I make good use of my pinboard in a similar but slightly different way. I use !StrongMen for several tasks including opening certain user and system directories. I have several pinboards an have their obey files as items in !StrongMen. This allows me to switch between my pinboards really fast.
The pinboard may be one of RISC OS's most underated features.
"I also note that no mention was made of Sophie's original name"
I believe that it would have been wrong to have quoted her original name. I dont think that it would have improved the article in any way.
Those of us who have come through those gender related issues prefer to leave the past in the past. I know Sophie is open about her past, as am I. Hovever there comes a time when its best to just leave it be. If someone had published my birth name, I would have been very unimpressed.
Geting back on Subject - Happy birthday BBC BASIC - I love it!!
I'm sorry that this isn't strictly on topic, but I think !Netsurf is great. The folks who develop it deserve a lot of credit. I tried downloaded Firefox once, but my olde ARM710 is too slow to use it, but it was an excellent job getting it to run on RISC OS.
My RISC OS fantasy would be RISC OS X, something along the lines of MacOS X, but with RISC OS.
