Well I thought the show had a very positive drive forward. Advantage Six seem to be promoting their little box of tricks well, and so too were Risc OS Ltd, with Risc OS 6. I think I came away with more stuff than I usually buy, although I having problems using HForm on my RiscOS 4.39 disc (OK, so I opened a folder this one time containing New Look from the old 3.11 days, and it totally messed up my long file names), and now I'm buring my head in the sand, and saying to myself, "Why did I do that!?!?! - I thought only Microsoft could do this to me!" So anyway, I'll just have to pull the drive, and format it in another 4.39 machine.

My thanks to the RComp team, for giving a Messenger pro for us windows dummies. I'd been spending ages on my Iyonix trying to set it up, and with a quick guide, I'll be up and running on my RiscPC - When I get Risc OS 6 up and running - When I........ And so on. We all have to have something fun to do on our computers these days. I'm not saying it's a bad thing all this setting up - It's the crashing part after that Windows manages to do well at that keeps the cleaver/dumb thing in ballance.

I did think quite hard about Castles Risc OS 5.12/5.13 upgrade, but I though, the upgrade mainly addresses the new series of graphics cards, and when asked about the new series of cards (in terms of redraw speed), they were frank, and said not much. So sadly I passed on this opertunity to upgrade.

Good thing too as CJE Micros were raking in the money (including myself). They had a very good line up of extras, A9Homes, Poduals, and more extras. Leaving with the now hard to find Viewfinder, I hope this little gem will beef up my viewing plesure on my RiscPC.

As advertised by APDL, Draw Works XL is top of the line. Until now, I'd been using Draw Plus, from 199 something.

Finnaly, I hope everyone can forgive me for this rather long post.
