IRC-Server runs on Amiga 500 :-)
I've just noticed that the information text of the EFnet IRC server says: "Running on AmigaOS, Kick 1.3". If you want to see it yourself, just log into this IRC server of the Gigabell AG and have a look at your Whois. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

EZP@gerNG Christmas release
The latest version 1.3 is immediately available - it can be downloaded from the download area.

The unregistered version is free as always. All registered EZP@agerNG users find an update archive there which they can use to update their registered version 1.2 to version 1.3.

The most important changes in this release:
  • Different backfill images are supported for the EZP screen, the main window and the requester.
  • toolbar graphics are evaluated a lot more flexible so that the creation of own toolbars is much easier now.
  • Shell and ARexx scripts to install toolbar and service images more easily.
  • New ARexx command SENDMAIL to make the sending of e-mails through ARexx easier.
  • Arguments can be passed to the ARexx menu item scripts

All changes of this release. A merry Christmas to all Amiga users and a happy new year 2001! (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Happy X-Mas
With this entry in the amiga news, we would like to thank you for the many visits and the great support.

The last year has brought quite some changes to those working on the web. Even at us, the PC and thus Flash5 have made their entrances - which doesn't mean that we will leave or neglect the Amiga sector. On the contrary: there's something planned in the Amiga sector for next year, you'll be pleasantly surprised!

A special thanks to the AMIGA-NEWS-TEAM. Always reliable and latest informations. Thanks also to Stefan Kost (SOUNDFX) and Patrick Meng (SYMPHONIEPRO) for the uncomplicated co-operation.

We wish all who read this pleasant Christmas days and a successful and purposeful year 2001. Your 2IDs.TEAM (unk) (Translation: (unk)

New beta version (V.45.00 beta 4) of stormamiga.lib V.45.00 for StormC
After a long time there's a new version of stormamiga.lib as a Christmas gift from Matthias Henze. The most important improvements in this version are certainly the new, very fast and exact math functions for the MC68040 and MC68060. Other function were also rewritten from the scratch up. Furthermore, there are many optimizations and some bugfixes. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga Extreme takes a break
«Amiga Extreme will be closing for a while. This is because I feel that I don't have the motivation to continue the site, and the fact that there's almost nothing to post, I don't see much of a point in updating. There are better sites for that ( and Czech Amiga News for example).

Once again, this is not the end, it's just the end for Amiga Extreme on the classic platform. The next time Amiga Extreme will open is when the AmigaONE release is closing in on us and when there's some real news for the new platform. I'm already working on a new design and have lots of ideas for the new AE.

Also, the e-mail addresses will still be up, so you can mail me at More info will be posted when it's time. I have no plans to leave the Amiga platform, and I'm confident that the new Amiga platform will be successful. Your sincerely - Stefan "Syke" Falk -» (unk) (Translation: (unk)

FMdriver V1.14 BETA released
Stefan writes:
On my homepage is now an official beta version of my driver system for the FrameMachine video card. New additions include a GrabbingCenter, hardware drivers were moved into a library (68k and PPC), slight speed improvements, localisation of the most important programs and a couple of little things ... :)

I can only offer limited support until February 2001 as I will put all my projects "on ice" to allow me more time for my studies. Thanks for your understanding!

Christmas is soon ... what's missing? Of course, my annual "Christmas letter" ;-), here in English. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Back to the Roots Amiga-News 226
Christmas is near and again another year has passed. Therefore "Back to the Roots" ( brings you some nice presents in form of some wonderful classic Amiga games - as always for free and with permission!

The companies Dynamix and Digital Integration are supporting our project now, too so the flight simulations Red Baron, F-16 Combat Pilot and Tornado are now online. Also the great adventure games Space Quest 1 (the remake!), Colonel's Bequest, Code name: Iceman and others like Thunderhawk, Wonder Dog, Vroom and Warhead!

There are interviews with the legendary Scene-musicians "Jester/ Sanity" and "Clawz/Bomb" online, too! Both are telling some interesting news, not only for music lovers. As usual there were also tons of Scene-demos, pictures and modules from Amiga games and the demo scene added.

We'd like to thank all our visitors for their support during the last year and send greetings to all companies and people who helped us to keep the classic stuff alive. We wish you all a merry X-mas and a happy new year. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

MainPrefs 2.0 Released
For those who want to change environment variables, easily change configuration files such as s:startup-sequence or start the OS preferences programs in a predictable way, now can do all of this with MainPrefs V2.0. New in the program is the possibility to change assigns, and an Italian catalog by Arturo Franzin.

The program requires OS3.5, cause it has a Reaction GUI. It shall be available from Aminet from the next update, but from now also on the homepage under the title link. The programmer Martin R. Elsner makes efforts to further enhance the program and is open for new suggestions.

ANN: Fleecy Discussing
Michael wrote: «Each one who is not perfectly aware of the intentions and attitudes of Amiga Inc. might be interested in the long discussion at ANN (see title link - ca. 350 kB).

Even if it might never happen and MorphOS assumedly would be the better choice, so it might be interesting with Fleecy Moss' statements there in mind for once to consider the "50,000-copies"-edge to be the promise of a solid 4.0 PPC under active headship by Amiga Inc. Contrary to the suspicion this might only be an unsocial lure to gain more income, cause I initially took it by this, too.

It's a pity that always only hard discussions and impeachment generate clarifying answers from Amiga Inc. or other companies. In this case regarding the 50,000 copies promise.» (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Heise: Background details: Microsoft are Stricken
«Crippled due to the cartel case, tantalized by cracker's attacks, and trailed by the general downwards trend of the PC branch the software giant from Redmond now starts to paddle hectically. Because the signs are indicating storm: For the first time after ten years and for the second time in the company's history at all Microsoft had to call out a profit caution for the current quarter. PC sales in the otherwise so opulent Christmas business are stagnating worldwide, thus the best income source stops bubbling the way Bill Gates' crew was used to. After all, almost a third of volume of sales Microsoft draws from the fact that vendors sell PC's along with Windows or other products by Microsoft.»

VirusHelp Denmark: Virus Warning
Today we received a new 'lame' trojan. This trojan will only execute it self if you have named your hard-disk "DH0" & "DH1". The trojan is spread in and archive with the name "DKG-BLUM.LHA". If you run the "DKG-BLUM.exe", the trojan will replace your c:loadwb with another loadwb (size: 3560 bytes) and replace c:assign with another assign (size: 2408 bytes), and the screen will tell you that there is not enough memory, and you will have to restart, then it looks like the trojan will delete DH1:.
The trojan also adds or replaces 2 other files, "LIBS:asi.library" & "DEVS:ASI.device".

The cure right now (If you have lost your DH1: to bad......), then replace the trojan files with clean ones, here is the trojan sizes:

c:loadwb ( 3560 bytes) c:assign ( 2408 bytes) libs:asi.library (24548 bytes - delete if you dont have clean file) devs:asi.device ( 2408 bytes - delete if you dont have clean file)

Here is some info about the infected archive:

Virus Type.... : Trojan
Archive name.. : dkg-blum.lha
Archive size.. : 28.535 bytes (lha packet)

This archive has been send to all the antivirus programers.....

Thanx to Peter Gordon & Urban for the info and sending the archive to us........ (unk) (Translation: (unk)
