Now you can take it with you!
Organizer On A Stick at the RISCOS London show
We are again featuring Organizer On A Stick at the RISCOS London Show,
offering users the ability to carry their personal information with
them and access it on other systems.
We will also be demonstrating the ability to "clone" your personal
data from a master datafile and use it on another machine, as a first
step towards making it easier to use Organizer across a network. This
will be the core development in a new paid-for version of Organizer.
Organizer On A Stick has the very latest version of Organizer loaded
on top of the RPCEmu emulator, running a licensed version of RISC OS
5. The emulator will load quickly and run on all recent versions of
Windows from the memory stick on which it is supplied.
The Organizer data file is saved in the HostFS file, accessible to
both the emulator and to native RISC OS systems (though the file type
may have to be changed to access it).
The latest version of Organizer included with the package, version
2.15, offers a greater range of colours to highlight information.
Until now a palette of only 16 colours has limited the colour-coding
of different types of information. A new Colour selection menu allows
a greater number of colours to be chosen from a fixed menu (30 in
all), or for users to make their own from the 16 million-colour
Organizer On A Stick currently uses the latest version of RPCEmu
(v8.9), with RISC OS 5.17 and Organizer 2.15. A special purchase of
memory sticks means that we are offering the whole package for just
£15 at the show to existing users of Organizer 2.1x.
Those upgrading from Organizer v2.0x can purchase the package for
£27.50; and new users or users of older versions of Organizer for £35.
All packages include the normal zip file of Organizer for loading on
to any native RISC OS platform.
Prices for Organizer on a Stick after the show will depend on the cost
of the memory sticks.
The native version of Organizer 2.14 will be on sale at special Show
prices of £15 to upgrade from v2.0x; and £20 for new users and users
of earlier versions (normally £20 and £30).
Please note, the intention at the moment is not to release v2.15 more
widely, because of the further changes are in the pipeline. It will be
available only at the Show and on memory stick.
Organizer 2 is the personal information manager for RISC OS systems,
and includes Diary, Address Book, Calendar and ToDo sections, plus a
Notes section and Journal facility. Version 2.1 allows users to add
many more user-defined fields to the Address Book, to list entries by
Organisation and to add thumbnail pictures.
