I received yesterday what is the last of New Architect (aka Web Techniques). I really did think that the magazine went downhill precipitously when they Changed the name and the format. Lincoln's articles were about the only good thing on a regular basis and I really did miss merlyn's stuff.
I really shouldn't bitch though because I didn't pay for it. I would have paid for Web Techniques but not NA. Of course there are a lot of magazines I receive that I don't pay for: Software Developer, InfoWorld, eWeek, InternetWorld, ad nauseam. I only receive them because I don't pay for them. I could just as easily read the website instead.
Heck, I'm even dumping two magazines that I've paid for: Dr. Dobb's and SysAdmin. SysAdmin wasn't all that useful and Dr. Dobb's was good but I didn't want to continue to get it.
I think two of the best tech publications I read are TPJ and TPR. I really would like to receive dead tree versions of those but I'll be patient.
