+OoMotala summary   MOTALA PARTY SUMMARY!


 So... This is it... A report from one of the lousiest 'conferences' so far..
The one I'm talking about is: 'AMIGA HALLOWEEN CONFERENCE 90' in Motala, Sweden.
It was held by PowerLords & Aurora 2-4/11 -90. I'm going to tell you a little
about the good(?) and bad things about it as good as I can.. Well, let's go..
It all started very well, when my companions Sir Henry & Dirk Gently and I
left our beloved hometown Eskilstuna in Sweden. We took off in my car at 4 o'-
clock in the afternoon and the journey went smoothly as far as a couple of swe-
dish miles outside Motala. Suddenly a strange noise came from somewhere under
the car, and I couldn't even change gear for a while, but suddenly it all work-
ed fine again, and we didn't think anymore about it...
About 6 o'clock we arrived at the school in Motala, and the car didn't sound
to well. We checked in (after a little trouble, bcoz the 'receptionist' didn't
really know what he should do.) and looked around a bit. After meeting some of
our friends, we tried to find a place to sit. So we did, but we couldn't find
any tables, so S.H. & D.G. went to look for some furniture we could use while I
(Ziphoid/RAZOR 1911, if you wonder) was trying to mingle around with the crowd
scattered around me. (hehehe...) Well, after a bit of carrying tables up the
stairs (thanx S.H., D.G., Mutant/Dual Crew & some other fellow I can't remember
(Stookie/Dual Crew, I think)) we could get up our gear in Dual Crew's room and
get going with some intensive computerizing...
After getting all things settled, I tried to look around and see if I could ÿÿ

+OoMotala summary find some of my friends among the amount of pedestrians walking around inside
the school.. (Pedestrians????) And think, I found some of them. Totally ab-
sorbed by the atmosphere of a totally un-organized environment...
As you may have guessed, the organizers didn't even know the inside or the
outside of their own trousers (at least, so it seemed to be...). I heard that
a couple of members of Powerlords have left just before the party, but I'm not
sure if that's correct. Well, it was VERY bad organized anyway. The list of
complaints could be endless, but I'll only mention some things in this text.
1. Drunk Finns: Some of the worst things I know is people who comes to confer-
ences and gets as drunk as possible as soon as possible and behaves as lousy
as possible to irritate as many other people as possible and thinking that
they are the coolest... Personally, I think booze & computers mix as good as
ketchup & ice-cream mixed in a glass with a little touch of coffee, i.e - IT
SUCKS!!! Not to mention any particular race or nationality, but it seems like
finnish people always likes to be the worst ones!! Just ask my good friends
Judas, UNO & Inv(al)id of SCOOPEX about their trip to a party in Finland.
5. The bad control of what really went on in the school, like drug-dealing,
little too young teenage girls running around and thinking they were in heaven
and stuff like that. I walked behind two fellows that smoked, and they were
absolutely NOT smoking ordinary cigarettes.
3. The organizing of the demo-, gfx & music-competition: Very very bad....
They had set up three prizes: 5000:- (for the best demo), 2*1000:- (for the
best tune and picture). A sum of 7000:-. But, they suddenly changed their
minds in the middle of the party and talked about a lot of other solutions,
including skipping both the music- & gfx-prizes and even lower the prizes in ÿÿ
+OoMotala summary the demo-competition too... After a lot of talking about it they
set the prizes to: 4500:- (demo), 1000:- (music) & 500:- (gfx) (I think!)
The demo-competition was won by Phenomena with a vector-demo from their new
coder Azatoth (hope I got it right, Olle). They also won the music-compo
with a song composed by FireFox (Yo Jimmy!! Twins and my hip-hop-version of
Dallas were better, hehehe...). The gfx-compo was won by a guy called 'Lorre'
or something... (Personally I think that UNO (then a member of Phenomena)
should have won!) Well, enough of that... Now back to the criticism...
4. Saddam Hussein: Kill Him!!!!

Well, there was some positive things about this party too.. Not really ABOUT
the party, but what happened AT the party. I met some cool guyz, like REDSKIN
in FAIRLIGHT) and of course some of my old friends like all other members of
PHENOMENA & DUAL CREW. (There was really no big groups there (not that I know
any members of anyway) except for us ofcoz.. Hehee.. Ego, or what?!?)

I think there's just some notes about how we got back to Eskilstuna again
left to write... S.H. & D.G. got sick of everything when we found out that
my car had broke down and called for S.H.'s father, who came and picked them
up at saturday night. I was the only Razorian left, and thought that there
was too much noise at the place I was staying (DUAL's room), so I took my
things and moved down a stair to PHENOMENA's place, and it felt like I'd got
my brain back since I could hear myself think again...
When the time had come to say goodbye to all my good friends (SOB!!) and tryÿÿ
+OoMotala summary to make my way home with my broken car (a FORD SIERRA by the way). I insured
myself that I wasn't alone. Two of my fellow Eskilstunarians, Stookie and
Mutant of DC followed me...
We came about 10km when the car sounded like ZAKABAKPLONG (my friends sfx),
and we began a little journey back to another DC member (POFF.. Ehh.. POW)
who lives in Motala and parked the car there. (Me and my father went back a
couple of days later and dragged the car home... That was NOT the funniest
way of spending 18 swedish miles in a car!) My car is now in my fathers custody
in his garage, waiting to get fixed... Fresh tips (from my father) says that
it's the gearbox that is broken and it's going to cost me about 5000-10000 SEK
to get a new one... Shit, I don't like it....
As my last words fades away and Sir Henry comes to write some bytes (BAJTS!)
of text in this bugged editor, I'd like to send a big thanx to Stookie & Mutant
of DC - my valiant knights in a shining Volvo for saving me from the fate of
being stranded in thy desolate wastelands of Motala & to Twins of PHENOMENA
(PINNOMENA!!) for driving me around Motala in a chase to find an open garage
to fix my car in.. (We didn't succeed, they were all closed! Thanx anyway,
Sir Henry: Ehhh.. Hello! Some words about the party: Ehh.. What's the
problem with party arrangers these days? Too bad you weren't at the party in
Stjordal some two years ago, arranged by RAZOR & CARTEL (and some other group)
That's what I call a party! Separate sleeping rooms etc. (not 100 lamers whir-
ling around, playing NEO-GEO!) Come to RAZOR-PHENOMENA-Z&C ECES in June 1991 &
see how a REAL party shall be arranged!!!
And so ends a sad story of a sad weekend in Motala! /Ziphoid & Sir Henry ÿÿ  ^7ÿú

Ðw ùÝP The Sad Life Of A Computer Freak THE SAD LIFE OF A COMPUTER FREAK Fact or Fiction? I only ask...... 

 When I was 12, the first symthomes
showed up. My neighbours had bought
theirselves a VIC-20 and a LASER 200, Blackstar/Cryptoburners
some irresistable goodlooking
computers and it was at that time I
got addicted to it. We could sit for
hours on end to type in listings for
the VIC from magazines like MIKRODATA

why I want to write something about vec
Well, in my opinion there are too many
vector demos and only a few of them are
really great! Most of them are simple
rip-offs! Now, don't think I say it's
easy to code a vector-demo but they are
so, so, so boring!! Who is gonna look

You see, what I'm talking about is ori-

and more becoming a way of showing how
cool the coder is. There's no such
thing as originality and entertaining
anymore! Only a few vector demos can
satisfy my hunger for demos! (hehehe!!)

-A man walked into his daughters bedroom and spotted her with a vibrating
dildo. My god, what are you doing? he asked. Listen daddy, she said.
I am 45 years old, fat and ugly and this is the best I can get.
The man ran away with tears in his eyes.
The next day, when the daughter came home she saw here father sitting in-
front of the television, in one hand a beer, and in the other hand the
dildo. What are you doing she asked her father.
-Well, said the man, I thought I'd have a beer with my son-in-law!!!

-What's a crocodile with an artificial dick?
-A crocodildo!

Well, that was all for this time, watch out for more jokes and if you
know a cool one, sent it to us!

òOôAll The Grey Cats ALL THE GREY CATS



Craig Thomas was born in Cardiff, in 1942. He has been working as a teacher,
but is now a full time author. His books are very appreciated and many of
them have been filmed for example FIREFOX. Some other books he has written:
Winter Hawk, Firefox I and II, Snow Falcon.


Kenneth Aubrey has arranged a defection from East-Germany.The defector is
the son of General Brigitte Winterbach the leader of East-Germany's secret
service. Brigitte is hisworst enemies since 40 years.
At the same time Sovjet and East-Germany are planning an invasion of Nepal.
When Aubrey just have succeded with Kurt's defection, Brigitte gets the
knowledge what has happened to Kurt. And Kurt's family can't leave East-
Germany. Later Kurt commits suicide and Aubrey is kicked from the english
secret service because of the failure with Kurt's defection. Aubrey has a
"son", Timothy, who was serving in the famous Gurkha-armyin Nepal and he
is still stationed there. He discovers what the KGB are doing in Nepal and
tries to get in touch with Aubrey. And the KGB is on the move and wantsÿÿ
òOôAll The Grey Cats Timothy's head. Now the action begins.. will Tim stop the russians? Or will
Brigitte get her revenge for Kurt's death by killing Timothy?... I seem to be
lucky this year. All books I have read so far this year have been great
(Except Candide, a novel written by Voltaire in 1700). In the beginning it's
a bit difficult to enter the action but after a while it became better and
better. Craig switches from one scene to another. So when one scene has
become exciting he switches to another scene but it doesn't matter. It's
like watching a movie, but much better.

If you haven't read any book of Craig Thomas before, I really recommend this
one to you...

òOôCoders Corner -------------------------------------------------------------------
Simple hints on how to make your programs work on all Amiga models.


A little tech-talk by Promax/Kefrens

It is always great when you get a disk with good new proggys/demos for
your wonder machine. You boot the disk and wobla what is this ???
It looks like somebody has chewed on the screen and spit it out again !!
What is the matter ??

The problem is dirty coding. (Hey this concerns you too!!). In order
to get your programs shorter and faster you often do things that are
illegal. (Now I sound like your mom and dad I know). So lets get down
to business:

Here is a list of things you must try to avoid:

- Use only values that are a multiplum of 4 when you set DDFSTRT
and DDFSTOP. Using eg. $32 and $DA will cause modulo problems
on the Fatter Agnus. (1M chip version)

òOôCoders Corner - Newer access not yet implemented registers. Eg. newer start the blitter
with a longword, people actually do this because they, to save time,
sets all registers with a MOVEM.L instruction.

- Always set x marked bits in the custom chips to zero. The x means
that this bit isn't implemented yet. But in the newer versions of
Agnus some of these bits are actually implemented featuring new
screenmodes etc.

- Always first store and then clear all bits in the DMACON and INTENA
registers, when you want to take over the hardware. And enable only
the interrupts you want to use. Use Copper1 jump ptr so that you do
not count on the system to activate your Copper2. You can find the
old Copper ptr in the gfx-base. Restore anything back to how it were
by using the values you stored in the start. Do not just activate
all the interrupts or the once you think the system uses.

- Do not access the blitter without waiting or at least beeing sure that
it is finished. I have seen people first setting some of the registers,
waiting on the blitter, and setting the rest. Don't do this unless it has
a higher purpose. (You can of course move any global settings like modulo
up to the front of your routine, to prevent these values from beeing
set multiple times).
ÿÿ ÿ3ÿ_
òOôCoders Corner - Remember to initialize all registers when you are using the blitter,
bitplanes etc. Kickstart V2.0 has some new overscan modes, this
will cause problems when a program thinks the modulo is always set to

I think this was all for now. There are of course many other thinks
that you have to be careful about, but I think that the above has described
some of the most common failures. Please try to correct some of the
things because it is boring having to "crack" a demo before getting
a chance to see it.
