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 20th August 2018 
Meet the mini.m and si.zeRO - Bryan Hogan

For those that couldn't make it to the Wakefield show, this month we will have RComp's recently released new machine the mini.m (pronounced "minim") on display for everyone to have a play with and marvel at its tiny size.

The mini.m is basically an ARMX6 squeezed down into a two-inch cube! Despite being small enough to fit in a pocket, it has the same CPU, 2GB RAM, high end graphics (up to 4k resolution), high quality audio over HDMI, gigabit ethernet, and SATA connectivity. To go along with the small size, it is also less than half the price :-)

We will also have a sneak preview of a couple of RISCOSbits products due for release at the London Show in October. First is the mini.mSATA, an mSATA "dock" for the mini.m, enabling the tidy addition of an mSATA SSD drive.

However if the mini.m seems a bit too big(!), then RISCOSbits second new product is for you. The si.zeRO is about a third of the volume, being based around a Raspberry Pi Zero with added USB and ethernet ports, all packaged in an acrylic case.
