On Acorn Archimedes featured in-depth in Micro Mart mag:

I, too, bought the mag and enjoyed Michael's article. The immediately preceeding nostalgia article mentions the US Computer History Museum in California, where a quick search showed they have nothing later than BBC micros and early ARMs. No mention of Archimedes, RiscPC, NC, Iyonix, A9, RISC OS.

At least the UK Centre for Computing History has a better collection of Acorn-branded kit but little or nothing RISC OS related from the last ten years.

Perhaps that means it's all still in use and not ready for a museum!

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

Aaron says: "Like you I have no wish to have this arguement. My preferred approach was to sort things out behind the scenes."

So why on earth did he raise it all in RISC OS WORLD 9:4, distributed to subscribers a week before this thread started? We would all have been saved much anxiety and wasted time if he had followed his own preference.

I support ROL, VA, and ROOL and wish to see them co-operate productively (and quietly).

On Messenger Pro 4.23 does HTML email, Unicode:

...but top bit set characters in an email's "To:" field aren't accepted, I think, as in a commented email address like "Martin Würthner <martin@mw-software.com>". Or have I missed something?

On Firefox 2 will be Iyonix-only:

On this news, I have resumed donations to Unix Porting Project at a similar level to the previous year.
