Dear Peter

The problem you have is that many RISC OS users think that what you 
are doing is first class and are extremely grateful but are non 
technical and are unable to cope with the difficulties of using a 
program that needs, because of their lack of knowledge, additional 
input. So we chat away and seek someone who can help us use such a 
wonderful product. Hopefully, like me, they put cash into the project 
to help it forward.

Many of us simply want to encourge you and say how grateful we are for 
all the time and effort you put into the program. I would ask anyone 
with the skills needed to support Peter in his efforts so all the 
community will benefit. The rest of us need to dig into our pockets 
and send much needed cash to assist Peter.

Please take heart Peter and understand the frustration we have at 
having no fully usable web browser and yet see all the potential in 
what you are doing. We do appreciate you and wish you and your family
