In any case, the copied thing we tried didn't work very well. Compute! had the exclamation mark for most of it's life, until the company that produces Omni magazine purchased it - then they dropped the !. That happened in the early 90's. I actually don't know if Compute is still being published - it really stunk after Omni bought it, but I thought the little Compute's Gazette insert was pretty cool - it was still there in '93, I believe. C= magazines are still enjoyable 10 or 15 years after they are printed, PC magazines (if they are enjoyable at all) are pretty much useless after 6 months. Just fluff and reviews and ads. -- Robin Harbron email@example.com http://www.tbaytel.net/macbeth - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
