Hi,
I know they are available online but I prefer scouring real magazines :D
This is a long shot but do we have anyone near Bridgwater who could collect a load of mags who happens to be attending the next Leicester Abug meeting?
EBay item 142521710881
I will only bid if I get confirmation of a knight in shining armour...
I said it was a long shot!!

Lee.

Bridgwater, home of illuminated carnival , see also here :wink:

And if you can't get to Bridgwater, go to Weston-super-Mare Carnival :wink:

They're free, but the charities and good causes do appreciate if lots of money is donated.

Hi Lee,

Depends how fast you want them :wink:

I am from Bridgwater and my family are still there. I have just asked the ebayer whereabouts
they are and I could ask my parents to collect them if they are nearby.

My only problem would be that I could not collect them and send them on until closer to Christmas
as I currently live in Hastings.

Hi Russ,
Thank you very much for the offer.
Mak1024K has also said he could collect them.
Let's see if I win them first and take it from there :D

Okay, so some fool with his car has collected three boxes worth of old computer magazines while said fool was on route to Dorset to collect another old 1980s computer (no, not an Acorn this time)... :oops: #-o :? ](*,) :-# :-& :roll:

So thanks to the other member for offering up his parents as freight operators, luckily for them, they can stand down now :wink:
