On Paul Vigay found dead off Southsea seafront:

Even at this distance Paul had assisted me and I'm shocked and saddened to hear the news of his death.

My condolences to his family (Louie et al) and to the whole RISC OS community. We have lost a true believer and are surely diminished by his passing.

On Merry Christmas and a happy new year:

Thanks also from the 'deep south' of WA - you keep us in touch with events that are so far away from us.

On New RISC OS ownership claim may derail ROOL RiscPC ROM release:

Would you believe I had an email last night from someone in central Queensland asking me if I could help them get a RISC OS machine! Seems unlikely but it is true!

Perhaps I should suggest he reads Drobe before we proceed any further!

From my involvement since the 1980's I've seen a capable and brilliant system slowly wither. What we need now is for all the energy, resources and funds to be directed in a positive way to the benefit of RISC OS as a whole. If we continue with a factional approach that is little more than a civil war then we will end up like so many African nations.

Pull your fingers out, bang heads and then get on with working together and stop this destructive nonsense!

On Executive decision time for Midlands show:

An innovative solution to a problem faced by many.

It appears that the images present three different setups. Any chance of some further info on each of the pics (apart from the closed case of course)
