The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) will once again take place online via the Zoom video conferencing system, and will feature Stefan Fröhling from the Cloverleaf project.
And gets off to a good start Since late 2019, RISC OS Cloverleaf has been mentioned a few times here on RISCOSitory. It was clear from when the name first appeared that there was going to be a crowdfunding campaign, and this has since been confirmed and expanded on further by Cloverleaf’s Stefan Fröhling.
Most of us will agree that 2020 has so far been quite a memorable year – but unfortunately not for a good reason; a global pandemic has resulted in much less social interactivity, with the obvious effect on the RISC OS community that shows and regular user group meetings have either had to be put on an extended hiatus, or – in the case of some user groups – handled in a different way.
I don’t think anyone can possibly disagree with me when I say that 2020, so far, has been an unusual year. Most of the world is in some form of lockdown due to the SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus) pandemic, with movements beyond our homes and interactions with people beyond our own households at a minimum – which means (in a RISC OS context) shows and user group meetings aren’t taking place.
The RISC OS Southwest Show 2020 took place at the Arnos Manor Hotel in Bristol last week, and as usual the show talks were recorded. These are now online for the benefit of anyone who couldn’t make the show, or could but couldn’t attend the talks.
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.
