I've always found Aaron to be an astute businessman.

Given how difficult the rest of the world's newspapers and magazines are finding it to make money from their publications at the moment, I wonder if the underlying reason for this announcement is that the financial return on the time and effort has become minimal.

The stated reason does not make sense to me. I can't imagine that those alleged to be "attacking" subscribe to the CD, so how would pulling the plug on it be an appropriate response ?

I've suscribed to the CD in the past and thought it well produced - With subscriptions to 'Qercus', 'Archive' and 'RISCOS Now' currently on the go, I'd let the 'RISCWorld' one lapse - but I'm wishing I'd supported it more now....

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
