Reminder that the show is tomorrow!

Looks like there will be an ARM based RISC OS laptop, in addition to the PiTopv2. You wait years for one to come along.... :-D

I'll see if I can dig out my Kryoflux - can't promise anything as our house is currently in a state of upheaval!
Thanks. Don't spend too much time searching for it, I can always take the discs home and copy them there if required. Would just be nice to do it on the spot!

Re: London Show / Saturday 27th October 2018

I think the others have saved me a job and answered most of your questions - thanks all! The show will hopefully be extra busy this year due to the recent RISC OS Developments and open sourcing news. However that also means it will probably get very quiet when their theatre talk is going on, so grab...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Do you have a roadmap anywhere? See Mathew's slides from this ROUGOL presentation - http://rougol.jellybaby.net/meetings/2018/jun.html why not just have it all in the same folder as the emulator and allow the user to simply drag that folder from the DMG to wherever they wish to install it?

Re: London Show / Saturday 27th October 2018

A bit of a long shot, but is anyone able to bring along a Domesday system, as I don't think we've ever had one at the London Show? Or maybe one of the "emulated" versions that use a PC pretending to be the laser disc player? Impressive bit of digital preservation!

Thanks,

Re: Do we need more ABug meets? If so, where should they be?

It just takes someone to organise it. Preferably who lives in that part of the country. I am sure Bristol would be quite a good one, plenty of people around there. The SW Show is moving to a new venue next year, The Arnos Manor Hotel, which is closer to the centre of Bristol. From my brief visit th...
