Oregon Research Amiga products are now free!!!
« on: September 04, 2010, 04:23:44 AM »
Good news: I contacted the ex CEO an owner of Oregon Research, which was the Amiga company responsible for releasing Amiga software titles such as:

GameSmith Development System (game programming)
Termite (BBS software)
Termite TCP (tcp-ip stack)

He kindly allowed me to put all Oregon Research Amiga software on the Public Domain!!!

Email exchange follows

Greetings,

Sorry for the delay, I was in the hospital and out of the office.  Yes
you have my permission to place Oregon Research Amiga products in the
public domain.

Cheers,

Hi, I am sorry to bother you with this fifteen year old stuff. The thing
is that I have bought Termite TCP Amiga network solution, second hand, a
couple of years ago.
It is great sofware for Amigas, and since you have been in the past a
great supporter and developer for this now small Amiga community, is
that I dare ask you if you could please allow me to put all your Amiga
files on the Public Domain, so that they are freely available to
everyone. I would also add if you think it is necessary, that you wont
provide any suport whatsoever, and not be liable for any damage at all.
By the way, if at some point, you are willing to give out the sources of
your excellent Amiga software for non commercial purposes (If you still
have them), that would be even better.
So please, just say yes.


Thank you for your time,
Regards,
Ignacio Gully

Aminet will require an email direct from Robert Luneski, but I guess that shouldn't be a problem.

Cool! Termite TCP was what I used to get online back in the day with my A1200. It was a great program!

I dont have access to the sources, but I will ask Mr.Luneski for them.

And the versions I have now, are not mine (my Amiga is in a non working state at the moment).

The last version of Termite TCP is 1.60 (circa 1998), if someone has it, please share it :)


Anyway, here are two downloads for your enjoyment!

Nice work, and thank you Oregon/Mr. Luneski. I always thought GameSmith was a cool product.

O.R. - just terrific. I used Termite back in the day, bought and registered, and the TCP stack too. They made good software!

Thanks Mr Luneski and O.R. !
