In the 1990s (ca. 1990-1996?) Acorn had 2 offices in Australia, one in
Collingwood, Victoria and the other in Parramatta NSW (also had an office in
Auckland NZ). The addresses are published on the back of the advertising
brochures for the computers from the A5000 to RiscPC e.g.
it is clear that Acorn were selling Archimedes and later computers in
I have occasionally seen Acorn items on ebay and I think I have actually
bought some items from Australia.
How does a project get to be a year late?... One day at a time.
