This section covers some of the important stuff that has happened since our last issue. If you have not seen the July or September issues yet, it may be worth your while to check them out.
There have been a few new developments in the Ambrosia office these past new months. We all enjoyed our summer, but we also got a lot of work done too.
Apeiron as a project has fallen a little behind schedule. Never fear, Andrew is hard at work on it:
Apeiron is Ambrosia's latest arcade action game. Originally scheduled for an late August early September launch, things have fallen behind schedule. Hey, with A-10 and Marathon delaying release it has become actually fashionable to whip your fans into an expectant frenzy. Don't worry, we'll come through. We would rather wait a bit and make sure everything is just right.
Snapz , Ambrosia's latest utility program, is a big hit. Initial registrations indicate a successful well received program. That write-up in MacWeek helped too. Good, we can pour the extra cash right into Apeiron. If you have not heard of Snapz, download it and take it for a spin yourself.
GEnie is the latest online service to offer Ambrosia an operating base. Ambrosia's support area is in the Macintosh Product Support Round Table, located on page 606. To get there, while signed on and in terminal mode, type M606 at any GEnie prompt. Our message base can be found by choosing option 1 from the page 606 menu. This will take you to the message boards. The Ambrosia Section can be found by typing SET 4. Our software library can be found by choosing option 3 from the page 606 menu. This will take you to the software libraries. Then choose option 8 to set the software library to Ambrosia's library, which is library 14. Ambrosia's conference went live September 30th. We are very grateful for GEnie to offer us this opportunity to better serve the Macintosh community.
Pix. Since The Ambrosia Times has been so well received, we decided to spend a little dough on it. Ambrosia now has a roving Shenobi-Cam, so named because it shows up when you least want it to (actually, an Apple QuickTake 100). We thought you would enjoy us replacing some of the click art with digital photographs. Please be aware that Ambrosia is a registered owner/user of Adobe PhotoShop , so do not believe everything you see (you didn't think we would actually gut a cat, did you?).
