Snippets – 1st January, 2021

A final round up of 2020 news that hasn’t found its way to RISCOSitory before I was aiming to get this final round up of news posted on the last day of 2020, but as ever other things got in the way, so what was intended as the last post of 2020 has become the first post of 2021.

Snippets – 26th August, 2016

Round up, round up; news in a very late style. (That was what China Crisis sang, wasn’t it?)

Snippets – 31st August, 2015

News nuggets for you to chew on. The last few months have been very busy with stuff unrelated to RISC OS, so unposted news – particularly smaller items – has built up again. It’s time, therefore, for a snippets post to round up these smaller items.
