Maximum PC has always been my favorite mag.
Too bad is about the size of a pamphlet lately.
How small are going to make it? Business card size maybe?
I know you have the cd, but I want CONTENT!
13 bucks Canadian is a lot of money to fork over for what you have been printing lately. I hope maybe you're just lazy because its summer and the thick mag I anxiously await every month will return to something I cant finish in one visit to the washroom.

bad economy? they usually only have big ussues on holidays like xmas. and if their ads do not provide enough profit, it's juz impossible to make a magazine thick. so next time when some website asks u where u found them. be sure to mention Maximum PC.

Actually the number of pages of editorial content has remained consistent for a few years now. Your ability to speed read must have increased.

Hmmm, I haven't noticed any decrease in content or size. Then again, maybe your prescription of Viagra has run out and everything seems smaller to you now..who knows..

tip: Spend less time in the bathroom

tip #2: call the doc and get your scripts refilled ;)

I have all the issues lined up on a bookshelf, from Boot 01 through the current issue, and can say the magazine has remained exactly the same size through the duration of its run.

That is, it has remained roughly 8.5 inches by 11 inches, not the standard phamplet size you've quoted, and certainly not the business card dimensions you've suggested either.

Now, if you had meant size of the magazine as in thickness or page count, some suitable comparisons you could have used would have been "now it's about as thin as Bush's excuses to go to war" or "As thin as the line I usually walk between smug bastard and all-out asshole."

Of course, you'd still be wrong, but you'd at least make a little more sense.
