Warp3D Nova and Enhancer Package finally here for AmigaOS4.1 FE !Yesterday A-Eon released the long awaited Enhancer Package for Amiga OS4.1FE which contains alot of upgrades/fixes to numerous OS and Third Party programs, drivers, datatypes etc etc. BUT by far the most awaited update was for the Warp3D Nova driver which thanks to A-Eon and Hans brings AmigaOS FULL 3D support to AmigaOS with modern shaders and goodies of the GPU that I have no clue what they do but I'm just grinning knowing that their on my favourite OS ;-)
TO ALL AMIGA USERS: step up and support our developers by buying this update to thank them for all their work and effort to keep our favourite OS going strong in 2016 & beyond !!!

P.S, there's a new addition arriving soon :-)

New custom keyboard covers for my C64, Amiga 1000 & Amiga 1200 !Got tired of using an old battered keyboard cover for my C64, a very large generic plastic PC cover for my Amiga 1200 and a few pieces of paper taped together for my very unique Amiga 1000 keyboard so when I bumped into a recent thread over at amibay.com for custom made fabric covers by Retro-Protect I sent them a message, found out they allowed custom colours and decals of your choice to be placed on the covers and placed my order.
Yesterday they made their way over to my man cave and here's what all 3 of them look like out of the package along with care instructions :-) (for those interested: cover to be hand washed only, do not tumble dry, iron on inside of cover on a warm setting, do not iron the logo directly, shrinkage may occur)
I'm very happy with quality of the cotton fabric covers and more importantly the proper fit for all my keyboards. Customer service was great and I was thrilled to have the choice of choosing my own colours and decals.
As usual and unfortunately I have too many little projects to talk about here but alas spare time is yet again my enemy so I leave you with the now traditional view of what my man cave looks like today.

Getting my X1000 quieter & cooler !Been a while since I started a thread over at amigans/ amigaworld.net over concerns of CPU temp and noisy CPU fan that came standard with my X1000 but luckily mainly due to a new great custom solution for our X1K's from Marcus Computer called MagmaBreath my problems have been solved :-)
The installation is clear and straight forward as noted below. You'll need 45 minutes, basic tools and a clear workspace:
The payment and delivery from Marcus Computer was pain free and the CPU heatsink and fan came safely bundled in a well protected package.
don't forget to remove the protective plastic over the thermal pad!
I'm very happy with the reduction in sound from the stock heatsink/fan combo as it's quite the difference and for the effectiveness of MagmaBreath the numbers from X1Temp docky speak for themselves!
Prior to the upgrade after 48 hours of constant use numbers were:
CPU- 47 deg.C
with MagmaBreath installed after 48 hrs I was pleased to see a significant decrease:
CPU- 38 deg.C
