Hi all,
Just a quick note to share a little discovery I made today. If anyone here has bought a VTech KidiPhoto Art Studio for their children if you connect it to your AROS machine via USB it works as a very competent graphics tablet. We were happily drawing with it today in Lunapaint on a 1600x1200 resolution screen. Also, AROS can access its internal memory so you can copy across the photos and artwork your children have taken/created with it.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Nice! This reminds me that it feels to be the right time for an AROS only magazine ; )
@all
Would you buy an AROS magazine (PDF) (with Workshops, reviews, interviews)

Hmm... not much interest in an AROS magazine then? I remember, back in the day, eagerly waiting for the publication dates of the various Amiga mags (remember Amiga Shopper, Amiga Computing, AUI, etc?). Back pre-internet they were the source of information, and I've still got a load of them on the shelves for reference for my classics (if ever I get the time to put the poor old things back together...)

In the age of the internet, is a magazine needed? Well, probably not for experienced users, but we do get people here who never used the original Amiga or for whom it was so long ago the details are fuzzy. For that cetagory of user a magazine might provide a more focussed route into the AROS world. Also, there have been a few calls here for programming tutorials, so that's another thing a magazine format could provide (personally, I'd dlike to see some tutorials on using PortablE on AROS). Anyway, for those reasons I think it's something worth considering.

Cheers,
Nigel.

It is absolutely worth.... but it includes work and that is the problem i think.

That's always the problem... Anyway, if you were getting this going and wished for any articles re. general usage, rexx coding, DTP, database setup etc. I'd be happy to contibute - just give me a nice long deadline to work around the demands of work and family!

Cheers,
Nigel.

P.S. any submitted articles would og course be properly proof-read aand spell-checked... :->

Cool about the tablet. As for an AROS "magazine" sure, maybe one day, but there's not nearly enough stuff that's interesting to fill more than a few pages per month. Sure it could be "padded", but then it'd be half junk, which leaves a bad taste if it's something that a person has to pay for.

But then is it an AROS magazine, or a multi amiga format magazine ? I guess a good compromise between the two could be to test/review 68k amiga software in 68k aros. Would actually be semi useful too I guess.

You might be suprised at just how many pages a good tutorial with illustrations can fill up...

Cheers,
Nigel.

The issue with free famagzines written by volounteers, is the long time required for a single article to be written, and the short time needed for people to get sick of writing for free.

Then there are also some little problems like "who's correcting articles", "who's arranging graphics and impagination" and so, but they can be more easily solved.
