Ziggy forwarded a message from Stephen Marriott: We are pleased to announce that the rights to manufacture and sell the Surf Squirrel, Classic Squirrel and Whippet products have been sold to Analogic Computers. This means that all marketing, sales and support is now handled by Analogic. Squirrel files will still be available from the HiSOFT ftp server - - but without any support from HiSOFT. Analogic contact details:

Analogic Computers (U.K.) Ltd
Units 6 & 8, Ashway Centre,
Elm Crescent,
Surrey KT2 6HH.
Telephone: +44(0)181 546 9575

Email: sales@analogic.co.uk

Please note that the Squirrel names are still owned by HiSOFT. Analogic has the right to use the names, to manufacture the products and to sell worldwide.

We are sure that the Squirrel has found a home where it will be cared for and this will ensure it a long and happy life :-) Good luck and best wishes to all at Analogic.

Well, I suppose we shouldn't expect IBrowse/any other Amiga products
support from HiSoft aswell... :/

Hi soft seem to have some updated ibrowse and squirrel files on their ftp, I'm probably not the only one not to have heard about these.

What support? The Amiga software scene has reached the point where users are required to pay for software that is not fully functional (V3, iBrowse, mFTP, etc). Quite sad.

In reply to Comment 4 (Adam Szymczak):
yes, it is sad that it has come to this, but to be honest, i am suprised the support has lasted this long. The companies that are left are having to go to these measures to bring us software. There is VERY little profit left in the amiga at the moment, especially when it comes to software. hardware is a little better, because you cannot pirate a piece of hardware, but software is on its very last legs. I see it all the time. the shear amount of people who have pirated software, and dont even bother to hide the fact makes me sick.
But there you go, what can you do?
