Wakefield 2005 theatre detailsBy Chris Williams. Published: 28th Apr 2005, 21:11:23 | Permalink | Printable
Companies going on the record
The organisers of next month's Wakefield event have tentatively drawn up a timetable of show theatre presentations. This should give the companies addressing the crowds just under 25 days to prepare some new material to surprise us with. Each talk is expected to last about 45 minutes each, give or take the usual grilling from the more cynical punters present.
On Saturday, Castle will kick start the day at 10.30am, with a talk modestly called "Castle Matters" - a title seemingly stolen from your average day time chat show. Teasing us with corporate buzzwords, Advantage 6 will be lecturing us on "Getting the Advantage" at 11.30am. Icon Technology will be touting their EasiWriter and TechWriter software at 12.30pm, and similarly, MW Software will be entertaining us with Artworks 2 features at 2pm. The Simon Cowell of RISC OS, Drobe man Peter Naulls will be revealing his RISC OS Firefox port at 3pm. Finally, at 4pm, that cutting edge of journalism, Qercus will be discussing "Opportunities for the Future".
Then on Sunday, Qercus again at 10.50am, Advantage Six at 11.50am, Icon Technology at 12.50pm and Castle at 2.15pm.
The Wakefield show, celebrating its 10th birthday, is set to be held on May 21 and 22, in Yorkshire.

ROL flogs RISC OS 4 for all emulators
Download a RISC OS 4.02 ROM image for a fiver from RISCOS Ltd's website from Monday and use it with your favourite machine emulator, such as RPCEmu. The package is set to include the !Boot and application and utilities files too. ROL boss Paul Middleton said: "We have been looking at ways of making a low cost, or 'virtually free' version of RISC OS available for some time." Keep an eye on ROL's new sales website. The ROM image, which contains the operating system code usually found on the ROS ROM chips, will be available on CD too.
