How predictable: I got modded down.
It's symptomatic for the state of the RISC OS market.
Look how vulnerable we are; when a developer runs into a train we have a serious problem. Hope this will not happen to the few that keep the little software we have alive.
But then again; they get older too and will eventually die, hopefully of old age.
PS related to this thread a song of good old doctor Hook & the Medicine show springs to mind: the freaker's ball which has some lines that say " the greatest of the sadists and the masochists too are screaming please hit me and I'll hit you". That's the state of RISC OS today!
