On OCR tool STRing updated:

Initial results not bad. I'm running this new version on RISC OS 5.13. Scanning document at the scanners highest resolution may help to improve the quality of the sprite and subsequent OCR processing. 300 dpi is normal but 600dpi might be better - I haven't done any thorough testing to prove this however. Keep up the good work Mark.

On Long-awaited Organizer 2 on sale with iCal import and export support:

Good news. A superb and easy to use app.

The launch price mentions 15UKP and 12UKP - anyone know the difference?

On ArtWorks 2.9 set for Wakefield 2009 launch:

What can I add. Thanks again to Martin who continues to improve it. The alpha-transparency should make it easier to make objects blend into the background without that nasty fringing.

One of the best utilities for automatic backup I have come across.

On USB memory stick app bugfixed in time for British Summer Time:

Excellent work from Jeff. The module doesn't restrict the user to just reading and writing to flash memory - it can be used successfully to read/write at acceptable speeds to external USB hard-drives and is cheaper than using a NAS device.
