I don't remember which issues I purchased from you @Bandit, but this is my collection. Your Computer probably has the best memories of any magazine for me. Its the one my sister got me a subscription for so I read it from cover to cover each month.

Me too. I had several dozen issues, all very dog-eared and coverless. I eventually junked them as the damp and mould had got to them, which was a big shame. Mind you they would be in storage even if I hadn't, as I'm getting less and less likely to ship my pre-emigrating stuff over as the years pass.

Rather embarrassingly I can tell you precisely which ones @PeterJ. It was YOUR COMPUTER MAY 1983 VOL.3 No.5 and YOUR COMPUTER SEPTEMBER 1983 VOL.3 No.9 which you purchased on the 17th April 2011 for the princely sum of 99p each and they were subsequently delivered on Thursday the 21st. Here are the actual mags. If you look closely the creases and tears will match :lol:

I spoke to @pavero on the 17th and a month later @Einar Saukas and @djnzx48. Months earlier I had been congratulating Gazzosa (@Alessandro) on claiming a famous hat-trick of Speccy Tour wins that took him level pegging with gaming maestro Alex Lux. A tad before that I had spoken to @Ralf and all while I was enjoying playing the amusing first z80 creation of a certain fellow in this thread that featured an orange stamp. Hello @R-Tape :)

It's a small world.

Your Computer's the current round of ZXSR reviews being added - into the last 12 issues. Never read it BITD but it is a really interesting mag and the reviews are nice and simple :-)

It didn't click for ages either that the adventure reviewer, Hugo North, is actually a pseudonym! My dimwittery is astonishing sometimes...

Hi Bandit! I think you must have got me mixed up with someone else.
