Wakefield photos and gossipBy Chris Williams. Published: 15th May 2004, 15:11:42 | Permalink | Printable
The fun has begunWakefield 2004 Earlier today, drobe.co.uk webmaster Ian visited the Wakefield show for a while and took some photos as the first day of the weekend long event unfolded. Already news and gossip is seeping to the outside world, and most people we've spoken to have described the show as "busy".
Excuse the lack of thumbanils, we'll gallerise these in time. Notable photos include: Ben Dooks from Simtec, working hard recently to finish UniPod drivers... A glowing Iyonix... Qercus editor, John Cartmell looking happy... NetBSD stand, bringing NetBSD ever closer to the Iyonix... Drobe editor Peter Naulls manning his stand... "I'll put it on the gold card"... The new A75 native hardware... UniPod on display... Castle and APDL stands... Overhead view of the show... And more photos to follow, of course, plus there's Iconbar's live roving camera and gossip page.
So what's been revealed? Well, Castle reportedly have USB2 in beta and have said lots of companies are showing an interest in using RISC OS outside of the desktop arena, with talk of a 50000 unit project in the works. An Omega with a working network card was spotted, and STD have Unipod stocks at the show, with drivers literally hot off the Simtec press.
More details and reports to follow, once everyone's checked in.
Larger photos, smaller photos - unsorted, at the moment, but enjoy.
Went to the show? Tell us about it.

Tragic Paul Vigay's final software update
Three days before Paul was found dead on the morning of February 20, he released a bug-fix update to his TextTidy software - as the name suggests, the program can tidy up text files by stripping out unwanted line feeds and non-printable characters.
