   If someone wants to reupload the archive with a more accurate name then please go ahead.

Somebody had to do it Wink

Actually, I had DL'd issue 91 to grab the MacFormat issues database, hoping to get more info on issue 90's CD[s]?. But MF hadn't updated the database since issue 88 (its the same as what already on 90) and it didn't help...

So I thought I may as well correct the archive name and re-up it.

Yep, I'm in the southern hemisphere too (it takes about three months for the magazines to get here).

You're probably right. It is most likely a last minute change after the CD had already been produced, but before the magazine was printed. It's unlikely (although possible) they'd print two versions of the magazine - one with CD2's content for the UK and one without for elsewhere.

@WhosIt.There: I'm in the antipodes. My cover CD has the same "90a" in the position you've described (its in small print that I hadn't looked closely enough at to see before). In most MacFormat Mags I'd purchased, if there was a UK only 2nd CD distribution it would be mentioned in the mag, but I don't see that with this issue.

I love a mystery Wink

Its possible that close to issue 90's production deadline, MacFormat was unable to release a 2 CD issue.

That's certainly a possibility. I don't know where you are, but another option is that the second CD contained something they only had UK rights to distribute, so issues shipped elsewhere for sale only had one CD.

For my CD, the "MF/90a/05/00" is printed on the CD insert's spine in the small right-hand white box, the bottom-left-hand corner of the CD cover insert, and in a small "clear" / silver box at the bottom of the CD itself.

Must be a "rare" version ... woo-hoo!! eBay here I come. Wink

Any volunteers? Wink Seriously tho', I do wish there was some way to do this in Edit Mode, in-situ.

@WhosIt.There: Its possible that close to issue 90's production deadline, MacFormat was unable to release a 2 CD issue. If you look at the 2nd screenshot which shows the front cover of issue 90, it has 2 CD's mentioned on it. My copy of the mag does not have the 2 CD graphic printed on it, it also has moved the Handspring Visor graphic to the right and is smaller in size. Unlike your ROM, my copy of the ROM does not have the "a" attached to it's name. I assume yours was an earlier print run.

-->'m not sure where "Aug" comes from<---

The archive name was the one that soudesune gave it when it was passed on to me. The disc is just called MacFormat 91. If someone wants to reupload the archive with a more accurate name then please go ahead.

Macformat 90 is May 2000 and Macformat 91 is June 2000. I'm not sure where "Aug" comes from, although I haven't checked the physcial name of the disc.

For some reason my CD for the May 200 issue (with 4th Dimension 6.0 on it) says "90a" on the disc and the box insert, but a quick check of the magazine doesn't mention there being two cover CD for that issue (as there sometimes were).

Alas, I have no more of these to upload. I don't even have the April disc that is shown in the picture. I am also a bit unsure of the month that volume 91 appeared in. Since the picture shows that the April edition is Vol. 89 maybe 91 should be June?
