We pretty much got most the UK and US Magazines here in NZ back in the 80's. (I have over 400 here in boxes). Big K, C&VG, Sinclair User, Your Sinclair, Home computing weekly, Crash, Zzap, Your Computer (the UK one - had loads of Machine code listings which is why I would buy it), Byte, Personal Computing Today, etc, etc...
I'd buy them 90% of the time for the game listings to type in. Pretty much that's what most magazines were for me - a source of software.
These were imported by Gordon and Gotch, and obviously by surface since we were pretty much always 3 months behind in every magazine.
I agree that a section dedicated to old magazines is a must have for any vintage computing resource. Some other great magazine archives:ftp://ftp.worldofspectrum.org/pub/sinclair/magazines/https://archive.org/details/computermagazineshttp://www.atarimagazines.com/
That said, nothings better then the real thing as I'm sure you'll agree!
Now I feel like I need to go downstairs and read a few... But I have work to do, so need to avoid distractions! lol!
