If news were a hot dog, this would be the ketchup. (Ketchup? Catch-up? Geddit? No? Ho hum – where’s my coat?)

Here at the RISCOSitory/Soft Rock Software top secret underground bunker (whose entrance is cunningly disguised as a ramshackle shed) things have become somewhat busy positively hectic over the last couple of months, which has resulted in no news being posted to the site whatsoever for almost a month – not even in the ‘press release’ format whereby an announcement is simply quoted in full. So, in order to catch up – and possibly look back over other things that have been missed previously – it’s time for another dreaded ‘Snippets’ post! (Boo, hiss!) Continue reading »

An announcement from R-Comp’s Andrew Rawnsley, 4th January, 2014

This weekend brings the two-week-long !Store Christmas sales to a close. The feature items this weekend are Fireworkz Pro and HTMLEdit Studio, both on offer for half price.
