MicroDigital's domain expiresBy Chris Williams. Published: 28th May 2005, 02:08:35 | Permalink | Printable
The writing's on the WHOIS [Updated]MicroDigital's website domain name expires today, 6 years after it was first registered. At the time of writing, microdigital.co.uk requires renewing although is still resolving.
The site is home not only to information about MicroDigital's product lines, but also the company's Newsdesk section - a collection of articles and other eyebrow raising writings covering topics from show reports to motorbike racing. Some of the earlier gems have since been pulled from the site by MicroDigital.
The domain name for MicroDigital's forum and support website does not need renewing until later this year, although one user has claimed that MicroDigital have not announced to its customers the fate of its microdigital.co.uk website.
When asked if the Yorkshire based company was working on anything in particular at the moment, the Omega owner added: "I really hope so but nobody really knows. MicroDigital Europe say that they are working but have one problem after the other. But there is the RISC OS Expo on 18th June. I think they will be there as will I and then I hope they have some answers - or even better, some upgrades."
Of all their products, from the ARM7500 Mico to their VirtualRiscPC powered laptops, MicroDigital are best known for their StrongARM Omega computer: Launched in October 2000, it eventually shipped in 2003, although features such as networking support appeared some time afterwards.
At the start of the month, RiscStation's website domain names expired after the company found more profitable revenue streams outside of RISC OS. Microdigital were unavailable for comment yesterday.

At the end of May, MicroDigital's domain was eventually renewed. Microdigital.co.uk expires in 2007.
