It was interesting. Im supprised that RISC OS had such a dedicated following. I was pleased to see a working BBC Doomsday Project system up and running. Its one of 4 known working systems in the UK.

It was worth the visit - even just to see the doomsday machine running.

I've never been to a RISC OS event, what was it like?
Was there plenty of Acorn machines about to play with? and any new RISC technology?

I spent most of the time on Jasons stand, so did not have a long look around. Had old RiscPC700s and the like, and the newer A9 iyonix stuff.

They had some new video card podules. Lots of software to buy.

They also have one in Birmingham and somewhere else further south.
