ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of Acorn/RISC OS computer users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?

Next meeting - Monday 16th September 2019 
RISC OS Open Update - Rob Sprowson

In a slight change to the advertised programme(*), Rob Sprowson will be talking on behalf of ROOL to update us on what they have been up to in the past year.

Since the successful bounty matching scheme at the end of last year, a number of bounties have been worked on and new ones opened, including important steps to bring the network stack into the 21st century.

The recent arrival of the Raspberry Pi 4 has also caused a number of issues, as its new USB and network controllers are not supported by RISC OS. Rob will give more details and report on progress to update RO to fully support the Pi4.

(*) Rob had hoped to be talking about a new Elesar product, but a flaw in one of the chips used has delayed it. If a fix/workaround can be found then he may still be able to tell us some info.
