Amiga Interactive Guide- 5th anniversary
Wednesday March 13th, 2002
It is with great pleasure that I present the 5th anniversary
edition of AiG. It is difficult to believe that I've been working
on this site for five years. Personally it feels like 10 years.
However, the calendar doesn't lie. In March 1997 I began work on an
Amiga help guide to Workbench 3.0 - a replacement to the original
AmigaGuide document that shipped with the Workbench disks. By the
end of 1997 AiG had evolved beyond its initial coverage into a
guide to Amiga models, expanding to cover prototypes at a later
date. Now, after five years, it has almost reached another
milestone, the 100MB mark. The entire site is roughly 94MB of text
and graphics. I would like to thank everyone that has contributed
to the site over the years. I hope that AiG will be here for
another five years.
To celebrate AiG's fifth anniversary I have uploaded a massive
20MB of new material to the site! You will probably have already
noticed the aesthetic differences of the frame navigation window.
However, this is just scratching the surface!
The majority of this update is focussed upon the magazine
- I have compiled a complete index of every single issue of
Amiga Active - that's 26 issues of
Amiga reviews, features, news and Bluey in a handy web guide!
- The Amiga magazine section has
also been expanded with all-new images of several titles and have
redone some of the title graphics on some pages.
- I've also written a small description of the SEAL produced
fanzine, Total Amiga.
Amiga: The Next Generation
As usual I have updated several pages with the latest
information from Amiga Inc, Eyetech, and several other
Classic Amiga developments:
Those interested in the political workings of the Amiga industry
will not be disappointed by many of the items in this site
Finally, several sections have been redesigned, rewritten, or
altered in some way. The most notable is the BenchPress WB1.3, WB2.0, and
3.0 pages. As you can see below I have
also began to archive older site updates. This will improve loading
time when accessing this page.
