  • On 15 June 2016 we launched this new web site, which currently hosts 10,811 independent, high quality, in-depth reviews / techniques / interviews / tutorial articles  — plus news and SOS Forum posts.
  • We are working hard to get the remaining issues converted into the new site format but this can only be done in main magazine/website production 'downtime' and it is a long-winded, convoluted process.

Past issues are generally being added one edition at a time to this SOS site, in reverse order, until we get back to January 1994 — although we have recently been adding individual articles and still-relevant/useful series from older issues, when requested.

Thanks go to a wonderful non-profit organisation called, who run their Wayback Machine service that catalogues billions of web pages from all types of web sites. This provides snapshots of the full SOS legacy site, as it used to be — meaning SOS articles not yet on our own site can still be found in Wayback's extensive web archived pages.
