Thanks for asking. No, I don't spend much time on here at all now. Am now a little out of Teddington in Hampton, but let's say my life took an unexpected turn. Am very well though.

You are missed - as is AE.

Glad you are in good form.....and may life continue to be interesting.

Some typical, classic, somewhat pathetic, management speak in there. I'd expect no less. (Nice to see they're, 'enhancing our presence in existing verticals' though)

Hope it works out better than the Maplin takeover did when I worked there.

I wonder whether Future will be better custodians of the Forum then Haymarket, or maybe they'll shut it dowm!
They may try to make it pay more. Or, once they read some of it, just put it out of its misery.

I believe Home Cinema Choice was losing money while What Hi Fi? is still making money.

Hmm. I'm not sure about this move. If Future are the same as the old Future Publishing, I'm afraid they don't have my trust .They scuppered some of my fave mags like PC Format. Must be the pursuit of £££…

Time will tell I s'pose...

Hi John,

How have you been? It's been a long while. What are you up to these days?

Wise move for Future then, getting rid of these two mags in particular HCC and HiFi choice and then acquiring WHF, two for the price of one.

I hadn't noticed that HFC have been sold too, I hope this doesn't mark the beginning of the end for them, I wonder if Future thought they were a bit too niche? Thanks for pointing that out gel .
