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

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]

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.
