Thanks for another update, Charlie!

It's appreciated all the more because we know you've been very busy lately.

-Nice for retroness on a keyring...
...Shove the ArcStick into your work computer when you're bored and in moments you have Classic RiscOS goodness.
-It's the full Classic RiscOS setup - I bet nobody's bothered to delve the depths of the 'standard' set up.
-It runs Faaaast.
-Yet more games and emulators installed.
-Smaller archive too!

-Oh, and it's a bit experimental.
Wow! Thanks for compiling that!

I suppose it could autostart from any device - even a CD!

How's that?
That would be a nice option. Certainly something to think about.

...warning of impending maintenance will appear on the main site page. Also the above Classic RiscOS logo will go off-line when the server is.
Well, at least it didn't take anything else out when it failed!

And the embedded Qube RiscOS Server status indicator logo is a nice touch, too.
