"AMIGA alive 03 - Juggler (1986) and BoingBall (1984)" is out! This time with a little history lesson: the legendary Juggler and BoingBall demos, shown in the early days of the Amiga, and responsible for stunning the audience. We hope you enjoy it, and as always comments are welcome!
Just stumbled across this video on YouTube of an Amithlon user running the MUIMapparium program on his machine.
I’ve been meaning to look into this program for a while now. Nice to see it working on Amithlon (one of my favorite flavors of Amiga).
Someone on the Amikit X forums has written a forum thread on how to make the AmiKit X system function as a front-end for Windows, running windows programs through rabbithole as well as making the Windows apps have an amiga-look.
Doing this effectively can make your machine look like a very high-end, modern Amiga OS with all the latest app needs being filled in with Windows apps when needed.

TerribleFire, known for open-source Amiga accelerator designs on YouTube, has added the CD32 as one of the devices he is now making cards for.
This one appears to be a RAM and IDE controller card. As his A500 accelerators have evolved over time, I would expect this one to as well.
Check it out here:
So, I’ve never had an A1000, although I hope to one day. However, unless you are using an ACA500 or another hardware mod, you’ll find booting an a1000 is a two-step process: a Kickstart floppy and a workbench floppy.
Someone recently rediscovered a software application that creates a single-disk for booting and is still commerically available. Read about his discovery –> here <–
Today I have been playing around with AmiPodder which is a program that allows you to subscribe and download podcasts from around all over the Internet and play these either […]
MorphOS is one of my favorite NG Amiga derivatives but currently, it requires either expensive, hard to find PowerPC hardware or old Mac PowerPC hardware. I’ve personally wished we could run it under emulation like we can now with Classic Amiga and OS4.1FE.
Well, that may soon be possible. The widely used QEMU emulation software (part of which is powering the PowerPC cpu portion of WinUAE and FS-UAE), may soon enable MorphOS under emulation.
Okay, about 4 years ago (or so), I wrote up a quick guide for using Dropbox transparently from within Windows emulation, so that it looks like a native app on the Amiga side. It was a very simple guide with linked screenshots.
As I’m planning to get Amikit X soon, I’ll be following my own guide soon to get desktop access to syncing with dropbox on the windows system.

Our second - still rather tiny - software release is out. It's rewincy v0.8, a Workbench commodity for AmigaOS2.0 or higher. Rewincy will add Windows-"Alt-Tab"-like functionality to your Workbench: cycle through windows and screens, and zip windows, using your keyboard.
You can configure keys and colors, and run it from CLI or Workbench alike. Rewincy is based on M. Cortese's "Altabber", with added features, and just like Altabber it's freeware, of course. It has been cross-compiled from Linux to AmigaOS with vbcc, sources and makefile are included.
Users of Amiga OS4.1 will be aware that running the vast majority their classic games is done through emulation via E-UAE (Experimental Universal Amiga Emulator) and that this process is […]
Our first - tiny, admittedly - software release it out. It's rentp v0.4, a Network Time Protocol time synchronization utility for AmigaOS2.0 or higher.
Here's a usage example:
rentp -o120 0.fedora.pool.ntp.org
...will sync time from Fedora's timeserver, using 120 mins.
UTC offset (=Germany summer daylight saving time). UTC
offset should be supplied, otherwise time will probably be
wrong (unless you live in UTC zone 0).
