www.bambi-amiga.co.uk is a fascinating Amiga project. It’s the projects and services it hosts, but it’s the infrastructure itself – an Amiga 1200 based in England.
Meet the gentleman behind it and afterwards be sure to visit and browse the excellent sites on there. If you’re technically inclined, consider hosting your project using the services there.
Also, the excellent floppy disk service is very useful and used by Amigans the world over. View it here.

A new Settlers game is in development and is being led by the original creator, Volker Wertich, who very kindly agreed to be our virtual guest for interview at Amiga Ireland 2019. The event happened on January 18th & 19th in Athlone, Ireland. These interviews are conducted using a large sound system with an overhead projector. Here is an abridged transcript.

VW: I was working on the VIC-20 as you know
(VIC-20 user in the audience: “Wuhooo!”)
VW: and of course the VIC-20 originally had 3.5 KB of memory space. That’s not that much so whatever you’re doing, your project will probably be finished after a few months otherwise there’s just not enough space to do any big project there. Another thing is of course at the age of twelve to eighteen I guess you can learn things very very quickly if you are dedicated to them. So I cared much less for school and much more for coding and that was really exciting. I had some logic talent but not really a language talent so this was really helpful.
