On Rare Acorn graphics joystick in auction:

Seems like a useful tool for minimising RSI. Is this kit at all compatible with a SARPC? With a view to using RiscCAD.

On CJE seeks interest in A9home:

Thanks JC for the name update, s'pose we should be thankful it's not called B9 or K9. Mind you the acronym of A-nine is Inane. Maybe I should stop here...

Drobe, can you put an email link here so that we can express our interest directly to either CJE or Advantage6, please?

On CJE seeks interest in A9home:

Methinks that teh form factor should be kept to a reasonable minimum. Why try to squeeze too much into it. Surely one of the A9's plus points is it's small size.

If people want a removable media drive, then why not opt for a CF slot, even IBM Microdrives are at 4GB now (albeit dear).

If the machine is to be portable, keep it that way. If it's for domestic/office use, then what harm is there in a plug-in device?

RO has no real Bluetooth/WiFi rollout planned, as such canles and peripheral devices are always going to be inherent in our working environment.

I do agree with druck though, the name A9Home isn't quite punchy enough.

I see the A9's strength as being able to be unplugged from my office. taken to site offices/clients' homes etc, and plugged into a monitor/keyboard/mouse there. No fussing with file conversions, uploading to the laptop (VA).

All info can then be read and displayed natively, RiscOS-ley.

Out of interest, is there a portable USB keyboard with trackball that could be velcro-ed to the A9? Something about the size of the Psion Netbook. Or would it be better to use a mini-mouse and a folding keyboard?

regards

Peter

On Mailing list opens for RiscCAD users:

Does anyone have a 2nd copy of 3D software like DaVinci or ArchiTech? I think Liquid Silicon have full priced copies, but no demo version and before I spend s, I'd at least like to see how compatible they are with !RiscCAD and !Draw.
