Re: ABUG SOUTH 22 to 24 November 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD - NOW FULL - but accepting names for reserve list

As can be seen, we now have 30 names down for the event. Last time, we had about that number attend and there was plenty of space for everyone (a big change from some venues). However, the problem now is we actually don't have sufficient tables to accommodate more people. (And I will be very gratef...

Re: I have an Atomwide Risc PC 8 Slot Backplane with a set of metal case fixings (long!)

I'm interested in the backplane, what sort of price are you looking at Dave?
I've got a bunch of slices that I'm building into a rocket ship (when I have the time) so can always use a large backplane to take the number of cards that I want to attach to it.

Re: Is there an archiving project for RISC OS applications?

I've been archiving a pretty large collection of Risc OS applications that I've got.
The disks are all being run through my Kryoflux but I've got a lot of work to do. The intention is to scan the manuals and boxes.
I've thought about setting up a database containing all the bits for each title.

So, what do you think about putting a PCB with a Varta rechargable battery through a dishwasher cycle???? You should just cut them off, replace them with something else.
