I have often talked to the originator of The Micro User about starting a British version of Make, but electronics is declining.
and I live in an aerospace dominated town
maybe this is the excuse you were looking for to buy a tabletPC and take a digital subscription
Not up there in the barbarian north.
It used to be that I could go into Borders (before they went bust here) and have a selection of electronics magazines to chose from, some European, some US titles). Nuts and Volts, Elektor, Everyday Electronics ..... Heaven, I could even get a decent cup of coffee while I browsed. Very civilised.Even WH Smiths used to stock Elektor. Now, nothing! My local WH Smiths stocks Carp-Ticklers weekly and Ferret Keeper monthly - but not an electronics magazine in sight.
The nice people in WHSmiths will usually order any magazine in for you and put it to one side
... yeah, its not the same as being able to browse and pick the one you want. :-(I think subscriptions are probably the way forward. That way I will actually get mail that I actually want!
I know when I as a student many years ago the main public libraries were always a good place to browse and read the latest magazines
