So long as they don't wobble.

On Select nets 1,000th subscriber:

"From our point of view the lack of new features in RISC OS 5 since its launch four years ago speaks volumes."

Yes, it's shocking the way that Castle have only implemented support for new hardware like USB2 and multiple graphics cards, rather than getting down to the serious business of allowing rounded corners on action buttons. More seriously, I agree with hzn that this is a bit of cheek coming from a subscription-funded company that gave their subscribers nothing for three years - especially since Castle have a well-earned reputation for keeping quiet about new developments until they're actually ready. Yes, there are some useful changes to things in Select that RO5 doesn't have - most notably some of the improvements to the bundled apps - but none of them is exactly earth-shattering.

On June news in brief:

Searching on Riscpedia for 'Drobe' got four results: two comments from myriscos.co.uk, a link to the Acornarcade front page, and one two-year-old Drobe article. So the site isn't empty, it just isn't very complete :)

Takkaria: I don't see anything wrong with running a website off a RISC OS box provided you're not expecting heavy traffic. Nice low power-consumption, and quite enough memory and I/O bandwidth to pass text entries to the current RISC OS market. I wouldn't want to run slashdot or NTK on one, but that's different :)

On Multi-page ArtWorks 2.7 now available:

rjek:

I think MPro/Pluto is a bit like Zap/StrongEd. Personally, I've used MPro for years and think it's great (especially with recent additions, which fixed some things that had been niggling for years) - but I tried Pluto and just couldn't seem to get on with it. Some people find it the other way around.

On The return of the 8bit-era: creating a 'neo-micro':

I think you mean "the operating system equivalent of a bonsai tree", rather than the other way around.... Mind you, I'd be very interested to see RISC OS (or indeed any other OS) running on a tree!
