    AMIGA meditations is back! 

    A1000 Masthead

    Yes, the title of this blog, which for a time was changed to Stuart Williams’ Micro Musings, is reverting to its original Commodore Amiga related focus, effective immediately!

    This is because, after a long period of illness and family issues, I have recently begun work at long last on my new Amiga User International magazine tribute website, and now seems just the right time to tie this blog in with the new project.

    My non-Amiga work will still feature here, of course (and I will continue to write elsewhere on other topics such as 8 bit adventure gaming) but in a month or two the URL of this blog will revert to the original amigameditations.wordpress.com, which has always been the underlying link.

    Watch this space for more news, and more content, coming soon.

    Here’s to a busier, and hopefully happier, New Year!

    Stuart Williams’ scribblings and ST Update – 30 Years After 

    Would you believe it, I’ve been writing, getting published – and getting paid for it – for thirty years this year?

    The first ever commercial magazine to publish my work was ST Update, a British home computer magazine dedicated to the Atari ST and published by Sunshine Publications in London. Sadly, ST Update is long gone and little known these days, at least as far as online sources is concerned.

    But, as luck would have it, ST Update itself is also thirty years old – this month! So I decided to mark the anniversary of the magazine’s first issue by writing about it, and making a copy of the pilot issue available to download online, through the pages of Retro Computing News. I’ve even made contact with the original advertising manager of the magazine, Jon Beales, who has been very helpful with the article.

    The article now online is part one of an exclusive two-part feature with the story of ST Update magazine’s inception ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’ – plus a very special download to celebrate the 30th birthday of ST Update. Please go check it out via the link below!
