Mehdi Ali

He is responsible for the Amiga dying in the first place.. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't even know who Bill McEWWWWWin was!

I think he was in charge of Commodore? I don't know a lot about him but he was generally clueless as far as I know.

This is very true! Maybe we should build the Amiga-time machine to go back in time and drop an A2000 off a tower block onto his head

Second, who is this Craig dude? Is he on this board? His site doesnt seem to have been updated in 7 years.

Well, evidently that's because of the broken counter at the bottom of the page. The password thing is likely due to the provider of that counter (siteflow.com) having changed/messed up something (it's asking you for a password to load the image).

I found the article this Craig dude wrote very disturbing, yet telling of the corruption of western society.

I hope he's found human beings to interact with since 1999.

Hmm just had a thought... we could re-write 'Bills Tomato Game' but have it where you have to fire tomatos at Bills face which have sewing needles poking out

Yeah! Let's call it "Kill Bill", and also let's make a movie with the same name.

Steve Kennedy hands Bill a certificate acknowledging Bill's patronage of the Amiga Downunder User Group.

Later that night he set a turd wrapped in newspaper on fire and left it at Bill's hotel door

I did a search on the net a little while back and there were pages about this guy that were truly stupendous and horrifying. Killing projects just because he could, and resulting in A4000 having less power than A3000+ and arriving later, etc.

Reference to it here (there are more webpages to be found, at own risk):
http://www.seal-amiga.co.uk/news/int...interview.html

Found another link, apparently an effigy of him is burned in the deathbed vigil video, such is the high regard:
