I noticed that a couple of days ago as well, you'd think the fact that the tape has a (c) 1990 on it would be a clue to him! :)

Phew!
Looking at the header, I thought Lee spotted one of the mistakes in the DEF Tribute! :shock: 8)

Well I have read just about every word of it and didn't come across any obvious mistakes, apart from some text being hard to read, ie black on dark grey and purple on blue, what were you thinking of Mr. Zzapback? :)

There may be, of course, unobvious mistakes in there ;-)

If you'd like to play along at home, don't highlight the spoiler text

He was thinking whatever Zzap!'s designers were "back in the day", seeing as they often used some fairly odd colour combinations.

Yeah sorry guys.
Some stuff turned out a bit different than I thought, on paper.
Some stuff for the better, and some things worse. Indeed.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the print quality.
Especially comparing it to that Sinclair User tribute thingie.
Black was grey, and paper was very thin, IIRC.
I was afraid my Zzap! would end up like that one as well.
Very grateful, it didn't.
With a slightly heavier cover it would have been even better though.
But hey, I don't wanna complain. 8)
