Yes, Jack.

The EAB server is mentioned as a source for ISO images of the cover mounted CDs, which it was not possible to include on the DVDs due to their size.

Enjoyed rediscovering the old stuff i did - slightly egotistical, but what the hell

Well... I guess... with about 24 coverCD's, each taking roughly 700MB.... two DVD's can take 9.4 GB.... it kindof says itself they can't hold them CD's

I've been having trip down memory lane today.... mostly looking for the AmigaE issue (the one with 3.1i on the coverdisk^^)and following mags for the tutorial I'm certain I followed all those years ago.... Damn there were plenty advertising in the mag back then, wasn't it

ordered it too, 15 euro can't be bad

Do other such series exist? Would love to see Amiga Computing or C+VG or even the German Amiga Magazin on such DVDs... hmm, dream on

EDIT: do they have all ZZAP mags?? That would be cool too!?

EDIT AGAIN: found and ordered ZZAP and C+VG DVDs, was a bit tricky to find zzapstore URL but all ok now

I expect that the more copies they sell of these existing compilations, the more they will be encouraged to produce further compilations.

So I guess we're all doing a great job here!

Indeed, I'd love Amiga Computing. From day 1 that was without doubt my favourite Amiga magazine... I wish I'd not skipped the collection that I had

I'll ask Mort...

Didnt Europress, the publishers of CU Amiga, do an Atari ST magazine as well? Or was it just Future with ST Format?

Pretty sure EMAP published CU. I think Europress did Amiga Computing.

Didn't it go something like this....?

Future = Amiga Power/Amiga Format.
EMAP = CU Amiga/The One.
Europress = Amiga Action/Amiga Computing.

Emap definitely did CU Amiga, and they were still publishing out of Farringdon Lane in 1995...
Europress did Amiga Computing, and were bought out by IDG Media in 1994ish.
