South East show warms up

Theatre details and on-site Iyonix upgrades [Updated]

As the South East RISC OS show is approaching, more event related details are appearing on the show website.

Punch and Judy
A timetable for the show theatre, for example, has been published and it lists talks from Castle, R-Comp, RISCOS Ltd. and others. Show theatres are great for listening to the business people who are driving our market, explaining what their respective companies have planned, what they're selling now and how much they love their competitors' products. Watch for the wry smile when they mention that last one.

The theatres are especially worthwhile for the grilling afterwards in the form of the usual rapid fire questions and answers session. It's a rare time when we can herd decision makers into a public forum and remind them who their the customers are and what their customers want. Also, MicroDigital are sadly not attending the show, so at least the press can safely assume that they'll not be told to go away. You have a week to prepare your burning questions.

Iyonix users are invited to bring along their Iyonixes to have them upgraded on-site at the show. An email from the organisers passed onto drobe.co.uk explained, "Iyonix software updates are going to be available - located in the lobby so that owners wishing to have the software upgrades performed for them, can bring the machines to the entrance area, and then go around the rest of the show (not forgetting to collect them afterwards!)"

Update 14/10/2003

Castle have been in touch with us regarding the Iyonix updates - they are not software in nature, which was a miscommunication from the show organisers; it is a firmware update only which addresses problems with the reset functionality on some machines. For more details, see the Iyonix mailing list.

In addition to software updates, IYONIX owners can bring their machines to the show and have a fix applied for a power on/reset problem (appointment necessary). There are more details at the IYONIX Smartgroups group. -- Simon Wilson, Boulder, Colorado

Being fortunate enough to be in England last year I visited the Guildford show. It was very well run and a great day. Anyone who can should get along.

The directions supplied in map and photograph form are the best I've ever seen.

The directions on their website? As a pedestian, I'm thoroughly confused about which route I can take, and whether I should take the footpaths, or whether that takes me too far from the pedestrian entrance.

Unfortunately, the link they give to the council website which ought to help is broken because that site is currently being revamped and doesn't seem to have any information relevant to the college site.

A little text giving directions by foot, bus and car would be useful.

the simplest way of doing it is to get to the guildford london road station.

come out the station (side as from waterloo) get to the big road and turn right.

RISC OS SE will magically appear on your right hand side...

As far as I can remember ;-)

I'd better be right cos I'm helping this year.... ;-)

I'll let everyone know after friday set up.

Either I'll have missed it or you'll have what you desire...

Does this happen often then (I mean the size 9 stuck in your gob).

I generally wear shoes on my feet - but if it improves my looks I am willing to try anything (will a size 8.5 work just as well ;).
