Wait, the London Show is on 26th October! What’s going on? If you read the London Show preview, you’ll notice that Adrian Lees is planning to launch a major new application, with no details available as yet about what it is – so the nature of that application is a mystery. Five days before the London Show, however, its organisers – the RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) – still plan to have their regular monthly meeting, and there will be a mystery new product revealed at that meeting.…

The 2019 London Show looms

Hang on, have I written the Southwest Show report yet? Ah, yes. What about Wakefield? Er… The countdown until the end of the Long Gap, when the RISC OS London Show takes place, has now ticked down to twenty days.

Informal meeting in London – 20th May

London Show snippets

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.

Available for £29.99 at the show, PiFi 3 is…
