Announcement   Announcement : Happy Belated Holidays and 'Thanks' to Amiga Developers
   posted by wegster on 9-Jan-2006 1:06:24 (4167 reads)
I'd like to take this time to simply say 'Thank You' from all of us Amiga (and Amiga-like) users to a few Amiga developers out there, sort of as a belated 'Happy Holidays, and Thanks!' gift.

Sorry if it's not money, women, or a new car, but I've purchased a few copies of the full version of CubicIDE in the hopes you guys can find it to be of help to you in current and future development projects.

Details on CubicIDE can of course be found at Deitmar's website, at:
http://www.dietmar-eilert.net/cubic/index.htm

Note that any errors, omissions of other work done, and of course, typos, are solely my own



Having said that, a warm thanks, and a copy of CubicIDE, go out to, in no particular order:

Chain-Q/Charlie - Both a MOS and OS4 owner/developer, working on the Free Pascal Compiler port for OS4. It's truly nice to see some doing work on both platforms IMO. Free Pascal Compiler info can be found at:
http://www.freepascal.org

FPC is used by Pixel32 and other programs. More info on Pixel32 can be found at: http://www.kanzelsberger.com/pixel/?page_id=12 and a screenshot of Pixel32 on MOS at: http://pixel32.box.sk/shot/pixel_mos3.png

Ami603 has released Emperor for OS4, available on OS4Depot , a very impressive looking GUI and Program builder tool for OS4.

Deniil715/Daniel is part of the OnyxSoft team, which has written software for AOS classic, MOS, and OS4, and most of us will recognize from his contribution of the Mplayer GUI, available from OS4Depot

Bean/Paul is responsible for bringing us TuneNet ,
also available on OSDepot, as well as the Ogg-Vorbis TuneNet plugin.

All- please drop me a PM or respond via email if you haven't already to let me know where to have CubicIDE sent to.

Before anyone asks, I chose the above people with some help, as well as with some inside knowledge as far as some people already having CubicIDE. There are
many more developers that could use our support, whether it's in the way of contributions via PayPal, betatesting and bug reports, or simply just dropping a note to say, 'Thank you!' can make a difference to some.

Happy belated holidays to all AmigaOS developers, and may your lives and code be bug free!

Very nice sentiment!

It's always nice to know that your work is appreciated -- and this was a very generous way to show it.

Well done Wegster !

It would be nice if a developer link could be setup to receive PayPal donations to individuals or on specific projects.

I believe this will promote AmigaOS development further and support the developers we have.


cheers !

Very nice wegster, we'll all benefit from this.

I'd also like to thank all the developers, HW/software, for all their hard work.

Yes. Stand by on this, all I can say is something is in the works, although slower than preferred.

In the meantime, all I can say is those of you that enjoy people's software, let them know, however you can. If you're able to do a PayPal donation of a few $ to any of the above or other projects- SimpleMail, SFS, YAM, WookieChat, abc-shell, clib2, adtools, or the various MOS and/or AROS projects and bounties, whatever you appreciate...in some cases it means a lot, and without software, we'd all be SOL.

If you can't afford donations, many devs I know are happy to simply know people appreciate their work, and some kind words or an email can get people through those days from Hell.

Anyways, I appreciate the sentiments shown me, but this is all about our developers.

To them, as well as Hyperion and many individuals..

Hi wegster,


In England they say "Bully for you"*, and I think it's a compliment, but if not, that's a most generous and helpful and thoughtful move on your part. Thank you.


Yes, now the praise for the Amiga OS 1.0 through to 3.9, and AOS4.0 NG!!!!!!






I've programmed in Basic, and I know the difficulty, pain and wonder of coding.... When you press RUN (compile, for C'ers) and you're SURE it's right this time.... then.... ARRRGGGHHHHGRGRGGHHHH!!!! "Guru meditation", maybe, whatever.... IT'S STILL WRONG!!!!!!!! (< --- I love this smiley (smiley? Nothing of the sort!).... That's ME using WINDROSS, any version... )


I've found that programming is it's own reward, and I'm sure it's for others as well. But, that's not the point, is it?


People do this FOR A LIVING as well....

If YOU use their SW, because you need it, or because you enjoy it, it entertains you, or you make considerable amounts of money from it, well, thankatude and $$$ should flow into a certain direction on those basis.


This applies to movies, books, songs and inventions. (Service in restaurants.)

Unfortunately, some people don't see it that way. And, it's greedy corporations as well, that suck up 70 to 90% of the revenue sometimes, and sit and make huge profits off properties from the sixties and even the fifties, when the artist has been long gone. It's pretty ubsurd really.

We keep trying to weigh it, and there's just no real way to do it.....


Oh well, enough of that.


No matter what anyone says, Basic has to exist, and it is good!

But, I've learned from it that, C(++) and assembler must be maddening!!!!



Anyway, I really appreciate all that's been done. THANK YOU.




* I looked it up on the internet, and there was one, not so definite explanation, seemed to fit, I don't know, so if there any Brits on here.... Rumour has it, of the 4009 members, some are apparently from there, again, I don't know ....


P.S. It's just past Christmas, and New Year is yet to come in Eastern Europe.... And China has New Year at the end of January to mid February? I just love when I hear, "hey, it's ALWAYS a holiday, somewhere on Earth".

Thankyou very much again!! Very much appreciated!

@all

And it's also true what wegster says about support. As a developer it's the bugreports, suggestions and appreciations, in e-mails or on forums, that keeps me going!

Never go by the belief that "someone else has probably already reported this bug" because that is often not true (or I make *very* bugfree software ). Even if you think someone has posted the bugreport you should do it anyway because that only gives me energy to fix it even faster!

Getting money donations isn't that useful unless the developer is very very poor or the donation is very big I think. If someone feels like giving something worth cash it's then better to do like wegster and Dietmar and buy a program, or do like Alan Havlik who sent me a big box or very tasty cookies a long time ago. Thanks!

Great stuff wegster!

I'd like to remind all the software users out there to do something, anything, to acknowledge the remaining developers and welcome any new ones for whatever platform you prefer. Even a simple email would do. Without feedback this hobby gets rather boring and when developers get bored they tend to move on.

In other words, if you can spend the time to read web forums all day I think you can spend a minute to write a quick email to your favourite developer to thank them.

I would just like to echo this post, because I agree with it all.

I don't ask for anything for my programs, but emails from users, with bug reports, suggestions and notes of thanks are always appreciated. It's nice to know that somebody is using the software, and if it wasn't for os4depot's download stats, I would think that nobody was.

As for the last part, I was once sent a fruit cake a long time ago. I'm not a big fan of fruit cake, but this was a bit special and utterly gorgeous (in fact, it came from here). I'm somewhat annoyed that I can't find the name of the gentleman who sent it to me, but it does make me wonder where all the nice Amiga users went.

@wegster

Good on you for showing a bit of community spirit.

Chris

OK. Then I'm dropping you this note to say "Thank you!", since you -too- have
made a difference.
