On RISC OS Open seeks rep for Acorn World event:

Hi. Here's where we at ROOL are: we fully intended to attend and do an informal talk/presentation plus some Q&A about the shared source project.

Since that time, one of our guys is in the process of moving to New Zealand and has to go over there for a month as part of that process - which we didn't have a date for when we booked the talk.

I'm having to attend something for my day job in Holland, so I've had to pull out.

Leaving our one remaining guy to do the talk. Except he has a close family member who has become seriously ill so he can't go either.

So it's not because we don't want to go, or because we don't think there's enough market or because we're so dumb we booked something we couldn't attend!

We really want to have some contemporary RISC OS presence at this show to illustrate that the sum total of Acorn-related contributions to the world of home computing doesn't start and end in the BBC era.

On Five tips for ROL over the next five years:

That's something of an exaggeration - most things will still work perfectly well. After all, there hasn't been a vast amount of development in either branch in terms of updating existing modules and only a fraction of that development will have been divergent to such an extent as to cause failure.

However, the main problem is in all of those odd little edge cases. ROL would be mad to endorse a pick-and-mix solution because where would their support obligation to the user end?

And as the ROOL staff work for free, our support position would be no different to today: you get what you're given.

> One way to achieve this would be to ensure Open and Select always have similar enough internal structure so that a pick and mix approach could be used.

Shudder. Support nightmare!!
