Still waiting to International mail service to open back up from USA to Australia to send the magazines we talked about. I thought it would be opened back up by now.
Me too, given that we have international flights coming and going since December. Got a package the other day from the UK and it arrived quite quickly. Appreciate your support and the offer of some of the missing issues though. I still have some issues to process so I can keep going with scanning. Hopefully, postage from USA starts again soon.

Cool, I didn't know that sample issue existed. Even has a review of Strider II which was one of my dark horse favorites back in the day. Thanks again!

I had a previous scan of the ST Action Sampler which came in at 6MB so you can guess the quality of the scans inside it :)

Yup. Thanks!

These are really cool. I especially like the adverts for the extras, and such.
The joysticks, mice, and exotic (to me) things like the desk topper, and replacement cases, keyboard domes, etc later on.

I did try saving the sampler as a reduce size PDF but it wrecked the images inside it so I left this as a text version without reducing the size. I guess the fact that this was 1/4 the physical size of the normal issues meant that further optimization on the PDF just would not work.

Always great to see a new issue scanned. Thanks.

I wonder if shipping from USA to AUS is back up and running so I can send the other issues?

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for this. I'm on it and will read them all.

ST Action no. 22 was my first ever copy, (Think it was the first one after xmas for me and my brand spanking new 1040STFM and I've just downloaded it and it brings back so many memories). ST Action, ST User and Zero were my go tos in the day (ST Format is a given, Think I got ST format 7 or 8 and ST Action 22 at the same time). Once again thank you so much for the work you have put in.
Own: Wood grain 2600, Atari 800, 520STFM (1MB), 1040STE (4MB), TT, Falcon 030, Atari Lynx (Both the first one with the crap paint and the v2), Jaguar and too many x680x0 Macs to list, oh and also an Amiga 1200 (Boo!)
My first Mac was Spectre GCR on a 1040STFM with an SM124 and 30MB third party HDD :D

As in the PM sent, I do not believe postage between USA and AUS has re-commenced yet.

I have been lucky enough to buy a few more issues over the last few months and I am now only missing issues 6, 45, 54, and 57 from my collection of ST Action to complete the set and eventually also the scanned copies shared. I know you had issue 54 in the ones you are looking to get posted so would still be keen to get this issue at some point when post re-commences again.

Glad, I allowed you to revisit the good times of getting your new Atari. I am sure these issues are allowing a few people to travel back in time by reading them. :)

Nice, good to hear you are almost done acquiring the remaining issues. Yes, if the shipping ever gets going again and you still need #54 then I'll be glad to send it over.

Yes, the link under the cover art image is not working, but if you click on the cover itself, it will work.

Thanks for the new scan!
