Due to the propensity of computer journalists for using pseudonyms, several of the names credited below are not the real names of the authors. Apart from obvious ones like Guttersnipe and SQ Factor, others such as Sue Denham ('pseu-donym'), Terry Bulfib ('terrible fib') and Penny Page ('pen a page') were also fictional (mostly used by Roger Munford). Also, some featured articles were not credited with an author in the magazine, so they must remain forever unsung.
