Tedd Gallion or is it Barry Altman !!!

Please Don't Offend Poor Wittle Barry Boy... WTF

Have I slipped up here and missed the great take over bid of Amiga.org by Barry Altman... Shocked

Has Barry already taken over and is now posing as he who shall no be named (Tedd Gallion)... Surprised

Is Tedd Altman really Moochie in disguise... CRAP

Will Bill P bail out before the men in white coats come for them all... cyclops

Or is this just another day in Amigaland (soon to be renamed LaLaLand) and nothing out the norm here at all... Crazy clown Crazy

Ah cool, he's doing an interview? That might be enlightening.

But I suppose I'm probably being naively optimistic as usual.

Jesus wept, they just keep getting worse. What next? Are they going to pay someone £50 to dig up my Grandad, engrave a chicken head logo on his skull and offer him to me for £1500 as a living room ornament?

"As far as I know, CUSA is planning some work on software (AFAIK). Leo & Dammy has stated that they plan to bring an online store soon for Commodore OS that will allow users to purchase/download classic Commodore apps and games online (as D64/ADF files perhaps?) sometime in the future - so expect it to be Commodore-themed for the retro geek." - Middleman

So when he says "work on software" he means work on a web store to sell other peoples software? "classic Commodore apps and games" so he means other peoples software that was developed over 20 years ago? I know how I would feel if I spent £1700 on a PC worth £1000 and when I got it home I realised that my £700 CUSA tax had been invested in a system whereby I could be mugged again for 20+ year old abandonware and not in a system to provide tech support when my 120w PSU fails taking the motherboard out with it.

Then what happens to all the community generated good will that has seen abandoned software released to the remaining small community for free or even open sourced thanks to the efforts of some dudes who's names I forget. I guess it's better to have a community where developers can earn money than where that idea is so incredible that they just give their work away but it seems that CUSA will position themselves such that they can't loose and if anyone does it'll be the classic community. I mean CUSA business may fail but it's just a company, they can piss off and do something else. The Classic amiga users can't really.

Surely all that stuff is common heritage by now anyway?

If this is their Joyboard I don't want their Amiga.

P.S. "Barry is taking time out of his valuable day to do this interview so don't waste his time on substandard questions."

Christ, I don't care what people say about how rude the Scots are they wouldn't suffer bullshit like that and they wouldn't let each other try to bullshit others like that. "his valuable day" He's only got one? Why doesn't he do the interview the day after then? It's pathetic nonsense like that that stops professional companies with capable employees from posting on internet forums. Any serious company finding itself represented in that manner would take disciplinary action against the employee responsible.

P.P.S. Am I right in thinking that the last time CUSA pretended to care about the classic community it was to get them on board to buy some C64X's or whatever they were called? If so then is it a safe assumption that this is a BS PR exercise to try to maximise classic user purchase and minimise classic user dissent and is all just a pack of lies while they fuck us over for 20 year old abandonware?

Still, I remain open-minded rofl

We'll see what comes of this.

Best to close your mind now... Smilie

Both Barry Altman and Leo Nigro (his CTO) made it perfectly clear over the past two years that "our products are not aimed at the Amiga community", "Tough luck, You'd better get used to it & like It", and a whole load of other pompous arrogant bullshit that told the classic Amiga & C64 communities to basically fuck off... Mad As Hell

It's still there for all to see on sites like Amiga.org and Amigaworld.net, so if you have read it I suggest you should and then you will see why most of us would never have anything to do with the scumbag Barry Altman and his CUSA overpriced PC products... Wink

Of course there are still a few absolute brain dead muppets whom despite a having been told to fuck off by Barry & Leo that are mesmerised by the lure of getting an off the shelf case because it has the name Commodore and Amiga on it (even at a ridiculous price), sadly though there is no hope for people who are mentally challenged like this and it's best just to rip the piss out of em instead... Smilie

Now good old CUSA is going to rip off the muppets even further by selling them pirate copies of old games & software online and of course all the copyright mafia whom have screamed blue murder for the past two dacades will be the first to buy them as they will now somehow thing this is legal... Rolling Eyes

Can't wait till Barry tries that little scam as he's going to be up in court quicker than one of Dammy's replies in an anti CUSA thread and I'll make sure that happens the minute the bastard tries it... Smilie
