"Lone News" has been named that way because of two reasons: first, Luca has created it all alone, coded the program, drew PETSCII logos charset and bitmaps, composed the tunes and wrote all the articles by himself; second, the magazine has born in the worst time for the Plus/4 scene, during the period when the releases ratio per years reached the lowest and almost everybody did loose interest, away from the retro fans wave which would come in the '00 era.
The code itself has been put together when the author had very little knowledge about assembly, and this is clearly evident in the overall roughness of the way the magazine runs. Nonetheless, it has never been changed along the years, apart of including the SIDcard support from issue 11.
