On Fonts website folds under legal threat:

Not nice to see potential software pirates comments.

If there were fonts on the site which were illegal then surely the people that downloaded them should go and delete them off their hard drive? Not brag here online on how they're glad that they've got a copy!

I presume that the author of the web site did actually check the evidence from LinoType and must have found it to be at leasy partly true? Otherwise the idea of a big company being able to close down web sites just by claiming some kind of theft doesn't bare thinking about...

On The RISC OS File Repository opens:

What's the point of this?

We've had many sites doing a similar project before and they've all failed to be used and end up not being updated.

On Acorn Cybervillage needs new webmaster:

Thanks for all the kind comments.

I just wish Drobe hadn't mentioned the exact nature of my illness. It wasn't what the interview was about I believe.

Their refusal to remove it after the article was published wasn't a very nice attitude imho.

On South East show report:

Great to see that the developers of Netsurf are seriously now thinking of adding Javascript to this neat Browser.

Reg. Firefox on RISC OS, I can imagine it will take a fair few megabytes of RAM? Are we talking 30+MB?

All we need next is OpenOffice ported.... ;-)
