Well, Dark Castle (DDC) has been founded by a small group of enthusiastic
Apple II users. At first we started a BBS to easily share ideas, experiences,
files, rumors, facts and other information. Unfortunately we found out that
a lot people don't have a modem or greatly dislike calling a BBS every now
So in September 1994 we started publishing a disk. We filled it with interesting
messages and programs - consisting of self written software, but also software
coming from other sources. There was lot of interest, but it became clear
that people were looking for a paper based magazine instead of a so called
diskazine. In December 1994 the first issue on paper was a fact! It was
a magazine full with information about the Apple II computer, information
that had been gathered from various sources during the last three months.
Our goal is easy: publishing a simple magazine with much information, tips
techniques, reviews, releases and so on about the Apple II. Besides the
magazine there still is a disk that contains software from subscribers.
Because of the increasing success and the international interest, we will
be publishing DDC in English starting with the June issue (number 7). There
will no longer be a Dutch version available. The increasing number of subscribers
will lead to a more various and better quality magazine we hope.
A subscription costs $40 including shipping and handling. Disk or magazine
subscription only, costs $25, also including S&H.
If you're interested in our magazine which is published by each Dutch Apple
day (quarterly), please contact us! We're eager to tell you more about our
goals, help desk, BBS, magazine, disk, etcetera.
