And Georg's Brave GNU World (GNU monthly column simultaneously published
in about 10 different languages worldwide)
And (GNU) Linux (& HURD) Magazine France do developer articles that they
would probably allow to be translated & used...
I think there is a market for a second magazine in Britain, if you felt
the Irish market weren't big enough, and felt like going head-to-head
(or even a bit techier) than Linux Format.
