Dear Members,

As you know, QLink was originally
launched in November, 1985. In the
years that followed you, as our loyal
members, have helped us build a unique
online community for Commodore
computer users. I want to thank each
of you for your contribution, your
support and your feedback over the

The computing industry has changed
dramatically since those first days of
online communications. Commodore
ceased to produce Commodore brand
computers in 1993. Sadly, the company
has recently closed its doors entirely.
The Commodore computer, once a leader
in the industry, has been replaced by
faster, more powerful systems. Many
software vendors no longer support the
Commodore operating system.

Now we find, with great regret, that
we simply can no longer support the
QLink service. It has become
impossible for us to maintain the
product up to a standard of quality
that we can be proud of. Many of you
I'm sure have noticed a diminished
level of product quality in the last
few months due to these technical
limitations. Without technical
support from the industry, we are not
able to add new services, fix existing
problems, or prevent new ones.
Therefore we have made the sad
decision to discontinue QLink as of
November 1, 1994.

We would like to thank each of you for
your long and continued support and,
if at all possible, keep you as part
of our online community.

If you now have the ability to use
America Online (PC-DOS, Windows or
Macintosh), we invite you to convert
your membership to one of these other
systems. For details on what these
versions have to offer and the system
requirements needed to run them, see
the document in this area entitled
"Converting to America Online."

For details on the last month of
service for QLink, important dates and
billing information, see the document
in this area entitled "Your Final

We have enjoyed serving you. Thanks

Steve Case
