RISC OS Sometime unrest growsPublished: 14th Oct 2007, 23:35:49 | Permalink | Printable
Readers praying for RISC OS Anytime Now [Updated]Media watch - Bi-monthly magazine RISC OS Now was branded RISC OS Sometime this week by its readers, who have received two issues in a year-long subscription.
Having each forked out 25 quid for a six-issue subscription this time last year, some of the magazine's readers are fed up of waiting for copies and explanations for the delays to arrive.
Subscriber Michael Chappell said no one from RISC OS Now't had dropped him an email to give him a progress update.
He commented: "I'm still none the wiser as to when the next issue will be out. It's coming up to a year soon since it was released and I've only had a couple of issues. Perhaps, it should be RISC OS Sometime."
He added: "It does nothing for the integrity of the Acorn community if we can't even get a hobbyist magazine out on a regular basis and I, for one, will not be renewing my subscription."
Editor Louie Smith, pictured, was unavailable for comment. Last month, she said the RISC OS printing system was unable to meet demands of modern printer firms. She said this had lead to delays in getting her magazine printed but subscribers will, eventually, receive their six issues.

The magazine's webmaster Paul Vigay has said RISC OS Now should be back on schedule after solving problems with PostScript generation.
