Ok, so I got myself a subscription to Maximum PC. When I signed it up online, I thought I'll get the CD version but I ended up with the non-CD version. (talk about stuffs I missed.)

So I gave MPC a call and send them $10 buck for my remaining 10 issues.

When I got the September issue, No CD.

So I gave them a call again, and the nice lady told me that i'll get it the next issue. Now there should be a remaining of $1, and I asked about it, and the nice lady told me that there is a holiday issue (hmm, I have never heard of it).

Now, is there really such thing?

I just wanted to know.

It's usually filled with articles, how-tos and reviews from previous issues.

Nope!

You're thinking of our special issues, which were quarterly but are now six times a year. Those are themed issues with, as you say, articles, how-tos, and reviews from previous issues. They marketed toward nonsubscribers, and they're not included in the subscription.

The regular magazine, the one you get with your subscription, is published 13 times per year. January-December, followed by Holiday, followed by January again.

Why they sell 12- and 24-month subscriptions of a magazine that comes out 13 times a year, I have no idea. I just work here. :P
