"I cannae change the laws of physics!" or so Scotty would say on Star Trek - the original series. Then 5 minutes later he would do just that, allowing Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise to once again save the day!
Today for my first (delayed) blog entry for 2013 I want to take a look at the recently released A-FTP Server application on AmigaOS4 for the X1000!
As briefly mentioned in my previous entry, trying anything more fancy than sending a little data over the network, causes JamVM to wildly crash. I've yet not found the reason for this, it only happens for one particular example (that I've come across) and I can't find any obvious cause for it. It happens right after JamVM has actually ended, and the crash is according to Grim Reaper caused by the process of name "", which milliseconds before was named "jamvm.exe".
AmiWest 2013 is already on a roll. The dates for AmiWest 2013 are October 16-20, 2013. This includes the next AmiWest Programming workshop on October 16-18. We have added a day to the Programming Workshop for a total of five (5) days including both events.
We are also returning to our previous (and best) venue at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95821. We will have information on room rates soon.
We here at AmiWest and the Sacramento Amiga Computer Club wish to thank everyone who made AmiWest 2012 such a great success. Our SACC members, Gold Sponsor Trevor Dickinson, Bill Borsari, Steven Solie, Chuck Washburn, and a whole list of organizers, sponsors, exhibitors and presenters really made AmiWest 2012 happen.
