Review: DVD Burning on Amiga w. LiteOn 8x DVD-RW
The South Wales Amiga User Group (SWAUG) has a DVD burner LiteOn LDW-811S DVD+/-RW on Amiga with software DVDRecord test.
Among their other product reviews
SWAUG rates the product at 89%. Worth noting is that the software in question only supports the Minus format for DVDs. However the LiteOn burner can be inserted otherwise easily at the Amiga and is cooperative in its CDRW functioning, for example it also should work with MakeCD. (snx) (Translation: dm)

AmigaWares: Amiga Apparel by Randomize at Computer City
On account of inquiries about "AmigaWares" the Canadian firm Randomize has notified the Dutch dealer Computer City that they may import Randomize's Amiga apparel for European fans.

In spite of the import fees and the Dutch value-added tax, and owing to the current exchange rate of the dollar, these goods may be offered for about the same price Randomize designated in U.S. dollars - the euro amount may be found by multiplying the dollar price times 1.1.

You'll find an overview in the Fanware section at the new webshop of Computer City. Please mind that this shop is still under construction and the orders and resulting delivery and handling costs must be manually calculated. (snx) (Translation: dm)

Study: 62 Percent of all Internet emails are classified as spam already
With their new February statistic the anti spam company Brightmail want to show that about 62 percent of all emails can be classified as spam actually. Most spam messages are adverts for products (24%) and financial services (18%). 14% of the spams are classified as "for adults only" and 15% are deceits, including "phishing" i.e. the angling for confident customer information.

The statistics are created frequently by Brightmail's network of bait and switch postboxes. The so called Logistics Operations Centers (BLOCs) in Dublin and San Francisco process catched spam messages all around the clock and create more than 30,000 new filter parameters daily for their anti spam software. Two years ago only 7 percent of all emails were spam. (nba) (Translation: ub)
