Something to read on the train on the way to the show, perhaps? A little bird has informed me that the next issue of the lesser-spotted Archive Magazine has been printed and was being bundled into envelopes the other day. With the Wakefield Show now just six days away, the obvious thing to infer is […]
One of the rarest species these days in the world of RISC OS is the Lesser-spotted Archive – well, more specifically, it’s new editions of the Lesser-spotted Archive. However, the London Show, which opens its doors to the public in a little over an hour from now, is expected to be the scene of a […]
Have a heart: Flash that cash! Ex-editor of Archive magazine, Paul Beverley, is embarking on a 940-mile solo bicycle ride in order to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. He will be setting off from John o’Groats on 21st April, and aiming to cycle an average of just over 67 miles each day, to […]
Announcement from Dave Bradforth, 10th July, 2014. Working in conjunction with the estate of David Holden, we will shortly be launching the first stage of The APDL Archive. This is planned to be a lasting tribute to David Holden’s work, and an invaluable resource for all users of RISC OS computers.
Showing a level of initiative often sadly lacking these days in the RISC OS community, the current editor and publisher of Archive Magazine, Jim Nagel, has made available a sampler of issue 22:12 (volume 22, issue 12). His main motivation for doing this is that the physical magazine is only due back from the printers […]
It is with the greatest regret that I have to pass on some very sad news – the recent passing of Jim Nagel. Martin Wuerthner has been in contact with the family, and released the following statement on their behalf: “It is with great sadness that the family of Jim Nagel announces his passing peacefully […]
With 2019 drawing to a close at the end of today, to be immediately followed by a year with the official designation of 2020, it’s time to round up a selection of news that hasn’t been covered on RISCOSitory over the course of the year.
The 2019 RISC OS London Show took place on Saturday, 26th October – and once again (speaking as an exhibitor) seemed to be a buzzing, exciting show with plenty for the visitor to see and experience. It was the 11th London Show, with the first having taken place on 3rd October, 2009, and there was […]
Six months on from the show itself… that’s almost as long as the Long Gap between the Wakefield and London shows! Ahem. The place to be for discerning RISC OS users (and retro Acorn enthusiasts) on Saturday, 27th April, was Wakefield – more specifically, the Cedar Court Hotel in Calder Grove – because that was […]
Just in time for Wakefield! With half of a year having passed since the London Show (and the Wakefield Show almost upon us), the RISCOSitory report is more than a little overdue – again! The usual main excuse applies, which is that it’s always busy here in the bunker, and some things have to be […]
