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.

And Advantage Six has got in first to use the service to plug its A9home computer.
