The December 2023 issue of 'The WROCC' -- the newsletter of the Wakefield
RISC OS Computer Club -- is on its way out to members across the UK and
beyond this weekend.

In this issue, we look at problems with the Real Time Clock on the Pinebook
Pro when coexisting alongside Manjaro Linux, along with what can be done to
prevent damage to RiscPCs and A7000s from leaking clock batteries. There's a
look at installing AltKeys on a Pinebook Pro, and a project involving
RiscOSM, mapping archives and signalboxes. The discussion about the command
line continues with *Echo, and a member looks back at some of the latest
technology from 25 years ago.

The delayed November issue came out earlier in the week, and contained a
report on our July meeting, when Andrew Rawnsley showed us how he uses
RISC OS and Windows side by side, whilst also looking at a way to make Linux
and RISC OS work together on a PiRO Qube. There's a detailed look at setting
up NetFetch or Hermes to work with multiple email accounts in a
DMARC-friendly way, we re-visit the question of command line aliases from
October, and in a continuation of our ongoing series of what-ifs, consider
what might have been if only the A3010 had been a success in the games
market after all.

Between them, the two issues contain 32 pages and over 13,500 words on
subjects relating to RISC OS or WROCC.

See for more details of recent issues,
and to download samples of older ones.

Able to trace its roots directly back to the first Wakefield Club newsletter
in April 1983, these days 'The WROCC' is produced in an A5 booklet layout
and copies are delivered free to WROCC members in PDF format. Membership of
the Club costs 7.50ukp per year... and despite our name, there are no
geographical restrictions.

The Wakefield Back Catalogue Issue 13

Relaunched following the completion of Volume 40 of 'The WROCC' in April
2023, the thirteenth edition of The Wakefield Back Catalogue contains PDF
copies of the Club's monthly newsletters going from 'The WROCC' and 'Awake'
right back to the very first "hints & tips" sheet handed out at the April
1983 meeting.

The new compilation contains around 440 issues and is available as a
download in these more 'virtual' times. It costs 7.50ukp for non-members,
whilst members can buy it for the discounted price of 5.00ukp. See for more details.
