Kevin Wells has released another new version of his BusTimes application, bringing it up to version 1.03, with a new feature that allows you to specify a date and time for your chosen stop, allowing you to better plan ahead for your trip. Kevin has uploaded a short video to YouTube demonstrating the feature.
RISC OS Users in the Southampton area have their next opportunity to meet on Tuesday, 15th January – with the meeting running from 7:00pm until 9:00pm in the Sports Centre of Itchen College, Deacon Road, Southampton – head for the College Centre, the open area with tables and chairs adjacent to the Sports Centre Reception desk.
Anyone attending the meeting is welcome to bring along any hardware or software you want to show off to the others there, or to seek help with, and so on. There is usually at least one small network of RISC OS computers, and hopefully internet connectivity.
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) takes place on Wednesday 9th January, starting at around 7:00-7:30pm (though some of us may arrive earlier) and continuing until closing time.
The meeting will once again take place at:
If you’re a member, and if you can find them, maybe you can visit… the AGM!
It’s the time of year when the most formally (read: properly) run user group in the world of RISC OS holds a meeting it labels as members only: It’s time for the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club‘s Annual General Meeting.
This is the opportunity for members to review the Club’s activities, and so on, for the year that has just passed, and to have a say on the Club’s future, by electing the committee for 2019 will be elected.

Boase Veasey has some vector maps (with contour data) available to download for use in RiscOSM. The maps cover Ecuador, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi, Kenya, Zambia, and Israel, and have just been updated with optimisations for use with the style sheet features in the latest versions of the mapping application from Sine Nomine
Now you can tell corny jokes in other languages.
Kevin Wells has released an updated version of his cheesy joke application, DadJokes. Bringing it up to version 1.01, the new version of the application introduces a new feature, although that feature also brings a new (known) bug with it – but to balance that out slightly, Kevin has also squashed another small bug.
The software’s purpose is quite simple: It presents a random joke to the user. While chuckle-inducing, these jokes are usually very cheesy, and if not they’re very corny – but who can really tell the difference?
Although this is the first post for 2019, it’s also the last post of 2018!
It’s once again time for a round up of new releases, updates, and so on, that have somehow not made it to these pages before, with a whole bunch of news snippets from 2018.
That’s last year’s record for a long-delayed show report broken!
This year’s Wakefield Show took place on 21st April, at the Cedar Court Hotel, organised by the local user group – the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC).
Like last year, I must apologise for another long-delayed RISCOSitory show report. As ever, this is mainly because of how busy I am outside the world of RISC OS, but also because I wanted to edit down my video recordings of the theatre talks to a more manageable length – and video editing can take a lot of time.
