On Wakefield 2007 is this Saturday:

This is an important event on the RISC OS calendar. I hope it is well supported and I look forward to reading all about Wakefield on Drobe (It's a long way from New Zealand).

If you are attending, don't forget to grab at ROOL mouse mat, signup for RISCOS Now (I see the website is updated), purchase some interesting software or hardware, pickup a bargin from the charity stand and smile nicely for the Drobe camera man!

All the best for the show!

On The houses that RISC OS built:

I wonder how many other companies are using A9home or Iyonix hardware that like the building companies above aren't RISC OS companies. More articles on RISC OS in business please!

On Select 4i2 apps will run on A9home:

Does this breach the licencing agreement?

I imagine that getting an A9home release of RISC OS 6 out the door is pretty high on ROL's priority list. Lets hope so!

On ROOL make 'market map' mouse mats:

How about companies release "special" editions of products for a slightly higher price and donating the difference to a fund for RISC OS related projects. This could extend to not only ROOL but other projects that have overheads but no income to cover them e.g. Netsurf, open source projects, updating popular freeware applications.

Products like printers, monitors, consumables etc could be sold with say a 5% margin added that is donated to a fund. All that would be required is someone to manage the fund and people to apply for money from it.

Given the size of the market any new ways of bringing in funding must be of benefit.

On New user guide for RISC OS 6 as release nears:

At some point a major push to 32bit the OS needed to occur and it sounds like ROL are close to getting a product out the door. I think it is well worth spending time on tidying up documentation and producing an updated manual.

Improving abstraction is a good thing, users may not notice much on the surface but from a developers view it is extremely important.

I would like to thank everyone at ROL for the work so far and I hope you get plenty of sales!!
