Print version coming soon ...

Lots of people have asked us for a printed version of the magazine. And we said, why not? So from the June 2011 issue, you can have your cake with jam and cream. The online version will remain FREE, but you can also have a paper copy, available worldwide.

We're not sure how much it will cost (depends on the number of subscribers) but it'll be around £5. Which works out at £30 per year - cheaper than a night down the pub.

Would you be interested?

If so, to help us cost the print version effectively, please register your interest at Subscription details will follow soon.

We really are that pathetic, yes.

Go on, you know you want to. Below be the link:
