On How to get RPCEmu Spoon Edition running on an Apple Mac:

I'd like to see a pre-built version for MacOS. I really don't want to go to the effort of installing all that dev software just to build this. -- Sprite

On RISC OS Firefox port in bug fix update:

I'm just surprised that Chocks is still working on Acorn stuff at all. I've hardly heard anything of him since he toddled off to the US

On User-friendly RPCEmu for Windows emerges:

I'd love to see the Mac version developed a bit more. I have had broken directory errors too. I always keep a backup of my hard disc image. I did manage to use it recently write some code to port my Newsbase email to mbox format though so it's not all bad. The disc errors meant I needed the real RiscPC to do the actual reprocessing though.

On NetSurf bags GBP10K investment from Google:

Good news for Netsurf!

Can I ask though, why PDF export? I'd just print to PDF instead. Just doesn't seem like a priority for me.
