NNTPSend - A YAM2NN add-on
If you like reading newsgroups, and did not manage to get Yam2NN 0.85 (26.03.99) to send, might find help from this small tool. Version 0.4a has been uploaded to Aminet today, so it will take about 2 days. (unk) (Translation: mb)

AminetGUI Update
After some time, I did some work on the Aminet-GUI again. This is mostly small bugfixes. Frames should now be displayed without disturbing borders on non-Amiga browsers, too. You can now switch directly from the tree structure to forum and guestbook. The link area has also been updated, adding some new links. In the future it will be possible to add your own links. The implementation of this functionality is still being worked upon, however. I added some auction and exchange websites to the interactive area. I am planning to add my own exchange area, but I am right now still looking for a suitable provider for such services. If someone knows a good provider, or has experience in CGI prgramming, please contact me.

Due to a hard drive crash with PFS-2, it will take some time until the next large update, since I have to completely rebuild my system. This can take some time since I have the majority of my programs from the Internet. On this occassion I can only advice you not to use PFS-2. It was the second crash I experienced. On the first crash I almost lost my complete web partition. The second crash took my dh0: drive down. So I will switch my system to SFS. The introduction of the new directory design will be delayed for said reasons, I am sorry. But I hope it won't be too long. (unk) (Translation: mb)

Screenshots of The Heretic Fortress
The Hyperion Software has now become yet more Amiga-friendly by removing all JavaScript.

Hyperion Software has released first screenshots (title link) of "The Heretic Fortress". This is a multiplayer mode for Heretic II by Wankaroo, with the Amiga version nearing completion fast, and which will be available on release of the Heretic 2-CD.

The Heretic II FAQ and the Features page have been updated. There won't be a 68k version, since the reached performance is insufficient. (unk) (Translation: mb)

Problem with diskcopy v44.5
Andi of Future Visions writes:
The diskcopy included in OS3.5 (System drawer) is unable to correctly read and copy partitions over the 4GB barrier. If this is true for writing I have not yet tested, but I don't think it will work.

If now there is an error on a partition over the 4GB barrier, like the root directory defective due to a crash during writing, and the partition cannot be accessed by the normal file system, a normal user is unable to rescue his data. Tools like Disksalv are unable to access these partitions, and there is no FFS64-compatible "diskcopy" program on Aminet to copy the defective partition to the lower 4GB and use Disksalv on it there. So I urgently recommend not to hold important data on such partitions, since a recovery will be impossible. OS3.5 support has been notified. (unk) (Translation: mb)

New StrICQ version 0.1712
(Version 0.1710): An Enforcer hit was removed that opened the chat window again, making chatting impossible. The userlist still has a bug, which the author knows about. The bug looks like this: If a user goes online in ICQ, it is not noted in the user list. Tip: Select all entries, you can then see who has gone online.
The version available on the server is 0.1712 already.

Amiga in Macwelt 3/2000
In the "aktuell" area, the Amiga is mentioned in the Macwelt:
"Amiga moving again - Amino new owner
The Amiga trademark and accompaining technology has again changed owners. While, after the Commodore bancruptcy, first Escom and then Gateway held the rights, they were now sold to a company named Amino Development, according to a GNN report led by two former Amiga executives. Also according to GNN, Amiga users judge this as a chance for an Amiga comeback, possibly as Open Source." (unk) (Translation: mb)

News from the APUS frontline
The Sunsite server has already seen several new things this year!

For one, there is a new Bootstrap released, and additionally an archive for the Bootstrap with autodetect for WarpOS/PowerUp. Download: ftp://sunsite.auc.dk/projects/apus/boothack.

There is a brand-new, very good Installer for LinuxPPC5. Download: ftp://sunsite.auc.dk/prrojects/apus/install/redhat.

On Olliweb (title link), at CDSUPPORT, there is an archive with Installer and ready-made scripts for updating older LinuxPPC5-CDs from olliweb, which should run with all other linuxPPC5 versions.

At Linux.de there is a link to a PowerMac emulator for LinuxPPC5. In the manual it says that, with the right kernel patches (included), the PowerMac emulator should also run on Amigas with LinuxPPC5! Needed, among others: MacOS8.6 + romfile. (unk) (Translation: mb)

Heise: PC Manufacturers: New Concepts Wanted
"A basic rule of the technological society seems to win again: Innovative ideas and products recieve high acceptance and earn big profits. Holding tight to traditional concepts, on the other hand, leads directly to economical desaster. Not only the manufacturers of the C64, which was leading the way in it's time, had to learn this, when Commodore had to give up all hope for rescue in 1994. In the 90ies of the last millenium, when the Intel x86 based PC-architecture had made it's way for quite some time, users no longer wanted Commodore's products without hard drive - attempts to gain a foothold again with the Amiga came too late."
