The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club provides a friendly face for all things RISC OS in Yorkshire, the surrounding regions and beyond. Originally formed as the Wakefield BBC Micro User Group in 1983, it is one of the longest established RISC OS user groups and now has members all over the UK.
The group meets every other month to look at subjects relating to RISC OS, publishes a monthly newsletter, The WROCC, and provides an online discussion group to keep its members informed. We also organise the annual Wakefield RISC OS Computer Show, which is now firmly established in the platform’s calendar.
For more information about the group, contact us or visit one of our meetings. You can find out more about RISC OS in our brief introduction to the operating system or discover new hints, tips and tricks in our RISC OS HowTo.
During the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, WROCC is following UK Government guidance and this is having an effect on our activities. Meetings are currently suspended, and we advise members and visitors to keep an eye on the website, newsletter and announcements through email or the usual RISC OS forums for updates.
August 2020 Pot-Pourri meeting
Ruth Gunstone will be talking about using OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) to record/stream input from a RISC OS machine, e.g. her Pi-based ‘LegoComp’. She will then give an overview of her Pi-based OpenMediaVault media server which can supply both audio and video content. She will also give us a short tour of her computer audio system.
Cliff Hatch will give a short account of his experiences operating DEC PDP-8 minicomputers in the 1970s, and demonstrate a modern Raspberry Pi based replica that brings the history of these classic machines to life.
Finally, Bernard Boase will take us on ‘A Voyage Round My Desktop’.
