Websites round upBy Chris Williams. Published: 5th Mar 2003, 09:27:31 | Permalink | Printable
Vigay.com, Oregano 2, Wakefield and moreWe're a website. These people have websites. And we can't actually be bothered to be witty at this time in the morning. Oh wait, this is a news round up and how about this, there's a weed killer with its own website called RoundUp. Not laughing? No refunds.
Vigay.com sheds anti-Microsoft nonsense. Almost
Idolised by forum site iconbar.com, Paul Vigay is a well known, helpful figure in the RISC OS community - this man investigates crop circles, show a little respect. Like a true old skool Acorn fan from the good old days of 1996 when it was cool to make fun of "Windoze" users, Paul is terribly anti-Microsoft and his personal website vigay.com used to actively block users using Microsoft products to surf the web. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't personally emailed Paul in the past complaining about this.
The good news is that in a recent site overhaul, Paul's eradicated his vast site of silly anti-IE scripts.
"I've removed restrictions on using inferior Microsoft products to browse the site", Paul mentions in his announcement, "so if you're using the inferior and buggy Windows XP you can now regain entry to the entire site without popups, warnings or crashes".
Sums it up really. Anyway, that aside, Paul's otherwise comprehensive site is being re-indexed to make it easier to navigate; note that not all pages will be online straight away.
Oregano2 full release to Iyonix users
Take a look. Castle's 32 bit web browser has been fully released to Iyonix users with a public launch for RISC OS 4 users being very imminent, we're very reliably informed. Here's looking forward to that press release.
Wakefield from a stand's eye
Stuart Tyrrell Developments has released video footage captured from their stand during last year's Wakefield RISC OS show.
"Have you ever wondered what it's like to exhibit at a RISC OS show?" STD asking the hard questions since 1998. "Here are some movies which show the view from our stand at Wakefield 2002. We set up a webcam recording at 1 frame per second, and these have been shrunk from their original 640x480 to 320x240, compressed and time-lapsed."
The films, which cover the set up of stands and the passage of the show, are in DivX format so Cineroma beta testers only or find a PC if you want to take a peek. Feel free to consume Stuart's bandwidth.
Are you going to Wakefield 2003?
And do you want to give myriscos.co.uk some traffic? Surely more than eight people are going to the show, or maybe only eight people visited myriscos this month or year or whatever. Steve Potts, of the WROCC, has posted to the hapless portal calling for people planning on going to the Wakefield 2003 show to register their intent in an online poll. While we'd love you all to go and vote and give Steve an idea of the number of people going to the North England event, please try not to get distracted by the sheer amount of content and editorial posted on myriscos. We're not worthy.
