News from Wakefield [Updated]

Posted by Andrew Duffell on 17:17, 21/5/2005 | , , , , , ,
 
Update: I'm home now, and have copied more photos off my phone onto the live page.

I'm on the train home from Wakefield, so will keep this brief, and some names may be wrong because my connection is too slow to check them. Monkeyson and myself had a great day, and have got plenty of news and more photos to release later.
The A9 Home is a cute machine smaller than the Mac Mini, and comes with an optional vanity box (!!) for transportation. Runs Select32 (RISC OS 4.40 IIRC), and Adrian Lees ran 26bit !Publisher live in front of the RISC OS press (to cheers and applause from those watching and Stuart Tyrrell himself) at the end of the show after compiling it at the show from the information he got of A6.
Oregano3 is sluggish, but a 10 fold improvement in speed over a few weeks ago according to John Ballance.
Firefox was also sluggish, and took ages to load, but rendering was impressive. I've got detailed notes from UPP presentation that will be posted later.

Link: Photos so far
