- THE PRIZE FOR NEXT MONTH -

    The Amiga Report contest is still going on, and it is not too
late to enter. This ongoing monthly contest allows Amiga Report
readers a chance to win software by either solving a puzzle or by
entering a random drawing.

    The prize this month is the Amiga/Toaster Reference Manual v2.221,
from Area52. This is a 1,000 page help system for the Amiga and Video
Toaster, covering the Workbench, AmigaDOS, Lightwave, and more ($34.95).
    The second prize choice is Merrill Callaway's AmigaGuide based
ARexx Reference Manual. This is from the author of the ARexx Cookbook,
and a journalist for Amazing Computing magazine ($24.95).
    Also, as a third prize, we are offering the FutureShock audio
CDROM,  which was produced using Amiga computers by SideWinder ($12.95).

    All monthly contests end on the morning of the first of the
following month. Any entries beyond this date will be entered into the
next contest.


- THE MONTHLY DRAWING -

    To enter the random drawing, select a number from 1 to 262,144
and send it to me at one of my addresses listed below, either by
the postal service or email through the Internet.
    Also, you may enter by solving the following puzzle. The winner
of this puzzle will be decided within the same time frame as the
random prize, to allow the contest information to filter through the
networks, and to allow your letters and postcards to come in.


- THE PUZZLE -

    Since people complained that the first contest was too hard, and
that the second was too easy, I made one that anyone can solve with
a little thought. Once you get some of it decoded you will be able
to solve it with ease ::heh heh::!

        Decrypt the following encoded message: 17851 47932

        Each location in the code represents one character in the
    ASCII character set from A to Z. Also provide your method of
    obtaining the answer.


- TO ENTER -

    To enter, simply let your fingers do the talking and type up an
email and send it to dtiberio@libserv1.ic.sunysb.edu, or send a post
card or letter to:

        Amiga Report Contest
        c/o David Tiberio
        6 Lodge Lane
        East Setauket, NY 11733

    In your letter or email, please provide the following:

    Your full name and address. Please keep in mind that many of
you may have addresses that I am not accustomed to, so please include
your country or any other information that I would need in case you
win. An email address should also be included, if possible.

    You must also include a one sentence or "short answer" explanation
of the editorial content from the editor, Rob Niles, or any stand-in
editor, in the issue in which you read about this contest. You must
also include the issue number. For example, if you read this in
AR213, then include that in your correspondance. Also, a prize winner
will be determined by a random number generator. Choose a number from
1 to 262,144. The closest winner or winners to the randomly generated
number will receive the prize in the mail. Anyone who does not provide
a number will have one assigned to him randomly.
