Confirm comment report request

To dgs: I've known about the invoice question for some time but have not felt free to discuss it publicly until JL publicly confirmed last night some more details from those invoices. Whilst he rejects the interpretation he was at pains to confirm that there was "no change in the invoiced unit price for authorised products".

Are you rejecting what Jack said or are you suggesting that he chose such a convoluted phrase for some other reason? When asked if there were any other items on the invoice in addition to authorised products, he named "unauthorised products" and "products not capable of authorisation" and went on to name those as Virtual Acorn.

Now are you suggesting that Castle didn't increase the price of Virtual Acorn on their invoices? Please name your source. Or are you suggesting that I've got the amount wrong? Perhaps the increase wasn't limited to Virtual Acorn but included another "unauthorised product" that I don't know about? I'm happy to receive your correction if you have direct knowledge of the matter. I'm not going to quote directly but I'm double or treble checking the facts before posting on this matter and I'm ignoring all the good (bad?) rumours going around where I haven't or can't check the facts. And yes I do keep contemporaneous notes - and in far better condition than those kept by a certain professional BBC reporter. I'm reporting. The only 'representation' that I'm doing is for myself and - in a small way - for RISC OS (*not* ROL).
