    That is great to hear that an Amiga store is actually using Amigas for its business.

    Great stuff

    What about the site though... is it hosted on an Amiga?

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    No - its a Linux server unfortunately, but it is heavily modified to work with Amiga Ibrowse.

    That is a shame, but we all know that Amigas are not really up to the task of hosting todays websites. At least you are cattering for real Amiga browsers.

    We need a lot of bandwidth to cater for all the customers.

    However on the backoffice, networked Amigas are great for order processing and printing. We use Wordworth 7, Pagestream 4, IBrowse, Ghostscript 8.6, GS8Viewer for PDFs, EasyNet for networking.

    Not up to the task?
    There are a couple of sites hosted on speccys and C64s.

    Wouldn't want the emergency services to be hosted on those though.

    I used them for some of my GCSE coursework which got printed out on a 9 pin printer, but most of that was draft copies which later got done in MS Word and printed on a laser printer.

    Most of the work I do for college is either handwritten or done in MS Word, but I can't see why it couldn't be done on an amiga given a good word processor.

    I do sometimes mess around in DPaintIII for drawings.

    Abiword in Cygnix seems pretty good.
    Don't know how well it runs on classic hw but will be testing that over the next few days.

    Abiword for Cygnix works just about on Classic HW but it is very slow due to running 2 OS's and then Abiword. A PCI graphics card may help speed it up a little but not enough for it to be better than FW5 or WW7.
