I've been a dedicated reader of DDH since the early 1990's. I started collecting the magazines around 1995 and most are in excellent condition. Often, when waiting for a new issue to arrive and needing a "fix", I'll get an old one out of the cupboard and give it a read. Suprisingly, I'll usually come accross articles that I had forgotten, or I'll read something that I can now relate to. Most often, the articles are as relevant today as they were 10+ years ago. Sometimes what I really find interesting are the ads; some products died a quick (and necessary) death, while other products are still going strong. I plan to buy the CD with all the early issues so that I see what I missed back in the 70's and 80's.
