On A9home on sale from CJE Micros:

For me the A9 looks good and in my very own cases it would make sense to buy this one instead of an Iyonix - not that i would not love to get one.

a) I made the experiences that RISC OS 4.0x and Select 3i3 with more than 128MB of memory may cause a lot of trouble due to some well known issues with the DA and some (miss-)behaving applications with. And the fixes i knew were not so helpful. This may be solved with RISC OS 4.39 or 5.xx. But if no the more on RAM would not be such a great deal.

b) I run a RPC 700 here with no optical drive and the build in FDD was just used once for starting !HForm. And even the CD/RW drive in my RPC SA has not been used for a rather long time now.

c) IFAIK the 1000 MBit NIC in the Iyonix is far from this performence in real life. Depending on the sources i read that the perfomance is somewhere between 20 and 100 MBit. But i guess that the NIC in the A9 will be at least as "fast" as the old EtherH i have in my RPC 700.

The only niggle i can see now on the A9 is the external power supply so it does not have this computer-typical power cords (in german called "Kaltgerätestecker"). This means i can not connect the A9 with my APC power backup package.

Just my thoughts.

On RISC OS 5.10 readied for release:

It's a while ago and i do not have the technical background but how does SCSIFS affect SCSI devices? I have had a SCSI harddisk with 10 GB and i used the full capacity in one partion. I guess i am mixing up something, don't i?

On Online banking with RISC OS:

For the german living in the north-west (Schleswig-Holstein / Dithmarschen): Fresco, Netsurf and O1 will do fine with "SPK Hennstedt-Wesselburen" :o)

Well i am not sure but i guess a lot of small and mid size Sparkassen (SPK) uses the same online banking system and similar interfaces so it should work in most cases.

However i would like to see a HBCI support in RISC OS as i think that this will replace PIN and TAN in a few years - or even earlier.

On Cough up the cash, says MW Software:

Perhaps the wrong place to ask but we are just talking about RAM...

I'am pretty sure to have fitted "enough" RAM in my RPC for GIMP-Print. But due to well know DA-"too much memory"-problem i have to limit the maximum DA size for all applications using SYS "OS_DynamicArea", 8, 24*1024*1024, 0 ,0. So i am asking myself if GIMP-Print will be affected by this limit?
