Trivia Challenge

by Edward Goss,

The Grab Bag

This is the latest in ATPM’s series of Trivia Challenges. Answers to this month’s Trivia Challenge will be found in the next issue of ATPM. If you have any suggestions for future Trivia Challenges, or wish to comment about almost anything, please e-mail me at

This month’s Trivia Challenge is a grab-bag of questions to stir your investigative spirit. You might have to do some checking around to find some of the answers. The ATPM trivia questions’ answers can be found by searching the “Back Issues” area of the ATPM Website. The first reader to e-mail me the correct answers to all 10 questions will receive their choice of a System 8 CD (easily upgraded to System 8.1) or an “Alley 19" bowling game. The second set of correct answers will receive the other prize. So take part in:
