AMR is 1 and a little bit

Actually, it's first birthday passed in silence almost 2 weeks ago.

Sadly no big update to celebrate (despite our best intentions) as the team, and especially Codetapper and myself have been rather busy with other things of late so we haven't had much time to dedicate to AMR.

There have been a lot of updates over recent months, but most have been in the background - mainly data additions, notably a huge number of reviews indexed from French magazines Joystick and Generation 4.

Here are the current stats for those that are interested (actually, I'm a little shocked!):
Total reviews indexed: 47419
Total page scans: 37421
Total reviews with page scans: 20986
Archive size: approx 12GB (not including the disk/CD images on Zetr0's server)

Thanks again to RCK (and also to Zetr0).

If I was wearing a hat I would take it off to you AMR dudes.

Of course the biggest form of thanks would be to contribute. Get scanning everyone.

Thanks guys for an awesome effort, really adds a whole other dimension to HOL to be able to check reviews from back in the day while browsing through game info. Also nice to randomly read through mags.

Many more anniversaries to come I hope.

Awesome stuff.

Probably the best magazine resource in the world.

Carlsberg don't make tribute websites to Amiga Magazines. But if they did, they would be just like AMR.

(If you've not seen the adverts for Carlsberg Lager you probably wont get that)

I could have sworn the project was much older. It has become immediately indispensible.
