The scanned issues are making a come back! Thanks to James who is paying for a server OUT OF HIS OWN pocket. They are not all online at the moment so bare with us for a few weeks until we get them all sorted out.

All the issues on CD are coming out soon and of course there is the printed issue 107 you can order. Both this items will be available at Back In Time, as well as t-shirts hopefully!

27 - January 2002
One more scanned issue online. Issue 89 this time. The ETA for the new Zzap 107 is 15th February!!

30 - December 2001
Here's a few scanned issues for the New Year. 86, 87 and 88. Happy New Year!

13 - December 2001
Full scans of issues 84 and 85 are online. My friend just got a months access to an ADSL line so expect issues to come thick and fast over the next couple of weeks.

8 - December 2001
Another full scan online, of issue 83.

Here's a few uploaded corrections for the scanned issues, thanks to Jules for notifying us of these!
issue 74, p50 and p51 were the same, the correct p50 has now been uploaded
issue 48, p2 and p3 were the same, the correct p3 has now been uploaded
issue 9, added the poster that came with the issue, called p173 and p174 now
2 - December 2001
Just uploaded issue 82. Enjoy.

15 - November 2001
You may realised that the scanned issues have been offline for a few days. This is because some idiot decided to download all 2Gb of the issues in one go! and thus the bandwidth usage was brought to the attention of the company that hosts the issues.
If you decide you want to download all the issues (even although I'll be putting out Cd's of them soon), PLEASE only download one or two a day max!

The scans should be online and working again. I am also now in the process of uploading new issues. Hopefully this event won't happen again because if it does I'll have to write some script to stop website grabber programs from working, which would be a pain for all. Anyway, it appears we are back in business. Thanks James!

For those of you that haven't heard, there will be a new Zzap issue 107 out in the new year, editted by Gordon Houghton. It will be a one off, only available online (so don't go running down to your newsagent looking for it) but will be full of new material currently been writing by Zzap lovers around the world. You can find more info about it on Lee's Peek and Poke Page.

Just uploaded issue 81. Enjoy.

9 - June 2001
This is the last big update of scanned issues until the end of the summer. But I think this lot should keep you going! I finished in work yesterday but I've spent the last 6 hours in here uploading these files on a Saturday, so you'd better enjoy! :-)

The issues are 61, 67, 69,70, 71,72, 73,74, 75,76, 77,78, 79 and 80. 14 issues in all!

I also fixed issue 68 p65 and p68. I think Mort deserves a big round of applause for all his work so far.
6 - June 2001
This is the biggest update ever! Another 8 issues have been added to the full scans! These issues contain some great reviews and features, including a review of the rare game Murder in issue 65 (I think).

I've gotta try and get all these issues up before I go traveling and don't have high banwidth Internet access in a work place anymore. So that's why 32, 33, 34 and 35 are available today! That lot alsoincludes another great Christmas issue. Enjoy!
