A wagonload of big kudos to this guy who still ACTIVELY supports the Amiga!
(Frankly: how much native Amiga software "last updated in 2006" can you count these days?)

Yeah, that's great. I keep a list of all Amiga software that I use that is updated each year and so far in 2006 I've got about 8 programs that have been updated (plus many WHDload slaves). Every year the list gets smaller , but when you think about it, it's still amazing for a computer that died in 1994.

Even more amazing is the fact that a lot of these guys are doing development for maybe 1 or 2 people in the world who asked for specific updates or fixes - custom software development on a dead computer for free!

Hi everyone. New to the board...

I just reinstalled Amithlon a couple of weeks ago (haven't touched the stuff in years)...So far, here's the setup:
motherboard is NForce3 250GB
GForce 6200 (I need to swith this for a supported video card)
160 GB dedicated hard drive (3.1GB System, 100GB Work, 47GB Game)

The AfA antialias fonts break TurboCalc 4 (causes freeze) but works great on all other apps so far. The system will also freeze after a soft-boot and trying to type. I need to resolve that. Watching video from CD using froggerng works, but copying large file from CD (>300 MB) also caused a freeze 1 out of 3 times. I'll see if I can determine if SFS is the culprit. What testing you want to see, I'll try and do it?

I saw SFS 1.70 is out, which is better to use/what's the difference?

Ne'er mind, just saw that SFS2 V2.3 is a year old. I'm going to dl new version SFS 1.270 and rebuild with that. Unless someone thinks I should stick to this SFS.

When will we get SFS DirectSCSI and SFS/68000?

Oh well, I have a legal copy of pfs3 sitting on my shelf, I'll keep on using that, like I've done for 9 years now. :-)
