Looking ahead in 2012

So here we are in 2012, and belatedly I wish everyone a Happy New Year.  Indeed that should be a Happy Chinese New Year as well - celebrated in at least two of the TBA staff households!

Recently life has taken over again, so there has been little time to undertake any further development.   Frustrating for sure as there is so much to do, but then we all have to pay the bills, look after the family, and ensure the career is heading in the right direction.   In the next few weeks I should know a little more about what the rest of this year holds as some key decisions are being made.

Hopefully as the year goes on there will be a chance to get some further work done on one or two things for RISC OS.  In particular I'd like to finish some work on TAG32, and get one or two of the old titles up and running again.  I'd also like to spend some time refreshing my C/C++ development skills as writing code in assembler, while enjoyable, isn't ideal when you have limited time available for all sorts of reasons.

Hopefully the bit of momentum built up last year will continue, and the RISC OS Open project will attract some further developers and supporters.
