Can someone tell me when the first PC Advisor Magazine was published? Just curious.

Most of my pcadvisors get recycled, Even tryed to compost one once as a test to see if it would break down into compost I think it still hasent lol,

What do they make the pcadvisor magazine out of as it takes ages to compost?

With PC/technology magazines, is there any point in keeping them beyond a year or so? Unless, with one eye on future nostalgia, you can identify a few issues that feature what might become seminal product reviews/articles. I will admit that PCW's monthly look back to five, ten, fifteen and twenty years ago is sometimes interesting from that point of view.

is 2 years back copies of PCA & Computeractive, I had a clear-out on Thursday and collection day is tomorrow.

I used to keep a dozen back copies but have not needed to reference them for a good year or more. Anyway its more challenging trying to access any answer I need on the net or sometimes here when I'm stumped.

Maybe someone should run a thread on the weirdest use for a pcadvisor magazine,
I got one wedged under my washing machine to stop the noise.

Have been taking PCA since its conception. I used to clip out the articles I wanted to keep and bin the rest. Having accumulated books on Windows 95, 98 and XP, plus a couple of upgrade/maintain/repair PCs, I pass on the mag to son in law and he recycles it on completion.
