No the Amiga section is still there mate, albeit small; I bought the mag today and there's an article on Amiga shooters - Cannon Fodder, Breathless, Genetic Species and Robocop 3.

Ah, that'll be the new issue then - the one I was talking about was the previous issue

It certainly seems to be just a fortnightly thing now as DDNI said.

Yep, that's this week's issue. I've seen it too, today.

I wondered why my ears were burning

Anyhow he took this kid (who travelled miles and miles each weekend with his dad) under his wing and showed me coding, shared his sizable collection of WaReZ disks and gave me his entire collection of back issues of Amiga Format, which I still have!

I wonder if anyone else remembers Impulse in UK? I never was able to find any of their disks online, or any mention of them.

I think they changed their name to EquinoX (or everyone jumped ship) because half way through my letters (yeah, sad but I kept them all, mainly long lists of 68k asm) their stationary (which was very professional) changed to Equinox (although I guess not the famous european Equinox?), and I also got letters from a guy called "Son" (Chinese?) in Kent who was also a member of this group...

To be fair it gets as much coverage as the Mac as they share the same column space every other week. Always read it and often buy MM but the column needs more hardware/Software reviews as there is quite a lot outt there . Often is a nostalgic look back rather than forward looking.

I picked up a copy a couple of weeks ago and not a single computer building article - very little of interest, what has happenend to MM?

MM hasn't been the same since the Internet killed the classifed ad. It's more of a general interest computing mag nowdays, aimed at people who don't wish to spend 5-6 for a regular PC title.

I have to admit that I only buy it for Sven's Amiga column. There's a 4 page Amiga overview in the latest issue, for example.
