Archive mag compiles articles into booksBy Chris Williams. Published: 19th Nov 2005, 19:17:05 | Permalink | Printable
Top idea for dead tree strokersSeries of articles recently published in Archive magazine have been compiled into four books covering topics ranging from mastering VirtualRiscPC to software programming. Each collection will cost a fiver and according to editor Paul Beverley, "Each of these booklets brings together, in one convenient booklet, the combined wisdom on a particular topic as published in Archive over the years."
Book one will detail R-Comp's Messenger Pro email and news software and offer hints and tips on the package. Book two will cover networking RISC OS computers with machines running Mac OS, Linux and Windows. The third title will document using emulator VirtualRiscPC. The fourth book is a beginner's guide to desktop programming in C.
The number of up to date RISC OS specific books is pretty low and the dead tree tomes are pretty much essential for users new or returning to the platform.

South East 2008 theatre talk videos now online
Didn't make to the South East 2008 show in Guildford this year? Not to worry, because on top of the usual Drobe coverage, you can now watch videos of the presentations made by RISC OS Open and RISC OS Ltd staff at the event. Recorded live at the show, the videos, in which products and projects are talked up by developers to punters, also include question and answer sessions from the floor.
