I just wanted to say thanks to Stuart for providing us with the Cybervillage for all these years. I remember when I first found it. A RISC OS site with news and rumours. He certainly was able to dig up the gossip long before I saw it in print in the magazines. Cybervillage was a 'must check' website. In addition, his list of links to various items of RISC OS software was very worthwhile. I remember looking through it all to see what I'd missed. Also using it to set up my RiscPC for the internet. As many have pointed out, the site became less frequently updated and this coinsided with the rise of drobe.co.uk. I have to admit that in recent years I didn't visit it much. I'll be sad if it goes. It was part of RISC OS's history, along with the likes of the poppyfields Acorn links page.

And to Stuart, I have experience of MS through a family member. I know that the illness progresses at different speeds with different people and so I hope you are lucky. Of course, you'll change your priorities in life but do everything you can not to let the MS prevent you from enjoying life!
