    Until recently, RiscDomain has been a rather sporadic publication, missing it's published deadlines by quite a bit. In a recent announcement though, Dave Bradforth, owner, publisher and wizzard in charge has decided that the mag is to come out monthly, with a firm set of titles for each edition.

    It is with regret that I have to announce that I will not, after all, be editing Acorn User magazine.

    When it was announced that I would edit the magazine a group of us were at an advanced stage of negotiations with a director of Tau Press to purchase Acorn User magazine. We understood that it had been agreed that two of our group would work on the magazine for a limited time prior to purchase. Soon after the announcement was made it became clear that Tau Press no longer had any interest in such an agreement. They were no longer willing to sell the magazine.

    Melotech has available two re-engineered RiscPCs, with more on the way.


    Emergency announcement

    We regret to announce that David Atkins of MicroDigital has, due to a personal crisis, had to cancel his visit to Wakefield today.

    David was looking forward to showing us the final working prototype and taking questions from visitors. Due to short notice, nobody else from MicroDigital was available to step in. David sends his apologies.

    The Wakefield Acorn Computer Group meeting will still be taking place, but with an alternative event. This is likely to be a PD night, showing various bits of software on RISC OS.

    We apologise for the short notice.

    Although I had not known Mike as long as many others, I felt that we had become good friends over the last year or so. I often gave Mike a lift in the car to WACG meetings and will miss our little conversations on the journeys. Mike was very good at telling stories about his past and had some really interesting tales to tell.

    Acorn User today announced that John Cartmell has joined the team as editor of the best-selling magazine for RISC OS users. He is at present assisting in the production of the
    Christmas Issue of the magazine and will take over editorial control of Acorn User in time for the first issue of 2002. John has contributed to the News and Graphics columns of the magazine for over 12 months and has also written the RISC OS 4+ previews for the My RISC OS web portal.

    Readers of the Acorn newsgroups may have noticed that John has already asked there for ideas that could be used to improve Acorn User and we would
    like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who took the trouble to respond to that request. Some of those ideas will find their way into the magazine from January onwards.

    Cerilica will naturally be attending the largest RISC OS Show to be held in the South of England on the 20/21st October. Being the first show that Cerilica Vantage (RISC OS' latest 'killer app') will be available over the counter, we are ensuring all visitors will have a great chance to see the package perform before their eyes. For this show, TRUISM 2.5 will presented for the first time illustrating exactly why Vantage will bring RISC OS into new professional publishing arenas. Optimisation has also taken place for users of the ViewFinder video graphics upgrade to provide enhanced redraw speeds.

    The AAUG stand at the RISC OS 2001 show will feature the first ever public appearance of the infamous Phoebe - RiscPC2

    Many rumours have existed about whether such a machine exists - and we can now silence all those sceptics who claimed that Phoebe never actually worked.

    Complete with RevT StrongARM, IOMD2, VIDC20, PCI Slots and SDRAM (although lacking a CDROM and floppy!) Phoebe will be powered up and running so you can see how fast she actually would have been!!
