"And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true..."

Greetings, and welcome to the December 1996 issue of The Amiga Monitor. We had some scheduling difficulties this month, and as a result, this issue is out a little later than we had hoped, and we were not able to include the "Amiga Benchmark Comparison" feature this month. My apologies for any inconvenience that causes.
On the other hand, we have been busily at work improving the magazine itself. Check out the "Mirror Sites" page (referenced above) to see several new additions. Music and MIDI Editor Fred Ericksen's monthly article is now an actual column (department), and there's a contest to come up with a name for it (see his column...and no, we don't have a new A4000 for the winner, Fred :)). Executive Editor Anthony Becker now has an established monthly column known as "The Tone Byte" full of short descriptions of various Amiga happenings and software here and there. And we'd like to welcome a new member to the staff: Bill Graham, a noted Amiga graphics artist, has joined us as Graphics Editor. His first article is very informative, and I look forward to him working with us in the future.
And on the Amiga front...
A number of things have happened in the Amiga community in the last month. Rather than explain them all here, I would refer you to the News and Editorial section below. However, I can say that no, nobody has bought the Amiga yet...and thus the delay continues. One can only hope that the situation will be brought to a successful resolution, and soon. Too bad the Amiga is going to miss yet another holiday season...
On that note, I wish you all Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year; and with that, we begin Volume 1 Issue 5 of The Amiga Monitor. And maybe...just maybe...something may finally have happened when we "meet" again, same time and same place, a month or so from now.
Only time will tell.
