Tomorrow evening, 16th April, is when the RISC OS User Group of London next meets, and the guest speaker will be Clive Semmens, talking on the subject of his time working and playing with ARM processors. Clive’s first encounter with the processor was when he purchased an Archimedes for a classroom in Stornoway, in the Outer Hebrides, and some thirty years later he is still using them, having retired as a Senior Technical Author for ARM in 2007.

Admission to the meeting, which kicks off at 7:45pm, is free. Head for the restaurant upstairs at The Blue Eyed Maid, 173 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1HR. Full details of the venue, how to get there, and so on, can be found on ROUGOL’s website.

The next meeting for RISC OS users in and around Southampton will take place on Tuesday, 10th April. As ever, admission is free and anyone is welcome to come along – and there will be at least one small network of RISC OS computers, hopefully with a connection to the internet.

The venue, as usual, is the Sports Centre of Itchen College – look out for the College Centre, an open area with tables and chairs next to the Sports Centre Reception desk. The College car park is accessed from Deacon Road, opposite Whites Road.
