According to the latest issue of Archive Magazine and the Big Ben Club‘s website, the club’s RISC OS Experience will be taking place this year on May 12th, at District Building “The Vuister”, Molenwerf 44, 1541 WR Koog aan de Zaan, Amsterdam. Directions and a map can be found on their website, including a floorplan of the building, which suggests “The Vuister” is the room in which the event is to be held. Admission will be free, and refreshments available at a reasonable price. There is free parking and a train station nearby, with a bus stop at the entrance.

There are no details yet of participants or a programme of events, but referencing last year, the site says “Last year 50 to 70 people visited the show – a lot of visitors had their system with them.”

Those results are now online on the RISC OS Awards website and the various winners have been notified – where possible – by email. Continue reading »

Just don’t mention the acronym in polite company, mkay?

A newly registered domain and associated website has popped up, apparently through which its owner – Andy Marks – intends to sell of his collection of Acorn and RISC OS Spares and Extras. (I did say not to mention the acronym in polite company, didn’t I? Oh, yes, I did.) Continue reading »
