Bag a free yearly Acorn User subBy Chris Williams. Published: 13th Apr 2003, 15:56:05 | Permalink | Printable
Don't thank us, thank Tau PressAcorn User magazine have meekly opened a competition this week where you can try and win a year's subscription to their publication. We say meekly because there's no Announce post nor a PR email to the various RISC OS editors (as far as we can tell). Instead AU editor Rob Donaldson's promotion was found tucked snugly away in the Misc group and we can only assume publicity was not on the agenda when they came up with this particular stunt.
"Celebrating the exciting future of RISC OS and another great year for Acorn User", writes Rob in his announcement today, signalling that the first three months of 2003 were just a warm up, Bill Bailey style. "Its publisher, Tau Press, are delighted to be able to offer the chance to win a free year's subscription to Acorn User."
The plan is, drop an email to Rob answering the question: 'In which year was Acorn User launched?'. Your options are a) 1981, b) 1982 or c) 1983 but sadly no d) 2003. There's no mention of how the winner will be picked, how we'll find out who the winner is, when the winner will be picked, details of the subs up for grabs nor any other terms and conditions except that the closing date is the 24th April 2003. We've dropped Rob an email so we'll keep up updated if we learn of anything.
And good luck.
