What is your current RISC OS setup? (Jeffrey Lee)

Posted by Jeffrey Lee on 08:00, 12/4/2020 | ,
 
Often changing on a daily basis:
 

 
On top of the desks, from left to right:
  • A Windows PC for gaming, heavy-duty web browsing, and TV (via a TV tuner card).
  • A couple of 25" 1440p monitors. They're side-by-side, but I'm not actually using them for multi-monitor stuff! Left monitor is for Windows & 2 random ARM boards, right monitor is for Titanium, Iyonix, and 1 random ARM board.
  • An old 15" DVI+VGA monitor (RiscPC + 1 random ARM board)
  • An iMac and a couple of tablets for working from home during the pandemic
  • A StrongARM RiscPC, generally only used for compatibility testing
If you look hard enough you should also be able to spot a BB-xM, IGEPv5, iMX6, Pandaboard, several Raspberry Pi's, and a USB switch which is used to allow the Iyonix & Titanium to share a keyboard.
 
Under the desk are the Iyonix, Titanium, and an ARMbook. The Titanium is my main RISC OS machine, although there's still lots of old stuff on the Iyonix that I haven't copied over yet. There's also a wireless keyboard/trackball combo that I use with the ARM boards - very useful for saving on desk space.
 
Out of frame there's another tower case which houses a headless Linux PC, which mainly gets used for source control stuff, GCC cross-compilation stuff, and as a general NAS.
 
Other Computer setups
 
If you want to add yours, send us send a pic and an intro on your RISC OS related setup (email to markstephens At idrsolutions.com), and we will add it.

Wow, how come everyone is so tidy. My desk and workspaces look like an explosion in a IT junkyard unhappy

My God!
That looks pure luxury to me. My wife decided to revamp my computer room some months ago in order to put in a guest bedroom. This cannot be used due to this virus so my son now has to work from home. He is doing training of his distant work colleagues. Teaching Spanish grammar to Spanish students in Spain and Mexico. Plus suggesting the best online Spanish language text books to others who cannot attend school in the UK. He says that I am rubbish at languages as to get the best
Benefit a student has to ‘live’ the language. This something that didn’t come up in the OU.
Cameron and Nick Clegg have a lot to answer for.
On a positive note while the OU has declined in the UK , it now has 18 million students worldwide.

You may have noticed that there isn’t much PPE for nurses. This is partially because the UK government ‘thinks’ it has left the EU without any negotiations. The ONLY supplier in the World that can guarantee PPE supplies is Turkey. The UK is not a listed country and no one can rely on Trump. I’m pretty sure that Johnson’s Government chances of getting nurses PPE has severely declined since he suggest that Erdogan has sex with a goat. Johnson has obviously forgotten the WWW2 phrase that Loose Lips Sink Ships.

I knew there was something I forgot to add. This Tory Party now wants to join the World Trade Organisation but one member who is a leading light in that Organisation is Putin. Does Johnson have the guts to ‘ shirt front ‘ Putin 7 dan judo expert ?
Johnson is not Margret Thatcher who read every government document and was a devil for details. Johnson appears to delegate everything to someone called Cummings.
