South East show warms upBy Chris Williams. Published: 11th Oct 2003, 16:42:45 | Permalink | Printable
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!)"
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.
