Please note that this software was written to work with Risc OS 3.7. It may work with later (and earlier) 26-bit versions of OS but is unlikely to work with the 32-bit versions on the Iyonix.
There is nothing I can do about this. My Risc PC died early in 2005 and nothing I have tried will bring it back to life. All the source code is on its hard drive. I probably do have copies on floppies but without access to the machine I cannot read them.
The software on this site was last updated on 8th August 2001
Here’s a few bits of the software which I’ve written over the years for the Risc OS machines.
- Out to Lunch
0.34, 22nd December 1992
Screen saver with configurable displays.

Little utility to help set up Iiyama LCD monitors. Supplies the pattern, test.bmp, mentioned in the monitor’s manual centred on the screen.
0.46, 17th October 1999
Mailing list server for use with the ANT Internet Suite. This is beta software.
Note that this program has very little in common with the Unix program of the same name. Calling it majordomo is almost pure conceit.

(Fonts: 12 April 1998)
Clock which counts down the time until the start of the next millennium.
Well might you wonder ‘what’s the point, the millennium’s gone’. Well, mine is quite happily counting down to the next one. It’s a talking point.

Needs Marcel 1.26 or later.

The software on this site only runs under Risc OS. It will not run under Windows, DOS or any other PC thingy.
Of course it won’t run under Mac OS, Unix or any other operating system either but then if you use one of these you’ve probably sussed that out already. It seems to be only PC users who have trouble in this respect :-)
