No, I found this issue somewhere on the Internet, can't remember where though. I do have this issue somewhere in the post from the UK and if it arrives, I will scan and update the site with the one I scan.

For now I am extracting the pages from the PDF and will re-format the current issue to the same format as the ones I am scanning and sharing.

EDIT: re-formatted issue 35 has now been uploaded and linked on my site.
Many thanks! :cheers:

Hi Kodak80! Any interest in adding .jpg versions of your files, along with PDF?

Can I also suggest, you link each disk/disk set to the relevant instructions page.
It's not something I've seen anyone else do, but, it's really useful to have them at hand.

And possibly some overall notes? ie any entry in the list marked [Compressed] will need a blank disk image to decompress to, or say, disk 40: Boot with a blank disk to play the four shareware games.

I will stick with PDF issues as I am focusing on getting them added to my site and adding JPEGs would mean a restructure of the page and content.

Issue 12 PDF is now on my site and all coverdisks are now downloadable.

Excellent! Thanks :)

I'm looking forward to issue 43; The first ST only magazine I ever bought!

(I used to get New Atari User, which had some ST stuff in it. That was also an *excellent* magazine)

The £1.50 price ticket on the front brought back memories. You can't buy a decent mag these days for less than £5.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Thanks again!

Still waiting to International mail service to open back up from USA to Australia to send the magazines we talked about. I thought it would be opened back up by now.
