I don't want to knock JC too much because his heart is in the right place. However, the quality of the last two or three AUs was pretty poor - to the extent that I let my ex-Acorn Publisher subscription lapse when it expired.

Since we lost AP, I believe that the best paper magazine has been Archive. Paul B has produced this about as long as we've had ARM-powered "Acorn" computers (and longer than we've had RISC OS) and it's still going strong. It's a more modest publication (no colour, small format) but the quality has always been good - perhaps this is the secret of its success.

So Paul ought to be on the list of receipients for any "orphaned" articles. I think we need at least one paper magazine to complement Drobe et al.
