Very interested in the above article. As a busy consultant obstetrician & gynaecologist (almost all UK maternity casenotes owe something to the pioneering "Green Notes" design I created using my BBC micro + the most popular UK maternity system used my medical knowledge) I owe a massive amount to my BBCmicro->RiscPC->Iyonix->VirtualAcornonPC pathway and am now in process of the difficult move forward from the nightmares of MSWord etc to the new world of VirtualAcorn on a Mac to continue to create my massive website. Try googling "Perinatal Data" to see something if what I am trying to achieve.

But goodness me it has turned out to be a very difficult uphill road. So much to learn so fast. However, having now been using my Macbook Pro for about 6 weeks I have no doubt that this was the right move - Hopefully in time various aspects of the transition, especially to do with printing will become gradually easier.

Best wishes to any other amateur RISCOS fanatics who are trying to make the same difficult journey.

P.S. To my delight and surprise this is being typed into a window on my VA-Apple version but I have now forgotten how I ever got here!
