On Software hosted by Drobe: Your guide:

Wow. I'd completely forgotten I'd uploaded software onto the drobe web space. :)

On Vigay: I was told to remove my Firefox 2 tutorial:

Why is it that existence talent is often directly related to an express inability to work with others? There is no doubt that PN has contributed a hell of a lot for the RISC OS platform, but he is seem so stroppy. Someone fetch his rattle from his pram, or perhaps maybe it's best lying in a puddle?

When I read articles I'm glad that I didn't bother getting a new RISC OS machine and ended up using a Linux box. I do believe that the developers behind RISC OS and it's associated software truly don't deserve the avid following it still gets.

One day perhaps we'll all grow up.. but that would make life so much less interesting.

On MicroDigital sought by bailiffs:

I don't agree with people writing off deposits. If you've paid for something and the product doesn't appear then you should get the money back. There is no point in trying to support a company by writing off your deposit when they themselves cannot forfill their own promises. By not claiming your deposit you are condoning their activities. It's your choice of course, but it doesn't make good business sense.

On MicroDigital sought by bailiffs:

I think it's sad that a customer had to resort to legal action. I'm amazed that Microdigital could provide such a poor quality of service in the first place. It is a shame that Microdigital are unable or unwilling to respond to this article.

On GCCSDK team trumpets module support:

This is great news. My thanks goes to the GCCSDK team. I like many others have been put off writing modules before now, it's nice to have some freely available tools for the job. I couldn't see anything wrong with the article.. It doesn't bode well though for drobe.co.uk if their headlining writers are having a public spat..

  • South East 2008 theatre talk videos now online
    Didn't make to the South East 2008 show in Guildford this year? Not to worry, because on top of the usual Drobe coverage, you can now watch videos of the presentations made by RISC OS Open and RISC OS Ltd staff at the event. Recorded live at the show, the videos, in which products and projects are talked up by developers to punters, also include question and answer sessions from the floor.
