Dude, where’s your Privacy Policy?

Having just published an item concerning GDPR, this may be a good opportunity to pre-empt an obvious question and explain why RISCOSitory currently has no Privacy Policy published on the website. The simple answer is that the site does not collect any personally identifiable information (with the exception of IP addresses in site logs, handled […]

Administrivia: RISCOSitory opening up for reviews

You write ’em and send ’em, and I may put ’em online. Until now, RISCOSitory has not carried product reviews. The main reason for this is that the site is run with no financial reward – only costs. As such, I didn’t want to commit to spending even more time working on the site than […]

Bunker closing for holidays and shows

Well, mostly, anyway. It may be open sporadically. Both the Recursion Computer Science Fair and the RISC OS Southwest Show are almost upon us, and my own annual holiday is even more imminent, so it is time to declare the RISCOSitory Bunker closed for a short period.

Introducing the ‘news nybble’ – an experimental new post format for RISCOSitory

A change is as good as a rest, and boy do I need a rest! A perennial problem faced here in the bunker is one of time – the one most people will understand: A lack of it. Busy periods have become more and more frequent, and seem to go on for longer, and during […]

The RISCOSitory Bunker will be closed until 5th May, 2015

The provisional date on which normal operations are set to resume is 5th May, 2015 – the first working day after […]

New year (sort of) changes at RISCOSitory

Change your mind site; nothing ever stays the same. It’s once again time to make some changes here at RISCOSitory. The keen-eyed readers will already have noticed the first change – which is that, following a change to the site’s appearance earlier this year, it has now reverted to something similar to how it was […]

It’s catch-up time!

A long break means a large back-log. Oh well. :/ Readers of RISCOSitory will undoubtedly have noticed that, over the last few months, there has been very little posted on the site. Apart from three posts in late November, and about half a dozen in mid December, RISCOSitory has fallen silent since the 2012 London […]

Changes are afoot at RISCOSitory.com

That’s the way the cookie crumbles. From Tuesday, 1st May, 2012, the policy for user comments on RISCOSitory.com is changing, and Google adverts will be disappearing. Previously, any user who wished to comment on an article needed to sign in to post their comment – which, obviously, meant they first needed to register with the […]

All quiet on the RISCOSitory front

It can’t have escaped people’s notice that almost three weeks have passed with nothing new appearing on RISCOSitory – despite a number of posts appearing on other sites, such as The Icon Bar and The RISC OS Blog. The simple reason for this is that I’ve been doing some redecorating and reorganising at home, leaving […]
