That’s last year’s record for a long-delayed show report broken!

This year’s Wakefield Show took place on 21st April, at the Cedar Court Hotel, organised by the local user group – the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC).

Like last year, I must apologise for another long-delayed RISCOSitory show report. As ever, this is mainly because of how busy I am outside the world of RISC OS, but also because I wanted to edit down my video recordings of the theatre talks to a more manageable length – and video editing can take a lot of time.

Better late than never, but not as late as last year – so that’s something, right?

This year’s Southwest Show took place on Saturday, 24th February, at the Webbington Hotel and Spa – the same venue at which it has been held every year since its inception. This year’s show was therefore the 21st, marking twenty years since the very first one, held in February 1998. There was therefore cake – which you missed out on if you didn’t come to the show, and which everyone who was present enjoyed. And so ends this show report: That’s all you need to know, really.

Oh, you want a little more detail? Oh well, if you insist… Continue reading »

And, oh yeah… I should probably say something about the show as well, shouldn’t I?

It is now just two and a half weeks until this year’s Southwest Show, which will be taking place at the Webbington Hotel, its home since the first one took place all the way back in 1998. With there having been no show one year – I believe in 2000 – that makes this the twentieth Southwest Show.

Having been developing and showing off his SatNav application and RISC OS GPS device at recent shows, Chris Hall will be taking visitors off in a new direction at this year’s Southwest Show. The event takes place just four weeks from today, and as well as the GPS device Chris will be launching a new genealogy application, FamTree, which will be available to purchase for £15.00.

As its name suggests, the application builds and displays a family tree. However, rather than working from data previously entered into a rigidly structured database, it instead works from data stored in a more simple manner – the directory structure of your disc or other media. Starting at a directory you choose, it parses the structure below that, with each sub-directory representing a child, containing a number of relevant files and, of course, further sub-directories for subsequent generations.

There is an ever growing supply of videos online relating to RISC OS, and the aim of this page is to – eventually – link to those that are of particular relevance or interest, so that they are easily found. For the moment, however, the list is limited to those videos that have been recorded specifically for use on this site,  at shows, user group meetings, and so on.
