Moving to RPCEmu for RISC OS on my Mac

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:44, 13/3/2020 | ,
 
In a previous article I wrote about how the new version of MacOS would no longer run my current emulator. While there are some hacky work arounds for Virtual RISCPC, there is no indication of an update which will allow it to run on the new MacOS release.

Drag'n'Drop Autumn 2019 edition reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:21, 22/11/2019 |

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:37, 15/11/2019 | ,
 
It has been a long time in the making, but Archive 24:5 is finally out!
 
It is a solid 56 page edition catching up on developments in the last year or so. Jim Nagel is an old-school journalist (I still fondly remember his Computer Shopper columns in my youth) and he maintains very high production standards for the magazine.
