The perfect computer for anyone who likes Airfix models. Or Ikea furniture.

A name not many people in the RISC OS world will have heard of until very recently is Ident Computer, run by Shrewsbury-based Tom Williamson. Tom founded his company, the Ident Broadcasting & Communications Group, in 2006, and Ident Computer is a comparatively recent addition to the group, with the aim of preserving and exhibiting retro computers, and to aid and build new resources for education and entertainment.

The phone number for CJE Micro’s and 4D has changed, and the old number will be discontinued soon. The new number is +44 (0)1903 523 222 – so if you don’t have that in your address books (or Organizer!), you need to update it pronto.

The fax number will also be changing in the very near future. Currently +44 (0)1903 523 679, from 9th July, the number you’ll need in your address books (or Organizer!) is +44 (0)1903 213 901.

The main email addresses remain unchanged, for sales, support and 4D.

Coming soon: Two announcements!

In a very meta-move, Chris Evans has announced that there will soon be two more announcements from CJE Micro’s. Well, more specifically, he’s announced that CJE Micro’s will be launching two new products at the Southwest Show tomorrow, and referred people to separate announcements to find out more – presumably, they’ll either appear later today (which might make them too late for RISCOSitory this side of the show), or he’ll be announcing them at the show, with online announcements after the event.

Either way, one good way to find out more is, of course, to head on down to the show itself.

Go on. You know you want to.

That’s just seven days – so few you can count ’em on the fingers of, er, one and a bit hands!

In a week’s time, a large contingent of the RISC OS community – hardware and software developers, businesses, hobbyist programmers and, of course, general users – will be converging on a hotel in a rather nice setting on the Mendip Hills for the first main event of the year: RISC OS Southwest, organised by R-Comp‘s Andrew Rawnsley and Orpheus Internet‘s Richard Brown.

The hotel is, of course, the Webbington, which has hosted the Southwest Show since its inception in 1998, and the doors will be open to the public from 10:30 until 4:00pm, with an entry fee of (I believe – it isn’t specified on the show website) £5.00. Continue reading »

Note, that was “Pah!” not “Bah!” – and there was no sign of a “Humbug!”

Black Friday – the day following Thanksgiving in the Untidy States of Overpuddle, and which has become recognised as the first day of the Christmas shopping season on which many large retailers hold promotional sales – was yesterday. Well, mostly1.

Today is therefore Random Colour Saturday. Continue reading »

But only of some items, silly!

With the London Show looming, Chris Evans has made the shock revelation that CJE Micro’s has run out of stock… of some items! Chris says the company can recycle old Acorn and RISC OS gear “in the best possible way, by finding someone who wants to use them for their original purpose.”

A full list of items wanted can be found on the CJE Micro’s website, and they expect to have “an estate car full of space available” for the trip to the show, which takes place on Saturday, 29th October – but asks that people get in touch beforehand if they are bringing a large volume. Cash is offered for some of the more valuable items, but – again – please get in touch with the company beforehand to negotiate a price.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…1

Emphasising their support of everything-Acorn and RISC OS going all the way back to the 8-bit hardware on which many of us cut our teeth, CJE Micro’s have made an announcement in the run up to the Wakefield Show (this Saturday, 25th April, 2015) that covers products for the BBC Micro, more recent (24 year old) A5000 computers, and brings us up to date with the new IGEPv5-based computer with no name.
