Re: Raspbery Pi Forth Operating System

If you are after re-living your youth with Forth then give Fignition a go. [www.fignition.co.uk] You buy parts for an old-school 8 bit computer (for about £25), assemble it by soldering - slightly daunting but I managed it and had never soldered before - and then on start-up it launches into a Forth...

Re: Using RISC OS with a 2 button mouse

Solved - my Windows keyboard button is now my 3rd mouse button. Raeddie, there is a copy of SparkFS built in so getting WinMenu to extract and run was so easy. I'm impressed how simple RISCOS is - I'm more or less a complete novice to it (I had an A310 in the 90s but nothing since) and so the fact t...

Using RISC OS with a 2 button mouse

Hi all, Just got myself a Pi and booted up RISC OS on it. With the exception of having to put "sdtv_mode=2" to get it working using Composite out it was all far easier than I thought. One question though (for now at least): I only have a 2 button mouse. Without buying a 3 button mouse is there any w...
