Colin has visited the group before, in 2001 and in 2008, with the subject of both talks being RADAR – in particular, RISC OS-based RADAR systems. Those systems used the Iyonix and RiscPC, and ran a suite of applications that Colin helped develop at Denbridge Marine Ltd,
It’s meeting time in the Midlands this Saturday, 18th November!
With this being the Midlands User Group‘s last meeting of this year, those in attendance will be reviewing what looks to have been an exciting year for the operating system, and looking forward to 2018; discussing topics people would like to see covered at meetings, guest speakers, and so on.
The Southampton RISC OS User Group will be meeting again this coming Tuesday, 14th November, from 7:00pm until 9:00pm at:
Anyone who uses or has an interest in RISC OS is welcome – there is no admission fee – and visitors are welcome to bring along any hardware or software to show off, play with, etc.
To find the meeting, head for the College Centre, an open area with tables and chairs next to the Sports Centre Reception desk. For those coming by car, the car park entrance can be accessed from Deacon Road opposite Whites Road.
The next meeting of the Bristol RISC OS Users group will take place on Wednesday, 8th November – but not at the usual venue. This month, the group can be found in a pub a short walk away from their normal meeting place. The meeting will be held at The Eldon House pub, which can be found at:
The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club will next meet on Wednesday, 1st November, at 7:45pm, when Ruth Gunstone will be the group’s speaker, covering the use of a Raspberry Pi as a Network Attached Storage device, and as a media player. The meeting is free for members, and a mere £3.00 for guests, and takes place at:
Sandal Hall Close,
Off Walton Lane,
To talk about his Knight of the Round
David Ruck – aka Druck in online circles – will be the RISC OS User Group of London‘s next guest speaker. David is very well known in the Acorn and RISC OS worlds; he has been on the committee The ARM Club for many years (and Chairman for a good many of those), and is responsible for a number of RISC OS software titles.
The next meeting for RISC OS users in the Southampton area will take place on Tuesday, 10th October. The meeting runs from 7:00pm until 9:00pm and takes place at:
The group meets in the open area with tables and chairs, which is next to the Sports Centre Reception desk, and the car park is accessed from Deacon Road, opposite Whites Road.
There is no admission fee, and anyone is welcome to pay the group a visit, and bring along anything you wish to show off or discuss. There will be at least one network of RISC OS computers with an internet connection.
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.
Meetings are open to members and non-members alike (with the latter paying an attendance fee of £3.00 – but check out the benefits of joining) and the meeting takes place from 7:45pm at:
Sandal Hall Close, off Walton Lane,

the Mack Tribbeck!1
Back in the 1990s and early 2000s, a name you will have almost certainly seen in the Acorn and RISC OS world was Jason Tribbeck.
In the early 1990s, Jason was a developer for Vertical Twist/VTi, a company that produced a number of upgrades and add-ons for Acorn computers, including a SCSI interface, and a sound sampler that connected to the parallel printer port. Argonet was formed in the mid-1990s, and Jason developed some of the software supplied to its users for internet connectivity, including the Voyager launcher application, and usenet reader Newsagent.
Hardware, of course, includes the Titanium motherboard, designed from the outset with RISC OS in mind, while software includes Elesar’s own CloudFS and LOOKSystems’ Font Directory Pro.
