Apologies all round, it seems our venue page is a tad out of date. :)

A more up to date venue page can be found HERE

Apologies also for such short notice


Bill Thank you for your offer of posters etc, However, it's a bit late now. Not even DHL could deliver on time :)

Personally It is well documented that I am following the A1/OS4 route, However, some ANT members may feel differently, I am not as complete a zeolot as I am perhaps percieved,

If people are interested in Pegasos/MOS then I wish them all the best with no animosity at all.

Wish we could just respect each other's choice without having to constantly mud sling.

I will post photos on event later :)
YNWA!

Hi guys!

A quick report of the User Group Meeting:

Lots of interest in both my Pegasos (G3) and Mick Sutton's A1 (G4). Studies of both motherboards were made by all and I think everyone was impressed by both boards build quality and neatness and also by the towers!

Mick's A1 of course just had Linux on it but he spent most of the afternoon fiddling with it as the gfx decided to go south on him possibly due to the mix-match of mac/linux/pc drivers set into the Hyperion Linux cd. It appears to work fine for a time and then starts to screw the system over! (hey, how is that different to my PC?? :)

The Pegasos of course has MOS1.3 and needed a fair few reboots due to me deliberatly showing which programs refuse to run on it. Lots do run of course but lots dont! :(

Part way through a fella called James (www.teamlee.co.uk) came along with several boxs, a new monitor and a "not-even-unwrapped" Amiga1 motherboard.  Another ANT member proceeded to help him get his motherboard towered and setup and booting via the Linux CD.  Ironically enough his tower is the same one as mine - just black in colour and with bubble tubes up the edges of the front pannel.  Nice! :)

He seemed well chuffed with the machine and level of support and friendliness available at the meeting.

As for Rob's Hollywood tut: it went down well, he explained how everything worked, and what was new in the latest version and also some of the drawbacks of the scripting language. Everyone seemed quite possitive about its capabilities.

So, along with the Donuts, drinks, and other niceties things went down well!

Shame it was only the "regulars" and me, Mick and Rob from SEAL there - usergroups NEED people to make a small trip (1 hour for us seal folks) to make these things worthwhile.  Seal itself has become a 4 or 5 people meeting and we cant really sustain things on that amount of people. More people and more machines brought to each meeting are needed. Please try folks! :)

TTFN!

So ....... Anyone fancy starting a user group up our neck of the woods?

Absolutely - I`m a complete novice when it comes to building computers but assistance was at hand - and it was effectively built for me (thanx dudes)  

If you`re in the North London (or even London) area, the guys from both ANT and SEAL are more than happy to welcome you along...

And I even had a look at Sam`s Pegasos, which is the first time I`ve really seen one, fantastic stuff (don`t slay me A1 owners :)  and quite Amiga like, which surprised me....

Anyways, thanks again guys for everything and see some of ya at the next meet.

@Bifford

Might see if I can make it down to a SEAL meeting if you`ll let me  :-D
