Kevin Wells has released an update to his application for looking up information about MAC addresses – the unique identifiers assigned to network interfaces. The new version of MACadd can be downloaded from his website, and fixes a silly typo (the word Company was incorrectly spelt).
The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) will take place on Monday, 20th May – tomorrow evening – and this month rather than a formal speaker, the meeting will take the form of an open discussion. Attendees will be able to hold general discussions about RISC OS and recent news, and undoubtedly those who were able to attend last month’s Wakefield Show will be able to regale those who weren’t with news of what they saw.Continue reading “Informal meeting in London – 20th May”
Encouraging people to be as flashy as he is when his boss isn’t around!
Observant readers and show visitors will have noticed that Andrew Conroy has started occasionally having his own presence at RISC OS computer shows – when CJE Micro’s, the company for which he works, isn’t present. What he exhibits is a range of personal projects interfacing with the Raspberry Pi.Continue reading “Andrew Conroy releases BASIC library for the Raspberry Pi JAM HAT”
For the benefit of those who either couldn’t make it to the recent Wakefield Show – or who were there exhibiting, so were busy manning their stands – Ruth Gunstone has now put her recordings of the talks on YouTube. The talks were as follows:
- Andrew Rawnsley, talking on behalf of R-Comp/R-Comp Interactive, and RISC OS Developments.
- Rob Sprowson, talking on behalf of RISC OS Open Ltd.
- Matthew Phillips, talking on behalf of Sine Nomine.
- Tom Williamson, talking on behalf of WiFi Sheep and Ident Computers.
- Chris Evans, talking on behalf of CJE Micro’s and 4D.
Sunday evenings usually sees a Wi-Fi Sheep ‘8 ’till Late’ program broadcast on Twitch, and the 5th May program was an AMCOG Games special. The broadcast featured some two hours of game play, demonstrating many of AMCOG’s games.
The program can now be watched on YouTube – and if you haven’t yet purchased any of those games (or a particular title), it could be worth a look. The games featured are Xeroid, Protector, Legends of Magic, Mop Tops, Island of the Undead, Stunt Drivers, Escape from the Arcase, and from the AMCOG Development Kit, Cyborg, Mutant Penguin, and Sparky.
The latest addition to the AMCOG Games catalogue was initially launched at the recent Wakefield Show, and it is now available to buy from !Store for just £10.99. That game is Escape from the Arcade – something you wouldn’t have to do if you didn’t get trapped inside an arcade machine, and that happened because you chose to play a faulty machine. Oops. Damn those dimensional faults – and damn your foolish ignorance of the warning sign!Continue reading “Escape from the Arcade now available from !Store”
Fred Graute has released version 2.09 of Transient, a utility designed to present an easy to access, temporary storage location on your hard drive – but one that is, er, less transient than the RAM drive, as the files stored there don’t disappear when the computer is shut down. The program creates a new subdirectory each day, and anything saved within is kept until you choose to delete them – or, if you choose the Logan’s Run option, until they reach a certain age.Continue reading “Transient becomes more robust with version 2.09”
Kevin Wells has released a new version of MACadd, his application for looking up and displaying public information about MAC addresses, giving it a bigger address field, and rather than the country code, it now displays the country name. It also now benefits from the addition of interactive help.
The Southampton RISC OS User Group will next meet on Tuesday, 14th May, from 7:00pm until 9:00pm, in the Sports Centre of Itchen College, Deacon Road, Southampton. As ever, the meeting is free to attend, and everyone is welcome – bring along any software or hardware you wish to show off, etc. There will be at least one RISC OS network, hopefully with internet access.
The car park can be found on Deacon Road, opposite Whites Road, and you need to head for the College Centre, an open area with tables and chairs next to the Sports Centre Reception.
Well, the wider RISC OS world, anyway!
Initially available at the Wakefield Show as part of his CD software collection, proceeds from which go to a good cause, it is now possible to download Steve Fryatt’s, erm, application launcher application, Launcher! The software can be downloaded either from Steve’s own website, or via !Store.Continue reading “Steve Fryatt launches Launcher to the wider world”
