20 Year Usenet Archive Now Available!
"New! Google has fully integrated the past 20 years of Usenet archives into Google Groups, which now offers access to more than 700 million messages dating back to 1981. We believe this to be the most complete collection of Usenet articles ever assembled and a fascinating first-hand historical account."
What does this mean for us? Try going to advanced search and searching for Amiga stuff and set the search date to end in, say, 1985 or 1986. Kewl!
Here's an example from 03-1986:
"In the process of working with DeluxePaint, I've discovered several really neat tricks.
1: Instead of trying to write your updated Epson print driver to the Dpaint
disk or trying to write to the file on the Dpaint disk (can you say boom?)
just boot the Amiga with your Workbench disk. Hit ^D right away if your
startup-script eats any memory at all (like with LoadWB). Pop in your
Dpaint disk. As soon as it is validated just type dpaint (or dpaint m or h
if you like). Dpaint gets at it right away. The second time that the disk
stops running (the screen will be blue or else you screwed it - reboot) put
back in the Workbench (if you don't believe me just hit Amiga-N (or is it M)
and see the Requestor). It will go for a while then stop. Put it your
Dpaint disk and it will go and boot up the screen. Now you can print with
your souped up driver. Don't worry when the screen is not refreshed when
the requestor for the workbench disappears. Hit F10 and it will come back."
