Due to FreeServe not providing access logs for sites that they host, and to cut costs, all the downloads on this site have been moved to my Blueyonder site though the old links will remain active for a while. There should be no noticeable difference to anyone accessing this site and the main site is still located here on Freeserve. If you notice any broken links please let me know. Added a link to the Dark Wing Riders Phantasy Star Online Clan website.

Please do not link directly to any of my files - instead link to the main page on this site that the file(s) can be downloaded from.

Oops, I forgot I had a website...

A lot of new software for RISC OS and Windows has been added to the site. Stryker Software is committed to providing multi-platform solutions to computing problems. Currently only the Acorn 8-bit, RISC OS and Windows platforms are supported. This will change as new operating systems are added to the available repertoire..
