A few of my favourite web pages, which are well worth a
The homepages of WinUAE, an Amiga emulator for 8086 clones and
compatables running Microsoft Windows which is produced by Toni
Wilen. Toni is from Finland. Despite his busy schedule during
debugging sessions of each release of WinUAE, he always ceases to
amaze me in that he always has time to answer e-mail queries. Alot
of his work on the Win32 compile gets recompiled back to Linux,
which is where WinUAE originally appeared.
Cloanto's Amiga Forever package, a commercial product that includes
a fully emulated AmigaOS environment for you to run on your desktop
PC. Purchase the premium DVD version and get lots of other goodies
including liscenced KickStart ROM image files, and rare film
The 'World of Spectrum' pages. The web's largest repositry for
Sinclair Spectrum emulator fans. They hold virtually every Sinclair
Spectrum piece of software ever written for Sir Clive's Sinclair's
wonderful 1980's computer. They can also provide emulators for a
host of operating systems allowing you to downgrade your powerful
2.4ghz 64 bit athlon processor to Zilog Z80's 4Mhz specifications
and four million cycles per second. Relive the retro experience,
complete with one channel beepy sound, monochrome pixelated
graphics and attribute clash. Marvellous !
The homepages of Amiga. A wonderful computer. Jay Miner and the
crew created it. Commodore f*cked it up good and proper with poor
marketing. This machine may of been cursed, since there has been
endless buyouts of the Amiga brand, but it simply refuses to die,
much like the pheonix that arises from the ashes.
The homepages of MAME, also known as Multiple Arcade Machine
Emulator which is maintained by Nicola Salmoria and the mame team.
MAME allows you to accurately emulate over 3,000 arcade machines
using BIOS images from the original arcade cabinets.
ROM World. The largest repositry for ROM's on the internet. Here
you can find BIOS ROM images from over 3,000 arcade machines from
past to present all available for download for you to run under
Nicola Salmoria's MAME emulator. What ROM's you download is up to
you. Just consider you are breaking international copyrights if you
download any if you do not own the original arcade cabinet.
The homepages of many freeware utilities for Windows users,
including Mame Extra, which supplies a basic GUI for the command
line version of MAME as detailed above.
This site produces remakes that originally appeared on the
Commodore 64 and Sinclair Spectrum computers way back in the
1980's. Here you shall find many remakes of old 8 bit micro games
for Apple Macintosh and Windows. Steve "The Toker" Phelps was the
original founder of this very page. Sadly, Steve passed on in July
1995 so just give him a thought when you visit this page. Upon
visiting this page, you should download the remakes of Ocean's
software's 'Head Over Heels' and 'Exolon DX' and 'Manic Miner'
which originally appeared on the Sinclair Spectrum back in the
Home page of AR Hosting Solutions. A very good UK web hoster that
offer web hosting services at very competitive prices. They also
host this very webpage you are reading now... End of plug, you can
send me the money, now. If not, they can send me a crate of special
Useful Microsoft Window's utilities
The homepages of CCleaner, a Freeware Windows registery cleaner
that can clean up the rotting crap left behind from previous
installed programs you have long since removed. Download the latest
release of CCleaner here. I Highly recommended this, since it can
prevent Slowdown and stability problems.
The homepages of SSC Service Utility, a freeware utility for Epson
printer owners. Great if you refill your own Epson cartridges.
Includes an ink freezer so you no longer need to use that damn
cartridge resetter everytime you refill your own ink cartridges.
Can also reset death timers on Epson printers, too. Download the
latest release of SSC Service Utility here. Highly recommended!
A useful site which provides a forum for present and past
printers. If your printer has given up the ghost, sign up to the
forum, who can answer all your problems and give you tips including
advice on DIY printer repair and maintainance. You might just save
a fortune and find out how to refill your own printer cartridges
too. Here you can also find drivers and user manuals for many
models of you printer here as well. An essential visit.
Jimi Hendrix will always remain a much sadly missed guitarist and
artist. His creativity revolutionalized blues and rock guitarists
due to his uniqiue style of distortion and electronic feedback.
Jimi was also the perfectionist of the Wah Wah pedal. In 1969, many
were dumb founded by his style of guitar work. Today, many blues
and rock guitarists continue to copy his style 30 years on. It can
be said, "impersonating ones idol can only be considered as the
sincerest form of flattery". Furthermore, many have impersonated
Jimi's works, but none have come close. Jimi's words in his vocals
for "Burning of The Midnight Lamp" he sings: "Lonelyness is such a
drag". The webmaster could not agree more. Jimi shall no longer
find loneliness because many of his fans shall greet him in the
afterlife. I shall be in that que, too, as I suspect many other
Hendrix fans, who wish to shake the hand of an old friend. Thanks,
The homepage of guitar wizard Joe Satriani, one of my favourite
guitarists since the sad passing of Jimi Hendrix. Joe's musical
inspiration is based on Jimi Hendrix's works. Despite singing on
only just one album, 13 albums on and Joe Satriani is still selling
his instrumental guitar albums by the bucket load due to his pure
technical and musical ability.
The homepage of Steve Vai, another fantastic guitarist who
originally played with Frank Zappa and was taught by Joe Satriani.
Guitarists should listen to Vai's track "Windows To The Soul". It
will open your soul, as well as blow your mind.
Talk radio for imsomniacs. UK listeners can locate this station on
1089 and 1053 AM. Presenters include James Whale, Ian Collins and
fat man Mike Mendoza. Daytime listening just reveals boring sport,
but throughout the night this station reveals the best talk radio
in the UK, due to outspoken comments on old blighty and the state
our country is in due to the European Union, amonngst other
Station for rockers. Round the clock headbanging for digital radio
listeners in the UK. If you do not live in the UK, then listen via
the internet via this very web page. It makes a change from the
usual crap that manufactered pop bands offer.
