The Lamp

By the time editor Ryan Suenaga published the final issue of GEnieLamp Apple II in October of 1997, most of the former RoundTable members had already migrated to the free, web-based forums of Delphi, which were still relatively new.  It didn’t take Suenaga long to launch a new forum newsletter and the first issue of The Lamp was available in January, 1998.

The Lamp, which also included coverage of the communities on Syndicomm and later, A2Central, ran for 115 issues, the final hitting the digital bookshelves in August 2007.
