Iyonix and Omega NewsIt's been a slow week for news for RISC OS (and it's rare we say that here on Drobe), but things are picking up again in preparation for the forthcoming RISC OS Southwest Show, so we thought it worth covering a few items.
Alan Gibson of Liquid Silicon today announced he has in the process of shipping the final few systems in their backlog of orders for Omegas. We're glad that people who have been waiting such a long time for a machine will finally get one, although here at Drobe, we're still a bit concerned over certain aspects of the machine's completeness. Alan also says that orders for a machine will arrive "in a few weeks", which is probably an understandable turn-around time for a small manufacturer.
John Ballance today mentioned on the Iyonix support list that he would be able to perform what's become known as "The Fix", which addresses stability issues on some Iyonixes, at the forthcoming Southwest show, along with the previous PAL update, which fixes reset issues on some machines. You'll have to book, however, as the modifications take a little time. See the Iyonix support list for more details. John also mentions he'll be able to perform the same fixes at the RONWUG user group meeting on Monday 16th Feburary.
