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 would like to contribute a Trivia Challenge, please e-mail me at

I’m afraid there were no winners in last month’s Trivia Challenge, “Didn’t I Know You When?” Try again! This month’s prize of a dynamite ATPM T-shirt goes to the first two correct entries I receive at Individual readers are eligible to win only once every twelve months.

This month’s Trivia Challenge is a potpourri of sports questions. So, fire up the remote, tune into SportsCenter, and see if you can answer the questions in:

The Rules

Each question has only one correct answer. The answers are stored in a hermetically sealed envelope guarded by a playful Siamese cat named “Bonnet” who lives in our house.

This Month’s CD Recommendation

Redux” by The Reducers. Formed in the Summer of 1978 in New London, Connecticut, The Reducers have proven over the last 22 years that they are one of the best hard-driving rock ’n’ roll bands around. “Redux” is an anthology of 29 tracks covering the first ten years of their career, featuring music from their first three LPs, rarities, and previously unreleased tracks. As Lou Reed put it, “You can’t beat two guitars, bass, and drum.” The Reducers prove him right with every tune. “Redux” is especially for those of you who think Green Day invented this kind of music.

Parting Pointer

The “Parting Pointer” is ATPM’s “Tips and Tricks” section. If you have a pointer you’d like to share with other readers to make their Mac experience easier or more enjoyable, please send it to me at Here’s this month’s “Parting Pointer”:

ATPM is a great info source for me and my friends here who used Macs since 1984 (128K). However, I notice that your coverage of the international Mac is null. ie, what apps support Arabic? Is this new app WorldScript compatible. Thanks for considering.
Daniel Chvatik (ATPM Staff) · July 6, 2000 - 01:01 EST #2
Thank you for your feedback. We would gladly try to improve our international coverage, but in most cases our staff members simply lack the qualification and testing resources to report on the international aspects, such as proper support for other languages. We are trying to improve in areas where we can, such as by introducing a new links section with country- specific information.

I need the answer for the forfeited baseball/football question. I don't care about last month's answers. I NEED THE ANSWER FOR THAT QUESTION!
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · October 4, 2001 - 00:22 EST #4
Dude ... calm down. You'll essentially always find answers to trivia questions on the following month. Since this page is from an issue of last year, the "next" month is already there. You'll find the answers on the August 2000 trivia page.

The Apple Sherlock link doesn't work.
Lee Bennett (ATPM Staff) · September 17, 2002 - 20:49 EST #6
Well, it is a two-year-old link, after all. Apple was bound to have done some rearranging some time."

Try this link instead.
