    I'm having difficulty finding a forum for this one. So I'm giving it maximum exposure. The worktime skive forum :)

    My IT tech gave me a magazine today and it prompted me thinking; my job has nothing to do with IT as a whole, and I find it difficult to keep up to date with things without forking out £6.50 every time for a PC magazine that contains 70% adds. I've been giving Networking Magazine - free to industry subscribers. Are there any magazines that you guys regularly read, and could recommend to any drifters from the hive of the IT industry?

    I used to subscribe to PC PRO each month, but found that I simply couldn't find the time to sit down and read it.

    These days all I subscribe to is The Register and get a daily email of the latest news and goings on in the world of IT.

    I find that this way I can see whats new,and if something grabs my attention I can look into it further.

    Best of all it's FREE to subscribe.

    :)

    Subscribe to PCPro myself, have done for a few years, and have to thank it for much of my IT knowledge that isn't self-taught.
    Don't always find time to read it anymore like simon.

    I do check the register quite a lot, although I tend to find myself in the Odds & Sods section more and more often.

    Newsnow.co.uk's IT section can be good for a quick skim.

    PC Pro is my favourite "pay for" mag too, I also get computing, computer weekly and server management. There used to be another one called IT week, dunno if it's still going.
