The website may be gone, but the Twitter feed lives on!

Some people may have noticed that the RISCOScode website has disappeared. During a brief discussion on comp.sys.acorn.misc, Chris Evans reported that the site’s owner, Martin Hansen, had made the decision to ‘retire’ the site in order to “free up time for other RISC OS projects.”

However, that retirement isn’t all that it seems! Continue reading »

A last minute round-up before the bunker is sealed off for a few days!

Later today, the RISCOSitory/Soft Rock Software bunker will be sealed and secured shut while I disappear into the middle of nowhere for my annual mid-February break. Hopefully, there will be no kind of apocalyptic event while I’m away, so the bunker should be open for business again from next weekend.

Celebrating the best of the RISC OS world!

Picking up the baton from those who have carried out RISC OS awards polls in the past – the Acorn press of old, followed by the Drobe, Icon Bar and RISCOScode websites – RISCOSitory is pleased to announce that it is conducting an awards poll to cover both 2012 and 2013.

The poll – which will be combined with a simple survey to form a picture of the RISC OS landscape – will take place on its own website and, in time, the aim will be to archive the results of previous polls on that site, so that they can always be found in one place.

So point your browsers at the RISC OS Awards website and take a look through the nominations for the first RISCOSitory annual awards poll.

A voting form will appear in mid-December and will remain online for three to four weeks, with the results being published some time in January 2014.

Something lacking from the tail end of last year was any kind of awards poll on any of the RISC OS news and information websites. Until its switch from active publishing to ‘archive’ mode, Drobe traditionally held an awards poll, and then The Icon Bar picked up the baton – until last year.

This year, RISCOScode has taken on the task. Continue reading »
