A now customary arrangement for RISC OS shows, Elesar Ltd – Rob Sprowson’s operation that has brought us the Titanium motherboard, a 105-key mechanical keyboard with red function keys, and software such as CloudFS – is once again offering a click and collect option in time for the upcoming show.Continue reading “Elesar Ltd again opens click and collect option for Wakefield”
It is time once again for RISC OS users to make their annual pilgrimage oop north!
This year’s Wakefield Show will take place on Saturday, 27th April – a day shy of two weeks from now – so as I type this, all the exhibitors will be heading into their final fortnight of relaxation, able to put their feet up having prepared everything for the show long in advance.
No, of course, they won’t! For most exhibitors the next couple of weeks will probably see them at their busiest, adding the final touches to the latest versions of their products, discovering problems and making more final touches, before finding even more problems that need fixing, frantically working into the night and not getting enough sleep, as the clock counts down until the point where they have to head for:Continue reading “Time to get ready for your trip to Wakefield”
And in a new, easier to reach venue, so you now have one excuse fewer if you don’t come!
As of today, it is now just one week until the 2019 Southwest Show, which takes takes place on Saturday, 16th February – in a new, more accessible venue in Bristol. The change of venue has been known about for some time, but even as late as a few days ago, I saw a comment expressing surprise, so dealing with that important point first, the new location is:
The Arnos Manor Hotel,
470 Bath Road,
Bristol, BS4 3HQ.
That’s last year’s record for a long-delayed show report broken!
This year’s Wakefield Show took place on 21st April, at the Cedar Court Hotel, organised by the local user group – the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC).
Like last year, I must apologise for another long-delayed RISCOSitory show report. As ever, this is mainly because of how busy I am outside the world of RISC OS, but also because I wanted to edit down my video recordings of the theatre talks to a more manageable length – and video editing can take a lot of time.Continue reading “Show report: Wakefield 2018”
Courtesy of Leo White, the five talks from the RISC OS London Show 2018 are now available to watch on YouTube. So, in the order they were listed on the show programme, here they are:Continue reading “London Show: The talks”
As everyone in RISC OS land should know by now, this year’s London Show will take place tomorrow at the St Giles Hotel in Feltham. With my exhibitor hat on, I get very busy in the run up to a show – and I also deal with trying to get any last minute news posted here before the show takes place.
But, as ever, it depends largely on the news being sent to me in the first place – not all of it is. With that in mind, I’ve done a quick scan of the comp.sys.acorn.announce usenet group, and the most recent posts on the RISC OS Open Ltd (ROOL) forums, to see if there is anything else to mention. And there is…Continue reading “London Show snippets”
CJE Micro’s and 4D will once again be exhibiting at the London Show and expect to have plenty of goodies on display, such as small HDMI monitors, the pi-topRO 2 Pi-based laptop, the 4D/Simon Inns Econet Clock, and a new IDE Podule (details of which to be announced RSN), and much more.
However, the company will be getting to the show by car, which means there will be limited available space to carry stock – so if you have anything specific you wish to buy from them at the show, please give them a call on 01903 523 222 before Friday lunchtime.
By this time next Saturday, most visitors to the London Show will be either at home or heading there having chatted to any number of people, from fellow visitors and enthusiasts, to the various hardware and software developers, and even hobbyists, manning stands. They will know all about the latest news and developments that are to be revealed at the show.Continue reading “London Show: Theatre talks, hints, and more”
