Here’s a video someone put together to show how to set up WIFI access on PCMCIA-enabled Amigas:
Trevor Dickenson of A-EON showing off the x5000, A1222 Tabor and ALICE laptops.
According to him, he hopes that the A1222 will be commercially available by Amiwest this year (that means about 4 more months.
It appears that there was a fallout between Amiga on the Lake the A-EON/AmigaKit. That means there will be no local supplier for North American Amiga customers that want to get hold of the x5000 and a1222 Tabor boards. We will have to go international. As AmigaKit have been sending their stock of x5000 boards out to other distributors, they don’t have any in stock. I wonder what the problem ended up being?
Here is their statement found on their webpage:
“We have made a decision, concerning both A-EON and AmigaKit. The decision we made is grounded in our experience during the last 8 months in regards to both companies. As a result we have made the choice to no longer support A-EON or AmigaKit in any way, shape or form.
We are still here and “may” be carrying more stuff soon. However no more X5000 or A1222 or, frankly anything produced from either company. AOTL Donations is going on a temporary hold so we can refocus now that we are not supporting A-EON or AmigaKit.”
Amiga enthusiast and developer mritter0 (Mark Ritter) has released a new program called Workbench Explorer. It’s only for OS4.x (let’s hope a 3.x comes out soon), but it looks very good and has modern features for a navigator.

If you like informative podcasts and love the Amiga (why else would you be here?), then check out the Amiga Ireland Podcast. It’s full of news and interactivity between the hosts. I found it well worth the time.
Here’s episode 3: –> link <–
Thomas Richter, big Amiga.org forum contributor, has a good thread over at amiga.org about using the Amiga Shell. His posts are sprinkled about the thread, surrounded by comments.
It’s always good to find out command line tricks and syntax, so I recommend it. I learned a few things too.

Well, anyone around in the late 90’s remembers that there were many web browsers coming out for the Amiga at the time. The big one I recall was IBrowse, and it was very Amiga-centric. For a long time, v2.4 was the last big one that I used. I mistakenly thought that it was abandoned, but I was wrong.
Development has been continuing over the years and while it isn’t up to the specs of some of the HTML 5 JS/CSS current browsers (like OWB and NetSurf), it’s still a good browser. Check out the latest updates as of last month (April 2017):
