If you’re a RISC OS user in the Southampton area, then Tuesday, 8th May is the date you need to note down – for that is when your local user group next gets together. The meeting, which runs from 7:00pm until 9:00pm, is free to attend – and you can bring along any hardware or software you wish to show off, try out, seek help with, or whatever.

The place to be is the Sports Centre of Itchen College – head for the College Centre, an open area with tables and chairs by the Sports Centre Reception desk – Deacon Road, Southampton.

The next meeting for RISC OS users in and around Southampton will take place on Tuesday, 10th April. As ever, admission is free and anyone is welcome to come along – and there will be at least one small network of RISC OS computers, hopefully with a connection to the internet.

The venue, as usual, is the Sports Centre of Itchen College – look out for the College Centre, an open area with tables and chairs next to the Sports Centre Reception desk. The College car park is accessed from Deacon Road, opposite Whites Road.

Users in the Southampton area will have the opportunity to meet up on the evening of Tuesday, 16th January, in their usual venue, the Sports Centre of Itchen College. The group’s normal meeting day is the second Tuesday of the month, which should have meant the 9th – but a week’s delay was necessary because of the College opening times over the holiday period.

Other than the off-schedule date, the usual arrangements apply: Continue reading »

Mark Tuesday, 12th December in your diaries if you are a RISC OS user within shouting distance of Southampton, because that’s when the next meeting takes place for users in that area. Those who attend the meeting are welcome to bring along any hardware or software to discuss with the group. There will be at least one small network of RISC OS computers, and an internet connection – and it’s a stroke of luck that this is December, the same month in which Christmas falls, because there will be a demonstration of at least one piece of festive hardware!

The group meets in the Sports Centre of Itchen College, Deacon Road, Southampton – in the College Centre, the open area with tables and chairs adjacent to the Sports Centre Reception. The car park is accessed from Deacon Road, opposite Whites Road. The meeting takes place from 7:00pm until 9:00pm, and there is no admission fee.

Last month it was usual time, different place – will both differ next month?

The Southampton RISC OS Users Group will be holding it’s next meeting on Wednesday (oops…) Tuesday, 8th August – in the usual venue, but not at the usual time.

The group normally meets in the Itchen College Sports Centre (unless pesky student exhibitions dictate otherwise) at around 7:00pm, but this month the meeting is scheduled for 6:45pm – and while the meetings usually run until 9:00pm, this one is scheduled to end at 8:30pm. Continue reading »

Venue a highly guarded secret, revealed only to those who know the code1

The Southampton RISC OS Users Group normally meets in the Itchen College Sports Centre, but there is a change of venue for their July meeting – to a top secret location, the actual address of which is a highly guarded secret1.

Why is this? Perhaps it’s because someone from Southampton attended ROUGOL‘s June meeting, the subject of which was Cryptography and Security, and developed an unhealthy sense of paranoia as a result – after all, they really ARE out to get you – and has since bought a lifetime’s supply of tinfoil hats, etc. Continue reading »
