If I was Bill McEwen I would be scared of you, because you're the type who suddenly becomes a stalker or even worse attacks the man physically.


I'm not sure that I have seen any evidence that Helge is prone to physical violence. So saying he is the type who would is probably a bit un-called for.

Well, al least those late-nite TV potato peller sellers DO show the real thing, McEwe (no, no 'n' missing ) showed NOTHING... A true and professional smoke seller, I'd say.

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

Now we have to look for a solution.


A solution to what? Amiga is running perfectly fine for what it apparently needs to do, which is to act as a cover for international money shuffling.

Quote:
Ask Fran Dramis, what Amiga Inc. is doing and how the firm is working.


It works like this: amiga.com is there to pretend that there is a legitimate business. amigaworld.net, amiga.org, Amiga-related "products" and "news", even people like us posting here, we are all involuntary accomplices in this, as we give it a superficial appearance of legitimate activity. But the economics and the technology do not add up, as you too noticed. It is irrelevant though whether it makes sense to Amiga users or IT analysts who observed the history of Amiga, its results, and its competition. It is just a slight cover up for the FBI, the SEC and the likes. Some financial criminals use failed banks, others use "Amiga, Inc." So far, it worked. Will Fran Dramis tell you this? I don't think so.

Bill McEwen is the exposed clown who is there to publicly support this, no matter whether for 8 years in a row he keeps repeating the exact same words that make no sense, he is there to do exactly that. In the meantime the real business of Amiga is to be used as an excuse for the millions of dollars changing hands (for known examples like Tapul and Prokom and ITEC I am sure there are many others we don't know about). Bill McEwen is probably too deep in this sh** by now to easily get out.

It all makes sense if you look at things from this perspective. Even the Kent stadium attempt, and the energy put behind fighting the Hyperion challenge. To try to protect its facade of legitimate business Amiga spent millions in ReedSmith and other attorneys. Much more than it invested in products. Amiga is a company controlled by lawyers and international "finance" men, and Bill McEwen is their puppet.

We have to convince Fran Dramis, that we have to stop Bill McEwen


Why? Bill McEwen is perfect for the job! An ambitious former truck driver who is incompetent but reasonably good in articulating his mouth, and will do anything you ask if you buy him a Maserati and a few gadgets. I can't imagine a better man for the job.

If this theory is true he may end up in jail for aiding in money laundering, etc., but that's his problem. His children will have had good memories of Christmas presents, at least.

Bill...more of the same.

"We took the Amiga, we virtualised the operating system and made this new product called AmigaAnywhere"

Pffftft.
