Hey guys.

This isnt doing anyone any good is it?

I don't use riscos because I cannot get the software I require on this platform. However, I remember having to post somewhere for popstar help a few years ago just to get email. On MAcos at the time this was easy with a gui based system with dialoge boxes. Seems that heermes is the same simple to setup app. Good luck to them.

So up comes hermes and people start slagging it. If it makes things wasier for novices then it is a good app. Simple.

So what if a programmer could write one quickly!!!! They havent and didnt. RCOMP have and they sell it. They also offered me excellent service in the past (even phonecalls to the house) with another app.

It is a bit like one of my windows and palm apps.... One is an IDE for databases. Is it as good as runrev, VB, etc..... Well NO it is NOT. Is it easier to make a simple database with my app. YES. That is why it is usefull.

How long would it take a pro developer to make one themselves... Hmmmm 3 days max. BUT they havent.

Similar to RCOMP. They would not have commisioned it if it was not marketable..... so there IS a need for it.

Some people are slagging rob because he is here without a riascos box. I pop in now and then for general interest bout the platform I USED to use. No harm in that is there...

Cheers Bob
