review: Just a single file and 50 blocks, but this very first edition of
Relax manages to cram in quite a bit of info anyway. In addition to the
usual news, rumours and charts, there is also an interview with Ross/
Sphinx, and little else. They do promise more for the next issue, so let's

SOMEONE in afl (according to text in the memory). There doesn't seem to be
ANY credits in the mag, apart from the names of the two editors. Oh well,
perhaps they did it all then :) The logo is signed "Tpa".

They do mention the mag will be released on the third saturday of every
