I have only one question.  For what specific purpose did A-Eon acquire Amiga.org?

Amiga Inc as an aquistion?
Wouldn't it be nice if Bill would go for that?

I've had a serious bout of Amiga burnout over the last few years, but I'll be risky and say that I might visit more often now that a Trevor is running things. ;-)

Stability will help, and this buyout hopefully secures a stable future for Amiga.org for many years.
The Google search results redirect-to-ad crap has gone, which makes the site much more accessible again.
Fewer bizarre dramas are likely to occur than over the last few years, which makes your (mods) jobs a lot easier, and makes visiting more worthwhile for everyone.

All good so far from what I can see.
Mac Mini G4 (1.5GHz, 64MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.6
Powerbook 5.8 (15", 1.67GHz, 128MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.8.
