On RISCWorld mag back-issues reprinted online for free:

> Shame on you for writing such a thing.

Whoa. When did supporting RISC OS turn into a religion? Let's keep shame out of this!

(By the way, I still use and like RISC OS, though I'm happy to accept this is an entirely irrational practice. Like eating cocktail sausages, or watching England play cricket.)

On NetSurf on RISC OS faces axe:

It would be a real shame if this happened, but you can't blame the NetSurf guys. If there aren't the coders out there, then I guess the game's more or less up. Shame to be overtaken by BeOS, though!
