As this year’s Wakefield Show drew near, news emerged of a new company – RISC OS Developments Ltd – formed by R-Comp’s Andrew Rawnsley and Orpheus Internet’s Richard Brown, with an extra theatre slot set aside for Richard to explain why the company was set up, what it’s purpose is (to a certain extent; full details were, and still are, subject to a non-disclosure agreement), and how people could help.

A video of that talk is on YouTube: Continue reading »

Mark the last Saturday in February in your diaries for #rosw2016, folks!

Announcement from Andrew Rawnsley, 20th February 2014

It’s now just a little over a week until the SW RISC OS show at the Webbington Hotel near Weston-super-mare, just south of Bristol. The show runs from 10.30am to 4pm on Saturday 1st March. As well as a wide selection of RISC OS exhibitors, there will also be space set aside for a “bring-your-own-computer” Raspberry-Pi-style “jam”, where you’ll be able to show what you’’ve been up to, and test things out on fellow enthusiasts.

Don’t say you haven’t been given plenty of advance notice!

RISC OS South West Show

The date for the South West Show, usually the first show of the year, was initially published on this site in the 2013 Portsmouth Show report – but, in case you missed it (along with the fairly large advert1 for the show which, at the time of writing, is staring at you from the left hand side of this page), it’s set for Saturday, 1st March, 2014.

Da-na na-na na-na na-na na – Showtime!

After last year’s ‘near miss’ in the South West, when it began to look as though the usual RISC OS Show for the area wasn’t going to go ahead until new organisers stepped up at the last minute to save the day, it’s good to have a date announced in plenty of time for the 2013 show.

The 2012 show’s last minute saviours were Andrew Rawnsley of R-Comp and Richard Brown of Orpheus Internet, and the dynamic duo* have once again teamed up to organise a show for 2013, with the date having been announced and a number of exhibitors already contacted and signed up. Continue reading »
