Qercus says sorry for latenessBy Chris Williams. Published: 16th Feb 2005, 16:13:03 | Permalink | Printable
New issue's in the post [Updated]Media watch Qercus has apologised for its irregular printing schedule, stressing this week that it's "back on track". Although its subscribers have not seen an issue of the monthly magazine since October 2004, we're told that a new issue is now in the post.
John Cartmell, editor and publisher of Qercus, confessed: "We have had problems with recent issues of the magazine because of printing and administration issues. These are now resolved and issue 273 of the magazine is being posted out to subscribers this week."
John admitted that he doesn't "yet know how long it will take to get [the new issue] through the newsagent distribution system", so subscribers can ask for a copy direct from the magazine in the mean time. He added: "Be assured that subscriptions are calculated on the number of issues received so they will automatically be extended by the length of the delay."
Previous issues of the magazine have appeared in April, May, July and October. The inaugural issue of Qercus, formed after Acorn Publisher merged with Acorn User in 2003, was also late - again, John blamed administration headaches for the delay.
Issue 273 includes a show report and a preview of the A9home.
Update at 19:34 16/2/2005
We've learnt from well placed sources that the A9home preview was written after Qercus had a hands-on play with the A9home, a week before the machine was presented at a recent usergroup meeting. The machine was not signifcantly different to the unit reviewed by Drobe's Martin Hansen.
Qercus says sorry, issue 273 in the post
Maybe if John stopped posting to Usenet so much, he'd have more time for the magazine? Hm?
