  unlike in the last 23 issues, we
  decided not only to list up the facts
  about recent events, but we will
  also inform you about the gossip that
  comes along with the news, hoping to
  make it yet more interesting for you.

  the danger of printing incorrect
  news is the higher of course, but
  the reader has to make up his own
  mind anyway, when it comes to believe
  we did never, and we will never write
  news in an incorrect way on purpose

  the striking news of the month;

  quite a bit different, there are no
  englishmen in the group anymore:

  kicked out. shortly before gene and
  rebel left dominators. internal
  affairs were the reason for this.
  3dk quit the c64 scene, now being in
  dom amiga. jack daniels did put out
  another issue of corruption on his
  own. also macro nit was kicked out.
  after dropping disintegration, the
  new hq is tunnel of wares XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  this: tricket, cosmo, dogfriend,
