Development of SBase4Pro
Russ Norrby of Mr. Hardware Computers, the owners of the "SBase4Pro"-rights (formerly known as "SuperBase 4 Pro"), reports at

"SBase4Pro can now be compiled with the GCC. This puts us into the position to provide PPC versions - for example for the AmigaOne.

The current version is v1.36 from April 2000. SBase4Pro is a very powerful and flexible multi-relational data base. Some of our own products were made using SBase, for example Retail Escort and Video Escort.

At present we are working on many improvements, for example on HTML outputs or the possibility to lock files. (nba) (Translation: sk)

Pictures from Amiga Show in Maarssen, NL
Martin Heine was nice enough to provide us with some meaningful pictures from the Amiga Show which took place yesterday in Maarssen in Holland. The photos were taken by Ron van Herk.

The event was well attended with more than 100 visitors. Genesi presented the Video Microwave, the prototype of an STB case already known from the CeBIT and of course the Pegasos with MorphOS in action. On four Pegasos computers as well as an Debian equipped AmigaOne the visitors could form their own impression of the current state of the two systems. Furthermore beta versions of Bars'n'Pipes and FotoFoto for MorphOS were shown. The possibility to buy Pegasos boards at the ComputerCity stall was also made use of. Furthermore the Access was shown as well as Amiga merchandising goods such as the game "Amiopoly", Amiga antenna balls for cars and mugs and T-Shirts from the OS4 tour.

Lego Mindstorms for Amiga
Today I have released the Amiga port of NQC 2.5 r1 on my homepage. With this it is for the first time possible on the Amiga, among other things, to program the Lego Mindstorms RCX. This can be used to control robots built with Lego bricks.

NQC (Not Quite C) is a language similar to C for the programming of these RCX stones. Furthermore is the communication via the serial interface and via USB (with Poseidon) supported.
