On Wakefield 2008 to be held in April:

Oh, I'll be there. I'm hoping I can get my hands on an A9Home at last, as I've been passing up the opertunity for too long now. I'd also be looking forward to all the ususal developments from all.

On Building a RISC OS laptop out of Lego:

By swapping the HHD for a CF card and an IDE to CF adaptor (available on Ebay for less than a fiver), you can have a small solid state drive. Not only does this get around the physical size problem, but does not generate heat too. It also should make room for the RAM slot.

But as cool as this lego laptop looks, I would have to agree with 'hzn', about using a breifcase, but I really would like to make a Lego Midi Tower - Peter's just looks too good with the Acorn logo the side with a light up background.

Now an A9Home Laptop is something worth a go. While Advantage 6 have made the box and the 'stuffed in a monitor' versions, we've yet to see a real Laptop config. Note :- for anyone wanting to try this, don't forget your warranty will be invalid (unless you stuff the whole A9 box in there too).

On Oregano 3 spotted on a RISC OS desktop:

In reply to rjek: Entering an image search under google was faster under O2, than Netsurf. But speed was not the main complaint about either of these browsers. Yes, O2 does have issues when it tries to open pages it can't handle, but then Netsurf seems to suffer a memory leak or something, as it can't handle too many searches from Google's image base, before it bomb's out. Yes I do use Netsurf as my main RiscOS browser, but O2 is on backup. If O3 can deliver, then I'd be interesed in it.

On Oregano 3 spotted on a RISC OS desktop:

I like O2, as it seems to be the most stable, as well as very quick. Sadly, its real limitation on website handle forces me to use an alternative - the not quite stable Netsurf. While Netsurf can handle just about anything thrown at it, O2 still beats it on speed. However, even Netsurf looses its bottle when using Google to browse imiges. After about three pages, Netsurf, seems to fall off the digital wave and into the void of *BLEEP!*. If O3 is brought out, I will be among the first to jump for it!

On Big Ben Club organises mini-Expo:

Oh no! While i'd love to attend more shows, etc, I will be spending the time in a plaster cast, following an Op. Oh well, there's always the next event.
