGAZINES by Lawrence Estep (Editor Note: This article covers the availability of back-issues of Atari related publications.)

BBS The official BBS system of The Atari Exchange of Louisville,KY (502) 456-4292 SysOp:Rich Link ############################## <*> CALL BLOCKING (A REPORT) Reprinted by permission of the author. by Jerry Cross I'm going to do something I have never done before, write a serious article (gasp!). No jokes this time, because this is a serious issue and you should be very concerned with it. In the October issue of MAM you read about how a certain long distance telephone carrier in Iowa was practicing what is called call blocking. In review, this means this company, Teleconnect, Inc., is blocking calls made through their long distance system to other callers, without notifying either the person making the call or the person whose number is being blocked. As a employee of Michigan Bell, I was especially concerned with this practice. This practice is an obvious violation of your rights, and long distance companies have no right to tamper with telephone calls. Even though this practice appears to be limited to only calls made to certain bulletin board systems, what is stopping them from blocking calls to whoever they wish? Would you, as an honest business man, appreciate AT&T blocking calls to your lines because some dishonest person or phone hacker made some illegal calls to you? It could easily cost you a lot of business! Well, after I first read the article, sent to me by another concerned computer user, I felt I needed to do something. By an incredible coincidence, this same company (Teleconnect, Inc.) was just now setting up shop in the Michigan area, but was limiting their business only to business customers and was ignoring residence customers. Thus begins my quest! I immediately went to "The Mike Wallace 60 Minute School of Journalism," which I finished in only 48 minutes. (Sorry, I promised no jokes.) I learned the three steps of good investigative reporting. Gather evidence, interview witnesses and then pounce on the victim. So, after talking to some witnesses in Iowa, I discovered that one of Teleconnect's main defenses was that local phone companies would not work with them to identify the phone hackers. Well, this sounded strange to me, so I called both the Michigan Bell Staff Security people, plus a few co-workers I used to work with. MBT has a special office located in Southfield headed by Daryl Miller, a staff manager. MBT will supply the long distance carriers with information about calls made to certain numbers. Also, if necessary, MBT will help establish an entire case for the carrier against the suspect and even testify in court. So much for Teleconnect's excuses. My next call went to AT&T. Since they have long had an established long distance network to every central telephone office, toll fraud was not a major problem. However, there are still those who will attempt to discover someone's credit calling card number by using their computer to constantly dial codes until one is discovered. Both MBT and AT&T are ready and waiting for them, with the use of their own monitoring computers that can quickly discover when a series of incorrect credit cards are entered, and can locate the hacker within minutes. So, once again there is no need for AT&T to resort to call blocking. I wonder why Teleconnect does not have some sort of similar system set up to at least tell if someone is trying to discover an illegal credit number? I guess it's just cheaper to block calls, huh? My calls to both MCI and Sprint went unanswered, and calls to other carriers were usually transferred to other supervisors with the usual replies of "We don't discuss security matters" or "You will have to contact our Media Relations department," which was usually followed by "What magazine did you say you write for?" Next, thanks to a tip from another AT&T friend, I got in contact with the Telecommunications Fraud Association. This is, I think, a lobbying group located in Washington, District of Columbia, that is sponsored by the long distance carriers, and helps to advise legistrators on Telecommunications Fraud laws. Once again, though, I lacked the backing of a big-time magazine to get any type of reply. I even had to send them a sample of our magazine to prove it was for real! I could see it was time to start enlisting help. I started calling the Michigan Public Service Commission, which is responsible for regulating the phone industry in Michigan. What a joke! After sending a few letters and making some phone calls, I didn't get anywhere with them. Time to bring out some bigger guns. I sent a letter to both Representative Kildie and Senator Riegle. Mr. Kildie sent me a nice rm letter thanking me for bring this important matter to his attention and promised he would shuffle it off to some underling. Things were looking bad now. But then I got a CALL from Mr. Riegle's office. After going over the whole thing again with one of their staff members, I was told they would look into it. About 2 weeks later, I got a letter saying that a complaint had been issued in my name with the Interstate Commerce Commission. Although this does show a little progress, I don't expect any quick answers from them either. OK, so now I was ready to confront Teleconnect. Armed with all sorts of conflicting testimony, I got hold of their media relations person and screamed "SO ARE YOU GUYS BLOCKING CALLS IN MICHIGAN, OR WHAT!?!" "No, we aren't" she said. Oops! I forgot lesson #1! I needed evidence. Darn, I don't have any. Now what do I do? That's where you readers come in. If you are using one of the long distance carriers, and for some reason can not get through to your number, first try using another long distance company such as AT&T. If you do get through, then you may have discovered a blocked call! If so, let me know! I will investigate it further and turn over this information to Mr. Riegle's office. I am also tracking down some other sources of help, but don't expect any more information for a while. But unless I can prove call blocking is indeed going on in Michigan, there is not much we can do through legal channels. So please let me know if you discover any blocked lines.

Or even 2 different computers?!! Say, I want to use TSCOPE to view On-Line Graphics, but want to use DeTerm to do my DOWnloading and messaging? Or wanna use both my ST and XE?? Answer: No problem. CIS can easily handle multiple 'parameter sets' for the same PPN (User ID number) This info is summarized from the Ubiquitous Charles Bowen's column in ONLINE TODAY (March issue). At least till it scrolls off, you can read the complete article by GO OLT-3500. (recommended!) The key is a trip into the PRO (PROgramming) area of CIS. When you type a PRO command (you can do so at any ! prompt. The polite way is to do this OUTSIDE of a forum.) you enter the Personal Programming area. It CAN look intimidating, 'cause all you see is an enigmatic 'OK' on the screen. (Shades of Moose-DOS) DON'T PANIC! If you know which commands to type, you can do amazing things in PRO... SAVE THE ALTERNATE Of course, you've already set your 'default' parameters, right? What you need to do is 'Save' an Alternate Set for access when you need it. To start, you need to connect using your 'alternate' program (or computer!) Connected? Type GO TERMINAL, and use the menu to change things as required. eg. if you normally use EXPRESS, but want to set up TSCOPE parameters, you'd boot up with TSCOPE, then change your terminal Type to VIDTEX. Or, maybe you use an XE at home but a PC at the office. In that case, you might want an alternate WIDTH of 80. When you've got things the way you want them in your Alternate Set, exit TERMINAL, and specify you want these settings set for THIS SESSION only, by hitting S. Now, type PRO. At the OK prompt type: TER DEF SECOND For 'SECOND' use whatever name (6 characters max) you want for the Alternate Set. USING THE ALTERNATE If you've followed the above, what you now have is <2> full 'terminal parameter' files stored on CIS. One is the Default, one is an Alternate. Logging on with the default, of course, is no problem. But how about if we want to use the Alternate? Easy... When you dial CIS and get the 'User ID:' prompt, type in your PPN (number), followed IMMEDIATELY by an asterisk and the name of your Alternate Set like so: User ID: 70717,720*SECOND replacing 'SECOND' with whatever name you chose previously. Have a 'space out' and forget the asterisk? You can EVEN change parameters after you've logged on! In this case, go to PRO and type TER IS SECOND (or whatever 'alternate' name you used.) ############################## <*> NEW FILES ON GENIE ATARI8 Ctsy GEnie, Edited by R.Kovacs The following list, edited down from the original GEnie directory, contains all the NEW files uploaded to the Atari8 RT during January.
