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”

Chris Evans recently initiated discussions on the RISC OS Open forum and the comp.sys.acorn.misc usenet group about the possibility of moving RISC OS shows away from their current ‘real world’ space, and into the online world – taking them virtual.

The Blue-Eyed Maid (upstairs in the restaurant),
173 Borough High Street,
