Mike H installed Mint 17 Cinnamon onto his Dell laptop. A discussion took place about the best desktop to use on older hardware, Cinnamon or Mate. Michael was happy with the end result, Mint 17 was much faster than the original Windows Vista.
Kieran and Richard made an island on Minecraft - Kieran making cobblestone with lava and water. Richard was collecting "hard core" getting ready to build.
Kathleen was "house building" on Minecraft - creating walls and fencing etc.
Various discussions took place comparing processors; virtual machines; old versus modern technology, and various hardware suppliers.....
Brioche, Biscuits and Jelly Babies were available for all (thanks to those who brought the treats) and Mike was the perfect coffee/tea Host and space provider as always.
Thank you to Elizabeth for writing this post.
This week I finally found a use for my Raspberry Pi, a RISCOS laptop. I use the term 'laptop' loosely, because it needs mains power (no battery) and an ethernet cable (no wireless) but it can be used on your lap, and can be folded up to fit in a laptop case.
RISCOS makes heavy use of the middle mouse button, which the laptop does not have. Winmenu maps the windows key as the middle mouse button.
And to end the session, some assembly language examples from a book by Bruce Smith, former technical editor of the Acorn User magazine.
