I offer the following SPECIAL until August 11th, 1999, for all who state "Amiga-News-Aktion" as subject of an ordering eMail:
  • Samplitude Opus FULL VERSION for 127,82 Euro (instead of 204,01 Euro) including p&p within Europe
  • Samplitude Opus UPDATE from LITE or MS to FULL VERSION: 102,26 Euro (instead of 152,88 Euro) including p&p within Europe

Additionally, visitor #250.000 of amiga-news.de recieves a Prelude1200 plus Samplitude Opus LITE (combined value: 203,49 Euro)
Marc, a great idea :-). The relevant counter is that from WebHits, on the left. This counter has a reload lock of several hours, so it's not possible to hit reload repeatedly! Screenshot, with time send to albrecht@act-net.com. (ps) (Translation: unk)

Mandrake was at Amiga
Mandrake, co-developer of the Window Manager for X (Enlightenment) was invited to a meeting at Amiga. Here his statement from his website:
Today I, raster, nettwerk, kainx, and chris dibona went over to amiga to have a little chat with Allen Havemose (VP of Engineering) and Richard Lipes (Director, Multimedia Services) of Amiga. We talked about a few interesting things. I promised I wouldn't say too much about what they told me on my web site, but they might be holding a couple of tricks up their sleeve yet. I also got to leave with a bunch of Amiga paraphanalia - which in and of itself is kinda cool. I don't know what all I can talk about q uite yet, but I'll find out. They were pretty impressed with enlightenment, which is cool - but we did make sure they realized it IS only beta (at best) code and we're not anywhere near done with it yet. We'll see where this goes from here. But I'm pretty excited about maybe working with them on a few things.
This is a repost, the original message had the links screwed up. (ps) (Translation: unk)

Council:

The objective of the AAC is to help us better plan the future of Amiga
through close communications with people who are viewed as leaders in the
Amiga community.  The members of the AAC have all executed non-disclosure
agreements (NDAs), with Amiga and will have access to confidential
information regarding future products and plans.  This allows Amiga to share
sensitive information with respected members of the Amiga community without
having to disclose our plans publicly.

The members of the AAC were selected to represent their different areas of
affiliation within the Amiga community - the Press, Developers,
Dealers/Distributors, and the User Group organizations.   The AAC is
designed to provide a flow of information from the Community to the Amiga
management team and from Amiga back to the community.  Each of the members
of the AAC will act as a conduit to the community and the areas that they
represent.

We held our first official meetings with the AAC in London and in Sacramento
with over 20 AAC members participate in these first official meetings. The
AAC was able to share with Amiga many of the desires, and needs of the
community.  As we work towards the launch of the Next Generation Amiga the
input received by the AAC will help guide those decisions.

"We are excited to welcome the members of the AAC as active representatives
of the Amiga community and look forward to implementing many of the programs
suggested in the near future,  stated Jim Collas, "together we will make a
difference in computing forever."

Rainboot 2.65 released / Original Windows98 Bootup for Amiga?
Andreas Falkenhahn writes:
 1) Rainboot 2.65 released:
On the Airsoft Softwair website, a new version of the famous multimedia bootup Rainboot has just been released. For the first time, the new version offers support for multiple background pics and other new features / improvements.
 2) An original Windows98 Bootup for Amiga?
That's possible now, of course simulated only :-) At the Airsoft Softwair website, the WindowsSimulator Bootconfig for Rainboot has been released. This looks almost 100% like the Windows98 original (start screen, cycle, desktop, icons, taskbar, sounds). A Windows98 startup is faked, leading to a rare Exception suggesting to rather use AmigaOS. The bootup is great for impressing PC friends, at least it worked for me. Rainboot 2.65 is required, since new features of this version are used. (ps) (Translation: unk)

Dangerous tips for solar eclipse
There are hints going around on internet that you could use a floppy disk instead of a special eclipse glass for filtering sunlight - which is not without risk! If you thought about doing so, read the above article by Chip magazine (German, sorry). (ps) (Translation: unk)
