Probably one of the most famous and long-lived diskmags to appear on the Atari ST (grin!)
Maggie is an independently produced non-commercial diskmag with an interesting past, enjoyable present, and (hopefully) active future.. Maggie had its roots in the demo scene of the early 'nineties, and quite a lot of coverage is still concerned with the activities of the present day demo makers and state of the art coders working on the ST, and Falcon, with anything of interest from the Jaguar sometimes included as well.. Maggie has broadened to take on quite a lot of other topics, and also features multimedia sections similar to ST News, quite a bit of humour, programming tips, games reviews, interviews and even more..
Where did it come from.
The Maggie Diskmagazine started life as the Lost Boys Diskmag, back in June 1990.. From issue seven it went back to Germany to become the plaything or property of German Demo meisters Delta Force.. From issue eleven, after they had given up, it came back to the UK where it remains in the hands of the present management until this day..
Just who are these Maggie people anyway ?
Quite a lot of other people have helped out, from Mike Noyce and Kev Davies, through to Keefy, Tronic, Tony Greenwood, Jody Smith, Dave Hollis (ST+) and we've even had feedback from people in different parts of the world with the odd textfile or three. Many others have been involved in the past, but a complete list would need a Web Page all by itself..
So far, we have released 22 issues of Maggie, all of which have done well. We've also produced a couple of special issues, one is the famous 'Guide to Classic Videogaming' and the other, called 'Eezi-PC', is an anti-PC issue. This was released on 22nd February at the WAG meeting on that day and should be available on the 'net now.
