    I was gutted to learn that there would be no more MM but I am so glad to learn about this space.

    Best wishes to all the MM staff (past and current) and thank you for all your work. Good look for the future.

    I echo the words of many others, may MM rest in peace.  Is this forumite forum a similar hive of scum and villainy? or do the noobs stay out of sight of the pro l33t people (i believe thats how it was spelled in the day).

    i too shall miss the occasional forray into the thread and the nostalgia it did bring.

    I’ve just registered, and deleted the MM favourites entry.

    I think that was probably the oldest favourites link of all, it

    must have been in my favourites since the ICL M40 286 beast

    was operational.

    It is sad to see MM sink but after reading the final issue it was obvious why I stopped buying it several years ago.

    I felt it was never the same after Simon stopped being the editor.  The only part of the final issue I enjoyed was Simon’s last bit which reminded me how it use to be.

    Also the mag needed a name change in my opinion.

    There were lots of views over the years from people upset that the mag no longer met their individual needs. Most views failed to appreciate the changes in the industry and the needs of the wider audience.

    Hardly matters now, though, does it?

    I see that Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Prog Magazine, and TeamRock radio all folded in December (most if not all of them have been rescued, for now). I have no doubt that folks on the forums there know exactly what went wrong and how it could all have been fixed, all without any access to sales metrics, the advertising desk, industry knowledge, survey results, or other insider information.

    Very sad.

    Glad to see some “old” chaps still about.

    What no archives?     :whistle:

    I believe Lee got hold of a copy of the Forum, but it won’t be that easy to make it available.

    I’ll clarify on that. I did not get a copy of MM. I tried and tried the email I was given even from multiple addresses but never got a response. I was at first told it was waiting for me but I can only come to the conclusion that some one did not what me to have it. Shame really, I would of like to of been told rather than waist my time coming up with ways to bring it across but now to be honest I could not give two flying ————-! :yahoo:

    Oh, I was unaware of this, Lee. I’ve heard nothing more from Simon, and I assumed you’d got hold of the data and were steadily working out what to do with it. I’d no idea he hadn’t replied to your emails. I can’t think what’s happened. I’ll contact Simon again and see what’s what. All very strange. I’m honestly as much in the dark about this as you.

    I just left it at that, I did not want to keep chasing it and did not want to keep on pestering you. Nothing worse than being the middleman.

    I returned to the final issue of MM last week, with a small tear in my eye 🙁

    I know I’m a bit late to the party.  Had a bit of a manic year so far.

    Just wanted to say hi, I’m another refugee from the micromart forum.

    Such a shame the vast wealth of knowledge that was the mm forum has vanished. I wasn’t to much of a regular but had been there a long time. My “E4300 Dave special” is still going strong (other than having a new mb).

    It nice to see a few familiar names.

    Pull up a chair, have some caffeine and welcome.

    Throw another banker on the fire, someone.

    There will be no explanation. Battery is dead.

    WoF‘s bàttèry, or the device he was posting on?

    We need to know.

    We also need to know if a bàttèry is a French power storage device….
