Does anyone have any old issues for sale or know where you can buy the old

You're invited to run with the fastest crowd in computer graphics: The
animators, artists and video producers using Digital Equipment Corp.'s
Alpha workstations, the world's fastest desktop computers.
Hello! I'm Dave Madden, editorial coordinator for ALPHA Visual FX
-Applications for 3D Graphics and Video Effects., a new quarterly magazine
focusing on Alpha machines running the Windows NT operating system. Our
premiere edition will be launched at the National Association of
Broadcasters convention April 15-18 in Las Vegas.
Here at AMG Media, Inc., publisher of the highly successful Video Toaster
User and LIGHTWAVE PRO magazines, we see the Alpha poised for explosive
growth in the computer graphics market. With unrivaled RISC processing
power at a remarkably reasonable price, the Alpha will likely lead the
pack in price-performance into the next millenium.
The Alpha's power has not gone unnoticed among makers of high-end 3D
modeling, rendering and animation software, who are porting their products
to Windows NT, including versions that will run in native mode on Alpha
More importantly, perhaps, is the the arrival of new emulation software,
FX!32, that allows Alpha users to run almost any 32-bit program made for
Windows 95 or Windows NT. Newcomers to the Alpha not only won't have to
abandon their existing software, but can look forward to better (faster)
performance, even with emulation.
You can catch the Alpha wave at Alpha Visual FX. We'll be offering the
latest news on software and hardware, tips and tutorials on animation and
video effects, and interviews with the people who make the magic. We want
you to be a part of the process by providing us with product information.
Our deadlines are extremely tight for this inaugural issue and we would
appreciate receiving your submissions as soon as possible. Please e-mail
send it by FedEx to our mailing address.
We would welcome accompanying art; color slides or graphic files in the
TIF and JPG format are acceptable.
