Mark Tuesday, 12th December in your diaries if you are a RISC OS user within shouting distance of Southampton, because that’s when the next meeting takes place for users in that area. Those who attend the meeting are welcome to bring along any hardware or software to discuss with the group. There will be at least one small network of RISC OS computers, and an internet connection – and it’s a stroke of luck that this is December, the same month in which Christmas falls, because there will be a demonstration of at least one piece of festive hardware!

The group meets in the Sports Centre of Itchen College, Deacon Road, Southampton – in the College Centre, the open area with tables and chairs adjacent to the Sports Centre Reception. The car park is accessed from Deacon Road, opposite Whites Road. The meeting takes place from 7:00pm until 9:00pm, and there is no admission fee.

Tomorrow night – Wednesday, 4th October – Mike Cook will be the guest speaker at the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club‘s October meeting, with the subject being “Another year of random projects.” Mike was last listed as the group’s guest speaker in February 2016, so that should perhaps be “Another year and a half…” – but either way, he should have plenty to tell the group.
