NEW (PAPER) MAGAZINE ABOUT ZX-81 (free :) )

Post by yerzmyey » Thu Jun 26, 2008 12:13 pm

Yo.

Not really "a discussions related to the creation of new hardware or software for the ZX80 or ZX81" but I think it's still kinda "Development". ;) If not, pls Admin to put this thread into "Misc".

Well, get to the point.
We will try to publish a new small paper-mag about ZX-81. It will be called "MONOCHROME". And it will be for free for about 20 - 25 first persons who would be interested and write their post-addresses into my email: yerzmyey_AT_interia.pl
Why such a number? Well, seems like the Forum has about 30 members at the moment. At most 20 of them are active. So I decided to set up this range (20-25).

Probably the mag will be also in electronic form, on the Net, but I don't have any DOC->PDF converter so if anybody could help - it would be nice.

As for the paper version - I don't take responsibility for post-offices work. I will send the issues to "subscribers" but if the post-office fails - well, sh*t happens (not too often, as far as I know, luckily).

We think that the mag will appear several times per year, depending on materials sent by ZX81 fans (!!) and depending on my money, hahahahaha. But maybe more often, who knows.

It will be kinda continuation of Andre's "ZX91" superb mag (however only less part of work is made on ZX81 computer, more work is made on PC. O tempora, o mores!!!!!!).

I will keep You informed and I hope You will also write some texts to the next issues (the first is kind of experiment :) ).
Articles don't have to be long (the mag is small) - about half of A4 page will do the trick. Pictures can be added.

If You need any more info - just write.

Greetz,
Y

Yo,

anybody would like to write some article about ZX81 (or clones)?
It need not to be long - a half of an A4 page or sommit (the magazine itself will not be too long actually).
I asked already some people and I wrote some stuff by myself too but still have several empty pages to fill. ;)

PS: I would like to remind You that the mag will be in paper form & is for free. I hope the first issue will be ready soon, so every person interested in geting the magazin, should contact me via PrivateMessage or by e'mail yerzmyey AT interia.pl

it's a testing issue so it depends on YOU if the mag will be alive (if nobody's interested the magazine will die :( :( ).

Byez,
Y

------------------
Oh, there might be a problem. The mag isn't too big (You know, I'm not a millionaire) so the texts can be from 0,5 to 1 page of A4 format (standard WORD page).



>What's the deadline ed?
------------------
Well, I can't tell about any details, it's simply hard to say, but I think I could try to make it work in a week or a week and a half? (I suspect).


All: let me know where should I send the magazine to. IT IS FREE. :) :) :) :) :) Hahaha.

Many thx, guyz

(While waiting for the "subscribers" I would like to add that we have still 3 free pages. Anybody wants to write any article?)
