    Articles: Veneralia Celebrations at STD

    Wednesday, April 01, 2009 - 12:10 AM, (7590 Reads)

    In a surprise announcement, Stuart Tyrrell Developments have apparently produced some new hardware for the Risc PC.

    We're not sure what to make of this because the press release doesn't give too much detail, so we're going to just share it with you word for word below because you really need to read this for yourselves...

    Veneralia Celebrations at STD

    Ok, so we're not Roman, but when have we ever let a small detail like that get in the way of a good party?  And, if we're talking of partying, who better to show us the way? Ave Caesar!

    It's been exactly V years since we last marked Veneralia with a product launch so we thought that it was about time that we did it again.

    Last time it was our unique UNIpod hopping onto the stage that caused the uproar and has proved incredibly popular ever since. This year we're hoping our vibrant Vpod will spring forth to a similarly vast audience.

    UNIpod: the only podule you'll ever need
    Vpod: the only other podule you'll ever need ;-)

    It's early in the season and Vpod is still a little bud, full of potential and vitality, verging on blooming but not yet bearing fruit.

    We expect them to ripen by the 25th of April and to have a bountiful crop in time to produce stunning displays at the Wakefield flower^H^H^H^H^H^HRISC OS show.

    So come along and share our vivid Vpod vision!

    Venus Verticordia, the guest of honour at our celebration, had this to say about the Vpod: "I love it already and so will you!"

    Adjusting her myrtle wreath vainly, voluptuous Venus voiced, "Vpod is such a fantastic product, I'm glad you named it after me."

    Sorry, no pictures are available yet. Our artist has run out of #ffcba4, he expects to be able to pick some more up on his way back from lunch.

    He dithered about mixing #ffcda3 and #ffc9a5, but he likes his pictures perfect.

    As far as I can recall STD spoof announcements generally turn out to be real. New hardware? Wakefield could me *most* interesting!
