The Icon Bar Technology news and views Elesar brings back Font Directory Pro for modern machines http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1349.html Acorn brought us the exciting world of fonts RISC OS Interviews - Vince Hudd http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1347.html This time round we interview Vince Price Hudd. He talks to us very candidly (maybe we might tell people in future that it is on the record and being recorded) about his experiences with running Soft Rock Software, relaunching the Bristol RISC OS User group with Trevor Johnson, and what it is like to run the second best RISC OS news site on the planet. RISC OS Interviews - Andy Marks (RiscOSBits) http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1346.html The recent South-West Show gave the IconBar team a chance to 'persuade' some more faces in the RISC OS world to tell us about themselves and their plans. (We will return your wives, kittens, computers, and families safe and unharmed when we receive the finished interviews). So we will be running several interviews in the next few weeks for you to enjoy and catch-up with some of the faces in the RISC OS scene. Spring Issue of Drag'n'Drop Magazine hits the shelves http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1345.html The Spring 2017 issue of Drag'n'Drop magazine was released at the South-West Show and is now available from their website (where you can also see some sample pages from the actual edition). It is the 30th issue, and the team really have pulled out all the stops to make it that little bit extra special. South West Show in Pictures http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1344.html Here is a selection of pictures to show you what the event was like..... South West Show Report http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1343.html The 2017 South-West Show took place at the Webbington Hotel, its regular home. It was a bright, sunny day (at least to start with) and attendance seemed good. The final count is still awaited, and there was also a questionnaire for visitors to get information and suggestions. If you were not one of those visitors, here is what you missed. SouthWest show reminder http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1342.html This Saturday, the 25th, is the date of this year's RISC OS SouthWest show. Organised by R-Comp and Orpheus Internet, the show will take place at the Webbington Hotel, south of Bristol. Exploring Mathematical shapes in RISC OS http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1340.html One of my long-time favourite programs for RISC OS is !PolyDraw from Fortran friends. If it is not already installed on your RISC OS machine, it deserves to be (shame on you). It is fast, fun, educational (and since 2016 it has also been free). It also has that wonderful property of a great game - you can use it pretty much instantly without the manual but it has loads of depths to explore. What are you hoping to see at South-West Show http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1341.html The South-West Show is now less than three weeks away. Given that Companies often gear their updates around the major shows, we generally see a spike in activity around each event. A fresh look at the Desktop Development Environment Manuals http://iconbar.com/comments/rss/news1339.html TheDesktop Development Environment manual is the essential documentation to make the most of the Desktop Development Environment. Both have been adopted and are now updated by RISC OS Open. The manuals come free with the DDE and are also available to buy in printed manual form.
