I am now living in Adelaide, South Australia, so my RiscPC has travelled from the outback of SA to the red heart near Alice Springs, then Port Augusta and now I am retired in Adelaide. It is leaving a trail of websites behind it, a number continue to be managed on said machine by yours truly. See [link] (old site but still interesting, though seemingly untouched since I left in 2001, I know they are still actively using about 3 RiscPCs and 1 A7000 in classrooms. <p>[link] (see comments above) <p>[link] (personal site) <p>[link] (managed) <p>[link] (currently under re-development for RAR - draft site) <p>It keeps my RiscPC busy - also thanks to those who ported PHP to RiscOS. It's great. <p>There is no dealer currently active in Adelaide and Beebnet is defunct. I am not aware of any schools in Adelaide still using Acorns. Some years ago our grain terminals across the state used Acorn machines networked to control the conveyor belt systems. This was an extensive operation in about 4 major ports. I don't know if they still do?
