Omegad! Is it Christmas?

By . Published: 21st Dec 2002, 19:57:38 | Permalink | Printable

Can it be true? Is it finished? An Omega for Christmas?

At the end of two wireless links in the middle of Yorkshire (!) news reaches us from Archive-meister Paul Beverley that apparently, allegedly, maybe Aaron Timbrell may have had an Omega delivered. Microdigital had promised an Omega by Christmas but time's getting short for this promise to be delivered. If it's true, 2002 will have provided not one (Iyonix) but two (Omega) new RISC OS computers - staggering.

If anyone has any proof (pictures?!) they've got an Omega, please let us (and Paul Beverley I guess :-) know!

You covered yourself with yet? Isn't that a bit sticky?

Yet(i)s aren't sticky,.. at least not when you cook them.

the omega has many hopes. We hope the same. But can it take the hardness of the Castle? Or does it take the hardness of the bishop in its back. the faith that we have? -- Avid Bracznec

Microdigital have promised me delivery of mine by the end of January. It's either that or I take my business elsewhere. -- Paul.
