RISC OS kit of the t-shirt kind

By Chris Williams. Published: 12th Nov 2002, 03:57:22 | Permalink | Printable

Alert. Sobering "softwear" puns detected.

Send us a press release. If it's about RISC OS then we'll publish it. We might poke a little fun at you, we might instead dish out some creamy bowls of praise, we may alternatively ask for some pizza. Whoever said life was fair? Joking aside for a mere second, you probably ought to know that last night Young Enterprise branch Sober got in contact with drobe.co.uk (and quick-off-the-mark-for-a-change-iconbar.com) to tell us about their new RISC OS t-shirt product line.

"Sober are pleased to announce Acorn/RISC OS T-Shirts", states company director Andy Duffell in the Sober press release. "For as little as 5.99 GBP you could be the proud wearer of our quality soft-wear. You can either use our pre-made design (see website) or send us your own design and we will produce it."

It must be t-shirt season or something in RISC OS land, despite an impending cold winter, typical of the UK. It's also worth pointing out that Sober do non-RISC OS t-shirts, just so you know, and you can get full pricing and contact/ordering details from here. Now you have no excuse, everyone should have some kind of RISC OS clothing in time for the Midlands show.

I dunno why the intro occasionally crashes in Oregano :( I blame Oregano :P

Unless it has been changed recently, the site also fails with Browse. My advice is, if you are a PC user then this is your chance to buy some RISC OS stuff. -- Spriteman.

Site works fine with: Oregano 1.10+ Mozilla IE NetScape

It works but not with all features with:

Fresco 2.13+

I have not tested it with any other browsers, but if they support HTML3.2+ and JavaScript it should work fine. If without javascript the site is still usable (only the fade in intro and t-shirt designer won't work)

Hope Sober's school knows he's operating a sweat shop on school grounds. ;-)

I remember my YE company making a lot of money, but we had loads of shareholders so it all got split out lots.

We are only putting in 50p each because it means we will get the same share back as if we put in 10.00 each. We don't have a problem with startup finance due to the fact we are holding a talent-contest at school/sixthform.

I would suggest that if you are making a website for risc os people you make sure that it works fully or degrades gracfully on:

Oregano Fresco WXL Browse

It'd be bonkers not to.

I get the feeling it was designed by someone not familiar with RISC OS.
