Some time ago I remember browsing through some staff interviews and I remember one of the staff saying that he left ZZap for a different opportunity that would pay him UKP4400 a year or thereabouts.

Now, I understand that the median age for staff seemed to be about 20... and that the pound had a generally higher exchange rate back then... and inflation... and that even today, UK publications seem to pay less than US... and so on, but even so, doing the math made my head spin that that would have been a move up.

Anybody who was collecting a ZZap check mind giving me some sense of what those positions paid back then? (I guess it would explain all the pot noodle discussions...)

Waiting patiently (vainly) for the Def Guide to CU Amiga...
