On RISC OS Christmas roadshow details finalised:

It's been said before and I'm sure it'll be said again, but why don't ROL put this info on their own website?! That might be a start in promoting these events. I think it's great that they're organising this but people need to know they're happening.

On FileNuke app in wet fizzle claim:

From what I'm reading here, though, is wiping a disk's free space enough? Could the file you want to wipe have not previously been stored where a different file now is? If it requires an area of the disk to be overwritten multiple times before the data is irretrievable then the file could still be found. Or have I got things completely wrong? :-)

On Castle push BASIC compiler:

Has the compiler been updated at all from the version supplied with C/C++? (4.14 is the one I got, I think, but I don't have it in front of me.)
