GAG 2003 show news

European gags

The German Archimedes Group annual get together has been and gone, lasting two days unlike this year's one-day-only Wakefield show. However, unlike the commercial exhibitor driven Wakefield show, the GAG event reminds us of a demo party; users turn up with their own kit and demonstrate new stuff while a few attending companies present their wares.

We contacted Herbert zur Nedden of GAG-News, GAG'S bi-monthly RISC OS magazine, to find out more about what happened at the Germany based event. While a fuller review will appear in their magazine, just for us, Herbert wrote up a brief run down of the show in English and you can read it here.

The show featured Iyonix, Omega and Alpha machines as well as various new software releases being demonstrated including Artworks 2.

"My personal overall impression was that the visitors enjoyed the event", said Herbert. "The main issue open is the Omega since some users are keen to upgrade to a new system but want to wait until they know what the IYONIX pc and the Omega really offer but I'm confident that that will happen soon."

The next big RISC OS show is this year's Big Ben Club event, which is described as being the European mainland equivalent of the Wakefield show.

Nah, I must have said something more accurate than that.. I must have... think man, what was it... that's right, how to get more caffiene into the system without drinking more coffee - fresh ground coffee + fresh orange juice. Vit C complexes the caffiene and so is more readily taken through the gut wall. Basis for lots of "stay awake" pills.

That sounds exactly like something I would expect the Nutrimatic Drinks Dispenser to come up with.

simon : I did it as part of an aborted research project. Apparently, it's illegal to produce this as it's classed as an amphetamine - or was it a barbiturate, never did clear that one up before leaving the department formerly known as Chemistry
