I find it quite interesting that people feel they can "bend the ears" of developers and traders such a lot at RISC OS shows - certainly more than your average PC market. I for one spent a fair amount of time waiting in line at Wakefield stalls while a gentleman told the chap behind the counter about how things have changed since he had an Atom. In one way this is slightly bothersome, but in another way it makes me appreciate how friendly and cuddly the RISC OS world can be (when you're not reading the bitchin' on CSA groups, anyway).

Special salutes and stop-carryons go to traders at Wakefield, who happily listened and gave friendly advice far above their call of duty. David Holden, Andrew Rawnsley, everyone behind the STD stand - to highlight but a few.
