It's a shame - but I'm almost glad I couldn't make it this year - Aside from the obvious, there just doesn't seem to be enough going on to tempt me back - which is sad, damn sad!
One thing that amuses is Acorn Computers Ltd successful use of brand - iirc back when Castle launched the Iyonix myself (and many others on here!) suggested re-using the Acorn Brand - they classic response was along the lines of 'It's old hat, too much negative baggage, better to leave the past in the past etc etc..' - it's a shame, a massive shame, that it takes some PC box shifter to realises that the Acorn brand carries more weight, even many years after the orginal companies demise, than every other piece of RISC OS marketting since - combined.
Sorry for the somewhat depressing comment - hope everyone that could make this year had a good time!!
