Nearly missed it – I really need a news address. Oh wait, I do have one!

The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club takes place tonight – Wednesday, 2nd November – and this month Steve Fryatt will be talking about Ovation, the DTP package originally written by David Pilling. Not to be confused with its younger ‘Pro’ sibbling – which is used to create the club’s monthly newsletter – Ovation is now available for free, with the source code available, and further work has been done on it by Rick Murray.

The meeting starts at 7:45pm, and takes place at the West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club, Sandall Hall Close (off Walton Lane), (A61) Barnsley Road, Sandal, Wakefield, WF2 6ER. For non-members there is a £3.00 entry fee – but it’s worth investigating the benefits of membership.

Like this one! Continue reading »
