Журнал основан в 1981 году Расселом Сайпом. Изначально выходил каждые два месяца, объём ранних выпусков составлял 40-50 страниц. В 1986 году периодичность выпуска журнала была увеличена до девяти раз в год. Начиная с 1991 года объём журнала существенно увеличился, достигнув 196 страниц в юбилейном сотом номере, вышедшем в ноябре 1992 года. В 1993 году Сайп продал журнал компании Ziff Davis, но оставался его издателем до 1995 года. В декабре 1997 года объём журнала достиг 500 страниц.
