    Unlike some RISC OS mags out there with strange unaccountable delays, dubious changes of editor and other fun excuses, RiscWorld seems to be going from strength to strength with the launch of Vol. 3 of the CD based mag...

    This very morning a straining postman collected all the copies of RISC World for delivery to all our eager readers. So in the next few days a shiny CD containing the latest issue will be dropping through doormats all over the world. For those that don't know RISC World is the subscription only CD based magazine for users of RISC OS computers published by APDL.

    This issue sees a number of exclusives, including Dave Holden's visit to MicroDigital to see a working Omega computer. We also have our Wakefield show report and reviews of Crystal, the first Select CD and of course, TEK.

    RComp are pleased to announce that our 100Mbit network cards began shipping today (Saturday). These new cards are the result of a partnership in the RISC OS market ensuring the production of high performance, yet cost effective hardware.

    The new cards set standards in price, performance and features. Fitting into the network slot present in all RiscPC/A7000 systems (no backplanes etc. required), the performance of the card is only limited (on current machines) by the speed at which the processesor can handle network packets, when used on a 100Mbit network.
