Users in the Southampton area will have the opportunity to meet up on the evening of Tuesday, 16th January, in their usual venue, the Sports Centre of Itchen College. The group’s normal meeting day is the second Tuesday of the month, which should have meant the 9th – but a week’s delay was necessary because of the College opening times over the holiday period.

Other than the off-schedule date, the usual arrangements apply: Continue reading »

That one time per year when non-members are definitely not welcome!

It’s the time of year when the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club holds their Annual General Meeting, at which they deal with group administrative issues, such as electing their committee for the year ahead, and discuss the future of the club and how it is run. Unlike the other meetings held throughout the year, therefore, this one is for members only.

For members who wish to attend (and non-members to avoid) the time and place to be (or not, as appropriate) is Monday, 3rd January, 2018, with a 7:45pm start-time, at the West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club, Sandal Hall Close, Off Walton Lane, Wakefield, WF2 6ER.

Normal service will resume from the next meeting again, which takes place on 7th February, with Tom Williamson from Ident Computer scheduled to be the guest speaker.

*They did not actually say this. It’s the group’s informal Christmas meal!

The December meeting for the RISC OS User Group of London takes place on Monday, 18th December – a date that necessitates a couple of slight changes to the normal monthly proceedings.

The meeting takes place in the usual venue – the Blue-Eyed Maid – but being a so close to Christmas, there is high seasonal demand for space in the restaurant, so the expectation is to meet in the bar downstairs for a more informal meeting. Continue reading »

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.

Also: There will be mince pies. (Hmm… should this have been the headline?)

The December meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club takes place on the 6th – that’s this Wednesday – and Tony Bartram of AMCOG Games will be the guest speaker, discussing the art of writing games and producing the necessary audio-visual effects with RISC OS. All of AMCOG’s games to date will be demonstrated, including an in-development first person perspective zombie game, and RDSP – Tony’s sound synthesis engine.

WROCC members can attend the meeting for free (there is a small fee for any non-members who wish to attend), which takes place at:

West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,
Sandal Hall Close (off Walton Lane),
Wakefield, WF2 6ER.
