Phil Pemberton on software preservation, Andy Marks on RISCOSbits

The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) will next meet up on Wednesday, 3rd March, when there will be two guest speakers talking to the group.

Phil Pemberton will speak first, and will be looking at the subject of software preservation, covering both the 8 and 32-bit platforms. He will address the efforts involved in doing this, how end users can help, and the low-cost tools and free software needed, as well as highlight the ongoing work of the Acorn Preservation Team.

The second speaker will be Andy Marks from RISCOSbits, who will be showing off some of the new hardware and software he’s been working on over the past year, including the new FOURtress system.

The meeting will once again be held online, and anyone who has an interest is welcome to attend. All you need is a device capable of running the Zoom video conferencing software, your favourite armchair (other chairs may well be available), and a suitable supply of snacks and drinks.

Oh, and the meeting access details – if you contact WROCC by the end of Tuesday, 2nd March, you will receive those at some point during the day on Wednesday, in plenty of time to log-in to the meeting, which kicks off at 7:45pm.
