Internet News   Internet News : 10th Anniversary - New Website Launched
   posted by Rogue on 25-Feb-2009 13:09:33 (6961 reads)
Antwerp, Belgium – February 25, 2009.

Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to unveil its entirely reworked website which offers registered users substantially more functionality and easy of use.

Registered users are invited to re-register their software products in order to obtain access to the download section.

The relaunch of Hyperion’s website coincides exactly with the company’s 10th anniversary.

During the past 10 years Hyperion has been engaged in software development for platforms as diverse as Linux, MacOS 9/X and AmigaOS bringing top-notch entertainment software to these alternative operating systems.

Other projects the company was involved in over the years include writing a software rendering engine for Monolith (developers of Shogo and N.O.L.F.), adapting the U-Boot firmware for use on the AmigaOne desktop system, assisting Smiths Aerospace (now a division of GE Aviation) with expertise in low-level 3D graphics programming and providing IT consultancy services to Belgium’s leading mobile phone operator.

Since November of 2001 Hyperion has been actively developing AmigaOS 4.x, an almost complete rewrite for modern times of the legendary Amiga operating system which launched the multi-media computing revolution in 1987. Originally developed by Commodore for its line of Amiga computers, AmigaOS 4.x now runs on several PowerPC based hardware platforms including original Amiga’s with PowerPC accelerator cards and the stand-alone AmigaOne, SAM and Pegasos II platforms.

Hyperion Entertainment wishes to thank its loyal customer-base for its continued support as it embarks on its most ambitious project to date – watch this space for further information.

When BillE says "The layouts always look crap when using CSS." he may be referring to IBrowse & AWeb...

I'm going to speak up here as someone who has had to embrace website development, from C programming, for a living during the past two years.

I take pride in every project I create and absolutely make sure they are able to pass the Strict XHTML and CSS2.1 standards set by the W3C.

No it isn't. The layouts always look crap when using CSS.

Maybe in iBrowse, or aWeb, but then who cares if it looks good in those arcaic browsers anyway? Are we forever to be stuck in 1995?

Not all browsers support CSS.

Any browser worth it's salt should most defintely support CSS, anything that doesn't these days isn't even worth considering as a viable target platform.

Also it is so eay to write web [pages that don't use nor need CSS.

Yes, of course it is easy, but they'll look terrible and won't have a fraction of the functionality a CSS built website would have.

Not to mention that you'll have to use old, dodgy standards from 1995 such as frames and using tables to layout your pages, which is just bad programming practice.

I really hate sites that use it, they look a mess.

So you've never browsed the internet on a PC or MAC? Chances are you have and sorry to break it to you, the majority of websites these days use CSS and they normally never look like a mess on a real browser.

I guess if OWB gets a MUI interface I may start using that more but for now IB is still the best option - on well written sites that work on ANY Browser.

Although I'm not a fan of OWB's interface, it's a marvelous piece of software for AmigaOS and it means I can do my job on my Amiga using OWB and CubicIDE now.

Once again, to you, ANY browser should obviously include ancient Amiga browsers such as iBrowse and aWeb, sorry but it shouldn't.

I suppose we should all still be riding around on a horse and cart in a muddy field or using BetaMax tapes instead of Sky+ because we (as a Amigans) are so used to being stuck in the past! We have the technology here and now, on AmigaOS, so we should damn well take advantage of it. Be pleased that we can actually now do so.


Take no notice, the website is fantastic, looks nice and polished on AmigaOS here. Good work I say.

Good work I say also!

A mess on IBrowse, but great on OWB.

My re-registration went well.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Looks great! Nice job.

I must say, I'm interested in your "most ambitious project to date". I don't suppose it's worth asking for any hints?

You can ask as long as you don't expect an answer ;)
What can I say..? Well... it's ambitious... it really is.

Seriously, if you want to contact me do not bother sending me a PM here. Write me a mail

Looking forward to the next big thing, whatever it is
