Where does this boing logo come from?


It's modelled similar to:

Amiga Inc. used it as well.

It actually has a name, but I'll let ssolie explain that.

So you would prefer that authorities make it illegal for corporations to trick dumbasses into signing silly NDAs? You really find this necessary? Why can't you and others simply have enough spine and guts to not sign nonsensical NDAs??

Clearly it was a mandatory term of engagement.

And in the end does it really matter? At best Steve is unable to divulge more tales of inanity.

For the last decade, the only real thing that Hyperion has produced is litigation. We're now at the point where 4.x and PPC support is irrelevant. This is a good thing.™

It's time to move on... and forward.

He just enjoys the hobby like the rest of us, still does & plans to keep coding for the platform.
Don't believe the hatred posted by others, some like to claim they know everything when they know nothing. He would ask Hyp for the info to relay, in writing, at the show, he was the messenger & never added anything extra when asked. Some say that made him the liar, I was there, I know the truth unlike others. I'm a beta tester & work with him every day, I know what he does & how he thinks & he did his best to support the platform. I'm not happy with Hyp's actions, but I don't hate them either.

As well as all the beta testers, but we signed up more to help Trevor get his new systems going, me for the X1000. Steven is still coding for the newer systems & plans to keep doing so.

Right, we all signed up to help and enjoy writing and testing code for the platform. Most of us never expected to be paid anything. I was promised payment several times but always laughed up my sleeve and ignored it.

As developers, we were often told of "exciting new developments". I can't quote them, of course, but the public know of some of them. Solie was given the task of announcing some of them at AmiWest.

Now, a "lie" is when you say or write something that you know to be untrue. Several of the "exciting new developments" were announced prematurely, only later to be found impossible to make, would create backward incompatibilities or were too expensive to manufacture.

Does that mean that Solie was a liar? Does it mean that the management were lying when they announced the plans to the developers?

No, it only makes some of us appear bad at making planning decisions. I have been guilty myself of announcing software projects, only to find they could not be finished for some reason.

Please don't blame the messengers.

@tonyw

"only later to be found impossible to make.."

Not really, you need to maybe think more like hypervisor / AMP, and then you can have your Memory Protection and SMP on the 2en kernel. Think more like distribution computing.

hybrid AMP/SMP system will solve all problems (Except the endian issue, which we never fully solve.).

You need up two different operating systems, one with classic API's and classic libs, and one more like MacOSX running side by side.

so instead of focusing on SMP and Memory protection, they should be focusing on Hypervisor level 0.

I think can also be great for emulators, so you run Linux and AmigaOS on the same time.

Seems the best time period during my stay with OS4 was the first time Steven was serving as team lead and was regularly pushing out tweaks and fixes on AmiUpdate. There was a definite sense that the users were valued during that period. Hyperion lost something very important when the company moved away from that approach. Hyperion loses something important now by choosing not to have Steven on the core developer team.

Enthusiastic developers with skills who love the Amiga OS and have a willingness to work hard for free do not grow on trees, you know. Well, maybe they don't know.

you can also speak about your tentative to redefined the SMP term, as well as the "64-bit support" which was sold to the masses, and the promises which are still waiting to be satisfied and that you contributed to spread.

Multicore support is still a priority. 64-bit support depends on what you mean exactly. We already support large files and hard drives for example. The ExtMem feature allows access to RAM outside the 32-bit address space.

I would prefer corporations work for society instead of the other way around.

I am not sure, but I think maybe ‘mak[ing] it illegal for corporations to trick dumbasses into’... well, pretty much anything is called laws against fraud and I think we already have that.

@ssolie

So why do you sign contracts and NDAs that ensures the opposite?
Because this is Amiga, and society has little to no use for anything Amiga?

Again ?:)) You again repeat that thing which we all know will never happens ? Why you do so ?:) No one works on it, no one will be able to made a multicore support of how casual users hope. Why not say that it all false hopes, and enjoy what you enjoy while there is developers working for free still around ?

Surprisingly that for new console and ngfs you didn't have anything .. I was sure that at least you are one who is paid. Funny you are not :) Will be not suprise if aeon already contact you to offer something :)

But at least are you licenced ngfs work as your own , or you just doing it for free and give away all rights to ?

Will be funny to know if Colin for all his work on DOS have a shit too :)

"Surprisingly that for new console and ngfs you didn't have anything"

You tend to confuse Steven Solie with Tony Wyatt on this.
