/// From the Editor's Desk                        "Saying it like it is!"
    ----------------------


Another summer has come and gone.  Temperatures are falling.  The weather
here in Omaha has been great for the past few weeks -- in the 60s and 70s,
with an occaisonal jaunt into the 80s.  With the arrival of Fall comes the
general increase in online activity, since the cooler weather is moving
people back indoors.  The major online services will really be jumping here
soon, and more exciting things should happen in the Amiga community.

On the down side, there are rumors that Jim Dionne, President of Commodore,
has resigned.  Calls to Commodore attempting to verify this rumor have been
met with "no comment."  Hopefully, the facts will make themselves known in
the near future.

But on a more positive note, the CD32 will hopefully make its limited debut
in the US sometime next month.  I'm anxious to see one of these little
jewels.  I'm also eagerly awaiting the CD32-compatible CD-ROM drive that
Commodore has announced for the Amiga 1200 and 4000.  The CD32, if
successful, should help bring Commodore back into the realm of viable
alternatives to the DOS platform.  And it'll be a source of some good
games too!
