CANADA - Ottawa Amiga Show - Nov. 22nd
« on: October 21, 2003, 11:12:10 PM »
On Saturday November 22, 2003, the Amiga.info user group will be hosting the third Ottawa Amiga Show.  Once again, the show will be held at the Routier Centre, 172 Guigues Street, in the market of downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

There will be demonstrations of OS4.0 (beta) on a AmigaOne G4XE (PPC) system, probably the first such demonstration in North America.  There will also be a Classic Amiga 4000 system (060/PPC] also demonstarting OS4.0 (beta).  Both systems will be available for the public to try out.

With all of the interest in alternative operating systems, this is an excellent opportunity for the public to see the latest offerings from Amiga, Inc.  This includes the AmigaOne, and the binary portable Amiga Digital Environment (DE), currently available for Microsoft Windows, x86 Linux systems, ARM and MIPS processors.

Ack Software Controls has generously donated an AmigaOne G4XE DIY kit to be raffled off.  Tickets will be $2.00 each or three for $5.00, and Livewire Systems will include a ticket with each purchase made from them.  

The following is a list of the show exhibitors:

ACK Software Controls from Fonthill, Ontario will be demonstrating the AmigaOne, the first new Amiga hardware since 1993, and a modified Amiga 4000.

Ottawa's own Technomages will be showcasing their latest Amiga DE software, such as Eric Schwartz Puzzles and Memory.  Their software will be running on a Windows x86 system and a portable MIPS based Windows CE system.

ZEE4 of Toronto will be on-hand demonstrating their brand new Amiga DE offerings including SmackE.

There will also be at least two Amiga retailers at the show.  Cinereal and Livewire Systems of Ottawa will be selling a wide range of hardware and software for Amiga computers.

Finally, Amiga.info will be presenting information about the user group and answering questions about the Amiga platform.

The current position of the Canadian dollar makes coming to Canada an inexpensive proposition for our American neighbors.  At the time of this writing, $100.00 USD = $130.00 CAD.

Ottawa is about a two hour drive west of Montreal, five hours north-east of Toronto, and  nine hours from Boston.  You can also get to Ottawa by flying into the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport.

There is a mailing list that you can subscribe to if you would like to be kept up to date on the show details.  To subscribe, send an email to oas-subscribe@technomages.net.

Any questions about the Ottawa Amiga show can be directed to amigashow@technomages.net.

Amiga, Inc did not establish itself in 1985.  It began in 1999 as Amino, and bought the name in 2000.

However, seems like an interesting event, even if from the tone it sounds as if I'm not invited.

The tone of what? The only thing I can think of is the lack of MorphOS/Pegasos.

I'm in western Canada anyhow, and too far away to bother going, in spite of my pro-AmigaOne/AmigaOS4 stance.   :-D

I don't see why you would think you weren't invited.  Everyone is welcome.  I'm quite excited and I'm sure everyone will have a great time.

Well, I suppose you'll just have to come back.  That way, we can visit more pubs. ;-)

Hehehe...I'd love to. Unfotunately cash is extremely tight at the minute.

I've also promised to visit friends in Thailand and New Zealand before returning to Canada, so it could be a coupla years before I make it back.

Then again, I could win the Lottery this weekend. :-D

Hey Downix,

If you ever do come up, think you can deliver the Peg2 upgrade I ordered?  :-D

Anyway, I'll be at the show.

Yeah, but could you claim the Peg1 MB so I don't have to ship it?   :-D

Anyway, hope some of you (points to general Amiga.org populous) will show up.

If I'm coming, which is a big if at this point, I'm sure we can work something out.
