Keith Richard Keefe, who is working on the 32-bit conversion of Impression, is planning to visit the Southwest Show on Saturday, but has been unable to commit to an all-day stand. R-Comp have therefore stepped in to provide “retail duties” and willhave a stock of CDs available to buy from their stand.
Announcement from Andrew Rawnsley, 5th May, 2015.
We are pleased to announce that the long-awaited Impression-X is now available via !Store. Please look for !Store in your Apps folder on your icon bar, or go to www.plingstore.org.uk to download it for free1.
The RISC OS Awards poll for 2017 has been open now for about a week and a half, and there have been 60 votes cast – so now is probably a good time as any to take a look at some of the alternative nominations people have made if they felt something other than the options on offer deserve to win in any given category.
The question on everyone’s lips for countless years to come will be “Where were you on 28th October, 2017?”
Okay, they probably won’t be asking that – but I’m asking it now.
Well? Where were you?
I’ll tell you where I was: Feltham. More specifically, the St Giles Hotel – in the conference rooms on the first floor, where this year’s London Show was held. If you weren’t there, I’ll assume you’re reading this because you have an interest in RISC OS, and would like to know what you missed. In which case, read on…
The RISC OS Awards poll for 2016 was brought to a close on 29th February. As before, the results were processed and counted on a RISC OS computer (using a home-brewed program to turn the votes into a file for each category, ready to be loaded into Fireworkz), and initially announced on the @RISCOSitory Twitter feed. Those results are now online on the RISC OS Awards website and the various winners have been notified – where possible – by email.
Didn’t we have a lovely time the day we went to
This year’s RISC OS London Show took place on 29th October, and while it wasn’t as large as last year’s event (which I’ll discuss near the end of this report) it was still an enjoyable and worthwhile one. So, without any further preamble, here is a run down of what visitors could have seen, working clockwise from the entrance.
Right, I’ve been up to Wakefield, had a cup of tea and a little walk, and now it’s… er, June!?
The annual trip to the North for RISC OS users – the Wakefield Acorn & RISC OS Computer Show – took place this year on 16th April, at the Cedar Court Hotel, Denby Dale, near Wakefield – the venue at which it originally started in 1996 before setting off for pastures new, and to where it returned some years ago and has remained ever since.
The RISC OS Awards poll for 2015 officially drew to a close in mid-February, with the votes being counted and initially announced on the @RISCOSitory Twitter feed about a week later – and those results have now been published on the RISC OS Awards website, and – where possible – the winners will be formally notified by email today.
The who and the what. The only why is why weren’t you there?
The 2015 RISC OS London Show took place on 24th October, 2015 – and while the number of visitors was (I believe) just shy of 110, there were plenty of RISC OS users unable to attend. So what did they miss?
