A round-up of 2017 news that could have been reported on at the time if people had only sent it this way!

With 2017 now behind us, looking back over the RISCOSitory posts for the year might leave people thinking there has been very little activity in the RISC OS world – but in fact it merely means there have been very few posts on the site over the course of the year. This, sadly, is a reflection of the amount of news submitted to RISCOSitory by developers etc, more than anything else, with their news being posted elsewhere.

So, over the last few weeks, I’ve been scouring forums and feeds that have gone unread due to a lack of spare time, and where something has jumped out at me as something I might have reported on, I’ve rounded it up in the snippets post below. Continue reading »

A last minute round-up before the bunker is sealed off for a few days!

Later today, the RISCOSitory/Soft Rock Software bunker will be sealed and secured shut while I disappear into the middle of nowhere for my annual mid-February break. Hopefully, there will be no kind of apocalyptic event while I’m away, so the bunker should be open for business again from next weekend.

In the meantime, I’ve had a last minute catch-up on my reading, and found a few things worth mentioning in a final round-up before I set off. Continue reading »

For those who have yet to read it, The Icon Bar – a site that once upon a time saw regular news and features posted to it, and seems to be starting to do so again – has this weekend published an interview with Jeffrey Lee.

Jeffrey, as every RISC OS user should know, puts a remarkable amount of effort into the operating system, and has been heavily involved in bringing it to some of the newer platforms we now enjoy. Not entirely surprisingly, therefore, he has also won Best Overall Contributor in the RISC OS Awards for the last two years running.

Round up, round up; news in a very late style. (That was what China Crisis sang, wasn’t it?)

The bunker has been engulfed in chaos for quite a while – with a heavy workload leading to a period of hectic and frantic headless chicken impersonations. On top of that, a partial change of platforms has been undertaken, with some work being migrated from Windows (grr, spit, hiss) to Linux – and being completely new to Linux, that has meant adding a bit of self-education into the mix, not to mention that the installation didn’t go entirely smoothly!

However, today there is a brief lapse in the chaos, so how about a round-up of some news over the several months that wasn’t dealt with as individual items? Continue reading »

Can I stop being so busy now, please? Pretty please? Aw, go on…

Observant readers will no doubt have noticed a low post count on RISCOSitory since the Southwest Show – a grand total of eight, in fact, including the show report itself, and this year’s April Fool. As is often the case, this is because I’ve been too busy to devote time to this site (or anything RISC OS-related in general). Continue reading »
