Justin Fletcher is a really good programmer, He used to publish programs in the Acorn Magazines and magazine discs which were brilliant back in the eighties,mostly utilities, but they always worked great. As the articles indicate he wrote most of the updated Risc OS rom code, unfortunately when the OS forked between Riscos ltd and Castle limited he started to receive death threats from a sick individual which as others had also received them had to be taken seriously and he eventually withdrew from Risc OS programming.
