order to create a 250+ player on-line environment, which essentially has
been designed by the customer base itself. With an open architecture

F86f-30 Sabre. Target Korea is currently undergoing closed beta testing and
is expected to be simultaneously available in open beta for both Windows and
Macintosh systems within 90 days.
