Happy New Year from the South West of Australia where we have recorded 
the hottest day on record today (for our part of the world)- 40.9C 
further up the coast Perth recorded 42.9C?!? and ended the year 2012 
with the longest run of hot days since the 1940s (consecutive days 
over 100F) Rainfall for 2012 at around 66% of the long term average 
and the minimum and maximum temperature averages several degrees above 
usual means we are in for a long and dry summer - next good rain in 
April - maybe!

Steffen kindly sent me his beta software to test on my ARMini but it 
proved unreliable and I forwarded the reports to him. I'm using a 
CD/DVD burner supplied by RComp.

There are still some of us keeping the faith and with the sales of 
raspberry pi approaching the million mark there may be some new blood 
injected. The RPi forums have had some positive comment about aspects 
of RISC OS Pi - and some suggestions for improvement. There appear to 
some people returning after an absence of years and others trying out 
an operating system that seems ideally suited to the raspberry pi.

Keep up the good work Steffen and I for one am willing to pay for an 
upgrade - even if the final solution may be to come at a later date. 
If it will help you along then let me know how much to kick in now!
