AMR is perhaps the best magazine resource of all formats today. It is a truly amazing work of art. I just hope that it lives forever.

P.S. If you need an off site backup I could bung some nice big drives in the post.

I remember in one of the mags I used to read (AF, CUAmiga or AP) there was a cock-up by the editor when he allowed a swear-word to be printed - in a caption, I think. The next edition featured a grovelling apology. Has this been scanned into your archive yet?

Or was it all a dream?

WooHoo! That's it! And in an article aimed at kid's software too!

Did anyone lose their job over this? Its understandable if they did - it was a huge cock-up.

There's a short trivia article about it in AMR, which also includes the apology that AF printed:

I noticed that the Amiga World offerings at AMR are a little anemic which is sad given that it was the most popular Amiga magazine in North America (circulation-wise). I have a complete set and will soon be scanning them in so I'll do them to meet AMR's requirements for inclusion. I can still upload them to the Usenet though, right? I like to spread the magazines around as widely as possible.

There is no exclusivity deal with the data you submit to AMR if that is what you are asking?

Amiga Joker Scans

Hi,

I've uploaded 8 Full Issues of Amiga Joker a few Days ago:

AMR

Amiga Joker 11/1991 - COMPLETE!
Amiga Joker 12/1991 - COMPLETE!
Amiga Joker 02/1992 - Cover and first Pages missing
Amiga Joker 03/1992 - some Pages missing
Amiga Joker 04/1992 - uploaded 66 additional Scans (54 Scans or so were already there)
Amiga Joker 05/1992 - COMPLETE!
Amiga Joker 06-07/1992 - COMPLETE!
Amiga Joker 08-09/1992 - COMPLETE!
Amiga Joker 12/1992 - COMPLETE!

By Full I mean:
Some are COMPLETE, even with the Commercials and other Stuff,
and the Rest is missing a few Pages that went lost over the Years.

More coming up in the next Weeks or so.

Enjoy,
logix



Note:
I'm missing the Issues 11/89 to 10/91.
It would be great If someone could Scan these.
