From RISC OS
Developing for RISC OS costs time and effort. Much of that is given freely by selfless developers and enthusiastic users, however funding is often still required.
riscos.info at presently has yearly hosting costs of around US $250 for its virtual host, and domain costs. Apart from time, this is the major cost in running the site. Beyond that, riscos.info accepts donations to encourage development and show appreciation for the work of its contributors.
Unix Porting Project Subscriptions
Peter Naulls no longer accepts ongoing subscriptions to the Unix Porting Project, since riscos.info is now a spare time project and this means it would be inappropriate to accept fixed, repeating subscriptions. Additionally, the time in administration for this was considerable. Instead, riscos.info now accepts donations based upon your perception of the work done and its value to you, as a RISC OS user. riscos.info also wishes to avoid problems faced by other RISC OS subscription based products when there are large time gaps between output.
Advertising on this site
riscos.info carries Google advertisements. However, the profits from these is very small, and the total over the first two years was only a tiny fraction of the total costs.
