Today's Highlights
  - From a few days ago... AmigaLove (aka Eric K. Hill) tells the tale of his acquisition of "...one of the rarest Amigas ever made - one that was never sold to the consumer market. And this one appears to be entirely unique from its brethren, which I shall soon explain.priceless and nearly one of a kind prototype". Behold the Amiga Development System. WOW!!


Amiga Development System

  - And another user pointed out that one more of these INCREDIBLE systems has managed to survived. The Computer Collection Vienna (currently offline) have their own Amiga Development System. "I want to share a piece of history, let me explain it that way: It is an Amiga before there was an Amiga. Commodore Amiga VELVET REV03, ICs mostly from early 1985, thus six month before official presentation in Lincoln Center!" Behold the Amiga 1000 VELVET (currently offline) DOUBLE WOW!!

Today's Highlights
  - HOLY CRAP!! Another 060 accelerator but this time its for the CD32. Stephen Leary (aka terriblefire) Behold the "TF630 is announced... not working well yet but boots to Workbench". It appears the project started off as an 030. The YouTube title describes it as a "68030 50Mhz Accelerator + 64MB RAM + IDE - New Accelerator 2019!"


I'm so JEALOUS! My A4000 only has a 040 overclocked to 35MHz.


23 Apr 2019

Today's Highlights
  - It finally arrived. Brian Bagnall's last chapter of the saga. Commodore: The Final Years

   
I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend!


20 Apr 2019

Today's Highlights
  - Two interesting links today. The first is a VERY informative interview conducted by the Polish news site www.exec.pl with A-Eon Technology co-counder Trevor Dickinson covering the current situation and some GREAT insight into the future. The second one is a '060' accelerator by CS-LAB for the A1200 that somehow fell under my radar. (Video)

   
Impressive!


11 Apr 2019

Today's Highlights
  - Sad news. Fellow Amiga user and CEO of DreamArtStudio Stefano Buonocore has passed away. He founded the company back in 2008 and was know for the point and click adventure The Secret of Middle City. Close friend and founder of GDG Entertainment, Gianluca Girelli has written a beautiful and touching tribute to him and his memory.


The Secrets of Middle City


5 Mar 2019

Today's Highlights
  - Once again I'm 'blown away' by the creativity and sheer determination of my fellow Amiga users. Projects like this give me hope that the Amiga will be around for years to come. And 'how did I not stumble across this project sooner???'

   - Jeroen Vandezande from the Belgian Amiga Club has thrown his hat into the ring of redesigned A1200 motherboards. Behold the Amiga1200+. This project is a re-implementation of the Amiga 1200 board started from the schematics. Changes and enhancements were made to the original schematics.

  Features
    - All Original AA chips are needed and can be put into the sockets. These include Lisa, Paula, Alice, The two CIA chips and the Keyboard controller.
    - Gayle, Budgie and the DRAM have been removed and the functionality has been moved to a daughterboard. This board can also contain a CPU.
    - Video output has been moved to a seperate output board. This board get all Lisa output signals and also all the typical Zorro signals. This means that an RTG card can be developed.
    - The PCMCIA slot has been removed and in the free space a power switch, boot selector switch (DF0:/DF1:) and a uSD card slot have been added.
    - A single supply universal power input has been added. (15V - 36V) From this the following voltages are created:
      - 5 Volts: main power rail 5 Amp capable
      - 12 Volts: 1 Amp capable
      - 3.3 Volts: 0.5 Amp capable (for daughter boards)
      - 1.2 Volts: 0.5 Amp capable (for daughter boards)
      - Two PC standard 3 Pin fan headers are added to the board.
      - Terrible Fire compatible SPI port for network chip
      - Extension board connector for mouse/joystick. (one is in development that has USB Mouse and two classic DB-9 connectors and autoswitches when fire button is pressed)
   - This project is Open Source: more on Bitbucket

  What is going on here? Has Colanto gained an upper hand its drama vs. Hyperion? From one of the latest court docuemnts comes this little tidbit...

    "On Friday, February 1, 2019, Plaintiff Amiga, Inc. transferred to C-A Acquisition Corp., which is under common ownership with Plaintiff Cloanto Corp.,1 all worldwide rights, title and interest in and to all AMIGA-formative trademarks, including but not limited to the 'Exclusive Licensed Marks' as that term is defined in the 2009 Settlement Agreement (the 'Settlement Agreement'), and the 'Boing Ball' design mark.

    - Directly from AmigaDocuments Twitter "Cloanto buys Amiga (sort of overshadows the rest of the motion):"
    - Or read the full Plaintiffs Oppostion court filing dated 4 Feb 19.
