Did someone say "free Iyonix"?By Chris Williams. Published: 28th Jan 2004, 01:37:11 | Permalink | Printable
Gimme gimme gimmeAs part of the Iyonix launch, hardware developer Castle decided that giving a machine away for free every so often to a randomly picked user would be a great way to get some publicity. One machine was given away prior to the launch in November 2002 and another was handed over last November on the XScale powered computer's anniversary.
And behold, there's another Iyonix prize draw, scheduled for December 2004 and according to their website, "the next draw will be held on the 1st of December 2004." Simply fill in some (depending on your definition of 'some') personal details to enter the prize draw to win Castle's flagship computer.
Congratulations to the eagle eyed reader who spotted this year's prize draw; you beat Castle to their own publicity. Instead of keeping the news to yourself to ensure that few fellow users enter and you therefore stand a greater chance of winning the Iyonix, you chose to tell us about it and thus inform the thousands of people who frequent drobe.co.uk of the prize draw.
That's why we thought we wouldn't mention your name, James. Oops.

USB memory stick app bugfixed in time for British Summer Time
Fat32FS, a filing system module that allows Iyonix users to use PC-formated USB drives that are over 2GB in size, is now up to version 1.14. Developer Jeff Doggett said he had tidied up the code a bit and corrected a problem with file timestamps after the change to BST.
