RISC OS Soft-Wear

Posted by Andrew Poole on 22:17, 11/11/2002 | ,
 
Fresh from the iconbar mailbox comes the announcement that Sober, a Young Enterprise company based at Egglescliffe School in Stockton-On-Tees, are now in a position to sell Soft-Wear for RISC OS users (and non RISC OS users if you like.)

In their announcement, Andrew Duffell of sober writes: "Sober are pleased to announce Acorn/RISC OS T-Shirts. For as little as 5.99 GBP you could be the proud wearer of our quality soft-wear. You can either use our pre-made design (see website) or send us your own design and we will produce it."

Further details are available on their website, which includes ordering details etc, and includes the up to the minute pricing for the t-shirts.

Sober don't only produce RISC OS t-shirts. They also have a range of other designs, and the facility to make your own online. If that isn't enough, you can also send them your designs, and they can also produce that for you. What more could you possibly want?

I hope there is an agreement with ROS Ltd, they do not approve of using the cogwheel commercially without their consent.

I think that your browser doesn't support frames.

What browser are you using?
Is frames turned on?

I've just (re-)installed Opera 6, and the background is white (which presumably is a JavaScript issue), but is still shows the logo and the "click to enter" link for me.

In IE6, I get an intro screen, in which the background fades from blue to white and then it moves on to the home page. I don't have any other browsers installed so can't comment for others.

Yes, that is what you should get if there is no JavaScript. Javascript is used to fade the bgcolor from white to blue. If the image is clicked on then the site should load fine although the T-Shirt designer won't work properly.

I think I will do some <NOSCRIPT></NOSCRIPT> tags :)

Unregistered user So, is the cog something that belongs to ROL? If so, does its appearance in the screenshot of the Iyonix (pointed out by moss) tell us anything?

Just set the correct background colour in the <body> tag - the final colour, not the start of the fade.

Problem with that is the page will start as blue, then go white, and then fade back to blue :(

Not if the script starts as soon as the page loads IIRC - it shouldn't get chance to show the initial blue. It's been a while since I dicked around with that kind of tartiness though ;)

The cog that appears in RiscOS 5 means absolutely nothing, and your wasting yours and everyone elses time speculating, as speculation always seems to turn into 'truth' :|

You can't stop speculation; but I didn't think anyone *was* bringing any real meaning into the cogwheel icon; people just wondered why it was there...

If people want to take mindless speculation as truth, it's their own problem.

...meanwhile back on the ranch...

I have got the site copied to the correct place so that http://www.mysober.co.uk/ works :D

Add site/ on the end to skip the intro.

Oh, and I didn't mean 'mindless speculation' as negative :-) Read 'idle speculation'. Nothing wrong with it.

yeah sorry the reply sounded a bit harsh - i was half drunk at the time :o
but the 'speculation' atm all about the legality of RO5 and who made it all seems a bit silly, seeing as Castle are a legit. company, therefore if they're going to be selling it then its highly likely that they've sorted that all :)
