    Think I can beat that.... I remember using Wordwise on a BBC micro with a "Torch" double 5.25" 400k floppy disk drive in 1982. That add-on alone cost about £1000, equivalent to about £3500 today!

    Congratulations XARA too. But a big discount would be good.

    Sadler - Have not seen you around here for a while. I was at a CorelDRAW conference in 1995 or 96 when Corel announced they were going to market Xara. After a demo I decided this was the software for me. But you have a few years on me.

    Info Re: Happy 40th

    I have been with Charles Moir's developments and products since Wordwise so almost the full 40 years. Only 26 years are actually Xara-named products, surely?
    Despite the timeline hype, Impression was a pain to use when it had its dreaded dongle. I think I can still lay my hands on every single physical purchased gizmo.

    For a better timeline, read: https://www.xara.com/uk/history/.

    Well done Charles.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Didn't ArtWorks also have a dongle too Acorn, or is my memory fading further? Two parallel ports forcing the computer further off the wall behind :-)
