Amongst other things, Andy hopes to have with him a working PineBook (aka ARMbook), running RISC OS, along with a number of other ‘portable’ solutions for people to compare – from laptops such as the Pi-Top and Lapdock, to an easy-to-transport mini.m with one of RISCOSbits’ own eSATA docks.Continue reading “RISCOSbits visits WROCC – 6th February”

If you’re a member, and if you can find them, maybe you can visit… the AGM!
It’s the time of year when the most formally (read: properly) run user group in the world of RISC OS holds a meeting it labels as members only: It’s time for the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club‘s Annual General Meeting.
This is the opportunity for members to review the Club’s activities, and so on, for the year that has just passed, and to have a say on the Club’s future, by electing the committee for 2019 will be elected.Continue reading “It’s AGM time in Wakefield”
The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London will take place on Monday, 17th December – but rather than a normal meeting, with a guest speaker, this last meeting before Christmas has instead been scheduled as the group’s informal Christmas Meal.
This is because the normal venue for ROUGOL’s meetings, the upstairs restaurant in the Blue-Eyed Maid, tends to be in high demand at this time of year. Therefore, the group may have to meet downstairs, in the bar – making it an ideal opportunity for those attending to discuss what has happened in the RISC OS World over the course of 2018, as well as what they hope and expect to happen in the coming year.Continue reading “Enjoy some Christmas cheer with ROUGOL”

6 Lower Clifton Hill,
Having very recently acquired Castle Technology, and therefore the rights to RISC OS itself, RISC OS Developments Ltd has made people sit up and take notice yet again – after last year doing the same when it announced itself to the world, with the news that it had successfully secured funding for a then unspecified RISC OS project.
If you were unable to attend the RISC OS London Show, during which the company’s Richard Brown gave one of the talks – and in so doing packed the room set aside for the theatre and all but emptied the main hall – then you might want to know a little more, and you may even have a question or two. In which case, why not pop along to the next RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) meeting, at which Richard will be talking?Continue reading “RISC OS Developments talks to ROUGOL”
