New mailing list for Omega usersBy Chris Williams. Published: 23rd Aug 2004, 08:15:32 | Permalink | Printable
Wanna be in my gang?Archive magazine has set up a mailing list for the most exclusive club of RISC OS users: Omega owners. The list was created after Archive editor Paul Beverley started forwarding information via email to readers with Omegas, and decided to organise this effort into a mailing list.
"I've invited David Atkins to join the group, but I've not heard from him," Paul told us last night. "Having said that, I gather Microdigital are on holiday until Monday. However, Frank Kraaij of Microdigital Europe has joined the group and has already made a couple of very helpful comments about technical issues."
The new Archive list is open to Omega-owning subscribers only, but if you're particularly eager, contact Paul.

Paul Beverley's asked for us add these points, as he writes, "Having seen the comments about the 'exclusivity' of Omega-on-Line, please can you tell your readers that if anyone really wants to read about, for example, which KVMs work on Omega, they only have to ask me and I'll let them join the list. Secondly, I've realised that my comment about [David Atkins] sounded criticial. Would you please apologise for me and say that it wasn't meant to be."
The Archive Omega mailing list, which has 25 subscribers to date and is growing daily, isn't supposed to be secret at all, and is "a service for Omega owners, especially as several of them were saying that they were unable to access the message boards on the Microdigital website", according to Paul.
