Show your love for RISC OS on FacebookPublished: 26th Mar 2008, 21:20:39 | Permalink | Printable
Let everyone know what's on your desktopWeb-savvy, all-round cool catz of the internet who know their FaceSpaces from their MyBooks, and use RISC OS, can let everyone know they're fans of the world's greatest operating system by signing up to a new, blue web page near you.
Facebook users now can become fans of RISC OS by joining a new page created by user Mike Carter, pictured, and hopefully spread some of that ROS joy to the rest of the interweb.
Mike, who previously set up a separate RISC OS user group on Facebook, said today: "Show your support by going to the [Facebook] RISC OS page and becoming a fan. You can also use the page to upload videos, photos, and screenshots, and any other RISC OS related stuff you would like to show off."
Indeed, the page already includes some interesting looking screenshots and videos of RISC OS in action. Facebook is a social networking site used by millions of people around the world, and is useful for sharing pictures, gossip, messages and other stuff to kill some spare time.
• This oily Drobe hack is reminded of the time he was at an Acorn World show when Acorn Clan chiefs were trying to get as many punters online and "make as much noise" as possible to attract worldwide attention to the tiny, niche platform. Even to this day, efforts to get ROS noticed on the sliproads of the information superhighway can't do any harm at all.

A guide to overclocking Kinetic and StrongARM CPU cards
Charlie Lane has compiled a package of notes and photos on overclocking various StrongARM processer cards, including Castle Kinetics, for RiscPCs. Overclocking is the process of ramping up the digital timing signals of the computer to force the processor to work faster. Charlie told us: "I thought it would be fun to investigate the possibilities of speeding up my Kinetic RiscPC - only to find suitable information on Kinetic cards was rather hard to come by so I set about working it out for myself." Note: Follow the instructions entirely at your own risk.
