Chocky: OK: I'll rephrase my comment. There aren't enough RISC OS portals that update properly. (As in: there is one.) If a new one comes along that *will*, then I think that's brilliant. As for the other portals: I'm never convinced that it matters if there are portals out there that never update much. Let them do what they want. There are a huge amount of moribund Red Dwarf sites out there; I'm not worried that they never update. I'd welcome a few new RD sites that *did* update, though; just in the same way that I'd welcome another RISC OS portal that updated.
I'd actually be more worried if all six or whatever RISC OS portals *did* update reguarly (with more than a link, or a couple of lines of news) and they all said the same thing - now *that* would be a waste of effort.
