A600: Some recent upgrades and additions

Hey my friends,

It's being a long time since I posted but I was rather busy mostly from work. Thankfully I never stopped tinkering my lovely Amigas but the time was limited sadly.
Also two weeks ago the AmigaHellas website hosted the 12th Amigathering here in Greece in which my A600 took place. That will be covered in a next article though.

So you have been waiting for Basilisk II 1.0

I'm going to tell you about latest changes for AmigaOS4.1
When we talk about Basilisk its emulator for MacOS7/MacOS8, the different versions the Basilisk II 1.0 was created more or less in 2001 to 2006, after this it was almost no changes to Amiga specific stuff.

23 days To AmiWest 2013!

As of today, there are 23 days until the second AmiWest Programming
conference starts and 25 days until AmiWest 2013 starts. It all
adds up to this:

Have you made your plans to come to AmiWest 2013? You don't want to
miss it.

Introducing Notify

I've just uploaded 'Notify' to OS4Depot. This simple little program is designed to act as a kind of 'middle man' between AllKeys and the AmigaOS notification system (Ringhio). Notify makes it easy to associate a key presses (and a few other events) with on screen notifications.

What am I doing?

You might ask, what I am doing, as neither this blog nor j-uae gets any updates. Well, first of all, I have a life (really ;)?) and was on vacation with my family. Then I have a job (unavoidable, someone needs to pay the stuff in this expensive city). Bla bla .. ;).

Other than that, I really like to play withe the SMP branch ;). No, it is not stable, but I like to see all the effects and I am slowly getting to understand, how the AROS lowlevel stuff works.

At least after some boot-tries, you have a chance to get a relative stable SMP-AROS:

Amiga 500 A501 RAS/CAS dynamic ram timing

So I found myself looking at the dynamic ram timing with a logic analyzer attached to an Amiga 500.

I’m still learning all of this stuff, and after about 45 minutes, I gave up thinking that I was either too tired, or too dumb to catch on to this stuff.

AmiWest Banquet details confirmed

As of today, the AmiWest 2013 banquet price has been lowered to $20.00 per ticket!  We always have a good response to the banquet, and will probably have even more demand at this lower price.


Our new caterer is offering a three-entree meal (roast beef, fried chicken, and baked tilapia) in addition to a selection of vegetables, potatoes, green salad, and two desserts.  There are a few other things included as well , but I'm just doing this from memory.  I got too excited to wait for the official menu from operations officer Chuck Washburn.
