The Association of Acorn User Groups (AAUG) has just sent us the following details about their stand at the forthcoming RISC OS 2000 Show.

User group information
We will have user group members on hand to provide information on your nearest local usergroup or on one of the many global or internet groups that exist for RISC OS users. The user group directory is now so large we've had to move to A3!! Come and pickup your free copy!

Details of the AAUG Discount scheme will also be available, which now includes discounts on RiscStation and RiscPC systems, monitors and hard discs!!

Internet & home networking demonstration
We will have a demonstration of how to network together your computers (whether RISC OS or otherwise) and to access the internet from them. We will have several networked RiscPCs available for Internet access and demonstrations of network resource sharing and network printing.

Digital imaging
Visitors will be able to see examples of a digital still camera and downloading files into RISC OS, a Digital Video camera displaying real-time, full colour images onto a RISC OS desktop, a digital video projector and a complete Videodesk system!

ARM/RISC OS demo area
In time honoured tradition, we will also be showing some of the more unusual and innovate uses of RISC OS and ARM-based technology from the past, present and future!

This year sees the return of the infamous RiscPC Pizza Oven, and the incredibly rare FPA11 Floating Point Accelerator chip. From the past, we have a 32016 "Cambridge Co-Processor" second processor attached to a Master 128, with 1MB RAM, hardware floating point, PanOS, etc

We also have a couple of innovative commercial uses of ARM-based technology. One is a RISC OS system for guiding commercial shipping via radar and the other for playing and storing upto 25 DAYS of high quality digital audio in your car!

The AAUG stand is located on stand 20 on the first floor - do make sure you pay us a visit!!
