 Drammen by night 2 - the truth.(!)


Since last visit in the charming city of Drammen, I've felt rather

You see, I was walking through the Drammen city, towards Mc Donald's for an
evening meal (I had a MINI-burger in mind..). When suddenly this LUNATIC came
running towards me in a dark alley, groaning and driveling like hell!!
I noticed that he had his dick hanging outside his pants (Jesus! It was mis-
shaped upon all!!) and that he seemed to have
pussy on his mind too..
By the horrid sight of this creature, running towards me, I got quite paralyz-
ed! So, when the monster brutally started unbuttoning my pants, I simply stood
there, like a little angel!
Overwhelm of excitement, the groaning human (?) seemed to get a bit dizzy..
He grabbed his misshaped dick and pierced it in my
ass!! After the dirty job
was finished, the sordid Norwegian staggered away from me, satisfied after hav-
ing accomplished another "seduce" (according to him, it WAS!).. 

what the beast hadn't count on, was that I had been carrying Aids since quite a
time!! Heheee.. (and more, his victim was a man, not a woman..)
So hopefully, there will be
NO more dreadful "jokes" or "articles" by Fallos
anylonger (dying in Aids..(at least, we may pray to God for that..)!

òOôWhat I mean about "Friendship" IS FRIENDSHIP REALLY FRIENDSHIP??

Here's a reaction on a little article in the last issue of 4D. In that article
Milkshake of Kefrens wrote some words about the Friendship movement! Milkshake
wrote that the Friendship movement is no such thing at all! Instead they tell
you how to buy the latest cracks etc..

Well Milkshake you are not alone in your opinion! I Vortex of TDC of RAF think
you are absolutely right! For instance, when I see the group list I see only
quite famous groups. What if a group called XXXXX wants to join this movement??
The group is not famous at all so they can probably not join at all! That's not
what Friendship stands for! The lame group doesn't crack and release only 1987
intros, however the group is very friendly!! I bet in a million years they can't
join the movement!

Now this is only my opinion and if RAF will ever join that movement it won't be
mine idea! So, a big handshake to Milkshake for his, in my opinion, true words!
Keep on going KEFRENS, always cool demos!

Okay, now I must have upset some guys who are actually in the Friendship move-
ment. So to all you guys...Get a pen and a piece of paper and write us your

Selectable refresh rates for the RAM. Most of these are supposed to be set at
Boot time Automatically. The program takes no parameters and will display the
current mode of your Ramsay Chip. Ramsay is the Custom chip in the 3000 that
controls the 32Bit wide Memory.

make a SuperKickstart 1.2 disk. You will need TrackDos which is PD program.
Make a copy of one of your SuperKickStart disks and have a Kickstart 1.2 Disk
Handy. Launch TrackDos and Select Trackdisk To Memory. Insert the Kickstart
1.2 Disk in df0: Disk offset is $200, Read length is $40000, Preferred area
Leave blank, Read from Device is df0:, then Click ok. note down the Address
that is Returned when Reading is finished and Choose Exit to go back to the
Main Menu. Select Memory to TrackDisk and insert your SuperKickStart disk in
df0:. Source Address is the Address you noted Down, but dont forget the
Preceding Dollar Sign ($). End address is +$40000 (the plus allows us to
insert Address as a length), Disk Offset is $400 and Write to Device is df0:
Click Ok and wait for the writing to finish. This Disk will now be an O/S
V2.0 and O/SV1.2 Kickstart. For Programmers the Layout of a SuperKickStart
Disk is as follows..

HOW FAST IS THE A3000 REALLY:P1 ------------------
-You can run many Benchmark Programs, But how fast is it in real time?.
We ran a test program that had to search through 2.5 megs of ASCII code to
find particular labels in an assembler source code and then re-read the file
for each 2600 labels to see if they had been used. After trying this test
on many different files the resault was aproximatly 600% in speed.

XCOPY III Source Code  A2000 45.2 SecondsA3000 5.8Seconds
XCOPY PRO Source CodeA2000 44.6 SecondsA3000 5.0.1 Seconds
Auto Cli Source CodeA2000 300.1 Seconds A3000 48.3 Seconds

This is an extremly worthwhile increase in speed. The assembly time of XCOPY 3
is also a useful test. On the A2000 it takes 2.5 minutes to assemble,
On the A3000 it takes only 25 seconds!. None of these tests used the Onboard
Maths-Coprocessor. The 28mtz Accelerator card for the A2000 does beat the
A3000 ,But only when working in FAST Ram. When any Chip memory access is done
the GVP card slows Drasticaly to be less than half the Speed of a standard 500
..The 3000 on the other Hand still manages to be 3.6 times the Speed of a
Standard 500.

òOôA3000 Hints And Tips
HOW FAST IS THE A3000 REALLY:P2 ------------------
-The hard Drive is the fastest i have ever seen on an Amiga. On a drive
that was 35% full and using DiskPerf from the FishDisks my A3000 returned
the Following Resaults..
READING: 920K PerSecond
WRITING: 830K PerSecond

GVP Claim that their card with the AT Drive performs at these Speeds, But no
matter how we tried,and using the actual drive they mentioned we could not
even approach half that speed, In fact the only SCSI card that comes any where
near it is the TrumpCard 16 bit - It gave 640K Read And 520K Write.

-In Dpaint 3 To Anim-Paint, Hold Down l-Amiga Kay and Paint. With A3000,this
Combination pulls down the Screen, & overrides. Go to Prefs, Hit the IControl
and change the qualifier - Dont remove qualifiers completely or youll have to
reboot or recopy icontrol and recopy icontrol.prefs file. Note that CTRL,ALT
& AMIGA are all used in Dpaint in one way oe another.So use the Shift key
with another qualifier. Stop Press: it seams that the lastest version of
Dpaint fixes this Problemb buy Re-Routing the Anim-painting key to the L-Alt.
Also note that in a Stippled screen if the Flood-fill function is used,then
the Machine will hang. This too is now fixed in the Lastest Version ÿÿ ÿ3ÿ_

òOôDanish Scene The Danish Scene... (Short)

Denmark has always been known for its beautiful girls, quality beer, bacon
etc. But Denmark and the Danes are also famous on the Amiga side. I.e. not
for bacon but for hiqh quality software like demos and games. One of the
recent examples on games is the sweet HUGO the STAR, a game which
recently had been used as a competition on one of Denmark's two Public
television channels. But also older games like Hybris, Battle Squadron,
Sword of Sodan and Datastorm was highly rated and got very positive
reviews. Anyway, let's come to the point. The Danish Amiga groups have
always been among the elite in the demo and cracking scene. Some of the
old legends are Trilogy (r.i.p), Dexion, Kefrens etc. And newer ones
are dudes like Crionics and Budbrain who has quite recently released
some demos of very high quality. It is very hard for me to judge who's
the best Danish group and even harder to make a chart. But atleast here's
a list of some of the most remarkable groups (no order):

Kefrens, Paradox, Dexion, Budbrain, Upfront, Silents, Flash Production,
Crionics, Arcane, Angels and Defjam (I.B.M, Marco, Weird Ed, Startrack etc),
Warfalcons (dead?). Hope I haven't forgot anybody.

If you wonder why I haven't mentioned Rebels, then it's because it wouldn't
be objective.

òOôHow To Get A Girl For many computer owners, it has always been a trouble to get hold of a girl.
Through 2 years of collection tricks how to do it, I have collected many
good tips, and the best of 'em, will now be written here.

1. Try to come to a party WERE she are. Try to be as much alone with her
as possible. Wait for the right musicpiece to be played at the party. When
you think it's romantic enough (In these days a piece like "A better love"
by London Beat would be great!) you start asking her a bit about which music,
films and so on she likes. You order you and herself a coke. Keep talking,
and try to be as nice as possible to her (I tried it..it's ok!)

2. If you know were she lives, when do this: Walk to her front door, ring
the bell, and just start talking! (Personally I tried this one - and it
worked!) It sounds rough, but it's great! You can add. something to it.
Find an old ladys-bike somewere (one which dosn't look like a bike anymore,
but a bike which you JUST can ride a few metres on..) And then you bikes
to her house, and asks her for a trip..I tried this one last week, and
it was great!!

3. If you have talked with her a bit, invite her on a film, in the cinema
(would be best) or by a videofilm. Let HER decide, the BEST would be a
film in the genre of Top Gun (Just to mention an good example, which every
girl likes..) And NOT horror films, or any raw and brutal films..
òOôHow To Get A Girl 4. If the girl which YOU likes has a girlfriend, when do ALSO talk to her.
It makes a good impression. Maybe you should ALSO invite her girl friend
in the first case. Do also write a letter to BOTH of them (Just seperated
by two papers), and give it to them. That makes them confused, and they
wants to find out who you are. The girl which YOU likes, must get a letter
more based on personal things, and that should make her love you. When
HER girlfriend will probably soon ask you, about you like her girlfriend
(the girl which you likes). I did also try this one, and it works.

5. Take your best friend with you. Walk to the girl you love, and talk
with her, and make jokes together with your mate. Make her laugh, and
keep saying funny things to her as possible, are you, as most computer
owners, good at making funny faces, when just do it!! A kissing effect
after her should work great! Many would get red in their face as an
tomato, but THIS is the right way to get the self confidence, and after
some time, you even don't notice anything funny in it, the GIRL just think
it's funny, and that was also the reason, right? This thing, should work
VERY good combinated with some of the other things, I use to do it,
and it works fine, especially combinated with point 1, 2 and 4.
The girl I tried it at, was pretty, nice, and maybe a bit hard to start
communticating with, but I suceeded at last. When a classmate said:
"You'll get an MARS if you ask her!!"...so I did...GOOD LUCK DUDEZ!
