Obituary for Jean Baudlot

Published 28.03.2021 - 12:15 by osz

Unfortunately the Amiga news is not always good.

As reported by the Polish Amiga Portal (Polski Portal Amigowy, ppa.pl for short), Jean Baudlot died a few days ago, on March 24th, 2021 at the age of 74. Jean Baudlot was a French composer and singer. His musical career began in the 1970s, where he worked as a composer for French pop and chanson singers, first with Polydor, later AZ and Discodis and finally, from 1979 onwards, for Delphine Records. In 1988 Delphine Records founded the game company Delphine Software International, from then on Jean Baudlot composed numerous pieces of music for the Amiga and Atari ST gaming world, including games such as Cruise for a Corpse, Operation Stealth and Future Wars. Together with Fabrice Visserot, he also composed the music for the game Flashback.

68k.news: A Google News parser for vintage web browser

Published 28.03.2021 - 11:58 by osz

I have no data to base my statement on, but most of us probably use the Internet to communicate and get informations. The latter often happens via Google News, a Google platform that aggregates news from various news sites. Unfortunately, however, Google News is not available to everyone, at least if you include the use of older home computers with somewhat outdated browsers. It's actually a shame when it's basically just about reading a digital newspaper.

Sean aka Action Retro on YouTube, whose heart clearly beats for old Macs, has apparently seen this problem as a challenge and created his own solution: 68k.news is a parser for Google News and the following news sites. The site dispenses with images and unnecessary ballast and offers pure information in text form. The site is tested on a Netscape 1.1 up to version 4 on a Mac SE/30.

We hope to be able to comfortably consume our news on the Amiga on Sunday morning, optionally with tea or coffee in hand, in the future. [...]

Blork was a very stylish underwater shooter being created by the demo group Scienide (http://www.scienide.de/) around the mid-late 90s, where you control a cute fish main character and his octopus friend within a very dark and gloomy underwater world.
