Whew!!! :bowdown:

Is the coast all clear for us to come out now? When the fog gets very thick, it's becomes very difficult to see where you're going. (I used to work with a person we all called "The Fog", and some mornings "The Fog" would roll into work quite heavy!) :grin: I would like to make a mere comment, but I'll skip the foggy bit and just move on.

Sometimes I feel that information is either not clear, not up to date on web sites, or certain information won't be released when I'm looking on the web sites of Castle, RISC OS, X Ample, etc., etc. Maybe at times I have a fog related condition on certain days or I just didn't know where to look. I understand that not everything is possible and many people in the RISC OS related business have many things to do to bring us up to date while in the meantime everyone has to find their bread and butter money. We do need to look at ways of retrieving & delivering news to Drobe to keep us more up to date and to the facts of developments and events. Maybe it's just me in my little corner of this world that I miss the boat, but I would love to at times see an update article on various hardware / software. Like the Iyonixs, it's features, bundled software it has, and all that stuff like a new model car release road test. Same with software like Artworks2, showing it's many features, updates, screenshot of effect achieved, etc., etc., again like a car road test report. Yes we do get some articles on these subjects and good technical info at times, but often lacks more info as I was on about before. Why this point is of no greater value to most U.K. or possibly Euro RISC OS user than it appears to me personally, is that I mean in N.Z. we don't have too many users with newer software or hardware like this nor do we have the advantage of dropping in to the RISC OS shop / dealer / distributor to talk and see these things. I would and did drive two or three hours when I lived in Australia, just to look at Acorn / RISC OS stuff, this is not the situation these days as per lack of stock and most product brought here to order only. Anyway, before I get to chapter 12 / Volume 2 of this commentary story, is it possible for more insight and in depth coverage of software and articles, or is this not the pupose of Drobe? Cheers, Steve.
