WELCOME TO THE
OFFICIAL LAMENTATION PAGES
These ST NEWS pages were last updated January 1st 2013
ST NEWS was an Atari ST/TT/Falcon multimedia disk magazine, edited by Stefan Posthuma and Richard Karsmakers, that thrived from the summer of 1986 to the summer of 1996. During that time, a variety of things happened to both the magazine and the 'scene' it was part of, quite a few of which are chronicled on this site.
This site has pretty much been cast in concrete since 2006 or 2007, and as ST NEWS no longer exists as such, it will remain so. So this is more of an archive site than anything else. Added a Facebook "Like" thing, removed the guestbook which went defunct, and now it will just remain as it is until the end of days.
