I have here what is probably my last issue of "Dr. Dobb's Journal". I've been a continuous subscriber since 1986 (with a two year hiatus of 1989 and 1990), but the usefulness factor and interest factor have just gone into the toilet. So I'm letting my sub lapse.

Yet another magazine who failed to survive the Microsoft'ing, Internet'ing, and mainstreaming of the software developer world.

What's sad is there really is an open niche for a quirky little codehacker's magazine, full of neat little tricks, useful little hacks, programmer's humor, interesting little bits of code, and squirrelly odd and neat interfaces.

Doctor Dobb's Journal of Computer Calisthenics and Orthodontia: Running Light without Overbyte used to be that magazine. CMP UBM DDJ, is not.

I'm already a subscriber to Make.

And while I love it, it's more for the "home fabricator, with embedded software" folks.
