New goodies on drobe.co.ukBy Chris Williams. Published: 24th Apr 2003, 23:19:24 | Permalink | Printable
Event diary and moreThe drobe.co.uk behind-the-scenes team have been busy bees recently and you may have noticed the sudden appearance of various goodies on the left menu section. We've decided to post this as a news item because the changes are probably useful to RISC OS users generally.
Well anyway, here's what's been added recently:
- Event diary
- This is a handy online calendar of RISC OS events happening throughout the year. Each event is labelled with a date, catagory, description and contact details for the organisers. The calendar is searchable and indexed. We'll list all major events and you can also submit details of other events too if you think we've overlooked something.
- FTP archives
- We're mirroring roughly 14GB of RISC OS software and related websites and it's available via HTTP and now FTP.
- Reference material
- Serving you schematics of older Acorn hardware, technical reference manuals for the RiscPC and other Acorn computers plus a collection of photos.
- Online chat
- Talk and discuss in real time with other drobe.co.uk readers.
This is on top of the Forums, article comments, new FAQ section, Wallpaper, Newsgroups and comprehensive search facilities absorbed from AcornSearch.
