On Watch the trailer of BBC's Acorn versus Sinclair history docu-drama:

Didn't know what the mac app was called but yes what eventually became easiwriter was started on the mac and was used by snr Adams - am guessing that some of his later works were written using it

On Watch the trailer of BBC's Acorn versus Sinclair history docu-drama:

hmm

So they gave the role of Chris Curry to the guy that played Arthur Dent in the film...

Although that is actually a quite circular ref as Easi/Techwriter were originally written for Douglas Adams... :-)

On EeePCs and RPCEmu at ROUGOL:

Pity the standard distro that comes with the eee doesn't have the necessary bits.

Not too surprising really as it is a cut down and customised distribution.

So if you want rpcemu on your linux Eee PC do what I did and install Ubuntu eee:

[link]

- it will be changing its name soon as Canonical have got the hump with it being called Ubuntu! :-(

It is worth saying here that Canonical have gone to *great* lengths to make installing Ubuntu and using it as painless as possible - it is far from perfect and isn't as easy as RISC OS (you will end up in a terminal window at some point...) but it does work.

By editing the config file I have managed to get it to have 128MB of RAM - which is nice.

Now I need to work out what the vertical res needs to be so I can get a bigger desktop as rpc emu (quite rightly) runs in a window...

It would be nice for it to appear in the package manager - would make installing it and runnng it much easier and yes Bryen I discovered that about the iptables thing too!

On EeePCs and RPCEmu at ROUGOL:

As chris said it did *amazingly* sort of work out of the box!!!

The reason that I decided to do this demo was for various reasons:

1) I use artworks & techwriter for work.

2) It would be handy to be not restricted to my A9 on my desk for the above.

3) Would it work?

I really did not expect it to work but it did :o

The biggest issue was getting networking to work - got it working in the end though...

The best bit was when I was doing stuff RISC OS side to hear the sarcastic comments of here's an OS that he knows!

One of the points of this talk was to see if someone like me who knows very little about linux could follow the instructions on riscos.info and get it running.

Hopefully it was entertaining

On South East 2008 show round up:

AW:

VRPC *only* runs on limited platforms - Windows & MacOS

What has been suggested by ROOL is to use a different emulator that is a bit more platform independant (i.e. runs with *NIX) & supply a RISC OS 5 ROM free which may work with it.

I am guessing that the intention is to use rpcemu (or some derivative) to allow the use of linux or something.

In terms of hardware that will depend on how good the emulator is.

On Apple Mac VirtualRiscPC leaves beta:

This is one of the problems with emulation.

People forget that the package actually includes an Operating System which needs to be paid for on a per machine basis.

RISC OS isn't yet a free Operating System.

I suppose the confusion comes from the fact you can (illegally of course!) buy a windows OS CD, for instance, and use it accross multiple machines (real or virtual).

Cogs:

Desktop appearance is all a matter of opinion.

Luckily RISC OS doesn't have much of a performance hit if you change how the desktop looks :-)

Unlike Windows XP (or Vista...), for instance, - if you adjust it for "Best Performance" (its in one of the advanced menus), the desktop suddenly goes all Windows 95 again...

On Using shared source to brighten up the desktop:

dt:

Interesting thought.

However if you look at this screenshot:

[link]

You can see what happens with some of the sprites on the iconbar when you deviate too far from the expected grey - notice what is happening to the RISC OS cog in the switcher icon.

This of course is cureable with the alpha channel that Select provides to sprites.

Ian's theme is really spangly and funky but it does highlight some of the issues that Chris Wraight has mentioned in his articles with reference to the "hard wired" colouration of RO4.0x and RO5.

On RISC OS Open: One year on:

Jwoody:

This has been said many, many times - the reason for the time to release issue is due to legal reasons as Martin mentioned in the article.

RISC OS is from a very closed sourced background (which interestingly may not be as "one company" as was tought), open sourcing in this instance is fraught with copyright issues.

The last thing an open version of RISC OS needs is a legal battle!

Better that this is done in a controlled and careful manner.

On RISC OS development charity taking shape:

The reason for becoming a charity is because RISC OS Connect is *not for profit*

The bounty idea for contributions is *optional* - if you contribute you don't *have* to take any money.

Part of what we are trying to do is:

Offer an optional bounty for contributions to the RISC OS community for those that would find this attractive.

Generating lists of stuff that users want and lists of what contributors could provide. This is where I see the bounty scheme really kicking in - for instance someone could really help with documentation on a project if there was something in it for them.

RISC OS Connect is a vessel for people to *help* the RISC OS Community, even if it is "just" money.

Netsurf is my browser No.1 (in fact I'm using it now :-) ) - if necessary JS is encountered then a shift-drag from Netsurf's URL bar onto O2 loaded onto the iconbar can then help!

As druck says you could be surprised at how much you can access with netsurf - what I have described above is a rairity ( and of course if you get *really* stuck theres always firefox :-) )

Netsurf + JS? Yes please! :-D with of course the caveat that, as has always been said, its a *massive* amount of work so if it is too much then thats OK with me.

On NetSurf halts punter's search for love:

arenaman:

you're missing the point.

RISC OS is a *minority* or *niche* OS

That means that some things just don't work - modern flash for instance (although that may be changing soon :-) )

When using RISC OS you *have* to be realistic.

I have no problem with this.

I feel sorry for the RiscPC users because they can't use Firefox2v2 - but there will be sound technical reasons for this.

RISC OS is still alive which I am really grateful for as I am slightly biased ;-)

I love RISC OS but I am realistic to accept that the developments for it are made by a few people.

When I get home from work where I *have* to use the dreaded M$ it is a nice relief :-)
