For RISCOS stuff we can manage a few useful things in the 'no more than a
couple of hundred quid, or swap for some hardware' range, but as it doesn't
really bring in any significant money we can't justify any more at the
moment. If we get some more lucrative bespoke work then I'd certainly like
to spend a bit of it on risc-pc related stuff.
