Meeting: R-Comp

September 2003

Andrew and Allan Rawnsley visited us to demonstrate their latest products, including a range of Windows-based PCs and laptops. With the aid of their Uniprint software, Andrew was able to access a printer connected to one of these from a RISC OS system, making use of the advanced features of the Windows drivers in the process. Another product – Remote Control – goes further, allows a Windows machine to be controlled over the network from RISC OS. The evening closed with a couple more software demonstrations: the Grapevine MSN and ICQ client, and the recent acquisitions of DataPower 2 and Image Outliner.
