Re: New hardware suggestion - Pi econet server

RISC OS Pi still has the Econet code in it and even prints "Econet hardware not found" at every boot!

Re: Proud new owner of A3020 but with a rough start

The RiscOS desktop applications seem very familiar to the MacOS ones. The other way round of course, as RISC OS did it years earlier :D Rather than using SparkPlug, you might want to try the read-only version of SparkFS from here - https://www.riscosopen.org/content/downloads/common It turns archiv...

Do you have any plans to buy a real Acorn machine, or are you enjoying emulation? I think I'll stick with emulation for now, thanks. b-em works quite well, and I have so many Raspberry Pis around the place that emulation just seems to happen.

Great news, see you tomorrow! Can you bring the video of your LED cube that you showed at ROUGOL last month? I'd like to upload it to the website.

Re: Impression Publisher Fonts "Out of Memory"

IIRC this was a number range bug in the installer that caused it to wrap if you had lots of memory. The counterintuitive solution was to reduce your free memory before running it!
