On A9home: two years on:

Another splendid Drobe article that informs me more of progress (or non-progress) of products than the people who produce the things.

Since moving in July I have been eager to get back on the A9 mailing list with my new email address to see what's going on, but it seems my pleas to AD6 go unheeded. Unless someone gets me onto the list soon I will miss out on the flash update, should there ever be one.

On May news in brief:

The Music Scribe software is not Richard Hallas', it's the work of Philip Hazel...

And you have two 'Finally' paragraphs.

On 25th anniversary of BBC Micro TV series:

The first series used Kraftwerk's Computer World from the Grammy-award -winning album of the same name, but series two and three used a BBC Radiophonic Workshop version which was close to the original without infringing copyright... Not a patch on the original.

On Scientologists eyed up RISC OS - new claim:

I edit and produce a church magazine, with an occasional article on computers. So I'm balancing out Archive...

I read the 'Godslot', but have always treated it like an advert if it catches my attention I'll read it, if it doesn't, or I've seen it before, then I'll skip it.

On Iyonix Select demand barely double digits, says ROL:

Pete said > "How about a Drobe poll on this?"

Better off an Iconbar poll, at least they let me vote... ;-)

Back on topic... I shall not renew my subscription after receiving no upgrades and forking out for two ROM sets.

I think RiscOS Ltd should have asked Castle to show interest for Select on Iyonix. If Castle declined then that's the end of it. If Select was availble for Iyonix users, and they used it, would Castle say that the guarantee is null and void because they're not using an 'official' OS? It's not up to users to take a gamble on whether Select would work on an Iyonix. The fact that AD6 are working with RiscOS Ltd shows that they can if the conditions are right.
