The Complete AP2
First there was AP2. Then there was another one of it. Now there is the last one. Of that one.
YOUR AP2 QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Q. Are you sure this is The Complete AP2?
A. Yes. There'll be no more, ever. Sorry. (Except for exasperatedly fixing the flapping links, which we have now done. You'll have to download the Words bit of the offline archive again though. Sorry about that.)
Q. Isn't there rather a lot of it? I hate having to read things.
Yes, sorry about that. You might want to put aside half an hour or something to read it properly; there are over 20 pages and, incredibly, more than five thousand words. Say 45 minutes to be on the safe side. (There's an offline version available.) Sorry.
Q. Couldn't you make it look better? I hate the layout.
Sorry. AP2's been converted to stylesheets, so you can indeed change how it looks.
Q. No, I mean I hate the split-screen effects. Why not put it on a single page?
A. Sorry, sorry, sorry. As it happens, AP2 was planned from the earliest beginning to look exactly as it does, obviously because we're rubbish, so the split screens are integral to the mag's spirally tangential nature. But just to prove all those people correct who complained there was no conceptual reason we couldn't have had it as one scrolling page, we've converted AP2 to a single page. For technical reasons we had to convert a slightly earlier version which wasn't quite finished, which means you'll have to do a little bit of work yourself (sorry about that), but it's all there. Sorry for doubting you. Sorry.
Q. Couldn't you just have put it on a wiki or something? I hate not being able to correct things.
A. We didn't think of that, despite the fact AP2 pre-dates the invention of wikis which we anyway hate. Sorry. Don't know what came over us, imagining that allowing anybody anywhere to change any bit of AP2 they felt like would be a bad idea (although we did experiment with CU Amiga). We'd announce some kind of permission to convert AP2 to a wiki, but we're not going to, ever. (See also the credits page.) Sorry.
Q. Speaking of CU Amiga, what happened with that court case?
A. We never did mention did that, did we? Sorry.
Q. Isn't there more than slightly too much J Nash? I hate J Nash.
A. Yes, sorry about that; he keeps appearing and typing things in for some reason best known to himself. (Bah - J Nash.) Sorry, there he goes again. (Bah 2 - J Nash.) Sorry.
Q. Why did you bother making AP2 anyway? I hated AMIGA POWER because you lied all the time about games and were responsible for killing the computer. CU Amiga / Amiga Format / Amiga Action / The One / Amiga Concept / Amiga User International were all superior mags for real men with real Amigas.
A. We hope you die in a big chemical fire.
