In a break to the regular schedule, the January meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) – which is customarily the group’s annual general meeting – will be a regular meeting, with a guest speaker, and to which you are all invited.

Matthew Phillips of Sine Nomine Software will be talking to the group about the various RISC OS products they have available, such as mapping application RiscOSM, and related packages like Recce, to the powerful relational database Impact, and its related packages like ImpEmail. Those in attendance will be able to ask questions about the software – and will undoubtedly discover tips and receive advice on how to get the best out of them.

As with most meetings of 2020, this first Wakefield meeting of 2021 will be held online, using the Zoom video conferencing system. It will take place on Wednesday, 6th January, starting at 7:45pm.

If you want to attend, send an email to the club – by the end of Tuesday, 5th at the latest – and you will then receive the necessary access details by email on the day of the meeting. As well as those details, you will of course need a suitable device on which to run the Zoom software, which is available for Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS, and Android, a comfortable place to sit, and suitable snacks and drinks.

Although the online meetings have been open to anyone to attend, the usual arrangements for WROCC – when meetings are in-person events, held every other month – are that members can get in for free, and non-members have to pay a small entry fee. Membership costs just £15 per year, reduced to £7.50 for the first year – so why not consider these open Zoom meetings a free trial of one aspect of one of the benefits of membership, and consider joining? Other benefits include a copy of the WROCC, the group’s monthly newsletter, delivered to your inbox as a PDF file, and access to their online discussion forum.
