A new version of Organizer, the – no, THE – personal information manager for RISC OS, will be launched at the London Show, which takes place tomorrow. The headline feature in this new version is the ability to password protect the application, and to encrypt your data – adding a level of data security that those wishing to access their data from a cloud-based storage location.

Offering a good level of flexibility, a passphrase needed to run the software can be set in Choices, and encryption is a second option, which can be applied to the data in some or all of the various sections.

As everyone in RISC OS land should know by now, this year’s London Show will take place tomorrow at the St Giles Hotel in Feltham. With my exhibitor hat on, I get very busy in the run up to a show – and I also deal with trying to get any last minute news posted here before the show takes place.

But, as ever, it depends largely on the news being sent to me in the first place – not all of it is. With that in mind, I’ve done a quick scan of the comp.sys.acorn.announce usenet group, and the most recent posts on the RISC OS Open Ltd (ROOL) forums, to see if there is anything else to mention. And there is…

Better late than never, but not as late as last year – so that’s something, right?

This year’s Southwest Show took place on Saturday, 24th February, at the Webbington Hotel and Spa – the same venue at which it has been held every year since its inception. This year’s show was therefore the 21st, marking twenty years since the very first one, held in February 1998. There was therefore cake – which you missed out on if you didn’t come to the show, and which everyone who was present enjoyed. And so ends this show report: That’s all you need to know, really.

Oh, you want a little more detail? Oh well, if you insist… Continue reading »

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… Continue reading »

Seven months on? This must be some kind of a record!

The RISC OS Southwest Show this year took place on 25th February – so this show report sets quite a record for the time between the event and its appearance at just under seven months. Unfortunately, this is a reflection of the amount of time I’ve had available in that intervening period to sit down and write the report. Which is to say: very little.

To make matters slightly worse, I usually refer to the photos I’ve taken at the show as a means to remind myself of who was there, what they were demonstrating, and so on – and this year, I forgot to take my camera. I did take a few pictures with my phone, but I really don’t like my phone as a camera (it’s perfectly capable, it’s just the way it has to be held, etc.) and therefore only have a few pictures.
