So who's going to turn this into a user friendly off-the-shelf product without it turning into a certain unfinished ARM9-powered blue box?

Yes, I know. This comments system is not relly meant for this. But as it's the first issue, I'm posting it here anyway! I'm sure one or two of you will have some comments to make.

Tbh, I don't mind ppl posting announcements of new stuff here as long as it doesn't flood the board or get too tenuous. Special offers and price lists are a bit yawn. And it means ppl get to comment on what they really think of your products ;)

OMG! What will we do without RISC OS's premiere news outlet, and only one with an attention to detail?!?!

I guess read Archive or arcsite.de or iconbar.com, if takes on regular news coverage; or people can post news on here.

We'll continue all our infighting and "my contract is bigger than yours" type threads on here, the new Drobe Message board!

It wouldn't be RISC OS without that, Paul.

OK - welcome to the Drobe message board! This is based on the same software that provided the article comments systembefore it was switched off and works in the same way.

You'll need to log in to post to the board. You can link to stuff, post news, talk about RISC OS, Acorn, perhaps technology in general. I don't really mind provided it doesn't cause me to lose any sleep.

It's a pretty straight forward message board. Threads are ordered by their last post - so old threads can be resurrected if someone posts something new in them. I should really add a search engine to it, I guess..

Have fun. Any questions, mail me or post in this thread.
