People using the RISC OS platform back in the days of Acorn Computers will remember the names of a number of people who worked for Acorn, one of whom will undoubtedly be Chris Cox.
On Tuesday the 12th of February, RISC OS users in and around Southampton will again have the opportunity to meet up and chat about RISC OS, show of any software or hardware to fellow users, seek help with any problems, and so on.
That’s the date of the next Southampton RISC OS User Group meeting, which will take place between 7:00pm and 9:00pm, at the Sports Centre of Itchen College (head for the College Centre, an open area with tables and chairs, next to the Sports Centre Reception), Deacon Road, Southampton.
Amongst other things, Andy hopes to have with him a working PineBook (aka ARMbook), running RISC OS, along with a number of other ‘portable’ solutions for people to compare – from laptops such as the Pi-Top and Lapdock, to an easy-to-transport mini.m with one of RISCOSbits’ own eSATA docks.
RISC OS Users in the Southampton area have their next opportunity to meet on Tuesday, 15th January – with the meeting running from 7:00pm until 9:00pm in the Sports Centre of Itchen College, Deacon Road, Southampton – head for the College Centre, the open area with tables and chairs adjacent to the Sports Centre Reception desk.
Anyone attending the meeting is welcome to bring along any hardware or software you want to show off to the others there, or to seek help with, and so on. There is usually at least one small network of RISC OS computers, and hopefully internet connectivity.
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) takes place on Wednesday 9th January, starting at around 7:00-7:30pm (though some of us may arrive earlier) and continuing until closing time.
The meeting will once again take place at:
If you’re a member, and if you can find them, maybe you can visit… the AGM!
It’s the time of year when the most formally (read: properly) run user group in the world of RISC OS holds a meeting it labels as members only: It’s time for the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club‘s Annual General Meeting.
This is the opportunity for members to review the Club’s activities, and so on, for the year that has just passed, and to have a say on the Club’s future, by electing the committee for 2019 will be elected.
The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London will take place on Monday, 17th December – but rather than a normal meeting, with a guest speaker, this last meeting before Christmas has instead been scheduled as the group’s informal Christmas Meal.
This is because the normal venue for ROUGOL’s meetings, the upstairs restaurant in the Blue-Eyed Maid, tends to be in high demand at this time of year. Therefore, the group may have to meet downstairs, in the bar – making it an ideal opportunity for those attending to discuss what has happened in the RISC OS World over the course of 2018, as well as what they hope and expect to happen in the coming year.
What? Festivities already? But it’s still 55 weeks until Christmas!
The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) is to be held on Wednesday, 5th December, at:
West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close (Off Walton Lane),
Tony only became a RISC OS user a few years ago, released his first game for the platform in 2015. Since then he has built up quite a catalogue of titles, covering several different genres, with the latest addition being a top-down racing game called Stunt Drivers.
