You're not the only one The oly thing I tolerate stitched into the magazine is the "cover" DVD/CD - and even that gets removed before I start reading.

Oh, you have them in the Netherlands too, do you? It's only just starting here, and I take only one magazine that's doing it.

One Dutch PC mag I have a subscription for doesn't do CDs, another includes them "on" the cover in the plastic mailing envelope.

But I often buy magazines in bookstores: Most of the magazines I have around are English-language, US or UK; occasionally a German one, too (more if I happen to be in Germany, there are several very good ones). Now I'm fairly sure some German mags stich them inside, but I'm positive about two UK ones - I happen to have them sit behind me: .net magazine (really need to read that one!) and PCPlus.

So I don't really know if Dutch magazines do that - but I regularly tear them out because I regularly buy magazines that have them. Frankly, I never paid attention to which one does it how......

I think stitching them in is good method though: I'm sure it reduces theft!

Marjolein:

and PCPlus

That's the magazine I was referring to. It's published by Fortune, of which I have a vague idea that it has Dutch connexions.

Excellent magazine, as are their DVDs - I have quite a collection; always useful software for free.

But I'm not aware of any "Dutch connection" - it says here:

Main office seems to be in Bath.

Fortune Magazine? There is certainly an American magazine of that name, sort of right-wing, definitely pro-business. Is that what you mean? No Dutch connection that I know of (except that it is published near New Amsterdam!).

No? Well my impression was a very vague. But although PCPlus has its offices in Bath, the company publishes umpteen magazines and has its HQ elsewhere. The trouble is that many companies have 'Fortune' in their name.

As much of PCPlus is about programming, it mostly goes over my head these days.

KT:

Fortune Magazine?

Oh no: no connexion, at least as far as I know. We have all heard of that Fortune.
