Retro Computing Today - What is the big idea?

There seems to be a growing interest in computers and technology of yesteryear. It is left to a handful of small magazines to fill the gap, with profitable publications such as Computer and Video Games dedicating less than 4 pages to "The Old School". Retro Computing Today aims to be one of the first professional publications to cover all topics, instead of concentrating on one particular computer or platform. Retro Computing Today aims to cover as many topics as there are interests for. Obviously, the more support a particular platform receives, the more of the magazine will be dedicated to covering it, however, we would hope to provide some sort of balance, unlike at least 90% of current publications, whom tend to concentrate on the Windows/XBox platform and the likes. Details are sketchy at the minute, as the publication is still in early planning stages. We can confirm the following: Launch issue for early May 2002.8 copies a year (1 every 6 weeks). With enough demand, we will move towards 10 copies a year (1 every 5 weeks).Special edition no. 1 will be available to pre-order soon. If you would like to shape this publication, please email me with your suggestions or comments. If you would like to write any articles for the launch issue, please forward them in .txt format, with the subject matter as Submissions 092246. We would appreciate greatly any help we can get.

This is pretty cool! This is a possibility for the MSX community to write great articles in a professionally published magazine.

Topics that come in mind: Uzix, FudeBrowser, MSX Revival Project.
