Microsoft have released a 'flash removal update' to take Adobe Flash permanently off W10 computers and block its reinstallation.

The update is optional but is being widely promoted by some tech websites.

Please be aware that if you run this it will stop the older issues in the archive from working, and the only way to restore it would be to roll back the W10 update and reinstall Flash.

It's not clear if it would block third party flash players.

Obviously it's your decision whether you want to use the update or not, but I thought I should make people aware.

maybe as it is likely most MS users will accept it possibly forced by a later update, then MyTimeMedia needs to look seriously into selling a DVD as their only USP over pocketmags is this archive

Though anyone taking out a new sub direct with Pocketmags would still miss out on about 2yrs of ME/MEW as the HTML5 ones would still be available in the archive and there is the odd bit of "subscriber only" content too.

Actually judging by the profusion of 'from the archive' in the last few issues I guess that Neil has decided to mine the spoilheap - rather like "Camm's Comic" of the the 1950s or earlier
