roundup/witchellThere's been a fair bit going on over the past few days that we have not had time to write about.

New Risc PCs
APDL have sourced a limited number of brand new Risc PCs. These are all unused, in the original packaging and have been stored since new. The specification is: 233Mhz StrongARM; RISC OS 4.02; 4.3GB hard disc, CD ROM drive, 2MB VRAM and 64MB DRAM. Machines are priced at 259UKP with 15UKP postage, and one years warranty.

RISCOS Ltd should have re-opened today after a short break. Finnybank which includes Qercus magazine and FD games will be closed until 13th June for a break.

A9 Roadshow
The next stop for the A9 roadshow will be RONWUG (North West) on Wednesday 15th June at 7PM at Trafford Metrovick Rugby and Cricket Club. [Details]

Software updates
!Tau, the graph-drawing software has been updated to version 1.41. Image processing package Variations has been updated to 0.40b with a vast array of updates including a Dodge/Burn tool. Patrick Mortara has released version 0.96 of !RiscSearch - a search engine frontend. Dave Lambley has released an IPP Device Driver for RISC OS.

What I'm wondering is how APDL came to have a load of brand new Risc PCs which were stored since new? Who would store such things, and why?

You'll probably find that they were in the back of a warehouse somewhere, and forgotten about. Either that, or they were saved for someone who now doesn't want them.

Just a note to say that RONWUG welcomes visitors and doesn't charge an entrance fee so it's a great chance to see the A9home if you can get to south Manchester (Sale) - and there is plenty of on-site parking space.
