You've misread ;-) The site had not been formally released, but we transferred the riscosopen.co.uk domain (rather than the much more commonly used .com, .org or .org.uk variants which we also own) as an interim test. This was probably a mistake, since it meant that people could quite easily stumble upon the prototype site by accident.

Since users are now signing up for accounts, they will be getting account activiation e-mail messages containing addresses that won't work because the other 3 domains still point to the static site. So, to avoid a flood of support requests or disgruntled users we've transferred the remaining domains over. It'll take a while for this to propagate.

You're quite right, the site wasn't properly ready - but it wasn't rolled out either.

Anyway, at least everyone gets to see what we're doing, even if it doesn't all work yet.

Dave Moore, who was able to secure a few tables for Acorn hardware, organised a meet up for like-minded enthusiasts at the event and gave us this round-up of reports and photos from the show.
