Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:09, 26/6/2023 | ,
 

The latest copy of Archive (May/June) has been released. It's another 52 page monster with a very seasonal cover (Lulworth Cove is well worth the visit if you have not been there).

Archive 24:5 Reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:37, 15/11/2019 | ,
 
It has been a long time in the making, but Archive 24:5 is finally out!
 
It is a solid 56 page edition catching up on developments in the last year or so. Jim Nagel is an old-school journalist (I still fondly remember his Computer Shopper columns in my youth) and he maintains very high production standards for the magazine.

More Acorn Magazine nostalgia

Posted by Mark Stephens on 12:20, 13/10/2018 |
 
In a previous article, we covered some of the online resources for reading online some of the magazine from past years.
 
Now you can also enjoy the whole of The Frobnicate collection online. There has also been some lively discussion on the magazines online in the ROOL forums.
 
There is also some good content (especially technical articles) from Acorn User.
 
And if you want something right to to date, we should see new editions from Archive and Drag'n'Drop around the London show.
