To be honest, I don't think it's appropriate to be advertising non-Acorn
hardware on an Acorn newsgroup.

Non ARM based, RISC OS native hardware then if you're being pedantic. :-)

So, no hard drives, memory, flash cards, printers, etc, etc, etc.
Frankly, it's an arbitrary distiction.  I think you have better things
to complain about Paul.

Would csa.extra-cpu be a more sensible location? There are many
parallels between VRPC and what the group was designed for.

I find it interesting to talk about hardware that works well with VRPC
- let's leave it here. What do other's think?

Especially when its so slow - I'd want a 2 Ghz Centrino if I made the

Be fair.  CJE are, at least, offering them with VRPC-SE.

In support of the pedantry, the original post was on
csa.announce, csa.hardware is probably not the best place to follow-up.

There is an argument to be made for csa.extra-cpu which I tend to agree with.
It is of course the moderator who decides the follow up group!

Personally I would much prefer to be selling a native RISC OS laptop, but

We here at CJE do not sell desktop PC with VRPC only laptops as we won't to
encourage the sale of Native RISC OS hardware i.e. The Iyonix and hoefully
the A9:-)

p.s. We will be closing at 1p.m. today so get your orders in early!

We will be here next Wednesday, Thursday & Friday but only 10.00-5.00
Then back in on the 4th of january

Which newsgroup would be the best place to follow up a posting about
hardware?

I didn't know c.s.a.harware was moderated.

And I've no objection to a RISC OS retailer advertising PC hardware here
which will run VA applications. If they can do ARM emulation, then they
have a place in the c.s.a.groups.

Shouldn't the Iyonix be moved to extra-cpu as it's different to the ones
we use on ACORN machines? ;-)

Merry Christmas

It's not.  The original post was to csa.announce (which is) and it was
created with follow-ups set to csa.hardware.

Don't know. Someone has suggested csa.extra-cpu, but that would also
bring out the pedants (me?) as there is only one processor ;-(
Csa.misc takes just about anything Acorn or RISC OS related (and often
unrelated), so that may be right for it. RISC OS emulation has to have a
home somewhere.

Hmm, tricky...

cas.announce is of course correct for the announcement, and .misc is
indeed one possible place for follow-ups.  As mentioned by others,
extra-cpu could be used instead, but as I see it would need one of the
following three possibilities: (1) acceptance by users that the name
of the group is now not strictly accurate; (2) a change of the group's
name to include the expanded use; or (3) forget it and create a new
group entirely.  (1) or (2) would no doubt require a change to
extra-cpu's charter, and any of the three would need appropriate
updates to the c.s.a. FAQs.

Overall, it would be easier to follow-up to .misc I suppose, but at
least there are other options if preferred.

So what's wrong with setting up a new group for emulated RISC OS?

Unless all the other groups were to be changed it would be sensibly
called comp.sys.acorn.virtual

I don't know -- that was my option (3) after all.  It is for those
more conversant with these matters to comment on the suggestion, but
it is one possibly way forward.

It is probably about time that the "acorn" bit were to be removed
altogether anyway, so this might be the occasion for an overhaul of
the whole structure and including such recent developments as
VirtualAcorn (both types) in the revised structure's remit would most
sensibly be done at the same time.
