Since Drobe does reword submissions - sometimes enhancing them sometimes perhaps dropping parts here is my original posting as it appeared on c.s.a.announce:

Dear all,

it's not easy to know who is still active in the RISC OS market - especially if you live outside UK and if you don't read English well [Note: I do so submissions in English to me are fine!].

Thus I want to collect this information for the upcoming issue of GAG-News, the regular German RISC OS magazine I publish since 1992. For this I need input. BTW, I did something like this quite some time ago in the year when Acorn World was cancelled and it was a great success.

Do *you* make or supply or maintain or ... things for RISC OS, be it hardware, software, information, ...; be it commercially or as shareware or freeware or ...; no matter what country you are in; etc.

If you do, please let me know be email to GAGNews@HQ.gag.de as quickly as possible to give me more time to put everything together. Deadline is 11.11.2005 since the next GAG-News goes to print in November.

I would appreciate if that email contains more than a link to your website. Some words about you and your offerings as a whole and perhaps a short list of them would be nice... and with that the risk that I miss some important things can be avoided.

Considering the different platforms for RISC OS (classic hardware, IYONIX, A9home and VirtualRPC) I'd like to know which you support.

Please do *not* assume that I know that you work for RISC OS, or what you do for RISC OS. I dare to assume that whoever is still active in the RISC OS market is does read comp.sys.acorn.announce, Cybervillage, Drobe and/or Iconbar and I put this plea forward to these four asking for you to drop me some lines to GAGNews@HQ.gag.de.

Thus simply put to be fair I will *not* include any entries unless I get some input.

Note: The email address GAGNews@HQ.gag.de has been set up for this query and will be deleted afterwards.

Thanks for you reading this far and for your help!

Herbert zur Nedden Publisher of THE German RISC OS magazine.
