   How long did you hang on with RiscOS for?  I'm afraid I gave in back in 
2000 ...

   C's practically assembler, what features are new to you? ;)

   I shouldn't really comment, I've not dug into the ob code as yet.

   You mention fiddling with the edge sensitivity widths:  what options are

only a couple of pixels ATM which I keep missing!
