Art attacked RiscPCs exiled to eBayBy Chris Williams. Published: 28th Feb 2003, 03:11:47 | Permalink | Printable
Try and frame thisOk, we couldn't resist running this article. So three RiscPC's turn up on online auction site eBay. This happens all the time, how is that news? Well um, just look at the cases.
They're all standard RiscPCs running RISC OS 3.6 with moderate specs plus network cards but the catch is they've been used by one Ben Brook during his A level art course and are therefore thoroughly decorated. Why, you could have a Warm summers day theme, or a Sweeter than candy design or perhaps a Royal Marines paint job in case you're camouflaged behind enemy lines and want to smuggle a lone RISC OS box to some underground resistance.
Kids, paint and RiscPCs don't mix.

Martin Avison named as new Organizer developer
RISC OS software developer Martin Avison was today unveiled as the coder working on new versions of life management package Organizer. Originally written by Chris Morison, the software was handed over to Nigel Willmott to manage and find Organizer a new developer. Announcing a new website for the package, Nigel said: "It's been a steep learning curve both for me as a software publisher, and for Martin in finding his way around approaching 30,000 lines of code, but we hope an initial new version will be ready for release very soon."
