Getting ready for Archive 26:2


Work is under way on the next issue of Archive (26:2) which will be going 

to the printers in early December. Contributions in the form of articles 

are always very welcome, but there are other ways to get involved. Please 

get in touch if you can help with any of the following:

News - have something newsworthy to report? Something you've created or 

been involved in?

Cover - Archive's cover features photography from RISC OS users, often 

something from their local area, especially if appropiately seasonal.

Lesser spotted RISC OS - Most users have useful applications tucked away 

which have been long forgotten by the rest of the community, yet still 

work fine on RISC OS 5. Archive 26:1 started a brand new column to 

highlight these forgotten gems. Why not take the column over for an issue, 

and tell us about your favourites? To give you an idea, the first column 

kicked off with TopTen from Benoît Gilon, WinSnap from Tony Houghton, and 

LockDir from Paul Vigay.

Letters and emails - Comments on anything RISC OS-related.

Programming - Yellow Pages is alive, and features short, interesting 

programs. It's usually BBC BASIC, but other languages are welcome, 

particularly Python.

Hints & Tips - Everyone can help with these! Have some little RISC OS 

trick that others may not know about?

Email if you can help with any of the above, it 

would be most welcome!
