Good news everyone ;)! Next week, on 9th June 2008, a tribute magazine to the Amstrad Action will be released after it was 18 months in the making.
Amstrad Action was the best selling and longest running magazine for the Amstrad CPC computer range and reached over 100 issues. Currently the last finetuning is going on and on next monday, you can get it as PDF (free) or as a printed issue (minimal amount of money) which contains news, reviews, interviews with the ex-staff of the AA, interviews with people of the scene and of course much more.
I can’t wait to get it and of course I will post another message here if it gets released next week :).

Hmm, seems to be a good week for CPC news =).

John Kavanagh brought the CPCOxygen website, together with the Amstrad Action scans, back online. He is currently uploading the last issues of AA, so you will find all 117 issues in the future. Here is John’s complete posting from the newsgroup:

From a dusty DVD-R from depths of a bottom drawer in a dark room full of
disembodied computer parts, from a far far away land comes the return of CPC
Oxygen (including Amstrad Action magazine scans).The site is hosted on a free webhosting site that gives a generous 5 GB of
space with not many restrictions, check it out at

I’m currently in the process of uploading the AA scans, then I’ll be putting
my effort in getting every issue online, all 117 of them 🙂
