On South East 2007 show report:

Shows like this rely on a team of helpers, to get the stands up, get power to all of them, help the exhibitors bring in their kit, set up the 'theatre' and serve refreshments. Then after it's all over, clear everything up. I was one of that team - 2hrs on Friday plus 2 hours set up on Saturday. Then 2 sessions during the show and and about 1.5hrs clearing up.

I still found time to buy upgrades for Easiwriter, Photodesk, Datapower as well as an improved version of VA - the Sa one.

Glad everyone enjoyed it. But a special very big thank you to those on the catering stand.

On Select 4 delayed after Middleton family death:

I, too, got a reminder last week that my Select subscription was overdue. I had renewed at the Guildford show - and the money had been taken from my credit card. I've emailed back, but have had no reply.

On 32bit Insignia released for free:

I don't seem to be able to find the manual on the download page. Can anyone help?

On South East 2006 show report:

I counted more: Fortran Friends, Qercus (Fleur Designs), R-Comp, EFF, Geminus, RISC OS Now - Plus the First Aider on the St John Ambulance stand as well those helping on the catering stand. Here, Lin S had bought up the entire stock of sandwiches at her local Tescos that morning and managed to sell the last one 20 minutes before closing time. Many thanks to the supply of coffee & tea - I hope the charity (CHASE - Children's Hospice) did well from your efforts. A long day, but for the exibitors like RComp who had a further 4 hours of travelling afterwards it would be even longer. (PM admitted to having driven 1200 miles so far that week)

On Acorn brand name in PC laptop launch:

Unfortunately, over the years, well known British brand names in consumer electronics have been bought and used by companies who originate elsewhere. Decca, Bush, Leak & Roberts are ones that immediately spring to mind. The motor industry has a similar situation, (Jaguar, Land Rover, Rolls Royce) but at least the products are usually still made in the UK. So, Acorn Computers is not the first, nor will it be the last, to turn up as something completely different.
