Nnnngggghh.... Don't remind me.
PC Plus magazine used to be pretty good, then when the current editor took
over, he immediately tore up everything the last guy did. The programming
stuff has been near enough removed, replaced with "Remove spyware with
insert-name-of-expensive-crapware-here" and "Casemodding for ID-ten-Ts"...

Then again.. most PC rags are crap anyway these days.
