Photo of the monthRecently, reader Simon Wilson emailed in some photos he took at last month's Wakefield show, which includes a shot of the RISCOS Ltd. stand's Omega with a sticker on it that reads, "my other computer's an Iyonix PC". The anonymous jester responsible for this incredibly reckless act of wit is sadly still at large. As we couldn't help but chuckle at the cheeky gag, here it is:

Simon also snapped pictures of the RISCOS Ltd. MP3 filer and Castle showing off their beta-USB2 support. Simon is best known for his PCITV software, which was demonstrated at the show to the crowds.
"I spoke to Jack [Lillingston, Castle CEO], and he told me that he used my software in the demo as it's one of the easiest ways to get a 'wow' reaction from people in such a short space of time - showing scaleable, full framerate video in the desktop for hardly any cost," Simon commented to us earlier, who recently had his Iyonix returned to base to fix a 'fried' network chip.
"He also said he was looking forward to the forthcoming release of my PCITV software, with support for image cropping, which means the TV viewer window can be dragged off the side of the screen without the TV image smearing onto the opposite side of the screen (as with current versions)."
