Online WROCC meeting with Mike Cook – 7th October

      Comments Off on Online WROCC meeting with Mike Cook – 7th October

The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) will once again be brought to you via online video conferencing system Zoom, and this time around, the guest speaker will be Mike Cook, whose presentation has the title ‘Laser Quest’.

If you’ve been using the RISC OS and Acorn platforms long enough, Mike’s is a name you will undoubtedly recognise – for example from his ‘Body Building’ series, which appeared regularly in The Micro User, and began its life all the way back to the 8-bit days, and he continues to write similar material today for The Magpie, official magazine of the Raspberry Pi.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 7th October, starting at 7:45pm – and being held via Zoom means that provided you have a suitable device and internet connection, you can attend without having to take a single step outside your own front door (except perhaps to ensure you have snacks and drinks at the ready). If you wish to join the meeting, please send WROCC an email, ideally by the end of Tuesday, 6th October, in order to receive the relevant access details on the 7th.

If you haven’t used Zoom before, the software is available for the main desktop and laptop platforms, as well as mobile devices, and you can join a test meeting (consisting of you alone) to explore all the settings and make sure everything’s working correctly on your chosen device.

A WROCC membership costs just £15.00 per year (reduced to £7.50 for the first year) and in less restrictive times, when physical meetings at the Club’s chosen venue are possible, that membership grants free access, while non-members can only attend in exchange for a small entrance fee. In addition, members also receive the Club’s PDF Newsletter, the WROCC, delivered as a PDF file by email, and access to the group’s internet discussion forum – so even without those normal meetings, a membership is something well worth considering.
