On News in brief:

I used to have an Omega, when it didn't freeze randomly the other "press the reset button" trigger was a Filecore disk error. Although it would re-boot without fuss, and I could go and access the same file without causing it to immediately give the same error. I couldn't track down what was causing it, as it never seemed to occur with exactly the same file, folder or even disc. I sold my Omega and bought an Iyonix. :-)

On Could NetSurf 2.0 support JavaScript?:

I like the speed and simplicity of Netsurf, and I don't miss Java-script support.

That might be due to me having a WinXP machine and a Linux machine, both of which happily run Firefox.

Even so, I'm of the opinion that site which rely on JS aren't worth using anyway. Sites that use JS to enhance the site are OK by me, as long as there's a way to use them without JS too.

On ARM absorbs graphics processor firm:

Speaking as someone who owns both a 17 inch LCD and a 17 inch CRT monitor, I think it's vital that Castle support (and continue to develop) dual-head support, including DVI support. DVI support is vital, because most Geforce FX 5200 and 5500 cards have one D-SUB output alongside a DVI output.

On RISC OS found on Pocket PC PDA:

I have a iPAQ HX4700 (Intel PXA270); if (and when) Jan releases his port I'd certainly give it a try on my palmtop. It's the same CPU, or possibly one of the same "family".

I think the simplest way to copy RISC OS files to and from; is to use SD or CF cards via a card reader.
