2008 is drawing to a close so it's time to wish every Drobe reader a merry Christmas and we hope you all have a happy new year. Thanks for dropping by every day to check out the latest RISC OS news and sticking with the site when we went silent for several months.

Thanks must go to everyone who has contributed to Drobe in 2008, with special thanks to Martin Hansen, Garry Taylor, Chris Wraight, Andrew Weston, Jon Robinson, Peter Howkins, Paul Stewart and James Shaw, plus Ian Hawkins for the hosting and the denizens of #notsurf for their help, advice and lols.

Finally, this year's top 10 articles, in terms of pages viewed, are:

Thanks also from the 'deep south' of WA - you keep us in touch with events that are so far away from us.
