During 1988-90, I wrote numerous computer magazine articles on a freelance basis, the majority of which were published in Amiga User International magazine here in the UK.

I didn't keep much from back then and now I'm trying to track down either scans of my articles (preferable) or (if affordable) original copies of those magazines in which my work was published.

I've managed to acquire quite a lot of issues of AUI in pdf format, and have begun extracting my articles and uploading them to a blog I'm launching to mark International Amiga Day (this Sunday 31 May) and also the 30th anniversary of the Amiga this July.  

My new blog is entitled 'AMIGA meditations', and there'll be a selection of my work on there for people to freely download in jpg format from Sunday.  Eventually, I hope to make all my articles available, and will also be adding my own new 'meditations' to my past body of work, as posts on the blog.

BUT there are a few gaps in coverage, and I'm not quite certain when my last article was published in AUI, though it was before August 1990, as I'm not on the list of contributors in that issue.

Anyway, the point of this message is that I'm hoping that someone out there can please help me by providing scans of my articles if they either have the original magazines and can scan from them, or have entire magazines for the missing dates in pdf format.

The missing issues of Amiga User International which I am searching for are not, as far as I can tell, available online, and are as follows:

Amiga User International

Volume 2, Issue 5, May 1988.
Volume 2, Issue 8, August 1988.
Volume 2, Issues 10 to 12, October-December 1988.

Volume 3, Issue 10, October 1989.
Volume 3, Issue 12, December 1989.

Volume 4, Issues 2 to 7, February-July 1990.

I do hope someone out there can help!

Thanks in advance,

Stuart WIlliams

Blimey, how long does it take for an invite to come through for inbox? And secondly, is it worth it?? Why is it that I have a perfectly good email client on my phone but I am itching to have a go at this one. I guess the grass is still always greener elsewhere... #inbox

+Bob Ellis Too early to tell really - nothing earth shattering but will wait to see what it becomes. Just sent you an invite.

Inbox, on the other hand, seems pretty cool - again it isn't ground breaking as such, but I quite like the bundles and the reminders/pinning aspects of it. Needs a lot more playing with but it could be a keeper!

Thanks again +Vilmar Simson

Thought I was doing quite well until Swindon CC flew past me with ridiculous ease. I don't care though - I'm not in their gang with their stupid cycling shirts and shaved legs. Just want to enjoy it and get fit.
