Is Nuts and Volts dead ?

Post by AlcidePir2 » Wed May 01, 2019 8:24 pm

I have been a subscriber of N&V for several years.
It was then monthly.
Then suddenly last year,
We waited and waited for the April issue and finally N&V appeared in May saying that they
Became bi-monthly.
Now, the March/April issue is overdue.

Will it ever appear ?

Is N&V dead ?

Nuts & Volts is most certainly not dead. In fact March/April is at the printer right now.

To be honest, we have had quite a few setbacks during the last few issues and due to having such a small staff, it has taken a bit longer than expected to get things back on track. The magazine business has changed dramatically in recent years which is forcing publishers to find a balance between print and digital means. Going bi-monthly is allowing us more time to dial in all the different channels we offer to receive content. We are working diligently to provide our loyal subscribers the great content we've strived to produce for 40+ years.

We truly appreciate everyone's patience and support in these recent months.

Sounds more like the "Thousand Cuts" too me. :sad:

I to have seen the Mag go from a 11 x 8 inch 20-30 page plain paper booklet.
To a 14 X 18 inch glossy cover 100+ page Mag.
Then back down to a 11 x 8 inch glossy 100- page Mag.

It's hard to get the younger generation interested in electronics,
since most everything is designed not to be repaired easily. :(

Yeah, there are some that are hacking phones, and making AP's for them.
But you have to spend a couple hundred dollars for the equipment & supplies to do it. :(

Some years back, N&V did a "Setup a Work Bench for about $100 challenge".
Pretty much doubt any one could do it now, by just buying new equipment. :sad:

I remember when the magazine was printed on like newspaper material, i liked it way better than the glossy paper..Glossy paper is so much harder for me to read, because it catches all the light.

I like my magazines carved on clay tablets.

It has been more then 10 days since you said it is at the printer.
Are you actually manually carving the matrix ?
