Super searching, maybe warez and the skoolin' of our life

As it's Friday afternoon and we can play 'Spot The RISC OS Reference'. Here's some interesting sites you might like to snoop around.

Super searching
Stuart of the Cybervillage has overhauled his super search page. The customisable engine list almost reminds us of the days when drobe.co.uk used to be a lot more customisable. "We wanted a page that had no graphics on it so it was always superfast at downloading over our 33k dial up modems", Stuart told us.

Positive education?
We've spotted this new page on MicroDigital's website. Curious?

Archez returns
Matthew Price has set up Archez, a site dedicated to old Acorn era games and people interested in returning to the platform. We'll see how it grows.

New Education website? Hmm, no content and no image. Perhaps MD are thinking of offering discounts for schools? -- Andrew Harmsworth, Cambridge. www.gcse.com owner and author

Harmsy it has to be Alpha... AFAIK schools get funds for a quota of laptops don't they ?

Well until MD reveal all let's wait with breath that is baited.

Archez has been up for a while - at the very least over a year, IIRC. It used to have downloads of commercial RISC OS games on it! :-o -- Simon Wilson, Boulder, Colorado

AMS: If you're thinking of Laptops for Teachers ([link]), then I doubt MD will pass BECTA's tests. I did wave an idea at DA (and others) a year or more ago. If it's that, I'll send in the bill for consultancy (:-)

NB: note bald smiley...

The old Archez site went down in June of 2001. This new variant will not have any commerical downloads just articles, free software and news etc.
