    There I was - out shopping today & while waiting near a supermarket news-stand for the other half - I noticed one of my regular computer magazines [MicroMart issue1078] had a new issue out - So I brought it

    Got Home and stuck it one side to read later when there's not much on TV

    The day passed & just after Tea, I started reading it...... Imagine my surprise as when I get to the 'Ask Jason' section, I see my [real] name @ the bottom of a letter
    Thinking it's just a name coincidence - I started reading the letter above......

    GASP!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    - it's a letter of advise I'd sent them 3 weeks ago which I totally forgot all about

    Considering that this magazine has a Circulation of ~25,000/week - there's a possibility that 25,000 (or more) may see my name in print [​IMG]

    I was once referred to as 'a friend of mine' in a letter to the Official UK PlayStation Magazine back in the nineties. It's not quite the same, I know.

    I once had my Mario Kart emblem (and my name) featured in a Nintendo Power
