scenery amiga version 1.39 (june 2002)
Not much to say this time... Here's a new edition of scenery, at last. A few
things are different, but most of it remains the same. We now have some
reviews from Zito (previously published as part of DemoRide) incorporated
into the text, thanks to him for that. The bullet points are forever gone,
replaced with a (imho) better system. But the crust of scenery remains the
same, of course. This edition contains a lot of small fixes too, hopefully
strengthening the text here and there. There's just more to love ;)
Once again, there are lots of submitted material that I have just not had
the time to insert yet. If you are one of those that sent me info, that is
not yet a part of the text, then I can only seek to apologise. I still have
all your material here, it's all just down to a lack of time. My todo folder
is, still, enormous.
A few people might have noticed that I took a handle since last time. I kept
getting confused with Glenn Rune Gallefoss/Shape at #c-64, and upon checking
I found YET ANOTHER scener using the handle of 'glenn'. Slummy/Spaceballs
suggested 'Menace' as part of a long-running gag (see Spaceballs' "The Last
Finger" for a credits entry for Glenn the Menace), and so it became. It's
still me, just under a catchier name ;)
I'm leaving for a vacation now, but I will return with a new edition once I
get back. And, who knows, there might just be a surprise or two next time

... how to read scenery amiga .............................................
[ Top ]
THIS section will hopefully answer any question you may have about how to
read Scenery. It explains the various shortcodes used in the entries, and
the system we use to organize the information. Below is what any entry in
the main part of Scenery might look like:
Cool Group (CLG, http://www.coolgroup.org, 199x-199x)
NOR> Cool Norwegian (code), Cool Painter (gfx), Cool Musician (music).
HOL> Cool Gfxian (gfx, ex Cool Graphics Team, new 02/97).
???> The Guy From Another Place (code gfx music ascii sysop 'BBS').
Here is where you'll find the group's history and any other significant
information. If it's a group that's been around, with some tradition, expect
me to go on endlessly and get terribly nostalgic :D
199x - This is a summary of the year's events for the group.

review: Seeing as this is just a dummy example and not a real review, I
won't bother with writing anything remotely comprehensible here. So hrjs!
