Dear PCR friends, I was not sure if I was going to post a thred about this, as I don't want to seem like I'm bragging or anything, but Micro Mart (UK-Based weekly computer mag) have started commissioning me to write hardware and software reviews for them. It's only a bit of a hobby as I have a fullt time day job, but I'm really pleased about it and I wanted to say thanks to PCR forum for being one of the places where I've learned most about computers and found that I enjoy writing about them:thumb:

If anyone ever gets the magazine (out every Thursday in most newsagents and superstores;) ) Then look out for reviews buy a guy called Ian Burkinshaw (for that is me). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated via this forum, or indeed to Micro Mart itself! (Unless of course you think my reviews are crap, in which case perhaps it would be better if you didn't say anything)

Anyway, thanks again all! :thumb:

well how about this, when your review comes out, take a picture of it and send it in, perhaps they will load it in the review section along with the pic showing the issue it was in.

Congratulations! :D

I'm with Alf as far as not getting it in the states. If you get an extra copy, send it to me and I'll tell you what I think. Then I could send it to Alf and so on and so forth :D

If not, congrats anyway :thumb:

I'm going to look for a way to mention PCR if i can, but so far their guidelines seem pretty strict as they have their own discussion forums and don't like peeps being directed to 'the competition'. Anyhow, they seem a good bunch and the mag is one of the few I've read that doesn't seem to be dominated by a hardware or software vendor. What i will definitely do is try and get as many of your names in as possible...you know...things like...'digital photo guru called Quadophile reckons'...or: 'IT femme fatale, and Lara Croft mentor, Sexy Bex once told me'...that kind of thing. Now if only Ian C had a more interesting name ...mmmm...Mr Sexy Bex?:D. let's see if we can come up with a nickname for him and try and get him mentioned for all his great work on this site!!:thumb:

I get sent the stuff to review...I got a wireless keyboard/mouse combo and a voice (singing) training software package with headset and microphone today (...it's quite exciting to see what's sent to me!). Most has to go back and i may get to keep some stuff, but to be honest, it doesn't really matter to me. I think writing is my first interest and it's nice to see my name in print. I very much doubt I'll get sent the hardware I would buy for my own rig! It would be great to be able to say: Mmmm...send me a mobo, PSU, CPU. ram...etc...(eventually building a high-end PC) but it just won't be the case. Most of the stuff I get sent will probably be a pain in the ass to store or a cost to send back!

I have copyright of all the reviews I write so there's no reason I can't post them, say, on PCR (assuming that Ian C and the good peeps who invest their valuable time are happy to read them). Micro Mart simply have the right to use my reviews in any publication or web site they like and they may decide that they are so bad they don't want to publish them anywhere...so I don't think I want to get too cocky about this.

It's just a very nice feeling and I hope it works well, but i can't imagine doing this well without the ideas I can steal from PCR forum members:D.

Micro Mart is a UK magazine, but PCR is global!! So as far as I'm concerned, MM is cool, but PCR is cooler:thumb:
