Finally updated the links section! I've decided to focus on Acorn games related links - it's too much work to try and keep a collection of all Acorn links together, and pointless since other people can do it better. But there's now a totally up-to-date and (I hope!) fairly comprehensive colletion of Acorn games-related links which I hope to now keep up to date.
