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.
And given a bit of a shine to boot. RISC OS may not have built in support for WiFi, but there are tricks that can be employed in order to benefit from wireless connectivity. One of those tricks is to run Linux on a board that does support WiFi, and hitch a ride on that […]
It’s simple maths, innit? In the wake of the recent Recursion and Southwest shows, and the launch of the CE range, Ident Computer‘s Tom Williamson and RISCOSbits‘ Andy Marks have recognised a degree of overlap in some of their product range and, rather than compete, have put their heads – and their overlapping products – […]
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.

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.
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 […]
Saturday will be a Good Day to PiHard! There will be some new toys available from RISCOSbits at the London Show, which takes place on Saturday – new cases, docks for R-Comp‘s mini.m, and systems based around the Wandboard. In addition, the company’s website has been updated to reflect the new and existing range, with […]
