Confirm comment report request

I would like to apologise to Andrew Rawnsley if the text of my message implied any criticism of him. I omitted to place a question mark following the text, <How many RISC OS developers (himself included) ask for up-front payment for vague promises of upgrades on software or hardware?> I was not implying any criticism of Andrew who has many satisfied customers. The area of disagreement is that I would not send any advance payments to Select who have continually failed to deliver. This and the Omega project, with its advance payments and failure to deliver, has greatly damaged the RISC OS market, undermining confidence.

Developers who have a proven record of reliability should have little trouble in raising support and there are those with whom I have had dealings to whom I would gladly and confidently send an advance payment if requested.

I hope that this clears up any misunderstanding.
