Nothing to see here, move along

Last day at Pace



You'll remember our article about Pace redunancies and subsequent flogging of gear on eBay.

Well, today is that last day, and most of those employees have by now removed themselves to a nearby Cambridge pub (they certainly chose an excellent day for it). The employees in question - many of who also worked for Acorn, mark the removal from Pace of any tangible link to RISC OS.

For the rest of us, we've hopefully moved on, and are no longer dwelling on the follies of Acorn and lack of interest in RISC OS by Pace, with development having been in the hands of more enthusistic people for some time.

Cheers especially to: Hedley, William, Stewart, Ben, Richard, Rob, Neil and Andrew.

From: Managing_Director@pace.co.uk To: auction@ebay.com Subject: For Sale - Little used Operating System for sale called NC OS (RISC OS), going cheap for quick sale. We need the cash.

Plenty of low cost NC OS programmers around to help you to develop it into something useful.

P.S. Multiple copies of its code available from various sources listed above if you ask nicely. ;-)

You forgot Rob, he's clearly the best ebayist. All the others just cling on to crap. ...and I was auctioning the contents of their skips *years* ago. I claim my fiver.

Just thought I'd add my best wishes and hopes for the future to all those who've left Pace. Hopefully things will improve soon for you guys - thanks for all your work on RISC OS over the years.
