Show report: Wakefield 2023

No London Show again? Read about the last Wakefield one instead! Due to circumstances beyond the control of the organisers, last year’s Wakefield Show morphed into the Wradfold show – Wakefield, but in Bradford – and this year, the show carried on in the same location, for much the same reason. It took place on 22nd April at the Cedar Court Hotel in – well, yes – Bradford.

Wakefield 2022 – show report

With no London Show today, it’s a perfect time to remember Wakefield! This year’s Wakefield show was a slightly unusual one for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the show was held around a month later than usual, on 21st May, rather than its traditional April slot – although you could also argue that it had returned to its original traditional month; the show started out in May back in 1996.

Show report: London 2021

30th October, 2021, marked the return to physical shows in the UK, when the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) hosted their customary October event at the St Giles Hotel in Feltham – the RISC OS London Show. Understandably under the circumstances, there were fewer exhibitors than in previous years, as well as few visitors; it was a much quieter show than usual – but despite that, it was still an excellent day for finding out what’s happening in the RISC OS world. So what happened? What did we…

Snippets – 9th January, 2022

A roundup of 2021 news and releases not already covered on RISCOSitory With 2021 now behind us, the time has come for one final round up of news that hasn’t already found its way onto onto these pages – although this time, in fact, it’s the only round up of such news for 2021; for 2020, a snippets post appeared half way through the year and then another just after the year ended – but no earlier post has been compiled for 2021.

Gerph to fan the Pyromaniac flames at ROUGOL

Last November, Gerph gave a talk to the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) on the subject of Pyromaniac, which he initially launched earlier that year as the RISC OS Build Service, and discussed how it came about and how it was developed, and its practical use for testing things. One year on, he is returning to the group to give a follow-up presentation, to update the group on what he’s done with it since.

Not a show report (honestly): London 2020

New hardware from R-Comp, and RISC OS 5.28 released! With the recent RISC OS London Show being a virtual one, taking place online via Zoom and streamed to YouTube, I decided in advance not to write a show report. Even now the event is over, it’s still possible for people to go back and watch those streams. However, there was some news that became evident as the day progressed, both within the various talks and in announcements put out to coincide with it, so it’s worth a brief look at…
