Sounds like silence
The silence on the blog should not be taken as sign of abandonment. Work has been simmering slowly the last few months, however my actual paid work, and other stuff have taken most of my time.
Totally off-topic, but "amiga", too, in a way... ;-)
Munich helps refugees and migrants finding jobs that match their qualifications.
Did you know multiple-gold-and-platinum-record-selling artist Calvin Harris not only created Disco, but he created it on an Amiga computer using OctaMED?
The album, released in 2007, was a major success, spawning two top-10 singles in the UK, and was certified gold in the UK in 2008. It has an undeniable Paula-feel to it, but the production quality is flawless, modern, and... groovy!
Show your appreciation and buy the album!
German Amiga software/magazine/merchandise publisher & dealer "APC & TCP" celebrates it's 25th anniversary in May 2017. APC & TCP started out as a fusion of two german computer clubs / user groups, and went on to become a successful and trustworthy publisher and dealer of Amiga products.
Happy birthday, APC & TCP! Live long, and prosper!
Head over to one of their websites, and show them your appreciation:
I have an old Microbotics / Paravision M1230XA accelerator board, and it's not working properly. Can you help me debugging it?
For starters, a few screenshots would help: SetXA utility window / running, Early Startup Menu boards listing, "showconfig" output, SysInfo screen with speed test results (each of course with a working M1230XA installed).
I mostly test my board with Kickstart 3.0 - are you aware of any issues regarding KS3.0 and the M1230XA?
(apart from the fact that RAM has to be added "manually" / software-wise)
Not strictly Amiga, but this may come in handy for Amiga users, too:
[GIMONS] has built a SCSI virtual drive from a RaspberryPi board, for his vintage x68000 computer. Via a minimal SCSI interface on the RasPi's GPIO connector it can serve as a harddisc, or pretty much any other SCSI device you could imagine (MO, CDROM, Ethernet, ...).
My apologies for the lack of blog posts recently. This has been due to a long personal illness, a death in the family involving travelling to Japan and also work being incredibly busy. Sorry for this but it was beyond my control!
But despite this I have not been idle with my Amigas and indeed have been busy doing work on Icaros Desktop 2.2 upgrade on my Acer AspireOne, Classic Amiga upgrades for my A1200, 2000 and 4000D, and even doing more work on my Amiga 4000T too!
