Amiga 500 Vampire in action

Here’s a video of the Vampire 500 board on an Amiga 500, surfing the web with the latest Netsurf 3.6 by Arti (there is another Netsurf 3.6 by Chris, author of the OS4.x version of Netsurf)


Amiga x5000 Amiga OS4.1 FE update #1 Announcement

It appears that Hyperion has made enough progress on OS4.1 for X5000 to make an announcement. See this –> link <—.

This appears to be just enough to get the OS working on the X5000.  There is no mention of extended features, as there was also an announcement that a full update for all OS4.1FE users will be available by the end of the year.  Let’s hope that happens.

Bug fixed (hopefully)

Not much progress on WinUAE on AROS the last months.. why?

I never got the harddrive tab working reliable. Adding a new harddrive with the gui always resulted in a TLSF memory allocation error and I had no idea, why. The pool was damaged somewhere..

So I searched and debugged for .. many hours. Too many, so I always stopped hunting for the bug after maybe 5 hours and gave up. And restarted weeks later. And restarted.. and the last start was finally successful :-).

But he also pointed out that he does not like the Apollo. This is no news but this is what he told me:

My apologies for the delay in blog posts but work has been very busy lately and I have had very little free time. This week though I took delivery of the Prisma Megamix music card (A-EON) and X-Surf 100 (Individual Computers) and was very keen to try out both on my Amiga 4000!

The Amiga Song – Eric Schwartz Returns To The Amiga With A Bang!

The Amiga community keeps on suprising us with all sorts of good news lately, and the latest one was today when i found out about a new Eric Schwartz music movie. It is a few days old now and most likely pretty known out there but i decided to hype it up a little anyways. The new animation is so good that i first thought that the song is an Original Amiga only song, as in written for this video.
