Amigasys project motivational slump.
 
Dary the Amigasys guy is having a bit of a motivational crisis at the moment.
Amigasys

If you use amigasys or plan to use future versions please help Dary out if you can by either a donation here: http://amigasys.extra.hu/donate.html or leave him some feedback via the amigasys threads on various amiga forums found here: amigaworld amiga.org EAB

Amigasys obviously takes a lot of effort to compile for the various platforms it is available on and webspace isnt free, so if you use amigasys and can help please do. :great

Would be a shame to lose Dary and only be left with amikit. :scream

Thanks for the proposal, I'm glad that somebody cares.

As everybody knows AmigaSYS is a completely free project, however the development and maintenace costs me a lot (time, hardwares, webhosting, etc).

When I released new versions nearly no support and reaction came, but the downloads were increasing a lot. Lack of support made my motivation low.
I was waiting but nothing happened. Regarding new versions the currect situation is not enough for me to continue. That's why I put that donation bar on the homepage.

I would gladly make a new version for the Amiga community, but for that I also need you, to support me with the costs of the development of AmigaSYS 5.

Ps. You'd laugh if you'd know how low is the support needed to reach 100%. Ridiculous..

Dary

Thanks T Hairy, and EAB users.

after readin darys post in the amiga sys thread I do intend to send a donation but not havin a pay pal account I`ll have to get a friend to do it for me.

love amiga sys and think dary needs all the support we can give him

but its a shame that ppl only generaly complain when somethin dos`t work but when its fine don`t say anything at all

hey dary don`t forget to ribbit, works for me when I`m feeling low, but then I am a frog

Added 10 euros.
I tend to set up my WB on real Amiga's by hand. I find tinkering too much fun not to! But that's my own.

Back in the days when I used to fit Amiga HDD's for people in game, I could have done with something like this!

But on WinUae I find Amigasys a must.

What do you mean with this? how are these two related?

T_hairy_bootson 05 May 2009 03:04

It was a joke, amikit is similar to amigasys but imo inferior.

Plus amikit gets kickbacks from cloanto and reports community websites to cloanto and gets them shut down. :bash

amikit is not to be confused with amigakit who is an amiga web shop.

Akira 05 May 2009 03:35

Dumb ME, I was thinking of AMIGAKIT :P

Are they not the same people?

I thought they were because of the link to the website from the Amikit Loading window?

That link was added, due to the very reason mentioned here. People kept thinking Amikit were Amigakit.

It was bound to cause confusion, why they called it Amikit is anyone's guess. Maybe it was done to confuse us, ;).

@dary, we care, :).

@All

You saved AmigaSYS!

I'm glad that the progress bar reached 100% before July.
Thanks for many users who wrote to forums and supported AmigaSYS development.
I also received great help from bigger amiga websites who provided space for the users to discuss the topic: AmigaWorld.net, Amiga.org, Eab, Amigaspirit.hu.

Development of AmigaSYS 5 will begin!

P.S. You can follow the status of the development, in the right section of the site (under versions) you can find a complete status of AmigaSYS 5, the supporters, web statistics, etc.(Now beta)
