Video tutorial: WIFI internet on Amiga with BlueSCSI v2
BlueSCSI v2 is an SCSI solution for retro computers. Based on the Raspberry Pi Pico-W microcontroller, there are further possibilities, though.

The Video at the title link demonstrates how one can also use it to access wireless LAN, thanks to an Amiga driver written by Rob Smith. (snx)

Motorola68k emulation: Status update on the WLAN driver for Emu68
After Michal Schulz had released the first stable version 1.0 of his Motorola68K emulation Emu68 a good week ago ( reported), he is working intensively on a WLAN driver and had made first considerations and tests in a Patreon post.

In yesterday's post under the title link, he now reports that he has made quite a bit of progress with the development: the WLAN driver initialises correctly, scans for available networks and can connect to them. As soon as this happens, you receive data packets (frames) that can now be passed to the network stack.

Michal's next step is to finalise the SANA II driver interface. For the time being he will only connect to a predefined network for testing reasons. Once this is working and he can use the driver with AmigaOS, he will add the wireless features - releasing network scans to AmigaOS, getting signal strength, selecting a wireless network to connect to and so on.

After completing this step, he will either use an available tool or write his own to display the networks on AmigaOS and allow the user to connect. Finally, he will also provide some sort of configuration file to allow the driver to connect to a specific network at startup. As a last step he will then try to implement wireless security protocols like WPA/WPA2/WPA3. (dr)

Hyperion: Bankruptcy proceedings reopened against Ben Hermans B.V. (Update)
Since a restructuring in 2019, the Belgian lawyer Ben Hermans has owned around 97% of all shares in Hyperion (Heretic 2, AmigaOS 4, AmigaOS 3.2), which he transferred to his company "Ben Hermans B.V." a few months later. Since then, this very company also acts as the "Director" of Hyperion Entertainment.

Bankruptcy proceedings had already been opened against Ben Hermans B.V. in May 2021: the annual financial statements for 2019 - the year in which Hermans had transferred its private Hyperion shares to Ben Hermans B.V. - had still not been published, in violation of applicable Belgian law. When asked by at the time, Hermans stated that the external accountant had not been able to complete the annual report on time (quote) "due to COVID restrictions - such as the requirements to work from home and to allow only minimal staffing in offices". The problem was resolved a few months later by submitting the missing annual report.

In the meantime, the company's status in the Belgian company database is once again listed as "Opening of bankruptcy procedure" (announcement in the Belgian Company Newsletter). A quick look at the published financial statements shows that the last filed report covers the 2021 financial year. We have asked Ben Hermans for a statement on the reopening of bankruptcy proceedings, but have not yet received a response.

Update: (30.03.24, 23:30, cg)

According to the Belgian Business Register, there is now another company called Ben Hermans B.V., founded on March 11 of this year. The provider, which centrally processes up-to-date information on Belgian company insolvencies and similar events, has an entry for the original Ben Hermans B.V., which claims "Ben Hermans [...] was declared insolvent by a court in Brussels on 19.03.2024".
