Recursion comes around again!

The Midlands User Group normally meets on the third Saturday of odd months, but July is a particularly odd month because this year they’re meeting on the first Saturday instead.

It used to be that the group hosted their own RISC OS show in early July, and treated that as their meeting for the month – and that’s more or less what they still do, with the exception that their show is now a small area within a much bigger event that covers a great deal more than just RISC OS.

That show is the Recursion Computer Science Fair, which takes place on Saturday, 1st July, from 11:00am – with no entry fee – at: Continue reading »

Also to discuss Recursion 2016. Also to dis… oh, wait, no – that’d be repetition, not recursion.

The Midland User Group‘s next meeting will feature Tom Williamson from Ident Computer as its guest speaker.

To be or not to be? To be, to be – obviously!

Over the last few years, the Midsummer Midlands MUG Show became so excruciatingly small that for the last couple of years (2014, 2013) the visitor numbers have only just been in the twenties – and last year the decision was made that there wouldn’t be a show at all this year.

Time for a good dollop of ketchup… erm, I mean, time to catch up!

As ever, the result of devoting time to getting ready for a RISC OS show means putting other work to one side to deal with after – which therefore means I tend to be busy after the show, leading to a lack of updates to RISCOSitory (an effect worsened when the show happens to fall at the start of what is going to be a busy period anyway, as some do).

So the best way to deal with that?

A ‘Snippets’ post catching up on things and bringing the site back up to date! That’ll be this, then, starting with some event news. Continue reading »
