USB: RapidRoad might be destroyed by hot plugging USB devices
In a thread on a1k.org, owners of a RapidRoad USB expansion from Individual Computers report that their hardware has been destroyed by plugging an external device into one of the USB ports while the computer was turned on. This process is referred to as 'hot plugging' and is actually a central part of the USB protocol - but in some cases seems to result in a dead RapidRoad.

Jens 'Paradroid' Schönfeld from Individual Computers explains (German) that some power supply units react to a sudden increase of the load - i.e. when the users inserts a USB device - with a voltage peak that might be fatal for the RapidRoad. Due to the low amount of known cases, the vendor is currently unable to identify problematic PSU types or additonal circumstances that might worsen the problem. He generally advises users to stay away from ATX power supplies though.

According to Schönfeld, he still has a sufficient number of RapidRoad units in stock ro replace expansions that break down during the warranty period, since so far he had to replace only 13 cards. (cg) (Translation: cg)

FPGA Expansion: GRETA for Amiga 500
GRETA is supposed to expand an Amiga 500 by 8 MB SDRAM, an ethernet controller as well as a port for MicroSD cards and a freely usable I/O-port. It seems that the development of the board has been finished but since 2013 obviously the programming of the FPGA was not continued: Currently GRETA only offers additional memory. All other features still have to be programmed. The documentation of the projects are available on Github under the GNU General Public License. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Brian Bagnall: Information on preorders of "Commodore - The Amiga Years"
In an article on amiga.org, author Brian Bagnall has pointed out that the second part of his Commodore biography which was financed by Kickstarter has delayed a lot so that his distributor recommended to cancel the original 2015 Amiga book. If you have preordered it at a dealer you will soon got informed that "Commodore - The Amiga Years" will not be published.

According to Brian "this does not mean the actual book is cancelled". It is done "because large retailers will begin to drop their preorders when a book is delayed too much (the book was originally scheduled for late 2015 and has been pushed back to summer 2016)". (cg) (Translation: dr)
