a) Nice article. Thanks very much; I almost feel as if I was there. Getting there from Canada would have been quite expensive...

b) Please, somebody find a way to merge Castle & Select/Adjust/ROL/whatever soon. It really pains me to see this split.

c) Sometimes you have to use a non-RISC OS machine. I'm writing this on a new HP zt3000 laptop becasue I only have wireless net right now and I don't have wireless access on my Iyo. In the few days of becoming reacquainted with windoze (after nearly seven years without touching it) it has been amazing to find just how unpleasant it still is. Yes, this 1.7GHz machine is faster on Squeak benchmarks but it certainly couldn't be considered faster for email, web, blah blah. Nice screen & kbd though.... Then again, the frequent auto-reboots, intrusive install process for any new software, ugly UI etc really grate.
