VirtualAcorn moves "further forward"By Chris Williams. Published: 1st Sep 2004, 00:02:54 | Permalink | Printable
3QD move, ARM copyrightAs of today, the sales and technical support of VirtualAcorn software will be handled by 3QD, a web consultancy company managed by Aaron Timbrell. Aaron also managed VirtualAcorn, so end users shouldn't expect any changes in contact details.
"There have been a number of changes over the last few months and since it's the end of the 'Aaron Timbrell trading as 3QD' financial year it made sense to form a limited company to take VirtualAcorn even further forward," Aaron told drobe.co.uk today.
"So it's still myself, with Graeme [Barnes] developing, although there are now others involved, which has been part of the reason for the change of structure."
The "others involved" bit got us interested, as did this part from Aaron's announcement: "New versions of VirtualRPC-SE and VirtualRPC-Adjust will shortly be available as free upgrades for existing customers, these upgrades will reflect the change of status of VirtualAcorn."
As pictured left, the VA website is showing a screenshot of VirtualRiscPC 1.2, which is apparently copyrighted 2000-2004 Red Squirrel Technologies (Graeme, essentially), and oh look, portions copyrighted 2000-2004 ARM Ltd.

Prototype affordable Braille display in development
A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
