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.
