I found this site, it is an alternative to google search engine, but only searches through sites related to Amiga, seems quite nice as most of those sites died having Amiga content, due to most of Amiga sites went down or were closed and it was hard to update everything, so you can try iAmiga Search

Don’t be very happy as this is nothing just a custom Google Search, which anyone can do, I remember I played with it when I was 15 years old.

started playing Warcraft!

April 16th, 2007 by Quatrux

Well, as I am quite an retro gamer and usually only play old games, but usually I don’t play, so due to I didn’t know what to do, I looked up my collection of DOS Games and started playing Warcraft using the good old and simple Dos-box, I finished the first mission quite fast, so I think with time I will play it and finish.. I remember on Amiga I played and finished with cheats and without cheats Dune II, that was really a great game, even though Amiga never had a version of Warcraft, I remember I tried to emulate MacOS on Amiga using Shape Shifter, due to I had an m68k processor as all Amiga’s had or added PPC, anyway, it was quite fast to run MacOS and Play the Mac version of Warcraft, but it annoyed me to emulate, so I never bothered to continue.. Also, Battlecraft had to be the game for Amiga to replace Warcraft, but as I know the project is/was abandon and never really worked as it could, only some demo is available with a map editor from the Aminet.. So I think I will enjoy Warcraft 1 Humans & Orcs ;)

new Opera version 9.20 released!

April 15th, 2007 by Quatrux

Just noticed that a new non beta version of the Opera browser was released, so I upgraded from 9.10 to 9.20, even though there aren’t a lot of changes, but the changlog says that there are some minor changes, even I don’t care about them such as start bar disabled now by default, it was always annoying me ;] they also added support for GIF animations in skins.. Now more interesting changes: CSS height:inherit now inherits the computed value, scripts in framesets now execute onload and applets inserted with innerHTML can now be called by JavaScript! I still didn’t get into it, but there is somekind of Introduction of developer tools. Moreover, some other security and stability fixes and similar, you can read the full changelog for Opera 9.20

Gaim renamed to Pidgin!

April 13th, 2007 by Quatrux

Even though this is quite old news, only Today I found time to post about it, the popular open source multi-protocol instant messaging client Gaim was renamed to Pidgin and now can be found on a new address: http://www.pidgin.im and im doesn’t stand for Instant Messenger, in fact it is a country address/code, the same is with .tv and .cc and .fm even though the .fm usually looks something like a radio for use, .tv something associated with TV :D Anyway, the Gaim in the beginning were called GTK+ AOL Instant Messenger, at that time there were no AIM, but AOL didn’t like it, so they just called it Gaim and everything was fine, but recently, AOL didn’t like Gaim as it is similar to AIM and the name is still a short version of GTK+ AOL IM = GAIM, so after all those trademark stuff and lawsuits, Gaim was officially renamed to Pidgin, a word which really won’t bring any lawsuit.. And it was announced that the version 2.0.0 of this software will come soon, so Pidgin/Gaim will be really much better in my opinion, I quite got used to the new name after a week :D Remember when people disliked the names Phoenix, Firebird, Firefox, Mozilla, but now everyone is used to Firefox, so I think the name change won’t really affect the great IM client.. :P

April Fools’ Day again

April 1st, 2007 by Quatrux

Time runs quite fast, another year, another April Fool’s Day.. I got fooled several times, but that isn’t nothing special, I don’t really care, but I visited Apex DC++ main site and saw some news, that Apex DC++ version 1.0 was released, didn’t even thought about the fucking fools day :D and downloaded, installed it and yeah, nothing changed, but I noticed it after re-installation, that there is no fucking Apex DC++ version 1.0 yet :P

And as always, Google introduced something, this time it is really evil ;)

Get your self Google Tisp :O
