On First screenshot: Beagleboard runs RISC OS 5 desktop:

Yes, I have told the meeting the times for the 2 tests so far. Anything more? We are likely to be here for some time yet. We won't get turfed out quite yet.

Hi all Beaglers, I am sitting here in the Blue-eyed-Maid at a ROUGOL meeting. Anyone have a supportive message for ROUGOL? Can I report to the meeting any up-to-the-minute news about performance of the beagleboard?

Can we get Castle interested in manufacturing a Cortex-A8 based computer?

Words fail me. Well done Phlamethrower! Your effort is a huge step forward for RISC OS. Keep going. I look forward to getting my hands on a netbook/notebook with an OMAP3530 or i.MX515 SoC inside.

On RISCOS Ltd's head licence with E14 leaked:

In answer to bucksboy of 2 days ago, you can vote for "Who Owns RISC OS?" in a poll running on Acorn.misc. This is the poll that Drobe dare not run.

On NetSurf 2.0 release pencilled for April 2009:

I look forward to version 2 and am just hoping it hasn't been pencilled in for the first of the month. :-) Dave Lane

On Google funding offered to NetSurf project:

I can only add another "well done" to the Netsurf team for applying to Google for the funding - are we allowed to ask how much? - and for being good enough to be part of the 35 per cent who won the funding. Dave Lane

On Iyonix-only Firefox 2 port released online:

First of all, well done Peter N.. I have to use the middle mouse button when clicking on a link to open in a new tab rather than right clicking on the link to use the menu option which doesn't work here, but did with the previous FF1.5 versions. The icon for FF in the filer directory window is now that nondescript letter A made up of cog wheels. Are these other folks' experiences? In answer to Druck's post yesterday: Does Druck know that the police can arrest you for dissassembly especially if it's ARMed dissassembly. Ask Ian Chamberlain or any of us other RISC OS demonstrators. I am glad that bookmarks now works. Well done Peter.

On TechWriter to get Word 2k export:

I am dissapointed by Word2k export winning the Icon Technology vote. I never use Word export as a matter of principle: One is encouraging the idea that MS Word is a standard to be accepted. Now, surely, we don't want to do that? I always use pdf export for non-RISC OS people. In fact we should encourage MS users not to send us MS Word documents, but to use a 'neutral' format like pdf. For example, increasingly, UK government and other public web sites in the UK offer their documents as PDF files. I want to help smash MS not support them. Cheers.

On Firefox pledgers hold onto their cash:

mrchocky needs to state the year as the church calendar varies each year (e.g. date of Easter). On looking up etymonline, it seems to be 25th March /1824/ for the day of the psalm. To find which psalm you have to work out where 25th March comes in the church's year for 1824!

On Firefox pledgers hold onto their cash:

I couldn't find the expression 'pony up' in the Psalm for the 25th February (see mrchocky's comment of 23/8/05), perhaps he is singing from a different psalter, but I am sure it is an ill omen for those who don't pay up. ;-)

On Cambridge RISC OS meet up planned:

The Anchor Pub web site says it is in Sliver Street not Silver Street, hence my question.

On Cambridge RISC OS meet up planned:

I am wondering why the street the pub is in is called Sliver Street. Is it due to the showers of glass after a flame war between RISC OS adversaries who have had too much to drink in the Anchor? Perhaps someone who lives in Cambridge can inform us before we chance attending ;-)
