Subject: Amiga Format News - for immediate dissemination!

Hi all,

Just wanted to telll you the latest news about Amiga Format.

  1. After five years of working on Amiga Format, Nick Veitch is finally leaving to pursue an editing career on a different magazine, called Computer Publishing which will be on sale in the UK in May. He'll still contribute as a freelancer to Amiga Format, and Ben Vost will take over the reins as editor.

  2. This means that we really could use a staff writer on Amiga Format to help with the production of the magazine. We'd prefer it if you were a 1200 owner, with an interest in music, the internet, coding and hardware and you knew how to write witty, informed and on time copy, in order to complement the skills of the efficient Amiga Format team. If not, but you're interested in the post which would involve you moving to Bath, send email explaining who you are, where your Amiga expertise lies and why you'd like the job, and we'll get you down for an interview. You can send an email to with the subject "New Staffer", or send a letter to the usual address of 30 Monmouth Street, Bath BA1 2BW.

  3. The third bit of news concerns two new mailing lists for the Amiga. The first - afb-announce is a list that gives out the details of what will be in the next issue of Amiga Format before it becomes on sale in the UK, or sent out to subscribers. If you want to know what we'll be covering in advance, you should subscribe to this list. You can do so by visiting and signing up. You can expect an email every four weeks or so.

We also have an open discussion list, called afb, which is available from It's a bit hectic, but it's a good place to get general (and specific) Amiga information. At the moment, the list gets about 65 messages a day, so it's quite busy, but offers the facility to read these messages on the web, so you don't have to have your mailbox filled with them constantly. Both mailing lists also have additional facilities in their calendar functions, which allow you to see important upcoming events; and polls, which allow for online voting on important topics. Join up, and see what you think.

All the best,
