What Jessie Did Next...

...being the inane ramblings of a mundane Yorkshire bird.

I’m giving my ‘Teaching Old Micros New Tricks’ talk tonight (Wednesday 20th January) at the RISC OS North West User Group (RONWUG), covering some of the new projects to expand and enhance your BBC Micro. I’m hoping to have a few toys to demo with and have a look at as well as the talk itself.

This is effectively the same talk I gave in Wakefield last year – the presentation is already online in a PDF format here (although there are a few bits altered such as mentioning the Classic Gaming Events Union). Links to most of the products I’ll be discussing are here.

I understand these meetings are open for anyone to attend – it takes place in Sale in Cheshire, postcode M33 6LR. Starts at 7:30pm-ish tonight, depending on when I get there (yay rush hour M62) 🙂


  1. Hi there,

    Just thought i would let you know that we have just submitted iRepton the remake of the classic 80’s BBC Micro puzzle game to the apple app store launching for the iPhone and ipod touch!

    you can check out a video of the gameplay on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/iRepton

    or check out the main mini site at http://www.iRepton.com

    This was one of my fav retro games when i grew up play in the BBC micro and thought this might be of interest to you

    all the best,

    As long as the credits close with ‘the day the routers died’ I’m happy.
