  * Date: 01-Nov-93                                                   *
  * From: Jim Maciorowski, Safe Hex International/Florida             *
  *       Michael Arends, Safe Hex International/Washington           *
  *                                                                   *
  *                                                                   *
  * Today we are formally announcing our "retirement" from the Safe   *
  * Hex International organization.                                   *
  *                                                                   *
  * It has come to our attention that the work involved in running a  *
  * "Regional Virus Center" has become increasingly overwhelming.     *
  * Due to certain Differences of opinion we Have with the MAIN SHI   *
  * center, We are stepping down as coordinators. Perhaps SHI will be *
  * looking for new "Regional Virus Center" coordinators but nothing  *
  * has been said at this time.                                       *
  *                                                                   *
  * We understand that this will come as a shock to some. To others   *
  * it will be no surprise.  To even more (unfortunately) you will    *
  * have absolutely no idea who we are or the work we did.  To give   *
  * a brief summary:                                                  *
  *                                                                   *
  * · We translated the information sent to us from SHI Headquarters  *
  *   in Denmark into a more readable format for those in the USA.    *
  *                                                                   *
  * · We collected new viruses for the purposes of updating the anti- *
  *   viral programs you may use (VirusZ, Virus Checker, etc).        *
  *                                                                   *
  * · We distributed SHI's anti-viral disk, THE NEW SUPERKILLERS      *
  *   (two versions) as well as other disks.  We even offered         *
  *   subscriptions to SUPERKILLERS so that people can have the best  *
  *   updated killers mailed to them every month.                     *
  *                                                                   *
  * · We encouraged people to make donations to the anti-virus        *
  *   programmers who spend literally thousands of hours updating     *
  *   their programs and who ask for little or nothing in return.     *
  *                                                                   *
  * · We helped people with their virus problems.                     *
  *                                                                   *
  * · And we did it all NOT FOR PROFIT.                               *
  *                                                                   *
  * While we have had some disappointments with the general reaction  *
  * of computer users towards our work, we have for the most part     *
  * been happy to serve an organization whose fight against computer  *
  * viruses was unique in the Amiga community.  But now we feel it is *
  * time to move on to other projects.                                *
  *                                                                   *
  * Any user who subscribed to THE NEW SUPERKILLERS from Michael or   *
  * Jim will continue to have their subscriptions honored until they  *
  * expire.  However, no new subscriptions will be accepted.          *
  * We will try to release updates more frequently than they have     *
  * been in the past and will continue to provide all users with the  *
  * same rapid service as before.                                     *
  *                                                                   *
  * Sincerely,                                                        *
  *              Jim Maciorowski and Michael Arends                   *
  *                                                                   *
