Free to a good home (others will be considered!), a large quantity of computer magazines, dating back to around 1980. I don't know how many there are, but if stacked would probably reach a height of 8ft.

Also ... don't forget my scaffolding - any offers?

I hoped someone would just say yes raftl

They are all general computing mags so things like Personal Computing World and Computing Today, there will also be a fewer number of mags like .net, web user, computer active, byte etc. Don't hold me to those names though.

It is quite a random assortment, the earlier ones are much more likely to be in complete series (because I had the money and they had some real content instead of reviews).

I know there was one series of magazine I threw away, can't remember which one it was.

I will be keeping all my specialist omg mags such as 6502 etc.

If I have a chance I will try to give a better reply, the mags are in about 15 random piles in three separate locations at the moment.

I am not bothered what happens to them, so if I see them re-advertised or in a skip it is fine. Just thought someone might be interested before they get tipped.

If nobody wants the lot, I will do rough sort by decade or title if anyone wants a particuar group.

Had a quick look through the magazines, here is a list of titles and earliest years I spotted, there may be earlier!

Computer Shopper 1992
Personal Computer World 1981
Practical Computing (or was it Personal??) 1981
PC Direct 1993
PC Pro
MicroMart
Internet Advisor

Going to the tip soon

If you just want one particular title I am prepared to siphon them out.

Hello,

I hope I am not too late. I am a collector of computer magazines and would love to collect all the magazines from you. I live in Wigan, just down the road smile

I am hoping you have not recycled them yet. oshocked

Best regards
