Thank you to Qercus (jc) for the chance to renew my subscription and have a good look at what I would be missing if I didn't.

I did things rather differently to Martin Hanson in that I only looked at issue 283. My reasoning being that if someone is sending out a free magazine to tempt me to renew it should be the "best" of the current bunch. My original subsciption was to Acorn Publisher not to Acorn User as I was, and still am, interested in DTP and computer graphics. Issue 283 was very much lacking in the DTP and graphics side of things and to be honest did not do a lot for me. So in fact this issue confirmed to me that my decision not to renew my subcription was the correct one. Sorry John.

Bias - It is not often that I agree with JC (I have kill-filled in the news groups) but in this case you cannot claim a bias between Castle and ROL when one side has produced nothing new, not that other one has done that much! :-)
