On A call to ARMs:

Very few countries in the world still sell RISC OS in a shop. :-(

It is a small world.

On Qercus reviewed but renewed?:

Maybe the magazine should never have been a monthly and would have been better off and on time if it was said to be a quarterly ;-)

On Creating simple banners using RISC OS:

So true about RISC OS having the ability to produce good banners that are so different from the boring everyday WordArt in Microsoft's collection.

Working with RISC OS in schools full of PCs, I am too often asked to do basic graphic design stuff on my 13 year old RiscPC 600 running RO4.02. The worst features about the WordArt on PCs is the ugly designs and many of them really unreadable to the point where they really spoil the documents the teachers at my school try to produce. The lack of experience using a draw type programme or simply acknowledging the need to buy a vector drawing programme for the PCs is one big drawback for MS user teachers in my environment.

I don't even have a new RISC PC, nor do I have PhotoDesk or ArtWorks! Without these wonderful RISC OS graphic tools I still can produce far better banners and logo designs than our PC user staff and our school's PC Media Studies department.

I guess when we do not have a decent RISC OS Media Player, it doesn't matter so much when our basic graphics capabilities are still quite good.

On ROOL mouse mat design revealed:

It does look quite nice with so many choices of community.

Sure strikes me how the old Acorn has gone and how 'wide' our 'little' community really is these days.

On Oregano 3 scrapped:

*In reply to Bluenose:*

I know that there is the AemulorPro available (and hopefully still available) to run !Sibelius and old 26 bit software.

Reading through most of the posts here, I think that we should focus on what we have like Netsurf and Firefox. Maybe we had too many browsers going on over the years?

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.
