The AmigaZone Announces New Web Interface

The AmigaZone SIG (formerly on Portal and Plink, and now hosted by CalWeb Internet) now has a World Wide Web interface!

Yes, don't rub your eyes or gasp it's true! You can now access the AmigaZone's message bases and files via your web browser!

However, you must be an AmigaZone member.

Our new webbalized interface is at http://amigazone.com/ (with no "www").

After loading graphics on that page an authorization requester appears. Enter your AmigaZone account and password and you're in! You can then use your browser to read and post to our message bases and newsgroups, see who's online, set your personal prefs (turn frames on and off depending on if you want them or you prefer table displays), and search and download in our vast file libraries.

This new Zone interface augments, and does not replace our WildCat BBS style interface at "telnet amigazone.com". And our private FTP site at "ftp amigazone.com" is still there too of course. Your same AmigaZone user ID and password get you into all three.

We have two kinds of AmigaZone accounts available:

  • a free two-week trial account. Limited to 120 minutes per day, no Internet email, and no multiple simultaneous logins. If you wish to apply for a two week free trial, visit our other web site at http://www.amigazone.com/ (the original Zone page which is still there and will not go away) and read how.
  • a full registered paid account. $19.95 per month. Gets you full 24 hour a day unlimited AmigaZone access to our files, messages, live chats, your own amigazone.com email address, and you also get a full unlimited access CalWeb UNIX shell account with 10 meg free storage and web page hosting! To sign up and become a paid member, see my .sig below. Be sure to say "AmigaZone Sent me" when you join, and signup is free. MC/Visa or have and invoice sent to you monthly. CalWeb's phone support has *NO* voice mail and is open 24 hours a day!
  • Many people have been clamoring for a web interface to the Zone. Okay, stop clamoring. You got it.

    (Please note - the "chat" function on our new web site will not work with anything but the Wildcat Navigator which is availble at www.mustang.com for Windows 3.1/95/NT only. I'm working on getting it ported to the Amiga and hopefully have success...otherwise all the other web page functions will work. And AWeb-II seems to have problems with it, but IBrowse 1.02 works fine as do emulated NetScape and Internet Exploder).

    Again, without an AmigaZone account you can visit this new site and admire it but you can't log in.
