Companies flock to Christmas road showBy Chris Williams. Published: 28th Nov 2005, 13:02:08 | Permalink | Printable
But no tour bus or groupies in sightNext month's RISC OS road show has moved up a gear, now that a healthy list of dealers and developers attending has been confirmed. Over a dozen companies regularly seen at larger shows have signed up for the ambitious plan to exhibit at three intimate venues around England. The Manchester location currently looks to be the hottest, pulling the concentration of RISC OS activity away from the south of the UK.
RISCOS Ltd. boss Paul Middleton, who masterminded the event at the end of October, said, "The RISC ,OS Christmas Roadshow is reviving the old Acorn spirit with a trip round the country, without a double decker bus. This will be your chance to get those last minute presents and bargains just a week before Christmas."
Below is a table of attendance per company; green is for yes, red is for no.
RISCOS Ltd. hope to use the road show to extend their userbase of 500 Adjust users and 6400 RISC OS 4 users. AdvantageSix will be bringing along varients in the A9 range. Archive are planning to add more booklets to their recently announced range of titles. Icon will be selling ArtWorks for MW Software at the London event. Other exhibitors will be bringing along their usual products and hopefully some Christmas special offers.
The road show will begin on Thursday 15th December at the West Bromwich Albion Football Club, near Birmingham, West Midlands, with doors open between 4pm and 8pm. The gang then move to the Brittania Hotel Stockport, near Manchester, Chesire, from 4pm to 8pm. Then those remaining will roll into Best Western Cumberland Hotel, near London, Middlesex, with doors open between 11am and 3pm.

New driver to read and write large USB storage devices
Jeff Doggett has ported a library to create a RISC OS module that can access USB-based FAT32 storage devices greater than 2GB in size, such as memory sticks and Flash cards. Jeff said: "This is just a filing system module - there is no desktop front-end or anything user friendly. It's version 0.01 which should give you some idea that you should try it first on a test drive before letting it loose on anything valuable."
