Reply to thread

I have to admit every time I see a thread like this I feel somewhat nostalgic for the publications that have long since fallen by the wayside. I can remember the excitement of wandering into WHSmiths on a Thursday after school; and (with the exception of one week) having a new Acorn magazine on the shelf each time.

Acorn Computing/The Micro User was, for many years, my first choice namely because I was a late starter in getting a proper RISC OS machine.

Acorn User joined in about the same time, albeit only occasionally, as my interests at the time fell a little outside the remit of AU.

Archimedes World, with its intriguing layouts, was long a favourite; if only to try and understand some of the content. It seemed to sit on a middle ground between AU and MU but managed to impress regardless.

After a visit to the Beebug showroom in 1994, the remaining Beebug magazines joined my collection; then RISC User and the ill-fated Acorn Action.

Since then... RISC World, Acorn Publisher and various others.

Am I one of the few RISC OS users to have read virtually all of the magazines to appear for RISC OS machines in the last ten years? Or beyond?
