Things have been a bit slow lately?

Very. The ORC site died for a bit.

Apart from other worries, I've been waylaid with other interesting things to do (see the main entry to these pages here). I've added a little to the tools page today. I've also had numbers of interesting contributions from readers which I hope to post soon (if work stops going mad for a second or so). Sad news is nobody's cracked the Riddle yet. Stay tuned - and thanks for being patient!!
