In reply to jc:

I agree Chris Williams does have this habit of ignoring confidental information when he thinks he can score a point. He says its he's right to a free press and freedom of speech. In these cases he is mistaken.

Regarding Qercus, I am concerned that we have still not had 277 and that 278 is not ready, You should have some 8 issues ready for publication by now since Sept 2005 was the last one.

Really John if you can't do them monthly - do it bi-monthly. But get them out. The now very poor excuse of printers not doing what you want is now extremely boring and unimpressive of the quality we should be expecting. If they (the printers) can't handle the RISC os based output files for whatever reason you need to start using the current tools for the jobs, which probably using a mix of Mac/Windows and RISC OS. You might then manage to actually produce a magazine.

Others have offered you assistance in producing the magazine. But you decided you knew best. Fine. But either get the magazine out or get someone to do it who can.

277 was supposed to have been at the printed in December - your own words John.

As for Drobe asking contributors who have written articles for Qerucs to send them the articles, it again seems Drobe don't understand copyright law. The authors of those articles could well be breaching their contracts etc., with Qercus if they did. New material would be fine. Athough I can fully understand the author fustration at the appalling lack of progress in getting Qercus out after nearing 9 months!

    OK, maybe a little more than 60 seconds, so sue us. Despite the fact that drobe.co.uk has been rushed off its feet redeveloping the site, we've still been keeping a trained eye on RISC OS news and events.
