Available on either CD or USB flash drive, the Soft Rock Software Collection is a compilation of all of the RISC OS software currently available from the Soft Rock Software website – with extras!
A step by step guide to accessing a Windows Share from RISC OS.
Judging by recent comments on the comp.sys.acorn.networking usenet group, it seems there is a lack of documentation on how use the Lan Manager TCPIP client (referred to simply as ‘LanMan’ from this point forward) on a RISC OS computer to access a shared folder on a Windows computer (a “Windows Share”).
It’s show time again, with the next event being just a few days away: Saturday, 25th April – the 2015 Wakefield Show, which will be open to the public from 10:30am until 4:30pm, in the Cypress and Hawthorne Suites of the Cedar Court Hotel, Denby Dale Road, Calder Grove, Wakefield, WF4 3QZ.
The first RISC OS show of the calendar year is the Southwest Show, which takes place this coming Saturday, 21st February – and I will be there as usual representing Soft Rock Software. As with the 2014 London Show, the 2015 Southwest Show will be your next opportunity to purchase one of Soft Rock Software’s own products; the RiscPiC-mini case for the Raspberry Pi.
Soft Rock Software will, as usual, be attending the annual RISC OS London Show, which takes place one week from today. And at this year’s show – for the first time in many years – it will be possible to buy one of Soft Rock Software’s own products: a RiscPiC-mini case for the Raspberry Pi.
Despite having taken prototypes to two user group meetings (Bristol RISC OS Users in July, and Wessex ARM User Group in August), as well as to the Midlands Midsummer MUG Show in July, with plans to sell it later in the year (starting at the London Show in October), the RiscPiC is something that is yet to be mentioned on the Soft Rock Software websites – so it’s about time that changed.
As I said on 20th March, today – 30th June, 2014 – marks the ‘official’ 25th birthday of Soft Rock Software, with the business having been set up in 1989; the bank account was opened on 20th March, and 30th June saw the first transaction on that account. That first transaction, even though it wasn’t a sale – it was me introducing some of my own funds into the business – was what led me to adopt 30th June as my official trading year-end, and is therefore why I consider 30th June the official birthday of the business.
