300 baud magazine

Unread postby zahal » Fri Apr 02, 2010 3:34 pm

Just came upon the website of 300 baud mag.

http://www.300baudmagazine.com/

Sadly, issue numero uno is sold out twice and apparently for good.
Anyone here managed to grab a copy?

A paper mag? How charmingly retro!

Hopefully the fact that it's sold out will prompt the publishers to churn out more copies. If there's that much demand, they ought to make more of these. Though ultimately it might just be easier to publish it online.

Yep, I got one. I was going to write up something on it for the blog, but haven't gotten around to it - just too much going on.

They have issue #2 out. So if you missed the first one now is your chance to jump on it.

Cute cover photo on this one too!

I ordered mine on Friday; the confirmation e-mail I received said it's supposed to ship at the end of this coming week. I'll try and post something up on the blog covering both issues after it arrives.

Weird. I tried paying with Paypal and it said "Credit Cards are not accepted" and wants me to use my bank account...

If you have a "beginner" account you can't accept credit cards.
