Micro Mart magazine

The UK Micro Mart magazine has a 4 page feature on the current state and future of the Amiga.
Written by Sven Harvey, it is an interesting read that is not without it's controversies "the Amiga is first and foremost a games console"!

The printed article, is supported by this online feature http://www.micromart.co.uk/default.a...featureid=3225

In the past I have bemoaned the lack of depth in the Magazines weekly Amiga half page. We should not forget however that this is the ONLY mass market magazine that caters for our Amiga!

We should support this magazine! It is only a couple of quid!!

Go buy it now , and write to the editor (Simon Brew editorial@micromart.co.uk )that the AMIGA coverage prompted you to do so

I agree. MM is the only magazine left that covers Amiga developments in any depth. After Amiga Active & Amiga Format folded, I used to get MM for the Amiga news.

MicroMart used to be where I met all my contacts for "off site backups"

I think my dad must hate MM.

I met my first Amiga contact, a guy from Nelson who was a member of IMPULSE (anyone remember them?) and my dad used to drive me there on a Saturday morning, we'd spend 3-4 hrs trading and reading magazines etc. and he'd wait outside in the car

It is kinda strange looking back because I was like 12-14yo and he was like 40+ I dont think this would be allowed today

Later after I met Sarek, who lived in Garstang which was much closer, he could drive home and come back later. He left me with his mobile phone (at a time when no-one had mobile phones) so I could phone up for the lift back.
