End user help wanted: VirusZ and xvs.library to become open source
Georg Wittmann (formerly Hörmann) plans to release the source codes of his projects VirusZ and xvs.library after 15 years of inactivity. Before that he wants to make sure that his anti-virus software runs on AmigaOS 4, MorphOS and AROS (m68k): Since he himself does not have most of the systems mentioned, he has written a short program that collects and outputs information about the current computer. He asks that as many users as possible with one of the mentioned operating systems run the program and send him the output by e-mail. (cg) (Translation: bb)

At the title link, Lars Sobiraj did an interview with the german ASCII artist 'Yop' of Shrimps Design. The 45 y.o. had been active since 1993 in the Amiga ASCII scene and recollects how much he did like to work with the text editor CygnusED back then. Today, however, he doesn't own an Amiga anymore and is rarely using an emulator even. (snx)
