Drobe scales down for next few weeksBy Chris Williams. Published: 25th May 2003, 20:35:04 | Permalink | Printable
We'll be right backOver the next two to three weeks, the drobe.co.uk editors will be engaged with pressing academic responsibilities and other work (but RISC OS related, naturally). So as a little warning, during this time, Drobe Launchpad sadly won't be as regularly updated as you've come to expect. We intend to resume normal operations in time for the June Big Ben RISC OS show. The bottom line is, you'll have to look for your daily sarcasm dose elsewhere, for a short while.
However, we consider all article submissions and if you think we've missed some news, please drop us a story.
Also, to keep things running smoothly, we've prepared a handy press release template optimised for any RISC OS developers, websites, companies or organisations planning on announcing something and therefore want to quickly grab our attention. Most RISC OS companies get press releases just right, although if in doubt - get the template out, fill in the obvious blanks and mail it off. Here it is:
