ARMBook Impressions – Bristol, 11th September

The next Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) meeting will take place on Wednesday, 11th September, from around 7:30pm – and this month’s informal gathering may very well feature some interesting discussions.

Local user Chris Hall now has an ARMBook – the ARM-based laptop from Pinebook that is being sold by R-Comp with a port of RISC OS – and he is planning to bring it to the meeting. This will provide a chance for those in attendance to get a close-up look at the computer, and to find out how its owner has got on with it in the short space of time he has so far been using it.

Chris has also been working on the manual for Impression Publisher, while R-Comp’s Andrew Rawnsley has been assisting with the Impression Style tutorial, and Chris intends to bring this up in the meeting, which will undoubtedly prompt a discussion on the topic of both the manual and the application.

The meeting will take place at:

The Eldon House pub,
6 Lower Clifton Hill,
Bristol,
BS8 1BT.

The venue has a selection of real ales, as well as soft drinks for those who drive, and serves food for those who may feel peckish.

Parking is on road, but metered – so make sure you have enough change with you to feed the meter from whenever you arrive until closing time. If you are travelling by bus, look for those heading for Queens Road, The Triangle, and Park Street, all of which are just a short walk from the pub.

Anyone with an interest is welcome to come along to the group’s meetings, which are entirely informal – just a group of like-minded people meeting up every couple of months for a chat about RISC OS and related matters (and sometimes unrelated matters) over a pie and a pint.

There is also a mailing list for Bristol RISC OS Users, which anybody is welcome to join, local or otherwise.
