Right. That was Wayne Green's empire. I worked there as well -- Kilobaud,
80 Micro, 73, etc. He lost Byte to his ex-wife Virginia, however (which is
why his license plate displayed the otherwise enigmatic "FUVA").
The Color Computer Magazine and others were the editorial refugees from
Wayne's erratic behavior who founded new publications, including me and
Debra Marshall, who was my editor years after TCCM and the rest of the rags
in Camden, Maine, were eaten and killed deliberately by Ziff-Davis.
I started UnderColor, which failed after 11 issues, as a result of the
Ziff-Davis destruction of our work.
