Could be 3 months, could be a month. Unfortunately it depends on when the book printer gets you into the list. I wish I could give you more info :(

If you look like your avatar, I'm sure there are about two dozen members who would personally deliver the mag to your front door. I'm assuming, of course, it's newbiesteve which is short for "stevie". If you look like your avatar and you are of the male gender, then the number of members who would hand deliver the mag to you drops to about ten.

Maximum PC is the best computer mag out there I think.
Kudos to the Maximum PC gang!

My first issue came to the office 5 weeks after I sent in the subscription card, but I got my home issue in 6 weeks. The funny thing is that I filled out that "1 for you and 1 for a friend" card. I heard doing it online is much quicker.

I live in Canada, and applied online and got my first issue in a little over 2 months I think. Of course, i would think that it would take less time in the U.S.

Dude, do you think that, maybe, it might have something to do with the fact that you live in Hurricane land? Might your mail be a bit screwed up because of the weather problems? Just a thought.

why don't you call them up? how long has they charge to your check or credit card? maybe the magazine editor used your subscription form as scratch paper or toilet paper. those guys are kinda nutty.

it has more to do with what the Editor Himself said in an earlier post to this thread. Per the website, I should get my first mag in about 2 weeks.
