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

|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.
