Valentine Sinitsyn, the main man at Linux Format Russia, recently flew in to LXF Towers to
sample the local beer exchange ideas and do some sightseeing, and left me with one particularly memorable quote about how long LXF Russia subscribers have to wait for their issues: "our postal service is a bit like the UDP protocol." And you Australians thought you had it bad when waiting for your copies to arrive!
Our Italian and Greek licensees were also there, but I was too busy trying to get some decent beer from the bar. Why secluded locations in countryside England insist on serving beer in ice-cold bottles is beyond me...
