News update from individual Computers

New linux drivers for the Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper
Amiga One supports PCI POST code display
New distribution channel
Deathbed Vigil DVD in stock
higher shipment cost starting march 1st, 2003
Dirk 'Doj' Jagdmann has updated his Linux-drivers for the Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper. In addition to SID functions, joysticks and an Amiga keyboard is now supported. The drivers, as well as the source codes, can be found on the author's website: http://llg.cubic.org/cw/.

The Amiga One now supports our PCI POST code display. The diagnostic tool shows valuable information during system startup that can be debuggin-information for developers, or give hints for technicians in case of a defect. The cooperation with the development team of the Amiga One and Amiga OS4 has also been intensified on another field: Parts of the source code for the keyboard driver for the Catweasel MK3 have been given to Hyperion.

We're especially happy to announce that individual Computers has found a new distribution channel: The wholesaler APi has started selling the PCI POST code display under article number 11008. Several tenthousand PC-resellers and workshops now have an easy possibility to get hold of this useful tool. APi does not sell to end users.

Deathbed vigil DVD in stock: The must-have collector's item, the DVD-edition of Dave Haynie's movie about Commodore's demise and lots of bonus material is available and in stock. It's a DVD+R in NTSC video standard. All players convert automatically from NTSC to PAL-60 if necessary. Since some stand-alone DVD players have problems with DVD+R media, please check for compatibility before you buy. In any case, the DVD can be played back with a PC. The best thing: Each DVD has Dave Haynie's signature! Price: 39,- EUR.

Bad news at the end: The Deutsche Paketpost has informed us in an automatic mailing that shipment cost will go up by more than 68% on march 1st, 2003. Therefore, we can only offer the special domestic rates of 4,- EUR for pre-paid goods and 8,- EUR for cash-on-delivery until the end of this month. Starting march 2003, we'll only ship with the Deutsche Paketpost in exceptional cases, we're already negotiating with UPS and DPD/German parcel service. International shipping rates are not affected.

I'm not a huge fan of the 'dark' look on websites, but I must say their website is vastly improved from the last time I looked at it...admittedly that was years ago, so this is probably not a super new website for them.

just first time I saw it....its kind of cute with the tv motif.

In reply to Comment 1 (MarkTime):
I agree. Black works well in this case as it does not contain large amount of text. White is better for informational purposes (such as ANN or Amiga.org). The black background/white text used on MooBunny is tiring after a while.

"MooBunny is tiring after a while"

You can manage for a while? The eyestrain on that site is unbearable for myself after a few seconds.

Cool... I hope this means that OS4 will support using an A2000 or A4000 keyboard in an AmigaONE with Catweasel :) Amiga keyboards are expensive, but they're still my favourite!

Yes, I agree. PC keyboards are almost all made of
poor quality plastic and do not feel right. I
have an ok keyboard for Amithlon but it's not nearly
as nice as using my A4000's keyboard. When I
get an AmigaOne it would be very cool to use an
A4000 keyboard.

black websites kick ass. some people do it as followers, some do it as leaders,
either way, the computer monitor was never meant to look like white paper. It's an additive color process and the best contrast comes out with stuff on dark colors.

Paper / printing, OTOH is subtractive, stuff looks clear on white.

Jens' site, even though it's been at that design for a while, still looks good simply because of the motif he chose.
