R-Comp will be bringing a new version of PiFi to the London Show, which takes place tomorrow. The software allows you to re-purpose a spare WiFi-enabled Raspberry Pi as an adapter for a RISC OS computer – or, if connected to a hub, a number of systems. The headline feature of version 3 of the […]
Announcement from Andrew Rawnsley, 22nd October, 2015. The popular PiCano cases for Raspberry Pi saw an update over the summer to support Pi B+ and Pi2. The PiCano case provides a superbly engineered, modern enclosure for your Pi, whilst still giving ample space for connections, upgrades (e.g. clock) and airflow.
Does PiFi mean WiFi isn’t pie in the sky? If you want to be able to connect your RISC OS kit to your wireless network, R-Comp’s stand at the forthcoming Wakefield Show might be worth a visit – they will be launching a new product called PiFi, which aims to allow you to do just […]
Six months on from the show itself… that’s almost as long as the Long Gap between the Wakefield and London shows! Ahem.

R-Comp’s ARM-based RISC OS laptop lands, allowing its users to take off (or catch a train, whatever) First hinted at by R-Comp‘s Andrew Rawnsley in the run up to last year’s London Show, and then shown off at the event itself, the ARMbook (aka ARMbok due to a typo in an early newsletter) is an […]
If you want to gain a better understanding of the different ways to get RISC OS computers connected – be that to the world beyond your own four walls, or to other systems within them – then a visit to the next Midland User Group meeting might not be a bad idea.
Providers of a WiFi solution in the form of Wispy, which allows RISC OS computers to access wireless network connections, RISCOSbits will be at Saturday’s Wakefield Show with a number of new products in the range.
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 […]
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 […]
