On RISCWorld mag back-issues reprinted online for free:

> Shame on you for writing such a thing.

Whoa. When did supporting RISC OS turn into a religion? Let's keep shame out of this!

(By the way, I still use and like RISC OS, though I'm happy to accept this is an entirely irrational practice. Like eating cocktail sausages, or watching England play cricket.)

On NetSurf on RISC OS faces axe:

It would be a real shame if this happened, but you can't blame the NetSurf guys. If there aren't the coders out there, then I guess the game's more or less up. Shame to be overtaken by BeOS, though!

On RISC OS 5 port hopes for netbook now in production:

Interesting stuff. Jeffrey seems to be getting through the work at an impressive rate. Kudos to him, and the ROOL team, for making this all possible.

On Five tips for ROL over the next five years:

Fair points (and it is crazy that CTL seems so coy about commercial licences), but given the amount of money in the community (or not), I don't think we'll be seeing lawyers drafted in to alter it any time soon. I wonder if this is the best we're going to get?
