My calculator doesn’t seem to like that calculation, but it’s definitely right.

Following last month’s offer of five games for the price of none when purchasing a Titanium motherboard, October sees another piece of software up for grabs from Elesar Ltd when purchasing their flagship product. This time, the offer is for a free full copy of RISC OS Open Ltd‘s Desktop Development Environment. The DDE (which is how it’s known to its friends) is normally priced at £50 including VAT, and includes a C compiler, ARM assembler, GUI resource editor, and more.

To take advantage of the offer, simply pop along to the Elesar Ltd shop page, and on the Titanium + RISC OS product page click on the ‘EH-008-9’ link in the product description to reach the bundle product page, and order from there – and when the product arrives and you’ve put the board in a suitable case, etc, get programming for RISC OS!
