Doesn't Ian jeffray have an odd sense of humour? I don't know which show he went to at the weekend but it clearly doesn't seem to have been the RISC OS Show at Wakefield. Had he gone to our favourite show he might have heard me try to persuade the audience to buy RISC OS goods (not just Qercus) and celebrate the fact that RISC OS has survived - as it might not have done had Acorn still been around. I certainly talked about Qercus - and Acorn Publisher - and Acorn User - but I don't think I as much as mentioned Archive once. I certainly didn't rant about it! So next time you go to a theatre presentation, Ian, it might help if you turn your deaf aid up - or go to the right show...

... and as for your comment about Qercus - you're entitled - and maybe someday I'll do a review on your software after glancing at the file icon for 5 minutes... OK? ;-)
