Er… 150 issues, that is – it’s 25 years!

GAG News, the magazine published by Herbert zur Nedden for the German Archimedes Group, has reached something of a milestone. Herbert has been in touch to let me know that he has just published issue 150. The magazine is published in printed form every two months, and it doesn’t take a maths genius (luckily for me) to work out that 150 issues is 300 months – which is twenty five years.

Congratulations to Herbert and everyone else involved for that achievement, and good luck for the next twenty five years!

One of the rarest species these days in the world of RISC OS is the Lesser-spotted Archive – well, more specifically, it’s new editions of the Lesser-spotted Archive. However, the London Show, which opens its doors to the public in a little over an hour from now, is expected to be the scene of a mass sighting.

Jim Nagel will be bringing a hot-off-the-press new edition – volume 24, issue 2 – and subscribers attending the show will be able to collect their copy, whereas subscribers who don’t attend can jolly well wait for it to arrive in the post! Jim will also be taking orders for a new end-of-volume DVD, which is currently being prepared, with a price tag of £22 (£20 at the show), or £12 (£10) for those upgrading from the volume 22 edition.

Yup – tomorrow, initially available at the London Show!

Christopher Dewhurst will be bringing along the newest issue of on-off-on-off-under-new-management PDF magazine Drag ‘n Drop to the London Show tomorrow, with it becoming available to purchase online after the event. Costing just £3.50 for a single issue, the magazine includes a wide range of articles, news, and type-in listings – which can also come in type-in form when purchasing via !Store.

There is no news as yet on whether this issue of the magazine features any crazy page numbering fun!
