Thanks for the positive comments. I'm sorry to duck out, but I think I've done a fair stint.
Yes, I was worried about my baby's future until I thought about Jim as a possible successor - there's no-one better or more suited. I'm so pleased that he's agreed.
Shows: Yes, I should be around for a while to come, God willing. I could help Jim on the stand, perhaps, if he'll have me. (I wouldn't want to have to *pay* to get into an Acorn show!)
Bow ties: Ah, yes I'd forgotten them. I guess you could argue that they are part of the "intellectual property" that I'm passing on to Jim!
Thanks for such an in-depth review, Chris; I wasn't expecting anything quite so detailed.
Just to say about the Virtual RiscPC booklet, Volume 2 is in prepartion - we're just doing an index which will cover the two volumes.
Hopefully, it should be ready before Christmas, though probably not in time for the RISC OS RoadShows.
