On Qercus moves to in-house production:

Thanks arenaman - i've also produced magazines on RISC OS, but never entirely RISC OS. Where the title had to go to a Mac literate printers, the files were converted into PDF format on a Mac then sent as such.

I remain optimistic about things in general, and look forward to seeing the next issue.

We appreciate the efforts you're going to. However Qercus magazine is currently over three months late, and while it's a case in point that Acorn User and Archimedes World were both at one point produced entirely using RISC OS; they always involved another computer platform for generating film or PDFs to send them to print.

We *KNOW* what RISC OS is capable of producing in print; but a good chunk of the titles that are subsequently have help from a Mac or PC at the print stage. There's no point delaying a magazine so you can use RISC OS computers only to produce it. You have a commercial product, which should be making a regular appearance.

Listen to your READERS and use whatever means necesary to get the magazine out on time. If that involves a PC or Mac, then so be it.

Can we have the answer to the date given before - WHEN WILL THE MAGAZINE BE SENT OUT? PLEASE??

And what we still haven't had is a straight answer - WHEN IS THE NEXT ISSUE COMING OUT? I sent a poilte email to John last week, which was promptly ignored.. when many others have got through without complication.

John has had MANY offers of help, all of which have been politely declined. The current situation is verging on the ridiculous. Can we have a straightforward answer please, John - what is the publication date for the next issue?

Not 'It's at the printers'

When is it coming out?

On STD Temporary Closure:

In reply to David Llewlyn-Jones: Castle bought 500 shares in RISC OS Ltd when the company was formed. They've inherited the rest from Pace.
