Just got in today, scrunched up napkin-style and bent into thirds to fit through my mailbox :)

Nice work on the cover man, looks tops.

Tops.

I got mine on Monday, which isn't too bad really, it has been later I guess, but still, I don't live that far out of the city :(

It's now Friday, and still no sign of it.

Technically they are special offers, and therefore - at least this is my understanding - we don't list those who receive it. Especially when that could mean a list of hundreds of names in some circumstances!

Am I the only one who still hasn't received #89 yet? Another issue mysteriously missing in the post, again.

I'm not overly happy that I have to keep going to the newsagent to buy my Atomic mag. This means I've had to purchase the last two issues, twice!

Even my subs from the UK & US manage to get here, in one piece & on time...

Mine is incredibly variable. Sometimes I get it a couple of days before it goes on sale, other times it will be a week afterwards.

Sometimes I'll get a run of it being on time, then I'll get a run of it being late. I've had a few not arrive at all, but that hasn't happened in a while.

Up near Newy here. :)

Generally I'll get mine betwen the Tuesday and Thursday of the week after it goes on sale in news agents (and I live in Brisbane). Looking at the forums there seems to be a reasonable amount of people that get it Friday the week before it comes out to news agents but it would be very rare for me to get it the same week it is out at the news agents. As annoying as it is I've become used to it as it has been happening since about issue 3 when I first subscribed.

It would be nice to get it sooner but the the content of the mag (and cost savings) make it well worth the wait.

I may as well weigh in here as I am obviously heavily interested in this subject; albeit intermittently forum wise...work keeps getting in the way, damned Hollingworth!

It appears quite a few people get their magazine later than the on sale date (second Wednesday of every month). Although this does not seem to be a widespread issue - my inbox would melt if 'twere.

What happens in Chaos Lady's case seem to be the norm. All good for a couple of years, then crappola. I hate to say it but in situations like that, there is not a lot we can do. I had this discussion with the good people at Australia Monopoly...I mean auspost recently. Even their service level agreement states that a delivery times are indicative only. Wierdly, there seems to be a pocket in SE QLD that is always late. There are many jokes that could be made about that, but i'll refrain for now and just say it's not right.

What we would like is to make sure that Atomic remains the greatest tech mag in the galaxy and for that we have awesome editorial staff, but we really want to look after our subscribers so you now get those sexy front covers *special* and we'd like for you to get your issues BEFORE they're in the shops. It is a goal of mine to make it happen and we are working on some ideas so please in the meantime
a. don't hate us
b. email subscriptions@atomicmpc.com.au when you do have an issue and we'll get on it asap.
you may even get a personal reply from moi.

sweet. bed times now.

Back in the day Ben said that getting the magazine before it was out at the newsagency was never a guarantee. Subscriptions meant that: you got the magazine cheaper; it was delivered to your house/PO box.

for years, my copy has been arriving about a week after it's available for sale... except for this month. mine actually arrived today, which was a bit surprising.

doesn't really bother me when it arrives though. it always get here eventually. i'm located inner metropolitan melbourne :)

Ok, I got #90 in yesterday's mail, I'm N/S Brisbane.

and since I re-subbed they changed my delivery address.

I wish you had an option for delivery address, as my mailbox is incompatible with AtomicMPC. My parent's have a large and spacious mailbox.

I hope it's been fixed up by emailing now though.

Mine returned to being later than the newsstand, and it's still addressed to "Lollies McPhee"?
