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.

Having visited the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) twice before, Dr Colin Wright will be the group’s guest speaker again on Monday, 20th November, 2017.

Tomorrow night – Wednesday, 4th October – Mike Cook will be the guest speaker at the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club‘s October meeting, with the subject being “Another year of random projects.” Mike was last listed as the group’s guest speaker in February 2016, so that should perhaps be “Another year and a half…” – but either way, he should have plenty to tell the group.

Meetings are open to members and non-members alike (with the latter paying an attendance fee of £3.00 – but check out the benefits of joining) and the meeting takes place from 7:45pm at:

West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club,

Return of the Mack Tribbeck!1

Back in the 1990s and early 2000s, a name you will have almost certainly seen in the Acorn and RISC OS world was Jason Tribbeck.

In the early 1990s, Jason was a developer for Vertical Twist/VTi, a company that produced a number of upgrades and add-ons for Acorn computers, including a SCSI interface, and a sound sampler that connected to the parallel printer port. Argonet was formed in the mid-1990s, and Jason developed some of the software supplied to its users for internet connectivity, including the Voyager launcher application, and usenet reader Newsagent.
