Hi all.
In RISC OS, if you drag the right-hand side of a window to the right- hand side of the screen, it automatically expands the left-land side of the window to the left.
Is there a way to turn this off? I find it rather annoying that it expands my window to the left, when all I want to do is to align the right-hand side of the window with the right-hand side of the screen.
Regards, Terje

As an attempt to rename the Cyrillic alphabet on RISC OS thread on here (which seems to have gone somewhat off-topic) and also bring the discussion back into relevance to RISC OS, I've spent a few hours last night and this morning converting my Illustrated Holy Bible multi-media CD Rom software to fully 32-bit compatibility.
It was originally written back in 1992 for the Cumana CD Roms distributed with the A5000 to schools, and contains the entire text of the authorised King James version.

Where do 'Macro' get put - in a program file.
At the front - or at the end of a file (before or after 'END')? Have been trying to get the following 'macro' to work with 'ObjAsm'.

Hi, Christopher, the brains behind this development, has issued beta 7 which is a bug fix release.
There is one point to be aware of as the resulting crash is very terminal. Thump has probably always done this but maybe no-one had managed to recreate the exact circumstances. The work around is ever so easy. If !Png2Spr has not been seen then Thump will not thumbnail PNGs but issues an error. On some subsequent operations to that window Thump will attempt to do something with the non-existent PNG.... read more

Hi, I am trying to debug some code and I came through bne.n and b.n and bmi.n like ARM assembly instructions.
I was able to find what bne, b, and bmi instruction does.... But I am not able to understand what .n at the end of each instruction means ? I am little bit new to ARM assembly...

In today's Guardian, in the Technology section, there is a letter to the Ask Jack column which discusses a problem that a Chris Riley has with a PDF file originally created on an Acorn computer.
He wants to put it into MS Word format. The answer that Jack has come up with is to read it with Adobe reader, print it out, scan it in, and then OCR it! Can anyone suggest a better solution? -- John Rickman Iyonix

Hi All Can anyone help, please? Is there any way in which I can specify, using NetFetch/Hermes, that only the small emails should be downloaded? (This is for when I'm downloading via a mobile phone rather than using broadband at home.) I've discovered that, with Hermes, you can specify that it should download the small emails first. Great! I thought, All I need to do is to stop it as soon as it gets to the big emails.
The only trouble is that, if you abort the download, it *doesn't* .... read more

Slightly off topic, but I know a few here read it - Technology at Home magazine has been suspended, according to the website. With the demise of Living with Technology earlier, it made me wonder would anybody be interested in a one-off magazine (similar size to both RISC OS Now and Qercus) covering a broad spectrum of what both titles covered? I'd envisage this as a 52 page, A4, title - full colour - good quality paper.
Covering a mixture of computing (PC, Mac and RISC OS) and non-computing .... read more

In case it's of interest to anybody...
Maplin have got a Netgear Universal WiFi Internet Adaptor on offer for the next few days (offer expires March 22nd). As far as I can see, this appears to be the Netgear WNCE2001, which should give a wi-fi connection to any single wired Ethernet device. If it is the WNCE2001, it supports WPA2-PSK and WPA-PSK security.
Disclaimer: I don't have one, I don't have any connection with Maplin.
If you don't have a wireless router or access point w.... read more
