Hiya Mickael, Laughing at the timing of your post.... Today, I took my A1200 Tower off my computer desk, and put it into storage. It simply was not being used. It now sits next to the 1994 Apple Mac, and Commodore 128. Put it this way... My AMD64/WinXP runs Euphoric (mostly) My Celeron500/Win98 run...

Run... Spider's Mentioning SPAINT Again

Hiya y'all, Years ago (well, 3) I told you that my Oric paint program, SPAINT ("Spider Paint") was a work in progress, and it continues to be so.
