The still fresh processor developer Transmeta now also warns of intelligibly lower sales in 2Q01. For a reason they mention the bad economical situation which now spreads to Japan, too - Japan is Transmeta's biggest market place.

Though additional manufacturers to produce their own chips could have been gained, orders from Japanese Notebook manufacturers are significant low. Therefore Transmeta adjust their sales expectancy to 40% - 45% below sales in 1Q01 (18.6 millions USD).«

As already announced several times the Benelux Amiga Show in connection with a LAN-party will take place on 23th of June in 2001 in Rotterdam which are organized by the Dutch print magazine called ´Amiga Scene´ and the trader ´Computer City´.

In addition to the already mentioned highlights Hyperion will publicly demonstrate the Warp3D on a Prometheus PCI-Board with Voodoo3 graphic board for the first time. Ben Hermans, Hans-Jörg and Thomas Frieden and Timothy de Groote are pesent.

A Dutch television station will make recordings of the show and will broadcast it in the programme '7 dagen' ('7 days'). The broadcast will show people who keep their proper distance to Microsoft and rather do not want something to do with it. You could not describe the Amiga community in a better way, could you? :) (ps)

Virus Help Denmark: Safe Version 15.9
With the viruschecker ´Safe´ you can look for virus but you can not eliminate them. It follows the details to version 15.9 which has been published today:

Name: Safe v15.9
Archivename : Safe.lha
Archivesize: 33.767 Bytes
Releasedate: 19. June 2001
Programmer: Zbigniew Trzcionkowski
Required: Amiga with OS 2.04+ (xvs.library strongly recommended)

News in v15.9:
  • Added BOBEK2 linkvirus (memory removal and XFD slave to see it in files with VirusZ). This one was very difficult to handle in memory. File detection is very easy and shouldn't generate any false positives.
  • Kicked out TCPPATCH/S parameter in order to make place for code that kills BOBEK2 in memory.

Asyncio.library (68k+WarpOS) update
There's a new update for the asyncio.library with WarpOS support (V40.6). Sadly the last version had the same problems in PPC writing mode than before. This update fixes these problems so that there shouldn't be any more lock-ups on writing with PPC.

If there shouldn't be any problems with it, this will be the last version since there'll be no more optimizations by me that could make the library more efficient.
