Moving all new posts to Epsilon's World Blog

I have decided to unify all my various blogs under one unified blog called Epsilon's World.

All articles I have written for Epsilon's Amiga Blog, Epsilons C64 Blog, Interesting Trains and Virtualised (I'll bet you never read that one) are now all available on the new blog. This allows me the freedom to blog on any topic without being typecast and maintaining multiple blogs.

This particular blog will remain as it is now, due to the large number of internet website and social media linking directly to articles here.

Game Review: The Pawn

One of the Amiga games that stuck in my imagination forever despite dating back 35 years ago is The Pawn. This game, initially a text-only adventure developed and published for the Sinclair QL in 1985, was written by Rob Steggles at Magnetic Scrolls and soon became a hit due to its peculiar nature of making […]

Wayfarer 1.1 Web browser using MorphOS 3.14 on X5000

It is good to be back talking about NextGen Amiga updates again in 2020. Today I am taking a look at  very exciting web browser update for MorphOS called Wayfarer version 1.1, promising modern web browser functionality using the latest Webkit version.

Setting up a SCSI2SD on HP 167xxA for CDROM and HDD targets

This quick guide contains instructions on how to setup, configure, burn, and launch an install from a SCSI2SD when inserted into an HP/Agilent Logic Analyzer on the 16700 series. A fresh install is always recommended, just like for other operating systems like Windows. I do not recommend imaging your previous SCSI drive, and then trying to burn it directly onto the card.

I’m using a 32GB SD card for this. You’ll need to play with the sector count field if you vary from this.

A Tale of Two Vampires

Sorry for the delay in blog posts, but today I try to make up for it as I bring you a tale of two Vampires, featuring AmiKit XE. And even a bit of Gotek to boot. This work was carried out throughout the whole of August.

Evaluating Battery Backup Solutions for CPAP machines

I recently had a need to provide a battery backup solution for a CPAP machine. A CPAP machine helps people, who suffer from sleep apnea, get a good night’s rest. About 20 million Americans suffer from this condition. This machine provides a large amount of heated, humidified air through a mask. Motors (like those driving a large air pump), and heaters (heating the water to prevent drying out membranes) take a lot of power. The CPAP machine consumes 35w nominally, and 90w peak.
