As briefly mentioned in my previous entry, trying anything more fancy than sending a little data over the network, causes JamVM to wildly crash. I've yet not found the reason for this, it only happens for one particular example (that I've come across) and I can't find any obvious cause for it. It happens right after JamVM has actually ended, and the crash is according to Grim Reaper caused by the process of name "", which milliseconds before was named "jamvm.exe".

AmiWest 2013 dates and location announced!

AmiWest 2013 is already on a roll.  The dates for AmiWest 2013 are October 16-20, 2013.  This includes the next AmiWest Programming workshop on October 16-18.  We have added a day to the Programming Workshop for a total of five (5) days including both events.

AmiWest 2012 - Thanks to all!

We here at AmiWest and the Sacramento Amiga Computer Club wish to thank everyone who made AmiWest 2012 such a great success.  Our SACC members, Gold Sponsor Trevor Dickinson, Bill Borsari, Steven Solie, Chuck Washburn, and a whole list of organizers, sponsors, exhibitors and presenters really made AmiWest 2012 happen.

I've had some more progress with the networking. Instead of boring you with text about it, I thought I'd show you a clip of the progress and give an insight in how a day coding JAmiga might look.


Well, its almost like that.

Paula sound, so where does that 14bit audio come from?

So where does that 14bit stereo sound come from? You might have wondered, well after reading the hardware reference manual, it explains that 4 audio channels can be combined in to two.
In this mode, one of channels controls the volume (a value from 0 to 63) 6bits, and wave from is (127 to -127) 8bit, so if you add that up 6+8 = 14bit.
