MyRISCOS re-organisation details leaked

By Chris Williams. Published: 17th Dec 2003, 04:21:14 | Permalink | Printable


Tonight, Jeremy Coates of 'rival' site MyRISCOS is speaking at the RONWUG usergroup. The topic of Jeremy's speech will be an update to the group on the "re-organisation" of the RISC OS portal.

A MyRISCOS spokesperson told us that details of this re-organisation will be released after the meeting, also asking us to "guess where?!?" the news will be published. The spokesperson also explained that the PHPnuke powered website will experience "evolution rather than revolution". Now, three things that evolve spring to mind: Creatures, RISCOS Ltd. and Pokemon. We'll be interested to see where MyRISCOS fits in there.

As MyRISCOS are keeping tight lipped on how their site is changing, we had to dig deep and blitz our contacts with warm mince pies and festive cookies. Eventually one insider cracked and sent in an exclusive screenshot of what the new website will possibly look like, which gives a good impression of what may be MyRISCOS' fresh new editorial focus.

I laughed like a drain at your screenshot. Too easy a target?

I've never heard a drain laughing before ;) I've not visited MyRO for years, either.

I laughed when I saw that you'd changed "The Alternative Angle" to "The Alternate Angle". Then, by reflex, I checked out MyRISCOS and acutely saw you were not being obtuse; drobe hadn't done anything supplementary at all. I laughed even more. "MyRISCOS - the vertically opposite angle !" (I hope I'm not being too complementary).

Heh, does this mean they're going to start twisting facts and making news up for myriscos then?

Of course, the quality of the spelling on the site parallels the overall content.

"The topic of Jemery's speech"

Who is Jemery? ;)

I wonder if MyRO and Qercus are going to team up? They're both speaking at the same club meeting.

perhaps if you use that ie flaw discussed in another article... you could do an alternate MyRiscOS page for real... or not since most real risc os browsers cry foul. well, it's be updated once, or twice ? reminds me why magazines are so expensive - if we have to pay for somebody to work a 39 hr day. what's the going rate at drobe? :o) you guys must be winding the clockwork the whole time... iconbar dieing regularly, my riscos never changing. 'you do too much. you're not superman, you know.' what you got planed for april 1 ?
