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 »

…where your prescription is one tablet per… well, just one, and that’s all you’ll need, actually.

It’s unlikely that anybody in RISC OS land has failed to notice the rise in popularity of tablet computing. Tablet and touchscreen devices have been around for a while, but (mobile phones aside) had failed to impact on the computing world in any noticeable way until Apple launched their iPad, and other devices started appearing based on Google’s Android operating system. In most cases, these tablet computers run on one of a number of ARM based processors – which owe their very existence to Acorn Computers, the company that developed the ARM processor in the first place, put it in a desktop computer, and wrote an operating system to use it.

Recognising that there was a circle in need of completion here, R-Comp has brought us one step closer to doing just that by announcing the latest addition to their product range, which will be seeing its debut at the Wakefield Show, this coming Saturday, 28th April, 2012. Continue reading »
