Any one know what happened to Microcomputer Journal?  I've called, faxed
and emailed William (Bill) Gates.  I have yet to receive a second magazine
this year!

I guess his printing press got to him and he just vanished with my
subscription money.

 I«m quite amazed you have received any magazine *this* year!  When he
took the magazine over, I seem to recall early last year, I received I
think, two "complimentary" copies in lieu of what I thought I previously
had as a three year subscription.

 I really couldn«t figure it all out from his garbled description, so I
mailed him for clarification but got no answer.  He appeared to have no
e-mail address (a "conscientious ojector" it seems) and I«m not sure he
took Mastercard.  He had stated he would not be supplying copies to
newsagents either.  I not surprisingly presumed he had gone, or was in
the process of going down the plughole in high style!

 Pity, it was a good magazine while it ran!  Should I subscribe to
Circuit Cellar Ink.?

Latest issue of "Midnight Engineering" I picked up at Tech-America
(super-Radio-Shack) just a couple days ago has an ad on page 44 or so
for three magazines, M.E, MicroComputer Journal, and one other (desktop
publishing something?), including a subscription offer for all three in
one price.  It's at home, so I'll report more later.

I like MJ; I'm been looking for it, too.  I wonder if he was able to
retain any of the editorial staff when he bought it out and moved it to
Rocky Ford, Colorado?

No, he dropped the staff to cut costs.  I agree halfway with the
move, since about half of the columnists wrote fluff about installing
Windows 95 or the new crop of games.  (PC Mag or Byte covered
that.)  A mag about micro's and electronics should have had more
columns like jan Axelson's and Karl Lunt's.

I wrote an email to Mr. Gates and got this reply...

His response was dated 7/28/98, just two days after I sent him the
concerned message.  This isn't the first time I have waited over 3
months for an issue, so  I am not holding my breath!

As I understand it from my discussions with him he has slipped his
schedules yet again but is still producing. The economics are such that he
has to print the magazines on his press so he has been working frantically
to get the press to run reliably.
